Throw a pistol light up there. X300 works better because it has the push activation but a tlr would be fine if that's what ya got

Wanted to show my new light on my duty rifle-

Cop Talk
Believe it or not, I got it at Wal-Mart for less than forty bucks AND it has strobe feature and lithium battery included. So far its held up great. The only problem it has, and its a biggie, is the switch is very awkward to activate for any right handed shooter.

This is probably the appropriate time to say that the toys I posted on the previous page have all been lost in an unfortunate boating accident.

Oh well, whaddya gonna do?

The reality is that officers needing a patrol rifle and magazines had best do it sooner than later. I fully expect any new legislation will not exempt us as it did in 1994.

This is probably true. For those that don't know, DSG Arms sells ten packs of P-Mags for $100 and ten packs of their bomber GI mags for $90. Both are out of stock right now but they're a great deal when they've got them.

I stopped by Rainier Arms on Friday to pick up a batch of PMags for officers at my PD. They just got in a gross of them this last week.

They are sold out again as of right now.

Someone posted on the local car forum that between Friday night and monday morning (he didn't post the link) he read on an e-zine that ~75,000 Pmags were sold.

No pmags (or any other kind) at my local Big R last night. I am glad I bought one Saturday. I did pick up the last remaining dog-eared package containing a genuine Ruger mini 14 20-rd mag.

An alternative to an AR ...

Talk about the M1A the other day made me remember I never added pics of that rifle to this thread!

So here we are. Springfield M1A Scout Squad in American Walnut. It came with some sort of muzzle brake/compensator thing, which went away after the first trip out. An 18 inch .308 is loud. Really loud. That brake on there made it uncomfortably loud for me, and downright punishing if fired anyplace but the open. By a barricade, berm, etc it rattled teeth. That, and everyone HATES being next to it when it goes off. It has a National Match (no bayo lug) M14 hider on it now, and its better. Still loud, but not punishing loud, and you can see at night after firing it. Makes the cool M14 ping noise too.

Other than the flash hider swap, I have put on an aftermarket Sadlak magazine release so its a little easier to manipulate, and a Smith Enterprises bolt stop, which is easier to use with gloves or under stress. I use a USGI sling. An Aimpoint micro on a factory low mount works great on the rail. I don't have the cash for one right now, and the one I do have is on a Larue tall mount atop my 6720.

It's big (40 inches), heavy (9lbs) and all American. We use Federal 168 grain Sierra match in .308 as our duty round, which works well. M14/M1A is pretty popular with my agency, in particular in the rural areas. We are blessed in the sense we can have two approved duty rifles. I have the 6720, and the M1A Scout. I chose the scout because its easier to maneuver and a hair lighter. I personally think the 18 inch barrel looks better.

Cop Talk

At the bottom here is the M14 I had issued to me for years. It was a brand new H&R M14 in a birch stock. When it first got issued, it had the selector switch installed. It was fun, but HARD to control in full auto. All the full auto guns (M14 and M16) we have are now semi only. If you have the switch, its not hard to put back in though. I loved "blondie." I shot several service rifle matches with her, and did fairly well. She went to a coworker who did not have a rifle. I missed a .308 so much I got an M1A later.

Cop Talk

They don't have that video game cool factor, or the same "go fast ability of an AR type gun, but they do have a lot of character and charm that an AR will never have.

Anyone else carry a .308 at work?

Those are just awesome, CW!

Our CO's (conservation officers) have M1A's for their long guns. Makes sense in the rural world and when working around game, I suppose. For a while (before I was on the road), we had the option of carrying Mini-14's in addition to the 12ga, but a Mini-14 is most definitely NOT an M1A!

We had the minis when I worked for state DOC; frankly, I hated the things.

Love the Scout version of the M1A. What was the Scout version the put a folding stock and quad-rail on? That one was excellent too, but a little heavier than a "clean" Scout version.

Here's my issued Colt Canada C8A2 with 14.5" barrel. They originally gave me a Surefire Scout M600C and a cheap 3 point sling.

Since then I have purchased and added a 5.11 VTAC padded 3 point sling, a rail for the handguard, Magpul RVG, and Redi-Mag.

A couple months ago our Firearms Training Team NCO surprised us with Aimpoint Micro T-1's with Troy Industries BUIS.

Next in the works is Integrated Universal Receivers made by Colt Canada. Not sure what barrel length we are going with.

It's pretty nice. It did a hair under 1MOA with 6 rounds of the Federal Gold Match duty ammo at 100 yards off a nice rest.

Not sure what the brand of rest was, but it was rock solid and pretty much removed me from the equation. Some guy into precision rifles had it when I was practicing and offered to let me see what the rifle would do. I have got 1 inch groups with 3 rounds before, but never 6 before. That was cool.

Tell you what though. I love how .30 cal has been turning cover into concealment since 1906! It's a great open country and barrier defeating piece.

This summer I'm going to see if they will let me into a match or two with it so I can see how well I do with the shorter barrel and sight radius.
