  1. Same here ... exactly the same. Only because I've caught her in the act of it and told her to make a note of where she put something so I'll know where to look for it. Locked her right up too
  2. That looks damn nice. Good job again. Thanks for sharing it all with us.
  3. Yes indeed I do appreciate this contribution.
  4. Nice gun
  5. A .308 Dissy is my next project. Been planning it for a while.
  6. Nice gun there. I like the use of A1 and A2 stocks as I think they look better. I built the one above as a copy of an actual special order Colt once done for a LEO agency that used the collapsable stock. Go ahead and finish your's out. Easier to ask for forgiveness than it is for permission. Yes indeed the LR-308 Dissy is going to be a bit more expensive but that is to be expected with the .308
  7. Thanks gents for the feedback. Hopefully I'll have an initial range report by the end of the week. This one is sort of a warm-up for the .308 version I hope to have done by the end of this year.
  8. Thank you. I wish I had known about the rare original Colt version before they sold out. Found out about them about 4 days too late.
  9. Thank you. Hopefully I'll get a good range day by Friday.
  10. Welcome from Gulf Coast Texas
  11. A2 Dissipator I just finished based on the Colt A2 Dissipator sold by CDNN a few years back. Too bad I missed out on that purchase. Upper Assembly:The barrel is a new Double Star med. weight Dissipator chrome-lined barrel with 1-9" twist on a contract (non-marked) new A2 upper. This is a mock dissy that uses a carbine length gas tube. I used a titanium low profile gas block at the gas port and a clamp-on non F-marked A2 front sight offered by Fulton Armory as the faux front sight. I cut a section of a pistol length gas tube to use in the faux gas block that runs in to the hand guard a couple of inches to stabilize it. I'm currently using an extended A2 front sight post pending 100 yard sight-in. I used a gas block quick disconnect sling adapter sold by GGG in Tucson. I simply need to attach the proper piece on the stock. Currently I have an original 3-prong flash hider on this but it will be changed to an original-type A2 piece. The bolt catch is an enhanced Seekins unit.Lower Assembly:Colt Sporting Rifle lower with a Fostech Echo trigger. This will be the first time I try one of these triggers and I'm looking forward to the first range day with it this week. The buffer tube is a new Colt 4 position piece with a Spikes Tactical carbine spring and T-2 buffer. The lower parts kit is a standard LPK from Spikes Tactical also.Although the original Colt piece used black furniture I used the standard furniture in green that I had as spares to finish this off. Hopefully this will be a great go-to carbine to carry around in the truck. The longer sight distance will be much easier on my older eyes.
  12. +1 ^^^^^^^ on the Condor / Voodoo / Draco cases, especially those that come with the removable mag pouches.
  13. Nothing wrong with it the way it is IMHO
  14. More of the same from the Witch: http://sonsoflibertymedia.com/34-year-old-journalist-investigating-hillary-clinton-found-dead-months-later-still-no-autopsy-report/
  15. So if I understand you right this scope is mostly for the upper echelon slower precision shooting than anything else (so far), right? I guess that makes sense. More for controlled precision intended at a slower rate of fire. Try it slow both with and without a suppressor next and see what happens.
