Most welcome, sir - I know it can be a pain but it really is worth the trouble to fiddle with it a while and get it set properly.

Wow - lesson learned, I bet. I'm glad all turned out ok!

You're too kind, thank you - not so sure about that as we have many talented shooters here, but I was pleased with this rifle's performance. I'd actually put it up for sale on another forum maybe 9...

I gave up on wheelweights about 10 years ago - I was getting far too much zinc for too much effort.

An STG, very cool - that has probably the best FAL barrel ever made; definitely worth putting some glass on her.

FAL, iron sights

I build this Imbel kit on a DSA type 2 receiver in Nov 2017 - sighted it in at a 25 yd indoor range and stuck it in the safe.

That's nothing - I remember them pulling back AR15s from people they'd sold to so they could gouge higher prices.

Howard Leights crushed the hell out of my ears after an hour, and my ears ain't big - I've never in my life had a pair of muffs that hurt me. I went to a set of Walker Razors and couldn't be happier.
