The AR57 select fire debacle…

I love the idea of the 5.7, so it was all to natural to end up with a five-seven upper for my AR. When I tried that on my select fire receiver, I instantly fell into sad panda mood… Turns out the bolt carrier group provided is semi auto ONLY. Since its a special BCG, replacements were needed.

Just a pic of the two side by side shows there is not much difference, but enough to kill the giggle switch.

Gun Light, on the cheap

Built a simple little combo for a cheap weapon light. I hate how these things go for 100$ and up, when the parts are worth 20$.

Using the best stuff China has to offer, I was able to put together a neat combo..
