    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Assembled a Del Ton AR 15, had them put the Peace Corps logo on it

    I went by Skeletor's suggestion and got an AR 15 kit from Del Ton. I had a friend come to my house and help me build it, since I'd never done anything like that before. It took us a few hours, since we had to build the lower reciever from individual components.

    Del Ton will put a free laser etching on the stripped lower so I had them put a Peace Corps logo on it.

    I had bought some M16A1 surplus parts, and mounted the triangular had guard, and the A1 pistol grip, on the rest of the rifle. So it has a bit of a retro look to it.

    This forum has changed me; I think your use of the logo is amusing, rather than hating it with the fire of one thousand suns.

    now put 500 rounds thru it and just use slip 2000 ewl. no cleaning tell us how it functions. P.S. make sure the BCG is staked.

    Oh! Lets start a flame war over the overblown "gas key staking" issue!! :ingun:

    ;)

    P.S. I'm not saying that staking isn't important, but I think the "yours isn't good enough" games I see all over the gun forums are just ridiculous.

    Uh, I already have a mini 14 and an AK 47. I guess I'll be sure to use them on the day of massive zombie invasion?

    actually if your BCG is properly staked and you use Slip2000 EWL the gun should fire all 500 rounds with out a problem if you have good magazines.

    And again after you shot the 500 rounds tell us how you like it.

    were did i say any thing about not good enough? I just make sure the Bolt carrier group was staked. Check out SWAT the gun rag they featured an AR that had 32000+ rounds down it and only basic extractor and spring replacement and similar done to it. all they did was add SLIP 2000 EWL and wipe down the BCG .

    Lord Skeletor approves of this message and this logo on a gun. That is all!

    A couple weeks ago I met a friend at an outdoor range and he helped me zero the rifle at 100 yards. It was the first time that I fired prone out to that kind of distance, since most of my competitive shooting that I do is with pistols. I initially had a hard time maximizing my accuracy as I had to learn how to shoot prone and maximize stability of the firearm. My groupings got tighter the more I tried, although my grouping with this AR was a lot tighter than I ever got with my mini 14. I experimented with different ammunitions, including Remington .223, Wolf, Armscor USA, some green tip my friend had, and a few match grade cartriddges.

    We ended up adjusting the sights on both rifles a little bit, but I'm sure that I still have a lot of practice to do before I can say that I really did a good job of zeroing the rifles.
