    Regular flashlight for weapons light

    Anyone ever do this? Had a extra 30mm scope ring laying around and put my coast 300 lumen light in it, then attached to the side of my ar. Light seems durable enough but we’ll find out when I test it soon as I get to the range. Just curious, did some research but come up dry on any experience...

    US Optics ST-10 TPAL & SWFA SS 5-20

    Been selling all my stuff to upgrade to high end glass. But before I spend $3000.00 on a optic, there's a couple scopes that won't let me click away from them. There is plenty of reviews and videos on the SWFA SS 5-20X50, And I'm sure its a great scope after having one of the fixed 10x. The US...

    Mcmillan A-5 Adjustable Cheek Issue

    Anyone ever have any issues with there Mcmillan adjustment knobs coming loose? Loving the stock, but after tightening then taking a few shots, it will come loose and wobble around. Don't matter how tight I make it, it will come loose after 2 or three shots with my 308 Winchester
