Grendel and Valkyrie is my toughest ammo to find in quantity for decent price. I bought a bunch of the green steel case wolf pre war, was supposedly going to be discontinued but might not of been. SGAmmo is a good source for hard to find calibers, got a deal on brass case grendel last year but it went quick.

I normally run .223 through it for the range for cost, but for the if-shit-hits-the-fan mag, I want some good stuff. Recommendations?

Good luck finding Grendel ammo. I got out of Grendel last year and was offered a pretty penny for my stash of ammo.

Anyways, new gun day. Got a cheap Tisas in. The trigger feels better than my recent Springfield Prodigy.

^^ Nice 1911!

Tisas up'd their 1911 game. They have a good spread of 1911s at reasonable prices.

Anyone used Primary Arms scopes/optics? Looking at a 3x18x50 or a 6x24x50.

I see Primary Arms come up a lot and hear the name in podcasts a bit, but their prices are sometimes too good to seem true.

Primary Arms is good to go. Been around for years and a strong 2A supporter since it's humble opening.

PA branded optics are on par with Holosun offerings. So if you looking for something budget friendly PA optics are worth considering and PA's lifetime warranty on optics is exceptional as well.

Last month I off loaded a formerly braced pistol and acquired a proper rifle; a FN15 Tac3.

I mounted my old Vortex SPARC AR and immediately wanted the Vortex Micro 3X magnifier to pair with it. I thought I was done. Silly me.

The past few weeks I've added a Pew Pew Tactical sling, a Streamlight ProTac XL with remote switch, Surefire offset BUIS, a LINK fore grip and an Elftmann trigger.

Now I'm done.

Maybe.

Looks good, if you want to pull the light closer to your rail I'd recommend the Ariska scout offset mount. I run one on my mock18 and it's great.

Was having issues with light strikes on one of my ARís.

Decided to try out this spring kit and Iím impressed. Especially for the cost. What a difference this made on my mil spec trigger. Lighter pull, cleaner break and no more light strikes. Highly recommend if you have a mil spec trigger.
