    Probably a little from Column A and B. I was really babying the sling tension so that may have had something to do with it.

    So my A2 went on a diet
    I weighed my rifle several times and the final weight was 7.8lbs it right around 125oz,
    First off was the crappy “mil style” A2 brake. Below the welded and pinned brake and about 1” of barrel. I need to face and cut the crown. Most likely I will re crown ala Harry Potterfield style

    I also decided to borrow the Houge round Free float and aluminum barrel nut , will weigh that soon and compare. From another upper.

    So now my A2 pre 2019 rules compliant rifle should be rules compliant for post rule changes. I also hope to pick up a few accuracy nodes with the free float.

    Harbor Freight Sawsall, BUT I only buy the good harbor freight tools!
    9 Amp Heavy Duty Variable Speed Reciprocating Saw

    i have a jig like the one harry uses and recrowning tools.
    Although if I can find the time I will take up a offer to use a lathe to face it and cut a recessed crown.

    Nice! I'd be surprised if you don't see better accuracy from the free float. I don't think CMP really thought this through. Allowing free float is going to backfire against their intention.

    IDK i never really laid this gun down for any accuracy testing. Its seen a diet of PPU M193 and wolf gold along with steel shit.
    I have a box of 1000 69gn CustomComp to run through it.

    Ju st need to decide on 11' crown or recessed target style.?

    im little rough with my guns so I need some protection. I did the ala harry square up and ready to crown

    UPDATE: I pulled a Doh!
    Seems I decided to weigh my A2 with out bolt and charge handle. When I reweighed my rifle after cutting and swapping hand Guards I gained weight!! WTF
    Ok so now I say to myself "do I really have a A2 barrel like I was led to believe when I bought it. I should have known the minute I pulled the hand guards off. There is no taper on this barrel. A quick call to RRA and the fine lady said if its not tapered its a "Hbar" style barrel. with the brake and 1" of barrel lopped off im still over 3 lbs.

    So now the fun part: MAC's custom barrels. They will be the perfect 17 47/64" long Custom saw mark crown and odd ball fluting!

    I figure I can cut another chunk of barrel off and loose 2oz. Then take off some metal under the handguards!

    Hey, I think we are inventing a new CMP competition category that requires no ammo: it's called piss off the inspector. Points scored by number of curse words. Usually the inspectors are from 'Bama, and it's extra difficult to get a Southerner to curse in public. I forecast that the winning score will be in the single digits and require inspection of at least 3 'iffy' MM rifles. Of course you only shoot one of them- the others are for inspection sport.

    So now there's an unwritten rule that barrels must be tapered? Dis gonna be good...

    I took my SP1 out again today. Leaned on the sling a little bit more this time.

    Tried to bang out a clean for the postal match, but that didn't happen.

    Then I did a rapid fire prone - great group, wrong spot.

    I was holding over a CH to the left in slow prone, so perhaps I need to come over at least one click - which is a minute on the A1 rear sight.
