I had a DPMS 18.5" upper with the SS barrel and just a regular A2 flash hider at the end. I don't have the pleasure of shooting glass so I just thought I'd go old school with Troy flip up sights, I borrow some of my friends Aimpoints from time to time though... I do a lot of 100 yard drills on mil-surp ammo so they're all loaded hot and pretty accurate to boot. Anything within 300 yards is just a matter of eyesight and easy prey haha.
DD quads are expensive, thats almost half an AK for just your rail but sometimes you just gotta have it right?
Gotta send some money my way man, I'm trying to squeeze money together for a S&W Range Officer... I can't compete without a 1911, I could care less for the hyper patriotism that follows the gun or it's service history... I flat out cannot compete in competitive pistol shooting without one... some of these guys can seriously do like 1-1.5MOA at 25 yards.. I'm lucky if I can hit a 6" plate in the same spot twice at 10 with a Springfield XD9.
The cable thing just pays for my expensive thai food habit LOL
Yea the DD's are expensive, but you can feel why when you hold it in your hand. They are the epitome of quality. I love the .308 just for its versatility. You can hot load them and they will rip your shoulder off or you can run them light and suppressed. The only other rounds I have more fun with is the .357/.44 mags, and for much of the same reasons.
Lol I'm waiting for you to get back to me on those cables I was asking about. I'd be happy to throw some your way!
The range officer is a quality 1911 at a great price IMO. I'm not an old school guy, I dont have any ties to the gun itself, but they are wonderful for carry arms. As a somewhat slender guy, they are thin enough for me to easy conceal. The other plus is they are just drop dead sexy. :P
