   The AR is a pre ban Essential Arms heavy barrel with a trigger kit that has been loved -up and is a shooting fool.Makes quick work of "rat pack" type varmint shooting.....hehehe!

Very nice, which is your favorite bolt gun? I like the savage 10.

Thanks to everyone for the nice compliments! My fave is the 308 Savage,luv the trigger,scope clarity and the accuracy is just stupid....if I do my part it'll hit anything I can eyeball out to at least 400 yds ( though I admit to being NOT as good as the gun, but working on it).Savage has come a long way and with the accu trigger it's just a nice piece of equipment. Also have to say that although I agonized over scope choices I'm glad I mounted up the Zeiss....no substitute for good glass and you DO get what you pay for.At this time I have a total of 3 Zeiss equipped rifles and that will go up as I add to the collection.....

The accutrigger is very nice. Savage is a great company that offers alot for a little.

Savage has really got it going on.

 

Uncanny accuracy as always, but the quality look and feel of Savage rifles has gotten better as well.

Good work, add a 30 rd magazine to the AR ,and no critter will escape  

 

I like the stock on the ruger, its less plain than the pepper and coffee stocks but not a big rainbow either

I know this is an old post, but what scope is that on the AR?  Burris sig select?  How do you like it for that application? 


Posted By: exhogflyer

   Yes, it's the sig select with the lit reticle. LUV it for what I use it for ( dim light varmint/ coyote hunting, sometimes at night). Really clear optics, holds zero nicely, and even though it's low magnification I have still wacked some out to 300 yds. I would have gone with a bigger scope but being that it's not a flattop doesn't make sense

Hey hogflyer,

Who'd you use to drive for?  Any Guard time?

Great looking set of guns. I have the same scope ready to go on my Savage 12BVSS. Which bases and ring are you using. I started to use Leupold bases but I don't like the way the rear base looks.

   Thanks for all the compliments guys! Trickplay: I was with the 353rd for most of my career but not Guard, was regular Air Force.Savageshooter: the rings and bases on the Savage are Burris, I too did not care for the Leupold setup, and had trouble getting them to sit level on the reciever ( BOY is that a story in itself!).

I just picked up an Essential Arms AR, any reports on yours? Love all the pics!

A great rifle is only as good as the scope on it!

VERY NICE!!!

 

I'm also a big fan of the Savages.  I've yet to shoot one that wasn't a tack driver and the AccuTrigger is the best factory trigger in existance, IMHO.
