Build Input

Hi all,

My parts start arriving today! ATI stock, laser, flashlight, rails, halo-scope, bipod, shroud.

Any input on where the laser / light are mounted best? I've seen a bunch of pics, and some in different spots - so is there a reason to or not to for some location? Also, both have pressure switches - any input on where / how to mount them the best? I'm trying to imagine how I might use/hold the new beast and where the pads should be - but many of you are "experts" in the UBG department, so I'll come here first!

Any other inputs also welcome.

Good news, I just realized all the build directions that were captured on the old site are also now GONE! Bummer. I'll take pics and capture my build to post for others.

evening folks....... here's phase 1 done!

Couple of points and such: My ATI fit 98%, had to groove 1 hole on the receiver cover, took about half hour to get fit right. Realized after the gun was assembled I had to put scope rail on before assembling cover..... DOH! Barrel shroud is cool. Bipod is cool. I'll do laser and light tomorrow.

I like the light being switch on versus pad, and I like the laser being pad. I'm not sure how I feel about the pressure switch wires running about, but I can live with it I think. It does look pretty cool!

I need to get a sling, butt pad. I ordered 2 more mags from HP and they should be here in day or so. Can't wait to shoot her!

no bang yet, hope to get lunch at the range today. I'll see if I can get more pics up too if anyone's interested. This WAS FUN to do.
orders.......... here you go guys

www.milsurpstuff.com - this is our own Benny429's site. Got the stock, laser, light, bipod, and rails for a great price, and his service his second to none.

www.midwayusa.com - halo scope - great sale. Looks cool, I haven't shot it yet. Benny has some great scopes on his site too.

the shroud I got from www.moerse.com - a bit expensive but worth every penny once you see / hold it. very responsive to email contact as well.

Had no need to contact midway directly but their responses and shipping were spot on. The other guys were first class back and forth with Q&A.

Really a terrific experience.
Okay boys [and girls], my range report from my first shoot. I know this should go in range reports but it flows form this thread. Here I go.....

1. HOLY CRAP! Is this thing FUN to shoot!

2. Did I say HOLY CRAP yet?

3. Here's some pics. Started on the 25 yard range, shot 5 that were low and left. Made adjustments, shot 5 more. Using the halo scope and the bipod - 5 in the black

4. New target, 25 yards.

5. Move out to 50yds. Shot 5, seemed centered but were high???? I don't get that. Adjusted one click down, then shot 5 more.

6. New target, no adjustments, shot 5 more.

Then I ran out of light. The targets are 1" rings. Using a halo site with not magnification it seems like a pretty decent shoot. Next I want to try loading up all my mags and fast firing with the scope and no bipod.

Man, this is totally fun. I cannot imagine what you guys feels with your AR's and other hardware. Going to put the laser and light on here at some point too. Get a sling on her....... wow.

phew............ so I'm NOT nuts! :lol:
If I am not mistaken, the bullet rises to a certain extent and then drops.

If you zero a 995 carbine in at 25 yds, it will be high at 50, a little lower at 75 and back on target at 100 yds

That is what I have read anyway. :?
Did some more reading - I think you're right. Now, with the objectives for the gun in general, I guess I have to decide where to site it in too? Thinking out loud, got the toys for home defense. Got the 995 for breakout and longer defense, maybe dinner........ so I guess next trip we go after the 50-100 mark. This is gonna be fun - also knowing this now, I know to "aim high" at 25 yards (after adjusting of course).
okay boys and girls......... the transformation is complete. Pimp my ride!!

went through 150 rounds this afternoon too to check all my mags out..... what a blast. All hits, no errors!!!!
