AK Wood Furniture Refinishing Combloc Customs Arsenal SLR 106UR, AKS-74U Krink with Fake Suppressor

 finally got my Arsenal 106ur sighted in. This rifle is really accurate. I have a fake can on the barrel as a shroud, as I haven't gone the SBR route with the rifle (not sure if I will). I thought the faux suppressor might degrade accuracy, as it's a little heavy, but it hasn't. The SLR 106ur can be a bit pricey, but I really dig Krinks, so I sold some other rifles to make it happen. I really love shooting this rifle!

Red Star Arms adjustable AK trigger

 finally got the chance to really try out my newly installed Red Star Arms adjustable trigger. I installed the RSA trigger in my Romanian SAR 3 (AK 74 clone in 5.56 NATO). It took a while to install and adjust, but it is the nicest trigger I've experienced. My brother and I put it a bunch of rounds through the rifle to test it out. It's a joy to shoot. I really dig this trigger. It cost about $75, but is well worth it.

MFS .223 55 Grain FMJ Ammo Test in Gas Piston AR 15

I picked up a case of MFS .223 55 Grain zince plated FMJ a while back and finally was able to test it in my gas piston AR. I was only able to put 40 rounds through though. Unfortunately one of the mags had some really old Wolf (old black box) FMJ. I should have left that stuff at home as it's underpowered and gave me nothing but stuck cases in the past. Well, sure enough, it performed the same way this time. After one round I had a stuck case and I forgot to take along my cleaning rod to extract it! Aghhhh! 

The MFS seemed to work really well. The guy I bought it from at the gun show compared it to Silver Bear. Have you guys had any luck with MFS zinc plated .223?

August 8th Movie = AK Action!

I haven't seen this movie in its entirety, just clips.  It's about a mom getting her son from South Osetia during the Russia-Georgia conflict. I don't know what the message is, but there is some sweet AK action!

Steel Case .223 Russian Ammo Wolf, Brown Bear, Silver Bear &Tula in my POF USA Gas Piston AR

am going to test four different types of two different manufacturers' .223 Russian ammo in my POF P-415 upper. I will test the following ammo:

Wolf 55 grain FMJ, Silver Bear

Silver Bear .223 62grn HP

Wolf Military Classic .223 55grn FMJ

Brown Bear .223 55grn FMJ

I plan on firing 40 rounds of each. Much like wine tasting, I want to make sure that my upper has a "clean pallet" for each flavor of ammo. I want to know what steps I can take between firing each type of ammo to insure a "fresh start", and be able to accurately note/judge each type of ammo. What I'm trying to see is which type of ammo will feed reliably in this POF upper. I had several stuck cases using Tula 62 grain HP.


2010 Annual Pumpkin Shootout Mossberg 500 Style

November 2010, the annual pumpkin shootout. It was a nice autumn day and perfect for shooting some pumpkins. My brother Pete tried out his new Mossberg 500 for the first time. Those pumpkins didn't stand a chance!

First Real Day of Fall 2010 Shooting Session

My bro. and I took went to the range on what seemed to be the first real day of autumn in the Southeast. Finally, some range time where we were shooting and not sweating bullets.

We took some of the Tula .223 62 grain HP ammo out and sighted in my AR, which didn't like the stuff at all. I had several stuck casings after about 30 rounds. :(

My SAR 3 loved it though. I am tempted to try some of the Wolf 55 gr. ammo in my AR to compare it to the Tula. I don't remember if Wolf is made at the Tula factory or Uly.

Oh, I thought that I through in some mock tactical action for laughs. No offense to those who are serious about that stuff.
