Finally getting around to breaking in my Parrot. After the mess with using 64 grain synthetic ammo I got some 124 Winchester. For maybe the first 50 rounds I probably had half a dozen FTFs. Easy to deal with by simply reseating the bolt which required very little effort. After about 100 rounds it was flawless. No question the first thing I need to do with my other Parrot and CM is put a couple of hundred rounds through them; it makes a huge difference in how the weapon shoots. I spent some time roughly sighting the Cmore. Note to self put a basic tool set in the range bag. Once I got the Cmore close I could not stop shooting. It was just too much stupid fun. There is a huge difference between my Shadow and the Parrot. The Shadow had no issue with the lighter rounds and the range folks really like plastic bullets much better than metal ones. There is a real difference between shooting the Parrot with the compensator and my CM which I have not installed the compensator on. On another note I understand the importance of a spotter, but am not always able to con someone into spotting for me. With a background as a serious photographer I tend to take my Nikon P900 to the range to substitute for a spotter. With an 83x magnification which is a 2000mm equivalent it is more powerful than most spotting scopes and captures what it sees in 4k. I definitely need to dial in the Cmore a little more. But the Parrot is such stupid fun to shoot I could not be bothered stopping to do that. Still unsure about installing the 10# springs I got from CZ Custom since the ones in the weapon now seem to work fine. The range was empty till I policed all my brass at which point a Glock guy showed up with four other peeps. I had one live round left, I had ejected it during a FTF, and offered to let him try out the Parrot. Always a treat to see a Glock guy after they have shot a CZ for the first time.
