Gun is due in any day. It's a factory FA (Springfield Armory) made in December of 1972.

I'll post when it comes in. BTW, using the new eForm for this gun.

Yes. I just submitted my eForm request through Silencer Shop. We'll see how long it takes now for me to get the stamp.

Funny you should ask. The Staff at the range was very cooperative (I go there all the time) and since I let them shoot a mag, there were no issues with the RSO. 

 

So how did it shoot? Wonderful. Had to really work hard to keep it on target (as expected) but after a mag or two I got the hang of it. I have a GI bipod and that may be the trick to FA fire. Otherwise, I promise you this thing will clear a room, as bullets go everywhere!

lol bypod is the best way to shoot it. The e2 stock helps as well if you get the new made one know there is a quite a bit of fitting.

Unit is due back from Andrewski today or tomorrow. I had him run a full function and safety check on the gun. Well worth the cost considering the investment. Probably get ATF stamp just as the gun arrives....
