    Does it seem reliable?

    I want one, but I've read a ton of horror stories about them, particularly double feeds.

    What you mean to say is it is your first of many to come. Like they say once you go black you never go back.

    It's never given me a single issue. I've shot cheap federal ammo maybe 200 rds. I bought 600 rounds of some israeli stuff and it's blasted through that too.

    I think there were some bad guns produced, but mine seems rock solid. I don't know how many rounds you need to shoot for it to be reliable but I've done 400ish so far

    Cool!

    What kind of accuracy are you getting?

    You are probably sufficiently broken in. Not that I know exactly what that means in terms of functionality of a semi-auto.....I suppose that the parts are worn in, little burrs ground off of bearing surfaces, bits and pieces "settled" although I suppose every time you break a gun down it alters that to some degree. If you haven't had any issues with it, sounds like you're good to go. :wink:

    The top is my 5.56, 18" barrel, needs a flip up rear sight but I had the fixed one on hand.
    Bottom one is 6.8 SPC, barrel is out for parkerize at the moment. Also 18" with a 1.5" muzzle break, I think I want to get a regular flat top receiver for it and put iron sights on it.
    I turned and chambered the 6.8 as well as making the break, my former partner chambered and turned the 5.56 for a customer that backed out so I bought it and put it to use.

    Not mine but I have one just like it, love it.

    Kinda tacticool (?) I did the bobtail job as well as sights and trigger this spring, then I coated the Springfield. I think I'll likely go back to OD green on it though, the coyote brown looks more tan than brown.

    I'll play.

    Mini 14 GB with ATI folding stock. Awesome rifle. I would take this over an AR any day. Not that I have anything against the AR, this is just a more comfortable, solid feeling rifle. I don't care if it is sloppier in the accuracy department. It will hit what I want.

    Very modified 10/22. Don't even ask for the list of mods.

    Love my CZ75b Omega! Not sure if it's Tacticool or not.

    Put a pair of VZ grips on it and it will be.

    Like so...

    Here's a little gizmo I designed and built for PACT to cycle their AR triggers for testing. Just attach a drill motor or other power source to the shaft and it cocks the hammer and pulls the trigger over and over.

    I'm in the market for a Kydex holster for training purposes. Currently using the XD gear paddle holster, but have to take off my light and I'd rather it ride a little higher.

    www.Kydextech.com has a 1-2 week lead time and a good price. Any of you guys have any experience with them?

    Check these guys out. Reversible so you can put it IWB or OWB.

    I hear good things about them.

    yeah, I know about Raven they're twice as much $ and twice the lead time. I met a local guy that does em at the last gun show, but can't find his info anymore.

    I want a pistol holster, double mag pouch, and an AR mag pouch.

    Wow, I didn't think their lead would be that long.

    Have you considered making your own?
