Just a heads up for anyone looking for Vortex UH-1. There are a lot of fake ones for sale on ebay and the like. They look extremely similar. These are completely sold out at major retailers, and there was a seller who listed 10 at $400. I hope for the sake of buyers that those are genuine but I highly doubt someone can source 10 of those and sell at that price. All 10 sold within 2 days! Just be careful and I would ask for serial number when possible and check with Vortex.

Looks like optic planet has a few UH-1

If you have astigmatism look at the Holosun 510. The UH-1 (like Eitechs) will look like a blur.

Call optics planet and make sure it’s in stock. I stopped ordering from them since they pretty much drop ship everything. Everything i have ordered showed in stock but i get backordered notices. Then fight to cancel and get a refund.

PSA just did it to me yesterday with a suppressor mount. Said their industry partner doesn’t have any so my order is canceled and my refund should show up in 5 days. So on day 6 i will be disputing it. Sigh

I just ordered my Safariland holster (6360rds) from OP. Although they estimated a month wait, I received it yesterday and have already been practicing with it. I've only ordered from them a handful of times but every experience has been flawless. :

I've used a few Safarilands and they've all been great. Cant beat the prices either for a good holster.

Sure.

The outer belt is the "VTAC Combat Belt" from 5.11. https://www.511tactical.com/brokos-vtac-belt.html

Honestly I wanted the T.REX Arms "Orion" outer belt but it was out of stock and I had an approaching class I needed a belt for. The inner belt is the T.REX Arms "Orion Inner Belt." I do also use the T.REX Arms thigh strap. T.REX Arms also makes the dump pouch. https://www.trex-arms.com/store/t-rex-arms-orion/

The mag holders are G Code "Scorpion." I like these because they are universal; and stay open unlike elastic-style holders... plus I can piggyback pistol mag holders to my rifle mag holders. https://www.tacticalholsters.com/pro...-scorpion-kit/

Safariland holster and belt loop, with QLS quick disconnect.

Blue Force Gear "Micro Trauma" (Advanced version) IFAK and their "hammock" tourniquet holder https://www.blueforcegear.com/micro-trauma-kit

Small pouch by Kryptek that I use to hold a handheld flashlight.

Lastly a plastic carabiner from Magpul holds a pair of Mechanix tactical gloves.

Better picture attached.

Just got my 350 Legend upper and custom mags from Wilson Combat. Now just need to decide on a scope for deer season. Leaning towards the Vortex Strike Eagle 1x6.

Consider to buy a Glock 45, any thoughts or experiences so far?

If it feels good in your hand I have been happy with every Glock I have owned (I did not like the 21 and sold it, but that felt too big for my hands). I currently am carrying a 29 myself. The 45 is an interesting concept, trying to minimize footprint with a shorter slide but maximize the capacity with the normal frame. I also have a 19 that I really enjoy shooting. If the price is right!

The Glock 45 is basically a G19X in black instead of tan. Both guns are basically G19 slides and barrels on G17 frames.

So, if you like shorter barrels on full-size frames, and you like Glocks, then the G45 and G19X should work well for you.

I own a 19X because I like the full size frame and balance of the gun. With the G19 I can't quite get my pinky finger to get a good grip unless I use a mag pinky rest. The pinky fingers play a vital role in achieving a good grip.

I own a G17.5MOS and enjoy shooting it. If I didn't already own a APX Centurion, I'd consider a G45 or 19. I'd suggest renting one at a range and see how it feels in your hand, it's quite subjective.

My personal best, I’m calling this a sub-1 inch group. This speaks very well for the Tikka, if an infrequent shooter such as myself can produce these results.

Built a 7.5” 5.56 pistol for fun and decided to just move it to an SBR’d lower. Got my suppressor mount in so I just need to install it. Using a Sandman-K.

Not to be a legal jerk but isn't that a rifle stock on the right and make it a SBR vs a pistol? It looks like a Viper PDW stock. I don't agree with the law but SBR without a NFA stamp can be a felony in my state. Or did you already have form 1 on that build? Looks awesome.

His post says he took the 7.5" upper and put it on his "SBR'd lower", indicating that the lower has a stamp.

Badass build by the way. I bet that 7.5" upper generates some big fireballs!!

Yes. That lower was form 1’d a long time ago. I have four sbr’d ar15 lowers. Two 5.56s, one 300blk and one 6.5 Grendel.

This was the 7.5 when it was a pistol. Yes it was loud and obnoxious. I’ve got the Sandman-K on it now and will test it whenever we get some down time at work. Nice to have a range in the basement.



I actually don’t own any 16” 5.56 rifles (just sold my Tavor X95) so I will switch the flag lower over to a rifle stock and build a midlength gas 5.56.

Question for those who built their SBR. If I wanted to replace my brace for a stock on my 7.5" pistol, can I just do the NFA form at a FFL or does my pistol get turned in out of my possession until I get the stamp? I have a cqb stock I want to use but I guess that would turn my pistol into a sbr...I would hate to give it up while it's getting the approval.

Go here. E-File a form 1. Once you get your tax stamp you can throw the stock on it.
