Thursday morning at the range.

Did a little handgun and rifle shooting this morning. Strong winds dampened the fun and cut it short a little, but still a good time.
Shot a couple of my non-1911 45's a Glock 41 and an M&P .45, like the M&P love the Long slide Glock. By the way it wears Wilson Combat Vickers battle sights, fiber optic front. Great sights for Glocks.

Rifles shot wear my SCAR 17 and a 14.5" AR. Optics on the SCAR are a Primary Arms 1-6 power and a 1-4 power Bushnell on the AR. Even on a real windy day and with combat not precision designed optics and triggers, 4" groups at 100 were not a problem with either rifle.
I built the AR lower myself, Spikes Tactical receiver anti-walk pins, Magpul furniture and used a Addax Tactical 14.5 upper I got in a trade many years ago. There is something different about this AR, can you spot it?

Never seen a charging handle set up like that and do you have an ambidextrous magazine release.

Totally green with envy for the SCAR. I hope to get one someday.

Is it as awesome as I think it would be?

Addax side charger, a good design functions great.

Not a ambi-mag release. That is a BAD lever(battery assist device)it allows you to lock the bolt to the rear and release the bolt with your trigger finger(without putting your finger in the trigger guard). I have one on two of my AR's, they work really well for CQB, run and gun training, really speeds up your mag changes.

I really like it, just a solid battle rifle. Eats any ammo, brass, steel, etc. Never malfunctions, the design of the gun/bolt just shrugs off the powerful 762x51 recoil. Making multiple shots, even mag dumps easy.
Very accurate especially since it's only a 16" barrel.
Negatives LOUD and heavy military trigger.

Seems like I have heard about the loud report and heavy triggers before.

Would it be worthwhile or over kill the suppress that bad boy or is 308 to fast.

A lot of people do use silencers with them, not my thing, couldn't even if I wanted too California you know. But they work well with them from very thing I've read and heard about it. It's just a powerful round in a short barrel rifle with a muzzle brake that's designed to lesson felt recoil not help quiet the report. I'm ok with it, just make sure your ears are on.
