I don't know why, but when I see posts by someone in a free state pictures just aren't enough. I WANT VIDEO!!!

Because, maybe then I will feel like I am there.

The gun looks great, OP. Congrats.

Looks really nice!

Does it have enough NRR, with the can, to comfortably shoot without any hearing protection?

Ive had a very few issues with shooting with the can. Mostly it may get jammed up because it gets SUPER dirty. Like after a 100 rnds I needs to wipe down the feed ramp. Blow back isn't bad and with the RMR is make it a blast to shoot.
