Real. Trust me if I had the $,$$$ to throw at a new AR15 I would do it yesterday. We get paid very little compared to the wider Ohio LE market. I can spend a few hundred on a gun and put a toy on it here and there but right now that's about it. As for reliability, the spring loaded firing pin will go a long way in helping with that.
Ah hell, I do understand that but I just ate a lot of Top Ramen on duty to squeeze some pennies. Same sort of boat here for pay. Thank the lord and lady for a great accountant at tax time. All those parts, ammo and related costs add up.

My issued AR with my last department was a plain jane M&P 15. Optics and light were a no-no.



Here's my personal AR that I built myself.

BCM upper
Stripped M&P lower with DD internals
Troy drop-in battle rail
Magpul furniture
Troy folding rear sight
Sling is a Magpul MS2 that I'm running as a 2 point in a slightly unconventional way.
Optic is a Primary Arms micro red dot. I've been very inpressed with this optic, especially considering the price. For my purposes its all I need.

If this rifle ever ends up as a duty weapon, I'll spring for a real Aimpoint Micro and add a light.

Barrel attached quad rail
Bipod
Folding stock

She ain't much but our office can't buy everyone a patrol rifle so we're allowed carry a wide range of guns as long as we can qualify. I got this well-used at a gun show, put in a new spring-loaded firing pin and added the small quad rail and bipod. The laser I'm waiting for is 100mw green, daytime visible. I could probly just shine it in a perp's eyes and not have to shoot him.
For anyone thinking it, the bipod isn't overkill- I've already been to one standoff where a bipod would've been super fantastic. I laid in the guy's back yard for a couple hours covering a rear window during negotiations.
Freaking epic. Is the Mosin your BUG?

If that happens I expect the policy on optics to open up some as well.

Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle
Ultimak Rail
Aimpoint CompC SM in Aimpoint QRP2 mount
Buttstock Magazine carrier with spare 20 round magazine
Sling of Unknown Origin that was on the rifle when it was issued to me
Yep, my next project is to trick out my old Mini. I figured on an Amega Ranges scout rail, a mini RDS, a small Surefire light and repalce my laminate stock for a Houge. Just to drive the AR guys nuts!

I tried to photograph the beam but it required a little more setup with the camera than I thought and sometimes I'm not patient. I may try again tonight after dark. I did shine it at some trees about 70yds away and the dot was plenty visible.

Edit for night time laser beam photo:
f/3.5
18mm
18 sec exposure
ISO-400

anybody have any experience with pelican rifle cases? i'll be keeping my Colt 6920 in the trunk and these look like pretty solid cases. Looking at 1700 vs 1720, any help appreciated!

Pelicans are some of the best cases on the market. Other options for around the same money, are Starlight, and Hardigg Storm.

I personally like the Starlight cases. They are almost freakin bullet proof, and besides Ted Nugent use one.(Probably more than one.)

I worked at a rifle shop for almost a year, and we stocked Starlight cases. The customer support was awesome.

Quick story, we had a case shipped to the shop that FedEx DROPPED OUT OF AN AIRPLANE!!!! Some of the hinges sheared off, case was beat all to hell, the latches were broken. Just in general messed up. The gun was damaged but mostly cosmetics.

Starlight was so concerned that they wanted detailed pictures of how the case failed. Top notch customer service. Best in the business, period. Had it been any other case, I am sure that the gun would have been completely destroyed. Like I said, great folks.

Starlight makes a smaller case for M4s. Should cost around $200.

Well I said that and found that they no longer make the 28" model. Sorry.

I just bought a 1720 with the pick and pluck foam. The case is heavy, but I'm fairly sure the case will outlive me. The quality and craftsmanship is damn impressive.

It's partially cut into cubes. I placed the rifle and mags where I wanted and then outlined them in toothpicks. Next I cut with a razor knife. Just realize when you're picking a case size you have to have almost 1" extra on all four sides so you have a cube of protective foam on the outer edge.

All in all took me about an hour, but turned out even better than I thought it would.

We got trained today on our rifles. Colt LE6940 with Aimpoint - don't know what model Aimpoint. I was skeptical of the optics, having never used a red dot sight and only ever having shot through a scope maybe five times in my life. I like it.

We had a number of stoppages, which mostly appeared to be due to the Colt magazines. For the time being, those are the only mags we can officially use, but approval for P-Mags should be in within 24 to 48 hours.

Good training day. I'm tired and a bit sore from all the transitions to kneeling and prone, and going nonstop for almost the whole day - short breaks, and few of them. The way a training day should be.

I still say we should have gotten HK416s or better yet, HK94s. I am a fan of the delayed roller locking bolt.

That look so right. Exactly how I envisioned my build to be...looks just right. I would like to see some groupings at 100yrds. Will not be able to get mine done till tax time. But now I know I really want it that way. Good build!

Until Uncle Sugar and the NFA fairies ship me a voided stamp telling me I can assemble it, no groupings at any yards, I'm afraid.

I know you were thinking about a longer rail but I think 7.6 is just right. I highly recommend ponying up the cash for a Noveske Diplomat barrel as well. This thing is ****ing sweet!

Didn't go thru all 7 pages but just FYI, Daniel Defense is about to roll out a interest free financing for a couple rifle packages.

Basically, an agency gets an account and a certain amount is drawn out from each paycheck and the dept. sends it to the company at one time. Rifles are shipped out a day or two after ordering.

Might be something to consider if money is tight.
I also think it is only open for patrol officers which last I checked was the backbone of any agency.
