500 yards slow fire 10 shots (prone) human silhouette target
I was better with my saw than a M16 any day. I got issued the saw the first week I was sent to the fleet. I feel in love rt at that moment. I carried it for 2 1/2 years. I even carried it as a fire team leader and squad leader. My CO knew how good I was with it, he would not let them take it away from me. When I would go on patrol I would carry 1000 round with me and my own spare barrel. People outside of my company thought I was crazy to carry it.

Actually, based off of my tactical training, that's about right for the M16/AR15 rifle. Kick isn't an issue, and if you put it much further down on your shoulder you won't get a good cheek weld without craning your neck sideways. But you have to find what works for you and then stay consistent.

After seeing footage of a marine some were in the pacific walking around with air cooled browning .30 machine gun retrofitted (rigged) up with a shoulder strap and cloth around the barrel to keep from burning his hands don't disbelieve you one bit sir

Actually, removing the air injection system has no effect on the fuel-air ratio, so it will be the same after as before. The system introduces ambient air post exhaust valve in order to facilitate the combustion of unburnt hydrocarbons in the escaping stream; it does nothing to affect neither the air nor the fuel which enter the engine. The engine will run no better and no worse add a result of removing the system; however, removing the system will result in a weight reduction.

The only tactical training that I got was in Uncle Sam's green machine. Been a few years, but... FM 3-22.9, four fundamentals, chapter four.

The free flowing exhaust would lean it out though.

I may be wrong, but pretty sure I'm not. Looking at the length of the mag well, thats a 308 platform, so an AR10. That rifle has a lot more kick than the standard AR15 .223 platform. If he shot it in his current posture, it would knock him over. With any caliber its always best to lean into the rifle to counteract the recoil. When you lean over/into it your shoulder covers up more of the stock, allowing it to be mounted lower and yet not have as much leaning with your head. There is a reason my name is "Shooter"Dave. LOL

I'll send you a PM of it.

I agree with that. I didn't notice the larger mag well. I was just commenting on the shoulder placement. He definitely needs to lean into it more. Quicker follow-up shots.

Doing one without the other will actually make your bike run worse....thats what some of the cautioning was about.

You need to be informed on the changes before you start making them.
But thats what we're here for
Reinstalled the snorkel this morning with two plastic auto body and fender rivets Just for now until I can get the mods together. I took a photo but can't figure out how to post, lol.

Great point, albeit a separate issue. Although on both counts I find the stock brakes to be excellent.
They've never let me down and I've never wished they were better.
Not do I feel the need for a scapegoat.
