View Full Version : New toy, range report

Im a sucker for 5.7x28 round. No recoil and lots of damage, you can also carry a bunch of round with little weight. So I build a new toy. Its a AR57 upper with a few mods. I took it out today to get it sighted in. Im using a Bushnell red dot and was sighting it in on a bench with no rest. Range was 35 yards. Next week Ill be replacing the stock trigger with a 2lb JARD. So far Im loving this bad boy. Heres the last target shooting a ten round mag.

Nice! What buffer tube is that?

You noticed? Its brand new from Phase five. They did their homework. Its got a notch on the threads so when you screw it on the notch sits right on the detent. Im the first one to run it. Thats also their brake. Its very LOUD and shoots some crazy flames.

Also if anyone wants to see the bowling pin I shot at its pretty crazy. If you have ever shot at one you know how much damage they can take. I was shocked at what the 5.7 round did to it.

Super :thumbsup:

I have a jard trigger on one of my AR's and love it.

How does it eject shells? I noticed that you also have a magazine attached.

Yeah I have the JARD in my AR10. Its a awesome trigger you just have to know how to install it.
The shells eject into the bottom mag. I gutted that 30 rounder and I can fit a TON on spent cashes in it. Its pretty cool, I reload so no searching for the brass. Built in brass catcher!

12" barrel? How balanced does it feel in your hand?

Ill get a pic tomorrow. Its pretty tore up,lol.
Because of how short the gun is its pretty balanced. I can see myself shooting it a bunch.
