  1. Thanks EdgeCrusher, I think I'm going to go with the ones at Brownell's.
  2. Does anyone on here use canted 45° iron sights? If so, what brand & how do you like them? I'm looking to add canted iron sights to my original ORC upper as backup's to an Aimpoint (of which to purchase I still have yet to decide). Any & all advice and opinionwould be greatly appreciated. Use: 3 gun, target, fun-run&gun.

    I go to CF Phelps quite often. They have a new indoor range in Ashburn called The Silver Eagle Group. I like that one also. Don't care for Clark Brothers at all. Working on getting in down at Quantico...but it's not as easy as one might think. (Friends in "High Places" are working on it) I recently heard about one on rt.28 in Midland, a spot between Catlett and Bealeton. Heard something about 500yard shooting. Haven't looked into it yet though. I would love to find a quiet out of the way spot like that. I have a spot or two where I can bang out to about 800 yds, but I need to reacquire some of my toys. (Due to life changing circumstances, all of my toys were sold. It was best for me, but that's another story for another time.) I was in the desert twice. The first time it was in a place called Ft. Huachuca and the second time it was a sandbox called Iraq. Both were learning experiences to say the least. I see the 98Z5V MOS. In 9 years of service I was a 32DH4 then 26V then (11B for 10 months FTNG) and finally a 29E. First in, Last Out was enough for me. I don't like sand unless I have a fishing pole in my hand and I'm waist deep in clear blue water snook, trout, pompano or redfish fishing. And I go crazy for sheepshead. (Again, stories for another time.) If ever back up this way, look me up. Take care.

    Looking for Enthusiasts in Northern VA.
  5. My favorite rifle caliber is the .308 Win. so naturally a .308 AR was my only AR option. (not to mention you can't hunt deer in VA with .223) I became hooked on .308 the moment I purchased and shot the Savage 10FP in .308 Win.. Sub MOA groups all day long. Worst gun day of my life was the day I sold that rifle. The NEXT greatest gun day will be when I purchase another Savage rifle in .308 Win that shoots sub MOA. This one....from my cold dead fingers!!!
  6. Hello, Having played with the M-16 for 9 years in the U.S.Army, I'm not new to the AR platform. I'm just building an Army of One...then another...and another... I've been look, listening, learning & lurking for a few months (I always try to gather intel before venturing into unfamiliar territory) while deciding on which .308AR to purchase. Once I was told that DPMS now owned Bushmaster and I found the ORC for a smidge over a grand...my mind was made up for me. Having made two suppressor purchases, I began looking for an AR host for my third can. I think the ORC will be a wonderful host.
  7. Thanks RoboCop. I have several ideas in the works. For the .308 caliber, I'm looking at a Savage 10FCP-K or a 10FP-SR and my new Bushmaster ORC. I have yet to decide which suppressor I'm going with, but I intend to float it between both rifles. I'll use it on the Bushmaster ORC "original" upper and which ever Savage I decide to go with. I want this 24" upper with the free floating hand guard for a cleaner/sleeker look. Not to mention the "reach out and touch something" appeal. I want to do my part to stimulate the economy.
  8. Rather than replace the hand guards, I decided to order this. BTW, excellent forum & members. <thumbsup> DPMS LR-308 Flat-Top Upper Assembly 308 Winchester 1 in 10" Twist 24" Bull Barrel Stainless Steel with Free Float Handguard http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/139076/dpms-lr-308-flat-top-upper-assembly-308-winchester-1-in-10-twist-24-bull-barrel-stainless-steel-with-free-float-handguard
  9. Thanks! Because I want to replace the existing hand guard with this one:
  10. Hello, I just purchased my first AR, a Bushmaster ORC and I was wondering if the Bushmaster and DPMS .308 parts are interchangeable. Thanks.
