OK, one more of the SBR with the Midwest Industries BUIS set. The front sight is on backward because I like the look - reminds me of the HK sight set.

And we've had a sample of the Walther PS22 red dot floating around for a while so I snagged it to try on the SBR. It produces a great lower 1/3 co-witness with the MI sight set. It seems to be a quality sight with tethered adjustment covers and a precise dot. My boss and I went shooting on Christmas and he had the sight on an 870. We ran half a box of bird shot through it with a 3" turkey load at the end and the red dod didn't flinch. This is as far as I can tell the exact same sight ADCO and Dark Ops sell for various prices, you can get this one for about $75 including the mount.

I've got Friday off so I'm headed to the range to finally shoot the thing.

Took it to the range today - ran 100+ rounds through it. The first 40 or so were in 3-shot groups to sight-in the irons. A quick dial-in of the red dot to co-witness and then a few full mags to make sure it ran OK. This thing holds pretty good groups and I have the red dot dialed-in for the close work (25 yards) with the flip-ups zeroed at 50. I can't believe how freaking fun this thing is to shoot, and I was honestly a bit disappointed the flash and concussion wasn't bad. From everything I had read I was expecting a fireball, but nope! The Levang Linear compensator does a great job of taming the thing. I ran a mag of 60-gr v-max and the thing was laser-accurate with them - one ragged hole at 25-yards without a decent rest - just my range bag to rest the forearm on. I think I'll stock up!

I absolutely could not be happier with the way this project turned out!:mrgreen:

That think would look wicked with a Noveske hider, but theyre a tad longer than, say an A2
I thought about the Noveske hider, but it's much bigger and literally 4 times as expensive as the Levang! The Levang itself is about 1/2 again as long as the A2 hider.

Jeep - The paperwork isn't bad as long as you live in a county where your Sheriff will sign off for you. There are ways to circumvent that, but it helps. It's just a couple forms, a few signatures, a set of fingerprints and about a month of your time - oh, and the tax stamp fee ($200).
