They're being used for home defense as well as hunting. The big thing with subsonics is the ability to suppress 'em. If you have your NFA paperwork you can buy uppers already fitted with a suppressor.

This is just an example. Product Details: 10.5" 300 Blackout w/ 10" Tac Quad + Pinned Black Widow Monocore Suppressed upper

What did you do besides moving the optic, removing the side rail, and adding a BAD lever?

Just stuck those base plates on my mags- not sure if I like them. Moved the rail with the sling attachment towards the rear, seems to function better for me, even though I really never have it on there when shooting, lol. For some reason I have always been goofy for slings. The dot works lots better for me forward like that- not sure why I had it back there. I wish these rifles weren't so expensive to shoot (I have little time to get into reloading).

Rick: I'm a kinda rigid traditionalist, blued steel, walnut stock, etc, but I have to say that's a fine looking rifle.

So fine that the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia would put you away in "Q" forever for owning it. I cannot imagine any shooter in this state having guns with a paper trail. Michiganders are a lot safer due to clear-thinking voters.

The weather's good in SoCal, tho (most of the time--not lately) and that's about the end of the attraction.

Happy shooting. Maybe you'll comment on results?

I've both bought and assembled several more since my last post in this thread, but here's my latest completed project.

Acquired a few more since the last post.


Also went out to New Mexico in September to the NRA Whittington Center to shoot long range. Had a riot! Shot out to 1123yds.





Rifle is a Howa APC 6.5Creedmoor (suppressed).

Tell us more about your rifles, if you don't mind. I often wonder what sort of hardware folks across the pond are using.

Not too long ago I picked up a Ruger Precision Rimfire that has been my primary use .22LR rifle since I got it (it sports a suppressor now, too).

Recently acquired a Kel Tech CP33 .22LR pistol as well.

The .22 LR is a CZ 455 ,I use that one just for fun, shooting paper - super precise.
The 308 and 9,3 are barrels on a Blaser R93 Offroad stock. I use the 308 to shoot predators,roe deer,odd wild boars ,steel plates. The 9,3 is mostly used on driven hunts for wild boar, I've shot all kinds of critters with it.. Both barrels are very easy to load for and also very accurate. Sub moa with factory ammo, around 0,5 moa with my loads. I chose the blaser system because of their proprietary mounting system (100% return to 0 ) and their modularity. Same stock,same trigger ,multiple calibres and you can pack 2 barrels,2 scopes and the stock in an Uncle Mike`s Shotgun bag..
Veery packable(with a 100% return to zero and no shift in POI).
Before getting the Blaser I had a Rizzini combination gun (12 ga over 7x65R) and a Mauser M98 in 8x57is.


Best regards,

CZ 455's are sweet!
Those Blaser R93's are really nice, too. The biggest drawback is that they are insanely expensive here in the states. I believe that they've been discontinued, but I could be wrong. The R8 is available, but they are still a bit too pricey for my budget to allow.

I got mine second hand with the 9,3x62 barrel,added the 308 after that.
Good thing about this system is that you can buy the parts and then assemble everything your self.

R93 for sure is discontinued ,parts are still relatively easy to come by though. In any case if you are not shooting heavy magnums - the R93 is the better gun(lighter,slimmer,trimmer. ).
308 has very good barrel life,the barrel life on the 9,3x62 is insanely long so I'll be good for many more years of hunting.

I'm really thinking of buying a handgun or two. With everything that's happening you just have to be ready.

One is none, two is one, and three is better.
The point being that one can suffer a malfunction, in which case you essentially have a rock. If you have two the chances of both malfunctioning is quite small. If you have three, then you probably have enough functioning arms AND ammo to get out of trouble.
