Well good news everything went fine today. Only shot maybe 100 rds between the 4 of us that meet up today. The rifle moves around more than I expected since the rig feels sort of heavy to me. This could be due to the ghetto scope set up I'm using plus I probably just need more trigger time. The FN FS2000 didn't leave me with this impression so time will tell. You guys will have to determine if I'm nuts after you test fire her at the spring ShootzenFest.
The rifle is just semi auto so none of that two stage trigger action here. Oh Dave why yes all my children are smart and beautiful thank you for pointing that out.
Lastly I was invited to shoot on private property today which is the reason I didn't post a heads up in the range day thread, otherwise I'd have given ya'll a shout out.
I ran up on David at the range last Saturday...He had the AUG out and limbered up...I had to try it...
I HAVE TO STAY WITH MY FIRST OBSERVISION....iT iS uGLY.
bUT...iT iS ALSO A GREAT SHOOTER....I am very impressedwith the smoothness of the gun. I love the gas system. I also love the ease of field stripping...You push 1 button and the barrel just comes out...And, another button and the whole action falls out the back end of the stock..
Dave had not zeroed in the scope, so, couldn't hit broad side of a barn with it...but...I loved it.
Now...The Bad side...That thing is way awful LOUD....the barrel is way closer to your ear than a regular rifle...and...did I mention ...that thing is LOUD...
Thanks for the kind words Steve. The AUG is growing on me and with the Vortex 1x4 PST scope it made a world of difference. The larger 30mm tube worked great vs the 1" tube scope I tried first.
The problem is the Vortex is dedicated to my 300 Blackout upper so it was just a trial run on the AUG. I'm gonna stick an Aimpoint on top of it the next time out. Hope to have a new Raptor charging handle soon also.
Thanks for letting my son light off a 44 Mag for the first time! He asked me about that pistol on the ride home.
