ZNA I live in the Joplin area,so you and I are neighbours...sort of :D

I read if it is .22 cal center fire or bigger it is legal

The 223 / 5.56 is a great round for my area .With the right loads it will knock down a deer with no trouble...and I have talked to a few people that has used them for hog hunting.

Nice rifle.

Be careful. You're on the edge of the slippery slope of Black Rifle Disease.

I know. I've built three and am saving up to build another upper.

Taxi ..I know the feeling already...for me it is just as bad as ham radio ;)

The scope is the Nikon 3 to 9 power with the 223 bullet drop cross hair....still ironing out the scope,got it pretty close at 50 yards before it got to cold to be at the range,going to the 100 yard benches next trip,waiting on better weather before I go back

I've got Nikon camera's lenses and a couple of Nikon riflescopes. Their glass is pretty good.
We await your range report.

Shameless pic of AR#4. Setup for hiking around.

A Nikon P-223 with BDC? The scope in the pic from the first post looks identical to a Nikko Stirling Nighteater scope to me.. Look at the scope objective shape. Nikons don't have that 'visor', and they're considerably smaller. You sure it's not a Nikko?

I hate work sometimes.... :censored:

really cuts into my radio and other play time I happen to get....

Back to the scope issue....

I bought the scope at an estate sale/auction a while back.It was in a Nikon box,and it does have the Nikon style BDC cross hair ....not the mil dots .

I took a look at another Nikon BDC scope and a Bushnell BDC scope at a local gun shop to compare cross hair types and it is the NikonBDC for sure.

What throws me ( now that I am looking into it more ) is the scope has no markings of any kind to tell me what brand it is. I was in Academy Sports the other day and found a Centerpoint scope that looks just like what I have but it has the mil dot cross hair .... now I am wondering just what brand of scope I do have....

But I will say that my recent trip to the range was fun,and did get to do a nice break in and scope set up, and the scope did hold set through 100 rounds

At 50 yards grouped about 1.5 inches and at 100 yards about 2.5 inch .Not to bad over all with the factory trigger group ( hate the mil spec trigger ..to heavy and draggy)....the after market trigger group I have my eye on should help close the grouping up a bit more

I clean up my own AR triggers. Takes 15 minutes or so. Makes a huge difference from a ordinary stock trigger. All you need is a fine whetstone and some JB's Bore paste or jewelers rouge. I leave the springs alone. It feels like a lighter trigger but it actually a lot smoother because of the polishing.

I bought a couple of Jard triggers on closeout from CDNN. Both are non-adjustable rated at 3.5 pounds. Cost was $50 apiece.
They're pretty good. Very little creep and overtravel.
