That's what I was thinking on the 10's. I may get some 20's / 30's just to have in case baker's zombies show up, but plan on using 10's.


Thanks guys. Parts will start showing up this week. My FFL failed to send their info for the lower to ship, so it's a week behind. All I have left to order are mags and optic.

Vortex strike fire works great without breaking the bank. I mean they are no eotechs but they are a quilty optic.

I haven't made up my mind on an optic, but I need to hurry.

If she likes to shoot she will enjoy shooting that gun. I've got a 10 year old sister that can blow through a mag.

Primary Arms Micro Dot. It's about $100, but you won't be disappointed, look at reviews on it.

Also Lancer mags are awesome! They have a metal feed lip, and are fully transparent, unlike the Pmag which has just a window.

I know they arn't exactly "toy" cheap... But these ( http://www.airsplat.com/items/ER-E1-M4- ... MgodxGAAIg ) are a great way to get children involved. We (my buddies and myself) even have a "shooting range" consisting of a large gaylord box, carpet and whatever targets you wanna shoot at (the airsoft pellets get everywhere without the box containment unit), weather it be plastic cups or paper targets. All set up in a friends garage. The kids love it, it can be easily taken down and you get some trigger time with the kids. We even have little compititions. Timed events (take out the plastic cups or some such rules) accuracy events. Two gun, used with an airsoft pistol ( http://www.airsplat.com/Items/GP-PS-1911-CO2.htm ), etc.

Just don't buy the cheap ones... ain't worth the hassle...

I had a Vortex StikeFire on mine originally, it was a nice optic but I wanted something more for shooting and hunting with it, so I sold it and bought the Nikon P223 3x9. Much happier with the hunting caliber scope vs. the red dot style. And I also got it from Cabelas for $200

You can find tons of reviews on these things. They are very close to the real deal, aside from some obvious differences...

This was my first one so I wasn't sure. With my 20in barrel I am grouping out to 250 yards so no complaints. I dont hunt with mine but if I were to use it for hunting I think I would upgrade to a full scope and not just a red dot.

Why 2 SCARs that are exactly the same? Really wish I could figure out a way to justify a SCAR.

The next size gas block is like .936 if memory serves me. No where near fitting?

I didn't think I should have to hammer it on, scratching the crap out of the barrel in the process. it is close. there is a slight profile change and it stops a few inches shy of it's mark.

No I have never hammered one. Usually slide pretty nice. Is the finish inside the block holding it up? Could a little sanding fix it?
