Welcome to the boards !
Which rear sight did you use?
Williams WGRS 700 ghost ring rear sight
So now this has me thinking. I'm usually one to think of off-the-wall crap that probably wouldn't be practical and may not even work.
Would it be possible to place a rail section on place that isn't covered by the Williams sight and use a QD cantilever mount of some sort to mount a scope from that rail section? The overall idea being that I get a much better sight radius than the irons on my 5.56 patrol.
20" Mossberg MVP Predator in 5.56
MDT LSS Chassis in FDE
Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40, mildot reticle
ODIN Works extended magazine release
Anderson Manufacturing mil-spec buffer tube and castle nut
Magpul MOE mil-spec stock in FDE
Yes no yes.
Yes you can have both a rail and a WGRS but not with out a little whittling on both and yes the cantilever scope mounts work for those who tend to "choke up" on the stock.
This kind of describes what needs doing
Pic isn't showing up.
Shows up fine for me.
Here's my MVP LR as purchased in June. I'm embarrassed to say I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, due to a lack of reasonable cost longer ranges near home. I'm getting desperate though, so the 75yd. indoor range 20 miles away that costs $15/day may be my first best hope.
List of stuff I've added:
Levang Linear comp
Cheapo Caldwell bipod
Cheapo Centerpoint 4-16x40 scope
(please excuse the crappy phone pic)
Stuff I still need to and will do ASAP:
CHP extended mag release
CHP trigger guard
Stuff I hope to one day do in the not-too-distant future:
24" barrel w/ threaded muzzle, fluted or not
Adjustable recoil pad
Possibly a metal mag-well
When I first became aware of the MVP models and the LR in particular, it had apparently only been available for a short time. I was hooked on the idea of an adjustable target-ish stock. With the rings that happened to already be on the scope I had laying around, it's great to be able to look right down the center of the glass with a good cheek-weld. However, as you can see, those same rings leave a lot of room under the scope's objective bell, so I'm getting some lower rings for it. Now, if those shorter rings bring the scope down far enough that I don't end up needing the adjustable comb, I'm really gonna be pissed-- coulda saved money and just gotten a nice Varmint. ;^D, Just kidding-- the look and feel of the LR stock and bolt make me smile. After cleaning it and moly-ing the bolt a little, it feeds and ejects noticeably smoother running a half-dozen .223 snap-caps through, than when it came out of the box, though it's still a little touchy as to how I work the bolt.
I'm no expert, but the trigger out of the box was one of the nicest that I've tried, and after moly-ing sear contact surfaces, it feels darn good to me, so I won't look to upgrade to a better trigger unit until the such time as that might become a limiting factor (in my case, that's not likely to ever be a limiting factor). I'm sure some range time will make things work smoother as well. I'm reeeeeally looking forward to getting this thing out on a range.
Nice looking rifle. Don't feel bad. I haven't gotten too much shooting done myself. I'm still playing catch up on the "to do" list and almost none of them are quick and easy projects.
Nice Rifle. At least you can sight in in at 75 yards. and any shootin is better than no shootin.
Thanks, guys. And Moose, you're absolutely right. I guess I just need to take a day off in the middle of the next week or two when the range might not be as crowded, pay my $15 down and at least put the LR and the also-unfired AR build on paper.
