    AR Update

    Well, I finally got my new handguard rail system installed for my Rock River Arms AR15. I sent the Daniel Defense handguard back (Thank You John / Rainierarms.com ) and decided to go with a Samson free float. With the Samson you're able to have a continuous rail across the top of the AR, which I want. I think it's looks great! I can't wait to start adding all kinds of goodies to it....

    Well JS that is one fine looking weapon you got there. That's got to be a blast at the range. Your going to have to break your piggy bank and put some goodies on that rail. Good luck and good shooting.

    Thanks! I'm really happy with it... I can't wait to start adding stuff to it.

    So far the list is:

    #1. Forward Grip... either Tango Down or CQD

    #2. Side rail mount sling swivel (I removed the extra one attached to the barrel)

    #3. Optic... either EOTech or Aimpoint... I'm leaning towards EOTech.

    Yes, that does look sweet.

    I would go w/ the Eotech. If I don't buy a PS90 (I am supposed to go meet someone to shoot it this weekend to see how I like the gun), I may buy an AR. And, I've decided that I want an Eotech no matter which one I pick.

    Credit Cards can be a good thing... Embrace your debt! Remember, you may need that AR if the shit hits the fan someday... which could be...oh..next week...? You never know...

    Well, this weekend I'll be trying out that PS90 - If I don't like it afterall, I have my eye on the S&W Tactical AR. I've been researching it, and it has everything I want on it already. Also has good reliability, and the S&W service if I did have any problems... We'll see....

    I have an EOTech on my deer hunting shotgun. (Half of MN is shotgun only) I absolutely love it. I have the one that uses the N Cell batteries. I would recommend the one that uses the AAA or AA batteries. During this season's hunt, the scope died because the batteries failed. Had to run into town and get some replacements. I generally have AAA or AA's on hand.

    That is a great looking Rock River. Did it start out life as the "entry tactical?"
    A Rock river AR is the next thing on my list, but my wife informed me that if I get one, she has to have a Stag left-handed model.............I've created a monster.
