While you are at it buy a bag of 1,000 cleaning patches and save dough there.
I use the cheap mil-spec multi-piece rods for that. The chamber brush threads in nicely, and you lock the T-handle to the shaft, then run a different section through the hole to make a non-free-spinning handle for the brush. Works beautifully.

****can the accu-wedge. The play in the upper and lower has no effect on accuracy, but the extra tension caused by the wedge CAN egg out the holes in your upper or lower receiver over time.

Yeah...that's a solution too. Problem is the GI Cleaning rods run around $9-20 depending on where you get them and for that dough you can just get the dewey rod.

I've got a couple of those GI rods I managed to liberate during my service. But I never get around to digging them out of the old duffle bag.

I think I paid $8 for the last kit I got, including bore brush, nylon brush, patch loop and storage pouch.

Wedge is gone. Didn't buy it for the accuracy gimmick, just wanted to get rid of the wiggle.

The wiggle is something you get used to. Different upper and lower combos will have different levels of wiggle to them.

Indeed, it's nothing bad & I understand the purpose of not having a custom fit so its not really an issue!

Placed a bid for a Geissele SSA trigger. Fingers crossed!

Good luck with the bit! If you don't win it, I'd get one from bravocompanyusa, or directly from the Geissele website. Both have the SSA trigger in stock for $210, both sources ship very fast too. I have three Geissele suber combat, and one SSA. By far the best upgrade I have done to my AR's.

Lost it @ 195 -- not a spectacular deal anyway. I'll probably hold off now until next pay period and order one. Need more ammo now anyway I suppose -- starting to run low. You installed the triggers yourself?

The SSA pops up for sale around $175 pretty frequently. Keep an eye on PSA.

How far apart are the 1st and second stages on the SSA? I am used to a single stage and was thinking a single stage that breaks around 4lbs would suit me.

Range Trip Today

Black Rifle Forum

I thought the overcast fall weather would make for a nice stop at the range this afternoon. Six magazines each loaded with three rounds and a target fifty yards away. Obviously the results are nothing magnificent by any means but I am satisfied with the results.

Getting ready to take a basic rifle course, but I'm going to need a sling -- anyone have some recommendations?

Faux King, just went through this post. I just purchased the Colt LE6920 SOCOM as well last weekend. I have become pretty familiar with handguns over the last two years but this is all new territory for me. I have been on You Tube and browsing around the internet a lot. I have ammo for it and am picking up extra Mags this weekend. I have not fired it and would like to take a pretty in depth beginners course that takes me from A-Z.

Don't take this suggestion as coming from experience but I bookmarked this suggestion concerning slings as I will eventually need one as well - it is from Magpul:

Nice purchase! I'm sure you'll love shooting your new rifle, I know I do! I've been looking at a Vickers or VTAC two-point slings, not sure which way I'll go yet!
