Oh dang, been a while.

Well, since last year I put together a handy little carbine, spent way too long debating on optics and stuff, but finally got to shoot it for the first time today.


For anyone interested in the specs:

Bravo Company 11.5 pistol, enhanced lightweight profile barrel, MCMR (M-Lok) rail, Mod 0 compensator, Mod 1 grip, KAG, and rail covers
Scalarworks PEAK sights
Trijicon MRO "Patrol" on a Scalarworks LEAP lower 1/3 co-witness mount
Geissele Airborne charging handle
V-Seven magazine release and bolt release
Arisaka Scout 300 light with a Malkoff emitter on an Arisaka inline rail mount running off a SureFire SR07 pressure pad
SB Tactical SBA3 brace

I think I hit the jackpot on this little guy.  My friend at the range had two ARs that we compared it to:  A 16" Ruger AR-556 and a custom built 7" pistol.
For some reason my BCM felt like it had less recoil than the Ruger (possibly due to the compensator?) while being a little handier and quicker on target.  While the 7" was fun it was really blasty and a little harder to handle because of it's tiny size, you kinda gotta scrunch up behind it.  The 7" is definitely more of a range toy, and while the 16" is likely more accurate than my 11.5" it didn't seem practically so.
This BCM seems like the perfect little fighting rifle.  I might put a Geissele trigger in it but the stock BCM trigger is pretty decent.  Also probably put a SureFire Warcomp on it, but only because I want to get a SOCOM suppressor eventually.

It was the first time I'd gone shooting in something like 5 years.  Definitely overdue.

Of course, now that there's an ammo shortage I probably won't go again any time soon.  5.56 and 9mm are practically worth their weight in gold right now, so I'm sitting on my remaining rounds for the time being.
