    Very nice setup. We need a range/field report.

    Great set up, you will definitely enjoy shooting that rifle. My brothers and I took our AR's to Terlingua out to 500 yards during memorial day. The RRA 2 stage triggers are really great.

    Good looking rifle.
    You should like that scope.I have 2 of them,both with the German #4 reticle.
    The glass is almost as clear and bright as my Sightron SIII scopes.They almost have too much eye relief,but once you get used to that,they're great scopes.Tracking has been great with both also.
    I put one on my Savage 12FLVSS 223,and the other on my RRA 20" Varminter.

    Wow that looks like an awesome rifle. I assume its 5.56/223?
  19. Tex4426

    Tex4426 Well-Known Member

    Yes 223...hopful a 458..22...and a 6.5 in the future but who knows

    Why do folks build up an AR to weigh that much...I mean, isn't the reason to own one just to get a light-weight 5.56 rifle? (I've owned 3.)

    For a semi-auto rifle that weighed that much, aren't there better ones for varmints?

    A custom build and all, I mean. Apples to apples.
