EOTech

Posted in Uncategorized on November 25, 2007 by recoiltherapy

Holographic sights on AR’s are nothing new, at least to everyone except me. I just outfitted my black rifle with Troy Industries BUIS (back up iron sight) and an EOTech 512 (AA battery model). A quick range trip confirmed what I have been missing all along….this is the way to go….one eye, two eyes no difference…parallax free…niiiice!

A quick mental tally confirms that I now have as much invested in accessories on this rifle as the total price of my first build a year or so ago.

Here’s my youngest brother shooting it in its current form……..

The drought comes to an end

I hadn’t found a nice snubby S&W revolver , or made a post here, for quite some time. So we’ll kill the proverbial two birds with one stone this week.

Perusing the pawn shops, what else would I be doing!, turned up a very nice S&W 686-1 revolver. It had the 2.5″ barrel, a nice high ride Bucheimer holster and factory finger-groove combat grips. The gun had belonged to a retired lady federal agent. It doesn’t show signs of being shot a bunch, just a little carry wear to the stocks. The DA trigger has been tuned, and elicited OOOOH’s from all who tried it. Buttery smooth would be an understatement.

The 686 model has a full lug under the barrel and beefed up frame distinguishing it from the earlier Model 66. Some prefer the lines and slightly lighter weight of the 66, but I like this newer model just fine.On the plus side, the L frame 686 will take more full power punishment than the K frame 66.

Enough pontificating, on with the gun porn………………………
