I wasted so much money on cosmetic changes but I THINK I'm finally happy with these configuration, at least for a month. :D Both have been tested in simulated battle at Chabot's Tac rifle matches and both performed flawlessly. For some reason I tend to favor the Stag though. :shrug:

MI 10" FF HG

Wow, so close. But one thing could be just a little bit better. You know what I'm talking about. Just think about it for awhile. It will come to you. You'll see it in this month's SWAT magazine. And you'll probably need two of them.

They look good. Do you prefer the BB gen 1 or BB gen 2?

Good choices dude but what happened to the MMG? You know that you'll have to slap that on there come match time, especially considering how well you've been shooting.
BTW, you know your Aimpoints are just crying out for some LaRue lovin'.

Tell me about it. Was just on ARF.com and I just saw something I like. May need to get another lower for another PG build and with B-15 this time. :no:

BB 2 is easier to install and remove. Will have to try the B-15 though. Another reason to get another lower. :p

MMG Lower is in the safe. May have to build a dedicated 18" JP 3Gun upper for it so I don't ding up these beauts. Larue cantilever will have to wait if I decide to get a magnifier. These Burris XTRs are solid though. :)

Those both look like carbine gassed barrels.
Once you shot a rifle-gassed upper like a JP or one I build, you would never want to shoot those carbines again.
Rifle gas system shoots smoother, faster and flatter.

Some of us actually like having short guns ;)

Nothing wrong with short guns, just short gas systems. ;)
16" barrels are fine with mid-length or even intermediate length gas systems.
Rifle length is pushing it on a 16", but it can be done too.
I run a 17" rifle gassed barrel on my 3gun rifle.
That was the best combination of reliable function, flat shooting and compact length.

So for an 18" barrel, would a rifle gas be better than a mid gas?

For a competition gun, yes.
For a military or duty gun used in sub-zero temperatures, no.

Dude, those Aimpoints are totally last year - might as well throw them away. You need the T-1 Micro if you're going to be getting the hot babes with a short gun.

I have absolutely no idea how you get a decent nights rest knowing that those two beauties are just sitting there, not reaching their fullest potential due to their lack of match triggers.:p...but maybe its just me.

nice rifles!

I have a Timney comp trigger on my MMG lower and an RRA NM 2 stage on my varminter. I really need to get my priorities straight and buy some new work clothes and shoes before I can upgrade the triggers on these. :D
