Not the most exotic gun but I found that I can load 5 rounds of 6.5 Grendel in a 30 rd 5.56 magazine without trouble. The red dot is a Vortex SPARC ; if I remember the front and back flip up sights are by Magpul. The flashlight is just there - take a picture lol!

I now have AR uppers or complete guns in .22LR (remove BCG and drop in the conversion bolt/barrel insert and bang away); a Colt M4, S&W M&P .22 AR, and a Colt M4 .22 - of those three the S&W and 522 are tops but the Colt? You need to loosen the muzzle brake but be careful two parts will fall out of the receiver area if you aren't careful. Also in my "AR" Collection I have (the obvious) DPMS M-16A2, a Sig 556 - the 556 is a hybrid gun - a cross between an AR and an AK - it uses a gas piston instead of a gas tube; a Colt M4 9mm, a Olympic Arms 10mm upper, a suppressor ready .300 Blackout upper, and now, the 6.5 Grendel upper. In the pistol category I have a PSA 9mm AR9 Pistol and an Olympic Arms OA-93 5.56 Pistol:

Olympic Arms products aren't up to Colt in terms of fit and finish but they sure do work! I have had one of the carbines in .45 ACP for nearly thirty years and it never falters and is amazingly accurate. I considered getting a 10mm upper for it but never did. The only downside is the proprietary magazines.

Well-traveled S&W Victory 1943 shipped to USN Rosslyn, VA, likely the OSS Fowler Building.

P proof on left upper frame and “W” marked butt. German post-war eagles and police marked “70 WB-S-HDBG” for Baden-Württemberg-Stadtkreis-Heidelberg on backstrap and left grip base. Wurttemberg Baden is a German state; Stadtkreis translates to urban district; and Heidelberg is a city.

Just picked up this Sig P-210 today. I've owned accurate 9mm pistols but never had a target grade 9mm...now I need to see whether I have any match grade 9mm ammunition.


I also picked up this Ruger Security-Six snubby at the same time.
