You might be able to pick up a few totally legal 10 round 458 socom pmags

I bought a few 30pmags that are converted to 10 round (makes them California legal) 1 rivet is all it takes to make it legal

Yeah make sure your hammer spring isn't backward, that's the number one cause, and surprisingly easy to mess up.
Message permalink: 709092422725926963
I bought the rifle off armslist. It was a safe queen and the dude installed an aftermarket trigger.
Message permalink: 709092568776048650
I’ll take a look at it.
Message permalink: 709092593316921354
If it's not a backward hammer spring, then it may be a weaker hammer spring to make the trigger pull lighter.

Do you know what brand the trigger is?
Message permalink: 709096435957629041
Also green tip is trash, doesn't fragment due to the steel tip. The article will list barrier blind and non barrier blind loads that are tested and good to go.
Message permalink: 709096686831665233
Green tip is actually awful
Message permalink: 709096857334448128
Idk why people like it so much
Message permalink: 709096883683065948
They like it because the military used it. Unfortunately that's like saying you clean your floor with a toothbrush because someone did it in boot camp.
Message permalink: 709097080525684786
M855 equals good 249 ammo and that’s pretty much it

Isn't green tip better id you wanna go through soft materials and prevent fragmentation
Message permalink: 709097595888336978
Fragmentation is where 5.56 gets its stopping power
Message permalink: 709097748917649418
Slightly better than green tip
Message permalink: 709098004313014402
Yes in those barrels it’s good
Message permalink: 709098075188363296
I’ve seen people suggest running it in their 10.5 and it’s effective up to like 80 yards or something
Message permalink: 709098176321290271
Typically it's best to run heavier stuff because it has more mass to fragment and they're longer, leading to a better ballistic coefficient and longer effective range. Though for home defense the latter part isn't really an issue
Message permalink: 709099058375163958
Honestly for home defense, you may want a non barrier blind load as it'll be less likely to put holes in your neighbor's house

My issue is having a rifle in hand, and a large backpack, so trying to carry the extra rifle
Message permalink: 709100801368260688
Also assume wearing plates and pouches
Message permalink: 709100877520044133
I guess a two point sling with a quick adjuster like the blueforce gear sling. Keep it at the tight setting while slung at your chest, then grab the handle and yank it out when you need to shoulder it
Message permalink: 709100958109401088
I won't need quick access to it, ill look into it, I have a sling coming in that might work for it
Message permalink: 709101133196558388
Some backpacks are made to carry a rifle straight up and down on the side of it, but I don't really do anything where I would have my rifle stowed somewhere I can't quickly access

Could it be the buffer?
Message permalink: 709101950590910487
Huh that's a good budget trigger, shouldn't give you problems. Sometimes it can be a light buffer but it's almost always something else
Message permalink: 709102146783674430
That doesn't look like an ALG hammer spring though
Message permalink: 709102412941492345
ALG hammer springs are either dark gray steel or purple for the reduced power ones
Message permalink: 709102557007446076
It might not be. It was a BCM I bought about 2 months ago for 850.

Aero is kinda like if psa was serviceable. The best bang for your buck, and respected by the community. Apparently thunder ranch even has a class where you build an aero ar and take the class with it.
Message permalink: 709125720634556416
Their M5 series is what people use almost exclusively for ar10 builds these days. You'll see people in competition running aero precision 308 receivers with stupid expensive barrels like compass lake engineering

Does anyone have experience in the AR platform while being cross eye dominant? I’m right handed all the way but left eye dominant. I’ve grown up shooting right handed weapons with my left hand no problem. I got my first AR about 8 years ago but I’ve only ever done the basic target shooting but I would like to take some carbine courses and get my skills up. I’m looking for suggestions on ambi controls and techniques on running right handed ARs as a lefty in a tactical sense. I need to get better all around but particularly in speeding up my manipulation of the weapon and transitioning between targets.
Message permalink: 709163819091493006
I'm right handed and left eye dominant. I just run a red dot or a scope and put the dot/ crosshair on the target with both eyes open and it works fine
Message permalink: 709164477161013310
It really doesn't affect anything, just train through it and make sure your bullets go where you want
Message permalink: 709164922977648709
Right on, I’ve always felt strange/slightly uncomfortable with both eyes open through a scope. I have switched to a red dot recently and I’m getting comfortable with both eyes open left handed. I guess I may need to just work it right handed and get used to it that way
Message permalink: 709165646726037574
I’d rather not run lefty if I can avoid it, although it should help me when going off handed

@Confused how tf do you do that
Message permalink: 709181319644708884
