This is great

I have some cheap steel cased 9mm that a rented sig did not like.. however my friend's Canik ate it up .

Happy to meet anyone at a range and shoot the sh*t (no pun).. and validate the quality of my equipment.

I have an HA-15 from Hanover Armory. I got it spring this year. Around 300 or so rounds so far. I really like it. Red dot, magpul BUIS, BCM furniture, and ambi charging handle added since.

If you want to come to Bel Air, we can go over your AR. I’ll have to find my headspace gauges.

An AR15 rifle is no good without a Punisher skull decal on the magwell.

Lots of variables there... there's no way to know when the rented sig was last cleaned, what it was lubed with, if the recoil spring was due to be changed... etc.

If you can't find yours, let me know and I'll drop by with my gauges for you to use on it.

I "upgrade" to ambidextrous controls (charging handle and safety) and usually change out the grip to a Magpul MOE or MOE+ one for comfort on my own personal ones.
IMO- This is the best suggestion in the thread.
For me, the game changer upgrade was adding a LaRue MBT trigger. It was $75ish and made a world of difference.

Be cautious about going to Teratos' shipping container. Some strange things (and some glorious things) have happened in there. Ask Outrider58 about the chloroform rag some time.

Right now I've just been getting used to shooting it with the irons.. i did run out of 5.56 though! I thought I struck gold at 6am the other day when it popped up on Cabelas for $429 /1k ... ordered it and two days later got the cancellation email. Now Im staring at $750 if I want 1k... hoping it changes post election?

As for upgrades, charging handle sticks out to me as it feels flimsy and it is small to grab quickly. Any reccomendations?
Keep an eye on the classifieds here. People are selling .223 ammo for much less than online pricing. It is expensive, but in our current climate, the price is pretty good.
This is Wolf Gold, which is good brass cased ammo. It is not the crappy steel cased ammo people equate Wolf with.
