  1. In the photo, you can see the screw to the left of the pivot pin in the sight. The plastic cap to protect the thin front sight post from getting bent while in the bag of taking the carbine out of the bag. Hurley
  2. I drill an tap a hole through the side plate of the base into the top part, then screw in a 6-32 screw to lock the sight into the up position. It is pretty tight as it comes, but with the screw, it is locked together as a solid piece. If you ever want to fold it down, just remove the screw and it works like they intended. Hurley
  3. I have not used one. I thought about one for my last build, but decided against it because it doesn't use standard AR15 sight posts. For a few dollars more, you can get a JP front sight. It clamps on basically the same way and uses standard AR15 sight posts. Check it out. I have also used Yankee Hill Machine folding front sight gas blocks. I modify them to lock the front sight in the up position. They also use standard AR15 front sight posts. Hurley

    308 Pmags

    Mine are gen 3, they slide on easy, but the spring is bound into the pocket on the inside of the base pad and won't let it slide off. Won't be a problem until the mag gets dirty. Hurley
  5. I have some 308 Pmags and picked up a couple of Taran tactical base pads. They are machined differently from the 223 Pmag base pads and don'come back off like the 223 ones do. Is there a specific trick to taking the base pad off of a 308 Pmag so that the mag can be cleaned? I searched, but didn't see where it had been addressed before. Hurley
  6. Since the muzzle device will be pinned, you may want to select one of BCM's Mod 0 compensators. It is more effective than it looks like it would be and still offers some flash suppression. The setup that you posted should work fine. Hurley
  7. Another Ft Benning match is done! I had an awesome time shooting with squad 9. It was good to catch up with old friends and make new aquaintances. I would like to thank the USAMU for hosting the match. As always, the AMU personnel running the stages were very efficient and professional. Thank you to the lieutenants that were resetting on every stage also. Thanks to the MWR for having the match and a big thank you to Ft Benning Command for allowing the match to be held and open to civilians! I really enjoyed the Special Forces trailer and the Bradley display. No one could have picked a better ambassador for the Army and Cavalry than Staff Seargent Crawford to showcase the Bradley! He is very knowledgable and is good at explaining things. He really seems to like the Bradley. I enjoyed seeing and shooting the M320 grenade launcher on stage 9. The stages were challenging and I liked the options of engaging paper with pistol or rifle, but they were stages that one would see at any normal bay match in the world. They lacked the "Ft Benning" traditions. By that, I mean that I have come to expect Military themed stages at Ft Benning. I expect to see swinging bridges, barbed wire fault lines, shooting out of a boat, hanging on to a rope on a wall, shooting/crawling through tunnels, getting out of a parachute harness, breaching a door, a shoot house, a blind stage, starting in the back of a Bradley, MRAP, bus or some other vehicle, shooting small plates inside of bunkers, etc. I used to enjoy when each stage was themed after a Medal of Honor recipient and the citation was read to each squad or when the stages were theater or conflict themed. This was my seventh Ft Benning match and I will definately be back next year, provided the match is held and God willing. Hurley Rider
  8. JP has 10% off of components and free shipping through Monday. Use code BF2018. Hurley
  9. You should absolutely go to the big matches! You will meet some of the nicest people that you have ever met. Shooting major matches is a ton of fun and great experience. Be safe and have fun. Hurley
  10. Follow the guidelines about base access and speed limits, make sure that your vehicle insurance card and tag are up to date (at my first Ft. Benning match, the guy I was riding with didn't have the current tag receipt, but had the correct year tag on his truck, they almost didn't let us have a vehicle pass) . Read the match rules. Approach the shooting as you would at any other match. Enjoy the match and have fun! Hurley
  11. A photo of the front sight on the JP. Hurley
  12. The Middle rifle in the first photo is a JP CTR-02 18" light contour with a Yankee Hill Machine front sight. The bottom rifle is an Armalite AR10 20", JP 15.5" handguard and Armalite front sight. Second photo is of an AR10, 20" with JP handguard and Yankee Hill Machine front sight. If you zoom in, you can see the screw that I installed on the YHM front sights just below where the folding post meets the base. Hurley
  13. I will see if I can post a few pictures. Hurley
  14. I use Yankee Hill Machine front sight gas blocks for my iron sight guns. It is a folding front sight, but I drill and tap a hole through the side and use a screw to lock it into the up position. They are sturdy as they come, the screw just adds an extra measure of confidence that it isn't going to move. It also uses standard A2 front sight posts. I position the YHM sight right behind the comp and use 15.5" hand guards on my rifles. I have three with 20" barrels (my preference) and one 18". The 18 is a JP CTR-02 light contour. It works well and is an 18 only because John doesn't like building 20" light contour barrels Hurley
