....this is closer to the truth than any other speculation I have seen so far...
Ok so this finally came in. Got held up with USPS for like week somewhere, but it arrived.
This is the now discontinued Crosman MAR177. Lother Walther match barrel in .177. It’s PCP to 3000psi. My understanding is I should get about 150 rounds off a full
I wanted the A2 iron sights to match my national match rifle so I’m going to have to eventually get those on here
The PCP upper mates to any milspec lower which in this case is an aero prossision billet lower with a milazio Krieger national match 2 stage trigger at 4.5lbs
My hope is that at night I can carve out 15minutes to practice some offhand shooting at 10m in my garage
Bunch of stuff I had laying around the Stick compound.
Rainier Arms billet lower
CMT billet upper
Centurion Arms CMR rail
BCM stock and grip
Rainier Arms BCG
Reject barrel that was returned to Rainier Arms because it wasn't accurate enough. It shoots under 1" groups for me at 100 yards. I've turned in .6" 5 groups with it.
Wilson Combat TTU trigger.
Radian Raptor Charging Handle and selectors
The optic is a Trijicon RMR. While I wanted to use a scope on this, the balance is so good that a scope ruined the feel so I went with the RMR. I'll never hit the accuracy potential with using the RMR, but I don't care. When I'm out in the mountains I only need to look out for tweakers and rabid foaming at the mouth beasts or zombies. The RMR will work well enough, and it isn't like this is a primary use carbine anyway.
That's ******* awesome!
Damn, your spare parts are better than my "high end" build lol.
What's the best "budget" trigger you'd suggest? I know Geissele has the G2S around $165 which would be right at the top of any budget I could afford. But being significantly cheaper than the rest of the Geissele line-up, is there a compromise made that would steer you away from that trigger? I guess what I'm asking is, would the top tier of another brand (ALG, Ruger Elite, CMC's single stage, etc.) be better than the bottom rung Geissele? Or does Geissele pedigree outshine the other brand regardless?
I'm also not sure if I want a 2-stage or stick with single. I'm currently using just basic Milspec triggers in both of my AR's with a light polish job and JT springs. For the price, they're acceptable, but there's a lot of want left over. I really LOVE the Apex triggers in my M&Ps as they kind of work like a 2-stage and I've found that I prefer that type of handgun trigger over something like a 1911 crisp single. So maybe going 2-stage in my "precision" AR is worth it?
I see you're also a fan of the Surefire ProComp!
I am! It's a great muzzle brake, not too expensive and scored pretty high marks in the in depth "shootout" review I read a couple years ago:
Only comes in magnum size
I am pretty well taken care of by the manufacturers in the weapon community, especially the AR15 world.
Geissele is pretty tough to beat. The CMC triggers are very nice, but if you are looking for a two stage trigger there are two that come to mind. First, is the Geissele, second is the Wilson Combat TTU (in the two stage version).
When the Wilson Combat TTU first came out, I did some testing for Army Times and dropped the hammer 10,000 times to see if the TTU would slip, glitch, fail, or end up with a different feel. I've had other two stage triggers go bad in less than a full mag. The Wilson Combat TTU had zero issues, it really is great.
With the above out of the way, I am a fan of a very clean, slightly heavy trigger. I don't mean that I like a 12lb pull, but I'm not looking for a 2.5lb pull like a lot of guys seem to want. A 5 or 6lb, or possibly a tad more is fine for me if it is a clean trigger. When it comes to my duty weapon, I use a Geissele SSA trigger and it has done everything I want. I have zero complaints.
When it comes to the Geissele triggers, if the G2S reads like it is something that fills your needs, I would get it without concern.
Picked this up at the local pawn shop. payed 200, did I get a good deal?
Are you a dog???
Looks to me like the cats are in trouble now ! Go ahead climb a tree , see what happens ...
Let's see, a camo'd Daisy Red Ryder with red dot and light, that your dog took a picture of? Priceless!
