  1. 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.
  2. I use a folding wagon from Costco. I like it better than the stroller option - seems to hold more stuff.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Could try reinstalling your gas block using this tool to ensure alignment: UNIQUETEK - AR-15 GAS BLOCK ALIGNER
  6. HiViz Tricomp for me too. Using the green triangle pipe on my M3K.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. I've been running a pair of Invictus Practical Rack-12Qs this year. So far I'm really happy with them.
  10. 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.
  11. I like the Vickers Tactical mag release. It's long enough, but not so long that you will accidentally actuate it.
  12. Not yet. I'm color blind and in not sure if the red dot for us going to work for me. I just got a Holosun 510c Elite with the green reticle for my AR to use in UML Limited so I'm going to see how that works out and go from there. I appreciate all the advice on this thread.
  13. I haven’t had this problem personally as I don’t do anything to my Glock triggers, but I do know of at least two other people that have had their Glocks eventually go full auto after nothing more than polishing (or so they claim).
  14. I ended up not using the SGA stock because it changed the fit of the gun too much for me. I use the 65mm shim with the factory stock and in that configuration the gun fits me well from a eye-to-bore perspective. When I put the SGA on, it seemed like I would need a 70mm shim, which, of course, doesn't exist. I did love the grip angle and the ability to adjust the length of pull - it just didn't seem to fit me well.
  15. I'm using it, and like the feel, but am still playing with finding the best position for it. I like it at the bottom for precision shots, but I like it a little higher for hosing (slightly less finger travel and snappier feel). Maybe the answer is to get rid of it and be free to position my finger where needed? For those of you that use it, which notch do you run it on?
