19 September 2008 - 02:00 PMGreat Buyer. Great Communication. Everything went smoothly. I highly recommend him. A+++, 5/5, etc. etc.
03 September 2008 - 08:32 PMPRVI Partisan and Wolf are the same, for the record. Wolf sells PRVI Partisan as their Gold ammo. It's the same dirty stuff. I wouldn't recommend ever putting Wolf through an AR; it's bad enough putting it through an AK. I won't buy that crap anymore. Sellier & Bellot all the way. At least with S&B the black stuff will eventually quit coming out of your gun.
I have fired well over 500 rounds of Prvi 62gr. in my AR without cleaning. 0 jams and 0 FTE. Its damn accurate for factory ammo, dare I say just as good as the 500 rounds of Lake City XM193 I fired before that. Whether Wolf sells it as their Gold, its still fine quality ammo, my 5 Round 1.5" Groups @ 100 Yards will attest to its accuracy. DO NOT confuse the Steel Cased with the Brass Cased. Different plants, different tolerances ( I believe Steel Cased is Russian, Gold/PRVI is Serbian).
I have fired only Wolf Steel/Military Classic in my WASR-10 with no problems, and with 1 cleaning in over 1k rounds. I dont know what you mean by "black stuff", but if you clean and maintain your gun; use decent mags; that will solve 95% of your ammo problems. I would agree with you, Wolf Steel in an AR should only be used as a last resort/SHTF. Its dirtier than brass, definitely. Brass cased ammo is the way to go. But as long as it puts rounds downrange, in an accurate and safe manner, no ammuntion should be considered bad. Not to mention the steel cased stuff is cheap enough to shoot a bunch without spending your whole paycheck in 4 hours of shooting.
03 September 2008 - 06:37 AMWoah! are you like a mind reader or something?? That's like 75% of what I was thinking!
The Eotech 512 is the exact holo-sight I was thinking of- liked the fact it can run on standard AA batteries. Plus, you can use it in rain, throw it in mud, stomp on it, and it will still hold a zero. (or so I've heard...)
I totally agree about waiting on the optics- really, I have no problem with just the iron sights, but someday when I have a bunch of extra cash, I wanted a HUD-style sight just to make aiming a little easier/quicker, you know?
As far as mags go, I only have the one p-mag cuz I wanted to test it out. So far I like it, and they're cheap, so much as I like metal stuff, I'll probably get a bunch of those.
No, I'm not going to paint it. I like my guns straight black.
As far as ammo goes, right now I have 500 factory remanufactured Black Hills. Got a pretty good deal on it (I think) for about $256 shipped. I'd like to stick to brass casings- I've heard the wolf steel might tear up the internals..... Does anyone happen to know any good places to get decent ammo for cheap? I found one site called "Ammoman" or something, but I don't know how reliable they are.....
If I ever get a rail/foregrip/light combo, I'm for sure going with nothing but a Surefire light. Might be a bit expensive, but from what I've heard, way worth it. Actually, Surefire makes a really cool foregrip/light holder combo that attaches to the rail as a whole unit, that I really like, but when I looked it up, I was totally shocked at the price of the thing. Are they serious?? So it's back to the seperate light and foregrip.
Also, what would be a good brand for a tac rail replacement barrel shroud/forearm? I've heard of one called Lewis Machine and Tool that sounded really nice, although a bit on the pricey side I think....
However, I will say that the light and accessories is probably going to be on the bottom of the list, unless I suddenly feel the urge to go all home defense on it. Sure it's better to have than not, but I live in an area that's pretty calm- not much crime or anything. Besides, I could do a shotgun for home-d, and probably save myself some trouble if I ever had to use it....
On that note, what about a laser? I know a lot of people like them on the pistols, but are they as useful on a rifle?
But anyway, yeah- ammo and mags= priority. The only accessories I really want are the Eotech, and rail/light/foregrip. I want to keep it compact, clean and fast- basically, only "mods that make sense".
As far as ammo goes, I use Ammunitiontogo.com . I've ordered from them probably 3 times in the past few months and they're good to go. 500 Rounds of 62 Gr. FMJ Prvi Partizan cost me ~$205 Delivered. I have used Wolf ammo in my AR, with no problems, just make sure you clean it right after you're done using it, its pretty dirty ammo. For a rail system, what is your price limit? A high end Free Float (Doesn't touch the barrel, gets you better accuracy) will cost you ~$250.
A decent drop in rail system ( TAC RAIL LINK ) will cost you $130 delivered. While you're on that site, get some mags. I've used Aim Surplus a few times and they've got 1 cent shipping on Magpul and Midwest Industries gear. Also, I dont know if your stock had a bit of wobble in it like mine did, but I replaced mine with a Magpul CTR stock, put a Magpul MIAD grip on, and mounted my 3-9x40mm Bushnell scope on the flattop. I can get 1.5" groups at 100 yards with that 62gr ammo. The next thing on my upgrade list is that rail system, but sadly isn't the next thing im buying (Rock Island 1911).
An Eotech is a great sight, just make sure you get the newest Revision (F). Also, if you want something that uses AA batteries, you might want to look at the newest Aimpoint M4 sight. Uses a AA battery and the battery life is over 5 years with their technology. Go to swfa.com for the best pricing on optics.
Also, if you plan on going to a private range, or a 3-Gun Competition sometime down the road, I would highly suggest getting something to carry your mags in ( SKD Chest Rig ). I've got one, its very well made, holds 8 Mags, My Ka-Bar (Why not?), Surefire G2, and 4-8 Pistol Mags, with more MOLLE on the side for anything else you need to carry (Med-Kit For Example)
02 September 2008 - 07:47 PMI have the exact same Stag AR15 as you. Its one hell of a rifle. The one thing I would suggest though, forget all the cool gadgets for now. Buy Mags and Ammo. No need to waste at least $400 on decent optics when you haven't even really gotten to know your weapon. Also, by far the best website on M4/AR15's is ar15.com. Its where I get all my inspiration from.
Also, if you're gonna get it painted (MY OPINION FOLLOWS), I'd do it in a camouflage thats useful. Its not COD4. (/END) After you shoot enough with the irons (500 rounds for me), buy yourself a decent optic. Like an Aimpoint (Any Variation) or an Eotech 512/552. Red-Dots are perfect for a carbine. An ACOG (Min. $800), Decent Rail System ($150), Surefire Light w/Mount for a tac-rail (Min. $75) and a good vert grip ($50) will cost quite a bit. For that much (Ballpark Figs. $1k), get at least 1k rounds of BRASS-cased ammo (Wolf steel will run in your Stag, but break it in with brass), 8 Mags and maybe an Eotech 512. Enough left over to maybe get a tac rail. If you want camo, use Krylon. It will camo it very easily, work well, and if need to remove it, its no problem. I have a Surefire G2 on mine, and its bright as hell. And cheap ($35).
24 August 2008 - 08:28 AMRound size makes it a BR instead of AR? I'm no expert... But I don't really understand. Shouldn't the AkM be considered a BR too then? Is there honestly a difference?
A Battle Rifle uses rounds that would normally be too large to carry in an assault rifle. For example, the G3. Even an AR10 might be considered a battle rifle. FN FAL, M14 and such. Note the common feature here. It fires a larger caliber round. (.308/7.62x51mm). AkM's fire smaller rounds, 7.62x39mm and 5.45x39 for example.
