very well actually. however, i have not had time to get it out beyond 250 yards. the new stock allows putting 30-40 rounds through it before my shoulder starts to feel it a little. probably another 40 rounds and i might start aching a bit.
my main issue/concern is the scope. the dial screws loosen up after a few rounds and the dial just spins on the shaft without clicking. i put some locktite on the screws and i'll find out next time out if that does the trick.

i plan to do the barstow meet up on 22feb which should allow some much longer ranges http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=142529

What do you mean by dial screws? Are these for adjusting the windage / elevation, or for locking the scope down?

Either way - can't be good...

If they shoot loose, does this affect your settings or just your ability to adjust your settings? I can't imagine why these are getting loose on your scope. How odd.

it does not affect the actual settings (thankfully), just affects the ability to change them. i am hoping the locktite will take care of that... until i can afford to get a new scope after i finish my ar build.

Oh, and I know someone else said it already, but thanks for posting this in your .sig file. A lot of people get it wrong and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who is annoyed by that
