this is gonna be a Midrange Prone rig for me for at least this year and next year. i still love my service rifle, and i'm knocking on the door with getting my HighMaster card with it.When it comes down to it, it's all just a matter of physics.

What are your thoughts on the RISR?
I love LaRue products and I own alot of their stuff but this is something I think I'm staying away from. The way I see it; this is a solution for a nonexistent problem. I’m a ‘nose to charging handle’ shooter so the check riser is useless unless I have the stock in the first two positions. Also I run Aimpoint T1’s on LaRue tall mounts and as of right now (without the RISR I have a perfect checkweld and line-up with my optics). I also see a huge problem if the slide gets jammed with dirt, sand or whatever because the charging handle isn’t going to be able to get pulled back.
If your using a CTR on a non AR platform then you can buy the Magpul risers for $10 and you don't have the need for the check rest to slide back.
I don't know I'm pondering the idea of one for my AR-10 but I haven't found any reviews yet.

I was surprised to find that I scored better with my Troy irons than with my NF 2.5-10xx32, even while having to make a few adjustments to get the rounds into scoring rings. It seemed to me that with the RISR, my sight picture on the Troy's was near on perfect, and I was doing better than when I had shot with my irons in weeks previous. With my scope however, things were not going quite so good. I was having difficulty getting a good sight picture on the target, though I am not convinced it is entirely the fault of the RISR. While I believe it contributed to my problems, being the first time I had used it; I think I just need to work on positioning of my scope and stock for eye relief. Easy to do when when sitting at the bench and shooting on a bipod, another thing entirely when standing and shooting off-hand.
I am leaning positive on it so far, but I still need a lot more time behind the sights before I can make a final decision on whether it stays or goes.When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

well, i finally got around to purchasing my first firearms...went down to Four Seasons a couple weeks ago and loaded up with these beauties:
Sig 556 SCM and a S&W M&P 9mm, along with about 1500 rds of 9mm and 600 rds of .223, and the M-Pro 7 cleaning kit.
I figure that will keep me busy for a few weeks

Fine choices, Shine. I would've gone for a Walther instead of the M&P though.When .gov starts shooting at you, it sucks not being able to shoot back

I haven't received it yet and with all the traffic issues due to severe winter weather it may not
arrive in time to be put under the Christmas tree. Saves me "the looks" from the lady, lol"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five?
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself....
you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?"

Sort of a firearm acquisition, it's a stock for one. After seeing Knob Creek post this in November:
and numerous PM's later I decided I had to have one. Well, little did I know these things(the stock) haven't been made for quite some time, and originally were sold to police departments ONLY. Hence the "For Law Enforcement Only" stamp that they all have. So the only chance of getting one was a retired 870 and even then alot of PD's didn't have them as the recoil is brutal, especially with it being all steel. I started doing some research and saw that just the stocks alone were averaging anywhere from $175 and up. After trolling gunbroker for a couple weeks and seeing them go for premium prices I managed to find one on ebay(dummy seller). Having not labeled the product well but putting up a picture, I knew exactly what it was and scored it for $127.50 today. Looks to be in great condition, and i plan on having it refinished anyway while I undergo my 80's style 870 tactical shotgun build:
Once i source a good retired 870 police magnum and have it all refinished to my liking, I'll post more pics. KC if you want me to take down your two pics just let me know, I was just using them for reference.
