Would like to be able to shoot accurately in the 100-300 yard rang with the scope.I'll use the flip up iron sights for under 100 yards. Maybe under $250 or so,maybe a little higher. Also want to get a front grip and or bipod,unless there is 1 unit that can be used for both.
If you want to shoot "longer " ranges , do not skimp on optics . I will not put anything less than Leupold scopes on my guns . They are not the cheapest scopes out there , but they can take a beating , optics are bright , retain zero , and when you adjust for windage & elevation they move consistently and accurately . I hav them on my Thompson Center Contender Hand Cannon in 358JDJ , T/C Encore 22-250 & muzzle loader , and Savage 110BA 300win mag.

This is what a good scope will help achieve. This is 2 shots at 100yds from my TC Contender pistol and yes they are in the same hole !

I'll be looking into them as well, thanks.

Anyone know anything about Live Free Armory in West Melbourne Florida? They are making new custom Glock 17 slides and 9mm conversion barrels for G22's. I have been considering a slide and barrel for a G22 police trade I picked up to customize. Curious what the quality is from them.

I have been considering one of their AR's too. I don't see how you could build it cheaper for the quality and customization they afford? I bought a S&W sport 2 over a year ago which I still haven't fired but would like to build a custom AR cant be any more difficult than a Buick V6 lol!

Guns are a hobby of mine. I have been an avid collector/builder for a while now. Here is one my my builds. This one was for me. I build a lot for buddies that have no idea wtf they are doing, just know what they want, and how much they want to spend.

Billet receivers, Nor-Guard coated. Nickel Boron bcg, 3.5lb trigger. A few Ti parts including the brake.
1 in 8 twist, .223 Wylde chamber.

Still pretty naked in this pic. Added a 1-4x32 scope, and Diamondhead flip-ups.

Just one of my builds. Also have more than a few pistols, including 1911's. Most recent is a .22 TCM. Damn, that thing is accurate, and lets out a very impressive fireball. Over 2000 fps in a 5" barreled pistol.

Anyone else have any interesting builds?
Very Nice. Did you go with the 223 chamber for accuracy? I have read it is slightly tighter than the 556 chamber.

I am looking at a new to me/used rifle. Since it is an old used rifle, I am curious as to what to look for that could reveal signs of trouble or extraordinary use. I have heard about the trigger pin hole in the lower being a wear point?
So no build, yet, but you sound like you know your way around and have more experience than I do so maybe you can give me some pointers on looking over an old rifle.
