Ok, so finally I got to shoot it today. I put a couple hundred rounds of some real smelly Remington UMC 55gr Walmart ammo through it (real strong ammonia smell) with zero failures and other than the crappy trigger it shot real well (I say the trigger was crappy because I got spoiled by a JP trigger on my last AR ... its just got your typical milspec type trigger). Next "must do" upgrade is the trigger, either another JP or one of those cool Timney drop ins By the way, all I did is wipe down the outside of the rifle, I didn't clean it before shooting, nor did I lube it (I kinda wanted a "worse case" testing of the rifle). Its pretty dirty now Here's a pic. Note that it did NOT come with the Magpul MIAD grip, winter trigger guard or ATN Digital red dot. On a side note, I'd never want to have to butt stroke someone with a CAR stock ... they're a bit too fragile (the stock was damaged in shipping. I haven't talked to the folk at CMMG about it, but plan on replacing it with a Magpul, so I don't think its worth the hassle) [click here to see the damage] The target is the first full magazine after I got the red dot sighted in ... I was stuck on the 25yd range today so I don't know if I'd be able to do as well on the 100yd range (especially with the stock trigger). The red circle is 2.5". I feel I got my money's worth, thats for sure.
