PA-10 (first) Shots fired report.


Recommended Posts

So I finally got my mess together and made it to the range and shot my brand new rifle. 

A few years ago, Palmetto State Armory had some issues with this platform. Instead of ignoring their customers, they worked with them. They sent rifles to a few gun reviewers on YouTube, and asked "what is wrong with this rifle". This was a smart move on their part, in my opinion. 

My rifle was produced 2 months ago, so it's their latest run. So here is my results for my first time with it.

Shooting Federal 7.62X51 149 GR FMJ. This is a light bullet but I got it at a good price. I figured it was fine for break in.

Zero failures to feed

Zero failures to eject

Did not chew up my brass.

With every shot I was expecting problems. I was nervous about the Law Tactical folding stock causing buffer issues. I installed my own Geissele trigger, which was a concern, because I'd never done that before. This was my first time shooting this this platform, so today was just about getting used to things. I had no problems whatsoever. The rifle performed flawlessly. As for the accuracy, honestly I was all over 10 moa @ 100 yards, trying to sight in without a spotting scope, so I need to go back and get dialed in better. At least I know my rifle does function. I paid $612 for this rifle. I couldn't be happier. I see older runs having issues, and folks here say to swap gas tube out. I didn't have any problems with mine, so I think if you buy new, from here forward, you shouldn't have a problem. On their website, there is a notify tab on their rifles, so you'll get an email when they have another run for sale. A run usually sells in 2 days. 

So there ya go, that's mah range report. Super stoked about how my rifle shot today. Cant wait to get back to the range.

Tell us about the extractor.

Does it have two counter-wound springs?

Do the feed ramps show any signs of grinding?

Actually, the shells did show 2 scratches. They didn't dent the case, but it did scratch it. I'll be going shooting again soon, and show some pictures. I did look for that. They were just very light.
