Hello, you have a very nice collection of firearms.

Although I've noticed you have not featured any AK-type rifles. I'm only curious if you've tried shooting AK's before, or do they not particularly interest you? Thanks and stay safe.


Daniel - I just haven't had the opportunity to shoot an AK yet. I hope to eventually :)

Thanks for putting together the list, I now what what forend you have on the 15-22, I just purchased my first rifle and I like that style.

Rog said...

You do an awesome job, I love your vids.
My OCD kicked in when I noticed that on your parts list for Sprinkles, you listed your optic as the "Micro T-1 (4 MOA)" when 50 seconds into your 2012 Sprinkles update video, the optic is stamped "Aimpoint Micro T-1 2 MOA". Is that a different sight than what you are using or a just a simple mistake?
Sorry, it's petty thing. It's just that, now, I can't un-see it.
...But great job on everything. Stay awesome. =)
