Range Report: DPMS LRT-SASS (lots of pics, dial-up beware)
Overall Impressions: I'm still drooling on myself. :danceban:
I was finally able this weekend to get out and shoot this rifle with glass on it. Right now my setup is: DPMS LRT-SASS, La Rue Tactical Mount (the one for AR10's), and the SWFA Super Sniper fixed 10x scope.
Right now my only gripe is that the scope is a little further back than I'd like. I may have to take the flip-up sights off to get it where I want because the La Rue mount doesn't seem to want to lock over the ring that holds the handguards on. Still, it was very comfortable to shoot and the mount/scope are both amazing products that I would recommend.
That's what it all looks like and all shooting was done at 100 yards off the bipod only. Ammo used was Prvi Partisan 147gr .308 ammo.
In the break-in of the barrel I've had 2 stovepipes. Everything else has fed well. Probably around 65 rounds through the rifle at this point and both of the stovepipes were early on (last 40 rounds or so flawless). The rifle is very tight, so I'm attributing it to the break-in process. It's still a struggle to get it apart to clean it, although it's getting easier.
Accuracy is very good. I shot my first sub-MOA group yesterday and I'm still walking around with smiles about it. This 3-shot group measured .410" at 100 yards. It's currently hanging in my office at home. :) And yes, the black stickers were on there before. :gah:
So, for shooting fairly cheap Croatian ammo, I'm pretty freaking happy with that group. I can't wait to see how she does once I start handloading for it.
Cons: The plastic case that the rifle comes with is somewhat flimsy and doesn't have enough room for the rifle with a scope mounted. That's pretty annoying and for how much the system costs I would think they'd catch something like that.
I cut myself on the flash suppressor/compensator on the barrel.
It weighs a good amount with a scope, mount, and a full mag.
That's literally all I can think of.
PROs: Accurate. High capacity Mags. Very low recoil. Handles well. Shoots well. Bipod is solid. Makes other gun owners jealous. Super Evil Black rifle.
So, in summary, I would recommend you buy this if you have the pennies and want one. I couldn't be happier with mine!
