    My New PSA M4

    After lots of research and great advice from this site, I finally bit the bullet and bought my first AR. Carried these for years in the military, never really wanted one until now. I decided on the Palmetto State Armory M4. Seemed to be the best value for the money and left me some cash to add an optic, magnifier and some furniture. Purchased from Classic Arms for $749.99 shipped plus FFL transfer. They shipped within three days and provided outstanding service. Here it is after I added some OD Green Magpul furniture and Aimpoint Pro and Primary Arms 6x magnifier.

    Here is the first three rounds out of the box at the FFL's indoor range before adding the Aimpoint Pro and magnifier with Magpul Flip Up BUIS. Very accurate rifle.

    After adding the Aimpoint Pro and Primary Arms 6X magnifier and zeroing at 50 yards.

    My son is learning to shoot as best as I can teach him. At 12 he is showing himself to be a good marksman here is his target at 100 yards using only the iron sights

    and this is at 50 after the Aimpoint Pro was zeroed. He emptied the whole 30 round mag and started spraying them a little at the end, glad its not full auto or he would keep me in the poor house on ammo costs!

    Congrats on the new PSA AR. I have one and I love mine. Mine came with the AimPoint PRO as a package deal. I know that you and your son will continue to enjoy the new rifle. You might as well go ahead and buy the boy one now or you won't have yours for long.

    Congrats! Im jelous, I was ganna put the same one on layaway yesterday but my pay check was short. Oh well. How do you feel about the MOE handguard? I cant afford a fancy metal one but dont like the stock M4 handguard, the MOE looks nice.

    Ionracas,
    I really like them. They feel better than the stock guards. Almost went with a long rail system, but didn't want to spend the cash or hassle with taking off the fsp and installing a gas block. Figured I would save the money for now. Magpul makes some great tough stuff. Primary arms has the best prices and fastest delivery, free shipping too.

    No need to remove, just cut and grind. Lots of info out there on how to do it neat. M4carbine.net for starters. Jonconsiglio could also probably walk you through it.

    Those 100 yard iron site shots from your son are right on. I know some people in my unit that cant even get groupings like that. Good for you for taking your son out man. Thats the way it should be.
