    PSA and fast shipping don't go together.

    My order from Poor Man's Black Rifle arrived today, while I was at work. Postmark says it was mailed on the 9th. I placed my order on the evening of the 8th. That's fast shipping. I cheeped out on the faster shipping option.

    I really like this slick side lower. I need a dust cover. I've got one at work.

    The finish on the gas block leaves something to be desired, but the machining all appears to be good.

    The finish on the hand-guard and receiver are great. Not an exact match in shade, but very close. Machining matches, and looks good on both.



    My order from PSA is still pending. . .

    My order from PSA shipped today, the 15th. Still not at a UPS facility.

    One of the four items from PMBR was a mid length gas tube.

    The most reliable way to determine the gas tube length required, is to order and install the wrong length.

    I ordered a rifle length gas tube at work today. I also installed a dust cover, pin and spring. No clip required. A bit of a PIA to install it from the wrong side.

    Shortly I'll start posting pictures.

    I'm thinking that a budget 1-4X illuminated, First Focal Plane scope might be the best. Perhaps a 1-6 power. It'd need generous eye relief. 4-4.5".

    I was looking at optics at Academy today. I need one maybe 2, need more to look at to make a decision.

    I slapped a Rock River Linear Brake on the barrel for now.

    I still need to order a BCG/Charging handle.

    I spent $127 on the Nikon 3X fixed power scope. It's got a BDC calibrated for M885. It will be here Monday.

    Yea, . . , I don't even pretend to be knowledgeable about scopes and optics. I rely on brand name reputation, and reviews. Then I look at my budget.

    In this case, Nikon's Lifetime No Fault Warranty appealed to me. You break it, they fix or replace it. Service can be slow though, according to what I've read.

    OK. Scope is mounted and this thing weighs 8.6 lbs.

    Almost all of that is barrel. This is why I got the barrel to begin with.

    Wow, I don't like heavy rifles.

    LMAO! This guy cracks me up. Only thing that will keep you from shooting is lack of time or ammo..

    My house this week..



    The PSA premium BCG’s go on sale for 59.99 regularly. I usually buy a few then.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———
