    Good photos there John, and a great fun piece to add to the armoury. Thanks

    Cheers Gil, fun rifle to shoot, I wasn't really trying to group it to be honest, just get the action bedded in a bit with a bit of brass conversion and get her roughly zeroed, but once zeroed in, it was shooting very well indeed, looking forward to a proper range session to see what accuracy its really capable of, rested and scoped.

    I tested the AR on Wednesday at 50 yds with a 3x9x40 scope on it and was amazed at the accuracy, it just kept printing sub 1" groups off my shooting bench. A couple of heath Robinson mods made to tighten things up

    Adhesive felt pad added to the buffer tube to stop the slop in the butt, works a treat and the same cut into two thin strips and added under the rear take down pin, sort of home made "accu wedge" stops any movement between the upper and lower completely.

    Sounds good John, As I've got my little wind fall I've a little bit of cash burning a hole in my pocket, I'm looking out for a nice semi auto .22........ I can at least buy another GSG MP5 for parts and finish off my project.......... but I'm tempted for a AR15 type.

    Evening Geoff, I can recommend these mate, it was nice to finally get a scope on it and properly test the accuracy.

    The relatively light trigger is a big help.

    It was a relatively calm day and perfect to push the range out and further test the accuracy ... unfortunately before I had a chance to test her out to 100 yds, the tractor turned up to mow the range and curtailed shooting for the day...

    The Tippmen is going through a bit of a makeover at the moment, always used Israeli Fab Defence gear in the past on AR's, so I've gone fab again.

    Fab defence mid length handguard, special factory order, pistol grip and butt with riser...

    Still a few things on the 'to do' list, upper/lower refinishing etc, but that will have to wait until it's outside warranty.

    I think a lot is down to the long bolt travel of the L12A1 bolt group and the large port to chuck out the spent case. I have a feeling the reason the Tippmenn appears to operate so reliably is also down to long bolt travel. The short stroke bolt group in my old Spikes Tactical used to jam spent cases quite often.

    The quality of .22 lr ammo does vary, ever tried Remington Thunderbolt ....They are truly horrible quality ... God knows what the propellant is, smokes like a steam train and covers everything with sooty residue! My best guess would be black powder mixed with curry powder ... Looking at the consistency of the groups, I guess some have way more curry powder than others.
    We only ship the BP/Curry Thunderbolts to Englandicon. The good stuff we keep for ourselves.

    Hi Al,

    Joking aside, we struggled to get any .22lr out of the States a couple of years ago, but now all the CCI ammo seems to be available in quantity.

    My AR seems to particularly like mini mag, accurate and never misses a beat.



    It's a great little rifle and I can have fun shooting her at much lower cost than my full bore rifles.
