New Raptor Custom II Range Report

Federal AE 230 gr. FMJ, 7 yds. standing, intermittent light breeze, mostly Kim-pro tac-mags. Temp. mid 50's - low 60's, clear as a bell.

First shot out of the new weapon

First 8 rds


64 rds. through the tac-mags

Full 100 rds.


Had 1 FTF on rd. #79 from a 7 rd. Kimber steel mag which had performed flawlessly b/4; I'm inclined to think that one was me. It pretty consistently drops the cases in about a six foot area, a big plus.

I think I'm in love.

Lol..... of the gun with GSR on it yet. For all we know you could have used a BIC pen to jab holes in the targets.

Sorry, just finished cleaning and oiling.

Will this one do? Will be glad to show a pile of dirty patches, though.

But of course, they might have come from the BIC pen.
