RIA VR80 coming in 2019

Recommended Posts

At the time I was setting this up I was told 6 coils off of a carbine spring. Function is fine, just a bit hard getting the bolt locked back.

Got it in Thursday. Put in a Taccom buffer with the factory spring, mil spec buffer tube, stock and grip. First 15 rounds had issues. After that the next 90 shells were flawless in all mags (19,9,5) Next up is trigger and compensator.

 

any suggestions for heat shield on the rail? I’ve seen Taccom is working on one and others have used paracord wrap.

The charging handle came with a rubber cover thing. I ended up taking it off while shooting it. It was very loosely fit

Whats the giant knob charging handle? where did you get that?

Got a clearer pic?

 

That is just a protective shipping cover - to prevent the sharp handle from punching through the box - toss it in the trash.

Awesome. I’ll be picking up a ergo then. I really like this grip anyways. What type of brake is everyone running? I understand they are not in stock but is there a particular type I need to watch for?

Are you running Ergo flat top or some other Ergo variant (I like Ergo’s but don’t want to return if Ergo suregrip beavertail creates a gap on the VR80).  Thanks much.

I'm trying to be frugal for now, has anybody tried to trim off the extension between the stock and the grip?

Any issues with doing so?

Might have to sand the grip a bit, otherwise it's fine.

Thumbs up to whoever had the Fab defense gl-shock buttstock on their vr80.  I put that on, along with all the taccom stuff (compensator, buffer, spring) and its turned into the softest shooting 12 gauge I've ever fired.

 

I wasn't sure if I'd have enough fun with it to warrant getting that tooth n nail trigger but think I'm gonna budget for one of those now.  Really liking it all put together.

Question concerning the ..  How about reload/handloads?  Anybody try them at all?   

The dummy loads that I made up for myself get shredded up pretty good at the crimp. My friend's Typhoon F12 is more fussy but it's early in his break in stage(needs 1300/1⅛ still). Getting the crimp tucked in by having the right wad/load mix is necessary. I have a range of loads ready to try and expect 1⅛ loads in 2¾" AA hulls with CB1100-12 wads to work. I'll find out how much powder soon. My VR can function on Rem Gun Club 1oz/1185 loads though it won't run Nobel 1oz/1200 loads. Once I determine the minimum power factor 1⅛ load I'll put the Taccom buffer in and see how it runs with that. 

I'll be looking at the sharp edges that are catching the leading edge of the rounds.

that was me that tried the Fab Defense G-Shock , I had one on my Stag10 and I made it very soft.

I also epoxy'd a Tapco recoil Pad to the existing one and it is by far the softest 12ga I ever shot.

Thanks again.  Never heard of those things before.

How much does it let the buffer tube move back in recoil?  Does the movement cause any loss of alignment with the sight and your eye?

I took some videos shooting it and it moved about an 1/2 to 3/4 inch or so during recoil.

Doesn't effect sighting in anyway I noticed, if anything the less recoil made it easier to get back on target after the shot.

 

Cheers

John

Ugh - I purchased a VR80 last Saturday in CA and now I have to wait 10 days (6 more) to pick her up. In the meantime I have purchased two stocks (GL-Shock is one other is a Magpul), Taccom Compensator/recoil buffer, T&N Trigger, Magpul Pistol Grip and a few Magazines (9 rounders).

I BLAME YOU GUYS AND THIS THREAD!

Can't wait to hit the range once I get her and break her in like she did my wallet.

Congrats!

 

Don’t forget to rotate your right side safety 180 degrees.   It will chew your trigger finger knuckle up something terrible.

That was another great tip and I'm glad I did that.  I could already feel it was going to rub and was thinking about removing it but rotating was easier.

 

When I first fired it, I only had some reduced recoil 00 buck and it was single shot for about the first two magazines but whatever happened after that it worked well.  Dumped a few more magazines with no malfunctions.  Guess it needed a little heat and some carbon.
