Tried a Romeo 5 and a Vortex SPARC out front on the tiny rifle but this clearance Sightmark worked better than either at this elevated height. Amazed it not only ran but ran with minumum gas block adjustment. Figure the cheap sight may be better as think this may be more of a toy than working gun. Almost too small unless use it like a pistol. ;-)

Knock offs but just got half dozen more sets of Matechs.

Edit:
The red dot sight with riser is near perfect 1/3 cowitness.

This little toy can point shoot with it if all sight systems fail. Can say for sure a 7.5" 6.8 spc II is a heck of a muzzle blast in the face without a suppressor snapped on. Wanted to test with and without and get set so know how to quickly adjust gas based on whether running can or not. While none are going to be piston drive found an 8.5" 458 SOCOM barrel in the search fairly cheap.

So now my single rifle project that morphed into a pair (almost always do pairs anyway) became a third and now contemplating ordering a fourth bolt carrier group and doing an 8.5" pistol with a Noveske Flaming Pig knock off in 45 caliber. Just bought a 30 caliber authentic Pig but they don't make a 45 and can find 45 caliber copies on fleabay. With the fireball that erupts from the 7.5" 6.8 can only imagine an 8.5" 458 SOCOM fireball rolling out of a Flaming Pig knock off. Hate doing it but doubt they will spin me up one for kicks.

Due to discussion on Bolt Hold Open malfunction with Superlative Arms piston kits and what issue was took both my 6.8 piston pistols out and tested with 6.8 cal ASC, D&H, AR Stoner, Palmetto magazines and 5.56 Lancer L7's. Both of mine worked perfectly with all magazines though the odd Battle Arms Development was engaging too hard but only rifle assembled in years without an M16 Clinic Buffer Pad. The polyurethane buffer pads reduce the beating between buffer and tail of bolt carrier along with fixing bolt overrun issues most times.

Because of the round spring loaded ball did not try to cut hole and make a washer design buffer pad but tomorrow am going to try it as last round bolt lock up was so aggressive that took two to three hard slaps of bolt release to get it to unlock a few times which are classic bolt overrun symptoms. Note ball in center of buffer.



While testing with the tiny 7.5" pistol and the AAC 762SDN-6 looked next door and about 60 yards out was a ground hog frozen. I was shooting and he had to come straight at me to get in his hole which was right between us. He was totally vapor locked standing and facing me, not knowing what to do so I twisted, put red dot center of body and the Speer 90 grain TNT hit him in chest turning him into stew. So much for the little 1:7 barrel over spinning full power ammo, the short barrel losing too much velocity and all that. Had it been a zombie would have left a hole the size of a cantaloupe out its back. Didn't have room to create all the wound channel it wanted to in the hog as plowed a trench in slight uprising lawn behind him wide as a shovel about three feet long and sprayed blood and guts for 25 feet. Never thought I was building a varmint rifle...
