What is it with these bathroom rifles?
Is it the lighting, or prying eyes?

I took it out and shot it stock with the irons and couldn't be happier. The rifle is a nail driver. I was shooting steel at 500 yards with no effort. Now that the red dot is on I need to take it out this weekend and sight it in. Super excited and worth every penny.

Ill give you 3 excuses then the real answer. I really don't have any better light in my house. Two of the pics are in the kitchen actually. Another reason is I don't want to walk around with it in my front yard cause i have crazy neighbors and lastly I have huskies and its literally a hair explosion everywhere I go in my house so i wont set it down anywhere .....The real reason... I'm just lazy and was trying to take some quick pictures.

Thanks from hammonje

Glad to hear a good report on a rifle without excuses or complaining, refreshing. Thanks and congrats on your new favorite rifle. I don't even really shoot my AR or bolt guns anymore except hunting, and a lot of the time a hunt my m1a. I have an aimpoint but never tried it on this platform, a lot have and seem to like.

PS take your pics wherever you want, and dog hair want hurt it.lol I have a labish rescue mutt and a jack russell everything I have has blonde or white hair on it.

Thanks from sstephen88

Haha all my rifles and cases have hair everywhere as well. Yes the rifle performed just as expected. I was so excited to finally get one and take it out. I use my AR's for coyote hunting but am taking this one out for the piggies so i can give them a dirt nap in one shot. I recommend the the m14.ca mounts. I put the casm gen 2 on because i ultimately want to put some nice glass on it but love the red dot quick hunting. If you want to just throw on a red dot then m14.ca makes the casm RD which is a super short mount that just fits right into the rear sight pocket. The casm gen 2 looks a little funny with only a red dot on it so the shorter one would be a lot better but mine still looks and functions great. The only negative i had was i bought some Chinese made mags and the tabs on top aren't bent over enough so the rounds wont hold in the mag. while i was shooting one round would chamber and the round or two right after it would eject some times resulting in a jam. ill stick to the nicer american made ones lol. Not the rifles fault though.
