  1. Unfortunately, the T7 is so new (and has so many T7-specific parts...) that there's very little out there as far as aftermarket support right now...
  2. Fair enough. But the Tavor 7 allows you to switch the rifle to wrong-handed...well...everything. "Wrong-handed," is, of course, well-intended. I, too, am left-handed, but I shoot right-handed.
  3. Are you picking up the offset irons for the T7, also? I'm curious as to how they'll work out -- I've been nervous about running offset sights due to the ejection port being right under my cheek...
  4. It hasn't for me. Granted, the only time I've spent with it was on the range. Hog hunting, however, may shed light on some shortcomings.
  5. Truth be told, the recoil really isn't bad. My biggest issue was the OEM buttplate wanting to slide around on my shoulder. Maybe I wasn't holding it right (I'm not a Tier 1 operator, just an old country boy who learned to shoot with a Mossberg 183...), but the Manticore buttpad sure helped me.
  6. Very nice! I wish mine would have come with the 20-round PMAG like it was supposed to, instead of the 10-rounder. But no big deal -- I've got a handful lying around, and the 10-rounders are nice for shooting .308 ARs off the bench. I've already swapped out the butt plate for the Manticore Arms curved buttpad. Much, much nicer to shoulder, and it stays put. I also sprung for a set of IDF grip panels in black. Feels great! Now if I can just snag an ODG pistol grip, I'll be all set. My middle finger tends to slide up behind the trigger with the cutlass grip module, and it drives me nuts.
  7. "I sold my DPMS [which isn't untrue -- it's down at the gun shop on consignment now...], and Jacoby (my jeweler/gun dealer) had this one laying around. He made me a hell of a deal -- only $200 more than what I got for the DPMS." My greatest fear is that I will die suddenly and unexpectedly and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them.
  8. Never did -- didn't need to. It looks similar enough to one of my 10/22s that, at a glance in the safe, she can't tell the difference. 😉
  9. Nah, I'm gonna enjoy it the way it is. 'Sides, I can't take too much off it without sacrificing the ability to remove the can and use it on other rifles... @RedRiverII I appreciate it! With this thread, I was really just trying to bait @98Z5V into expressing one of his Rube Goldberg-esque plans to convince Mama I needed a T7. At the end of the day, I just bought the d@mn thing. She'll find out or figure it out eventually, and that's just fine by me.
  10. Another quick update... I couldn't get the alignment squared away with the Griffin 30SD on the OEM Tavor brake. So on went a Griffin 30SD Flash Comp, and it's perfect. I took the rifle out to a buddy's house yesterday morning to run some rounds through it and break in my 30SD. She ran like a champ on Federal XM80. Turned the gas block over to "Suppressed," and she ran great, with very little gas in the face. What there was was absolutely tolerable. This thing sounds like a nail gun with the can on! After about 5 rounds with the can, my buddy (who was standing right next to me and has never fired anything suppressed) taps me on the shoulder and says, "Take your ears off! This is the sh­­­*t!" No pics -- I was having too much fun and quickly ran out of time. Had to go get the kids from Nana's house. Back to reality!
  11. I've used the AccuShot monopod with great success. I've always just used the sling stud mount version, but recently purchased a BT13-QK (rail-mount, 4.75"-5.65") for my CSASS rifle. As it turns out, I can't estimate height for sh­­ìt, and what I have is too short for what I need. [EDIT: Waiting for the peanut gallery to chime in here...] If that height range will work for you, I'll make you a deal. I'd rather hook you up than go through the returns process for OpticsPlanet/DVOR at this point. Only test fitted, never fielded. Original packaging is long gone. I don't have a pic of mine handy, but here's a link to the product page. https://www.accu-shot.com/catalog_new/accu-shot-monopods-official-manufacturer/63-bt13-qk-prm-precision-rail-monopod-mid-range-with-qk02-quick-knob.html

    98's 6mm ARC

    I'm kicking around a 6mm ARC upper... I stopped by the local jeweler/gun pusher's place last week (last-minute anniversary shopping...), and he asked me what I'd heard about the 6 ARC. He's a big proponent of the 6 CM, 6 PRC and, well, just about every 6mm wildcat there is. So I got to looking. And dammit... I've been putting together a parts list for this upper (to drop onto the lower my Dissipator is built on, so FA receiver, FA LPK, MBT, LaRue APEG, and ODG A2 buttstock). So far, the only barrel I've found is the "Brownell's Exclusive" Faxon HBAR in 14.5", 16", 18", or 20", and I'm leaning toward the 20" rifle gas. But I suppose the prudent thing to do would be to watch @98Z5V , wait, and see who else cranks out a barrel, maybe in a different profile. Hoping Criterion starts kicking out some Hybrid profile 6 ARC barrels.

  14. I have a pair of Bear safes, both their 7230 (72" H x 30" W x 24" D). They're a local (OKC) outfit, and have pics of their safes (when properly bolted to the floor) withstanding an EF-5 tornado. Having said that, they're pretty proud of what they put out -- I think I paid $2,100ish for each of mine, 8 and 10 years ago. https://www.bearsafes.net/
