    Hopefully the carbine will shoot more accurately with this. I'm only getting 1 inch at 50 yards with bulk ammo. When I put the new stock on, it brought my group down from 2" to 1".

    Let us know how it shoots. I've always had a soft spot for pistol caliber carbines, even the Hi Points. :o

    I shot it on Saturday.

    At 15 yards, I was shooting 2" unsupported standing. I was shooting 2-3" with my CZ 75B.

    At 25, unsupported, fist sized groups.

    At 50, on a bench, about 4 inch.

    It's fun to shoot and has light recoil but the original stock felt even lighter IIRC since it had some flex to it. The new ATI is solid plastic and they have a rubber end but i'm not putting anymore money towards it.

    It's his backup backup sight for when his iron sights get shot off by the enemy.

    Got off of work early and stopped by the range to sight everything in. I'm zeroing the rifle for 100 yards so it'll be 1.5" low at 25yd. This is the max distance I can shoot at and the trajectory is something like

    -1.5" @ 25
    -.7" @ 50
    -.1" @ 75
    0" @ 100
    -2.4 @ 200

    First shot at the left upper target with irons. I don't know how my windage changed from the last time I shot but I had to move it left. After a few more shots, I shot 3 on the bottom. Then I fired 10 rounds from my CZ 75B for fun. I put on the T-1 and it was way low (almost not on paper). I moved it up some but it was still low.

    Put up a new target to verify and it was off a tiny bit. First 3 group shot with irons was perfect (front post is right under the circle with 6 o'clock hold). Put on the T-1 for the right side and I think it's a little low since the dot should be on the X. After shooting the top circle, I moved the RDS 2 clicks to the right (1/4" @ 25yd).

    And last target of the day. 10 shot groups. The target is NRA SR-21 which is about 6.5" diameter.

    Temp was right around 32 degrees and my hands and fingers were getting stiff. What kind of groups should I expect? I had my BCM hat on and shouldve probably worn the LaRue had he sent me.

    27 degrees with light wind. Had 41 rounds left over from yesterday and I brought 20 rounds of Prvi 75gr Match to try at 100yd.

    I don't know wth is going on with me or my rear sight. I started out at 25 yd and it was shooting to the right again. Moved it down to 50 and everything looked ok. Down at a hundered with new ammo it was shooting 4" to the right while the aimpoint was still kind of centered.

    Im going again tomorrow and will bring Prvi M193.

    You should be able to get better groups than that with the T-1. I've never shot the Federal bulk ammo but with decent ammo and the micro I would imagine you should be able to keep it all within the 10 ring. Just speculation though.

    I've read a lot about the 75gr Privi sucking balls so you my want to try some different ammo.
