My 8.3" 300AAC AR-15 SBR with Dead Air Sandman suppressor.
Though I do want to get or build a Suppressed 9mm PCC in the near future.

Dom, is .300 AAC the same as .300 Blackout?

With all the .30 cal cartridges available, what is it you like about .300 Blackout?

Just two wild and crazy guys?

Aykroyd and Martin SNL.

ah, that's the reason I didn't recall - not a fan of sat nite live (have never watched, never will - maybe I'm just cheating myself but I'll never know)




I watched it until all the original cast started to drop off that's when things were no longer funny.
And the crap on there now is to far left wing with the liberal stance. :thumbsdown:

That was back in the days when SNL was actually funny.

I've never liked PCCs for much other than toys. My favorite AR is a 14.5 inch barreled BCM RECCE with an ACOG on it. If that's too long then I'd go with my 11.5 inch barreled BCM sbr with an Aimpoint. However, I normally run it suppressed so it's not much shorter overall than my other ARs. Lol.

I do have a 8.5 300blk sbr with another ACOG, but haven't shot it yet.

My BIL uses his M1 carbine for hog hunting, it does a nice job in the thick brush.

Primarily the fact that it is optimal for a suppressed SBR AR.

My favorite is my SCAR 16S. I have owned a lot of different rifles - but out of all of them, I like my SCAR the best :)

I always thought a "Carbine" meant it was a (usually short rifle) that used a handgun cartridge.  Am I wrong?

No, not Pistol caliber carbine. But, just carbine. Something with a 16 or 18" barrel, in my mind. Semi auto probably - not bolt action.

ARs and semi auto rifles in that size frame basically

16" Rossi 92 in .357 Magnum. This pic is 4 years old. Now I've replaced the rear sight with a rail & put on a cheap red dot.

To All,

Given that my 7615 is being "adopted" by my lady-friend, she said to me last night that:
1. You like things rebored by JES,
2.  You like big-bore rifles,
3.  You've bought more than one rifle with a pitted bore
and
4.  You like Model 760 Remingtons
SO
Buy another 760 in short-action, cut down the barrel & have JES rebore it to whichever caliber that you want.

Now, I'm looking for a short action 760 to cut down to 16-18" & have JES rebore to .358WCF.
(Having a GF that likes guns too is CONVENIENT.)

yours, satx

Sacrilege to have a red dot on such a gun :P

At least it isn't a really nice gun with deep bluing and nice furniture. I never did care for the buckhorn rear sight. The rear weaver rail has a channel to use for sighting. The red dot came on my Neos Carbine kit. I dyed the crappy wood using permanent markers. The red dot works better for my eyes at the distances I shoot this at.

I like the way it looks. :)

I have a friend with a Rossi .357 lever gun, and it shoots well.

I kept holding out for a winchester .357, never could find one at what I considered a reasonable price,
now I find that I'm pretty much done buying rifles (too old)....
shoot pistols much more. - and not looking for anymore of those, either. :)

Tried to love the red dot on my Win 94 44 mag, but found the original sights were much easier for me to acquire.  Went back.
