GREAT to here man! Taking her to the range sometime this weekend. Can't really go wrong with Beretta I guess. The lack of a slide release didn't bother me as she can't even use it anyway. The nice heavy and smooth trigger pull and the easy pull back on the slide were main factors.

I'm thinking of doing the Sig slide in that burnt copper color.

Single target today, just out for some fun. New Sig works great, although the reset on the trigger is a little different.

My buddy got to try out his slide fire stock, and I broke out the Mossberg.

I got the slide back today. Slide was milled by L&M Precision, RM07 installed with Ameriglo suppressor height night sights and cerakoted in Sniper Gray. Waiting on the frame to come back from being stippled, finger bumps removed, and trigger undercut.

I think the Remington needs more rails.

Just picked up this "pre-ban" Glock in the nick of time. Now I've got to sell my Walther PPK/S to pay for it. Click image for larger version

SO this started as a feeling that the UTG rail I have makes my AR a liiittle front heavy and that I could improve the balance of it.
I'm in walmart and I see this Blackhawk Sporter AR-15 rail kit for around $25, came with two rails and attachment hardware (no allen wrench ) and the rails taper on the bottom so that they are flat with the barrel.

overall it made the rifle feel a liiitle bit lighter and a lot better balanced, and I didn't really need anything more that a bottom rail for my personal favorite grip, the magpul AFG 2, instead of using the left rail with a lo-pro cover and my thumb holding area it just wraps up top and holds on the ridges or the stock handguards, can't wait to shoot it to see the difference now.

this rifle already feels front heavy because of the thick barrel, and the quad rail only made it worse, I've wondered about making the back end heavier with a different buttstock, but didn't want more overall weight either, so this works well.
(in the pistol grip I keep any allen wrenches needed for accessories and a front sight tool, wrapped in a shop towel to keep them from rattling)


old UTG, looks cool, but unnecessarily heavy for my needs

new setup

example of taper and hardware

Blue threadlocker on the screws

Sometimes overall weight is not the issue, but rather the balance. If you feel like the rifle is too front-heavy, increasing weight on the rear will change the overall dynamic and feel. Sometimes this balance mitigates the problem. The closer the weight is to your body, the easier it is to carry because you can use your core muscles. The farther out and away it is, the more strength that's required from your arms and shoulders.

That being said, I've observed that a lot of times the discomfort is not from the weight itself, but from the lack of familiarity with the feel of the weight, as well as lack of consistent repetition with that weight through use. What may feel heavy at first, generally won't feel heavy once you start to work with it and get proficient with the platform.

What may feel heavy at first, generally won't feel heavy once you start to work with it and get proficient with the platform.

I can see that, but I had the same feeling with my 10/22 before I modified it, extremely awkward and front heavy feeling. When I changed the heavy steel 18" barrel for a Tactical Solutions 16" aluminum/chromoly sleeved barrel, which was half the weight, I instantly felt more comfortable shooting the rifle, and noticed my standing hit ratio went waay up at 100 yds, so I applied that same theory to the AR and it seemed to have helped at least in pointing it.

Pic of the 10/22 in its current setup, stripped of all the BS and extra rails as well, may add a Magpul AFG at some point. The scope is the one thing I'd like to upgrade as it's a cheap walmart one bought to replace the cheaper walmart one that my dad had on the gun in it's wood stock days. this receiver is a 1984 built gun. older than me. haha
