No issues so far, though I think I need to buy some new batteries, the pack I bought doesn't last terribly long in it

Did you get an early 509 with the magwell wobble? I remember reading that was a big problem when FN introduced those. So far I've only gotten to handle one at a gun store but they seemed like okay guns.

duty grade MRDS right now
the Aimpoint ACRO and Doctor Noblex as well. it's worth noting that neither the 507 nor 407 are reliable with some submachineguns. tried on both a UMP and MP5, as well as a Colt SMG. something about the recoil impulse breaks the electronics i guess, but they stop working after a couple mags. i doubt this would be an issue on a pistol.

Heard nothing on the Noblex and only bad shit about the Acro P1.

Edit: I'm referring to MRDS on duty pistols as tested by Phoenix PD, who has one of the most stringent testing programs for them in the country. The RMR and 507 were the only two they could not break. Same goes for BUIS with Magpul Pros.

i've been toying around with a P-1 on an Glock 23 MOS for a little while and it seems to work fine through a combination of drills, duty holster/duty belt day to day carry, and dumb things like "responding to B&E on tricycle" where it's constantly being knocked on something. battery life is meh.

the Noblex has been around for a while and in my experience works fairly well, but isn't really NV friendly and has limited adjustment - if you can't zero it on your specific pistol, then use a different optic. battery life is on par with Aimpoints, and some would prefer a smaller dot than 3.5 MOA. using it as a backup sight on a rifle is pretty solid, it was among the first ones to be available for that purpose.

I'm going to use my discount with Aimpoint to get a Acro P2 for my buddy and depending on what he thinks about it, I might get the mailbox for one of my pistols or try it on my MP5. NV friendly is practically a requirement these days as anyone can get a monocular now to fuck around with. I like the 5 year always on shit with current optics but honestly isn't a big deal to me as long as you don't have to remove the optic to change batteries (looking at you, Trijicon). I hope Eotech re-enters the MRDS market with something a lot better than their last attempt.

Nope, nice and tight

Saw something novel today. Molot is selling SKSes converted to 6.5 Grendel. Threaded barrel, too. Not sure if they're available outside Russia though. No accuracy results yet, although I'm not expecting much from an SKS. Around 2 MOA at best.

Looks a little tight. The poster said the increased length starts causing issues around 7 rounds, so they may end up limiting it to 5. Combined with HiCal's mag adapter this could be resolved pretty easily though.

I am Rhodesia-green with envy.
Really I regret not sending the magazine with for refinishing as well now, but that’s not as much of a problem. The finish is really really nice and I’m thinking of getting a sling for it as well.

Seriously, if you’ve got the right century import, or want your FAL patterned after a certain country send it to Mike. In my case this is just a classic L1A1 SLR (admittedly with a slightly shorter barrel due to the threading and the original flash suppressor being cut off.

My current EDC pistol is a Dan Wesson Specialist 1911 in .45 ACP, but I also have a SIG P226 TacOps in 9mm and I recently got an FK BRNO PSD that I plan on carrying in cold weather since it's 7.5mm cartridge will be more effective against heavy winter clothing than typical pistol cartridges.
I thought REINFORCED DENIM was just a /k/ maymay.
On the brighter side, Based Benitez's decision on assault weapons is generating ass salt.
Don't give them the traffic. If you must share agitprop then post the verbatim or archive it.

If dry wall can stop a bullet, heavy layers of clothing can slow it down too. That’s how Kevlar works.

The proposed ATF rules for braces pistols are out and don't bother even looking at the new point system they want as literally the first sentence on the form makes it pointless.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives reserve the right to preclude classification as a pistol with a "stabilizing braces" for any firearm that achieves an apparent qualifying score but is an attempt to make a "short-barreled rifle" and circumvent the GCA or NFA
So yes you can literally follow the law to the letter but if some fat mouth breather at the ATF decides you aren't following the spirit of the law then it's off to jail.

I would suggest everyone leave a comment.

The various 2nd amendment groups had better be readying a legal challenge to this law ASAP.
