    Enough postage to cover shipping and $1100 of insurance to send five F1 cans to ECCO Machine to get some work done. :D

    If you mean in the ARF silencer thread, yea. They look like works of art.

    Sig Romeo5 for the 9mm AR. At $99+shipping, I couldn't say no. Also, two white P320 grip modules: an XCarry and X5. 24.99/ea +shipping? Couldn't pass that up either.

    On order, reloading dies for 224 Valkyrie - a Forster micrometer seating die, and a Redding Type S bushing sizing die. Also, the Redding competition shellholders and a Lyman headspace case gauge.

    Ever buy something that’s exactly as it’s described...but you’re still a little surprised when you open the package? I’ve never used a linear comp, and I guess when briefly looking around I never looked for pics of one mounted. In my head (even though the description said ~.9”x1.5”) I’m thinking something similar to the flash can that came on my 9mm upper recently or the blast shield I have for YHM QD devices. But here’s what I get, compared to the aforementioned flash can:

    58E37660-D173-4ED1-BAE3-F755124A0ED5.jpeg

    Looking at it from each end:

    3DC1D4E9-C282-46F8-BB84-616686E8E711.jpeg

    And then mounted on an AR57 barrel I have loose:

    D9A897A7-274F-4877-B2E3-4AE2E803B291.jpeg

    The comp is going on the AR pistol I’m redoing.

    A couple hundred rounds of Federal fmj and this Reload Wrap to carry my P365 spare mag. I really like it so far.

    Thinking about it. The one I use for my VTAC, I'll have to be picky with color since not everything goes with tan.

    An Apache 3800 off Amazon for $24. Sure, it's not a Pelican, but for something that is going to be a glorified range suitcase and maybe get a little wet from a rain shower, it's not bad. No plans to submerge it for a week lol.
    Plastic seems thick and sturdy enough, latches snap into place with authority, seal looks good. I think it'll do fine for its intended use.
    Got it configured to hold my Optimus, Rev 9, and associated parts and accessories with room left for my next supressor purchase (dedicated 22lr can) to fit, too.

    Just place other for a 16 inch carbine upper chambered in 458 SOCOM. Now I'll have to take out a loan for a few boxes of ammo.. It definitely won't be a range gun .Not at $1.25 per round. Anyone know where ammo can be purchased cheaper? :eek:
