  1. I'm quite happy with my 510C Elite (green reticle). I've been using it on my rifle for UML limited since last year with no issues. The reticle is daylight-bright, and if I use my astigmatism-correcting contacts, nice and crisp. I like the option of having a circle, dot, or circle/dot. Most of the time I just use the dot, but on farther steel I sometimes like the circle/dot.
  2. This is exactly why I declined to borrow a friend's 2011 when he was out with an injury and offered it to me to use last season. The last time I demoed someone else's gun at a practice session, I ended up buying two Glock 34s!
  3. I know that time is a factor for most people, but if you are able to, maybe volunteer to help the MDs with some stage ideas? I know a few MDs in my area and they would love any help they can get with stage design. Like you said, they might be burned out and just need some creative people to step up and help out. Be the change you want to see in the world!
  4. I'll add another recommendation for the M3K Freedom Series. I got mine from Kentucky Gun Company last year for $550 shipped. It's literally ready to go right out of the box and I used it as such for several matches last year. The only mods I've made for this year are: HiViz TriComp front sight, MOA Lightning Load Lifter, Taran Tactical spring kit, and some strategically placed rubber grip tape. I'd like to add a magazine extension to get it up to 12, but I'm hoping MOA comes out with a +2 end cap for the FS (not super interested in their current $80 kit). I may eventually open up the loading port, but honestly, I can quad load just fine with the stock configuration. Good luck with your choice!
  5. I really like the Ergo Tactical Deluxe grips. I haven't used a LaRue A-PEG so I can't be sure, but from photos it looks like the Ergo is a bit more vertical. I've also used BCM Mod 3 grips and can say that the Ergo Tactical Deluxe is definitely not as vertical. I'm with you - I like a palm-filling grip with a reduced angle. For me, the Ergo is the best I've found so far, but would prefer if it were a bit more vertical. I'd be interested to hear if there are other options.
  6. The Hiperswitch does, in fact, work with Hiperfire triggers. I'm running one with with a 24C on my AR - seems to work well so far. It has a 60deg throw and is ambidextrous.
  7. I use a folding wagon from Costco. I like it better than the stroller option - seems to hold more stuff.
  8. I just picked up a Leupold VX-6 HD with the green FireDot BDC reticle. Haven't had a chance to run it yet, but so far I like what I'm seeing. I know the Razor is considered the benchmark, and while I've looked through one a few times and it's certainly a great scope, it doesn't exactly meet my needs. Since I'm color-blind, I have a really hard time picking-up the red illumination on the Razor. The green FireDot on the other hand is definitely daylight-bright for me and I can see it much more easily. I also like that the Leupold is way lighter (pretty sure it's by far the lightest in it's class). The glass, eyebox, and field of view all seem comparable. I also like that the turrets are 1/4-MOA per click vs 1/2-MOA and it comes with the option of a custom dial (kinda redundant with a BDC reticle, but I don't mind having options). Yes, the turrets are exposed, but they are locking so I don't see that as a big deal. I was able to buy the Leupold up for a good price and it came with really nice scope caps and a throw lever, so with some careful shopping, it think it can be an overall better value.
  9. If it's a Gen 4 or earlier, I would suggest changing the slide lock spring periodically. I install a new one in my Gen 3 guns when I replace the RSA between 3k-5k rounds. It's not a part that breaks terribly often, but when it does, your slide will fly forward onto the ground and you may have trouble removing the broken bit still in the frame. I've mostly heard of this happening in G19s, but it's cheap insurance and they are easy to install. I replace all other springs around 10k rounds.
  10. Could try reinstalling your gas block using this tool to ensure alignment: UNIQUETEK - AR-15 GAS BLOCK ALIGNER
  11. HiViz Tricomp for me too. Using the green triangle pipe on my M3K.
  12. How about some Talon grip material? They sell sheets of 5"X7" and 1"X4" in either rubber or granulate that you can cut to size for your application.
  13. My friend's son was just featured in Hometownlife.com and will have a print version of the article published in his local newspaper. It's nice to see some positive press on junior shooters!
  14. I've been running a pair of Invictus Practical Rack-12Qs this year. So far I'm really happy with them.
  15. It looks like this scope is available with a couple different FireDot reticles. I haven't looked through these, but I do have a couple Mark AR scopes with the FireDot and they are definitely daylight-bright.
