I got the safe queen out and shot her for the first time Thursday.



and this is the first 5 shot group out of the gun,(1:7 colt gov. profile 20")

well crap, hunt 101 is not up right now :evil: anyway the group is just a hair smaller than 1" and that includes one flyer, if I take out the flyer then is should go around 3/4" (I will need to look at the pic again to be sure). I say not bad for a milspec trigger/rifle and I was standing just braced against the campertop on my truck. I was shooting federal premium 55g Nosler Balistic Tip ammo. Scope is a leupold VXII 3-9-40 Tactical, sitting on CHEAP rings/base.

She is/was a new unfired blue lable preban colt. Had her for 10+ years and the other day I decided to put the RRA flat top upper on it and see what she could do. Now that the ban is dead no use letting them sit any longer in the safe. :D

Nope, it is a RRA upper, just has a very ruff finish on it with oil on it too. I usualy let my new AR parts soak in oil for a little while and that will make the finish look a little better. That pic was taken about 3 minutes after the build was completed. :wink:

BTW: It does look better now, it is still just hard to match the Colt gray.
