    Default GI JOES AR 57 heeheehee.......lol....

    Hey Gunny,
    I think this is the only model they make right now other than the upper with the fluted barrel. But Yup I did take some liberties with the ATN sight and the tactical fore grip and green laser. So GI JOE IT IS....(I Like That!)..lol.
    To tell you the truth I put the foregrip on there because the picatinny upper did not come with any rubber rail covers, and the green laser well that is just for fun....Wait till I get the BUIS sights I got in our classified section, at least then I will have some iron sights...lol.

    I have to tell you though in all honesty at the range the other day with the ATN holo-sight I was repeatedly shooting 1 to 1 1/2 inch at 25 yards in 5 shot strings dead center of the 10 ring. At 50 yards I was sure that the groupings would open up, man was I wrong, they stayed just as tight and some were a little smaller.(I will post pictures of the range and targets tomorrow), I attribute this to the almost impreceptable recoil impulse that this round produces.

    The manufacturer claims that this rifle runs very cool, as compared to the AR15 impinged gas system, and they were not kidding, the rifle stayed very cool which also helps with accuracy, and the amount of cleaning that I had to do after 200 rounds was minimal. I think it took me all of 5 minutes to field strip it and clean the entire upper.

    The fit and finnish is superior! The Phosphate finish is excellent and the color matches all my Mil-spec lowers. Utimatley this upper will be going on a DPMS lower with a six posistion Pardus stock, which should be here on Friday of this week. I will post some more pictures once I get this GI Joe rifle set up in its finnal configuration.
    Thanks,

    Have you shot it yet?
    Check the magazine feed lips after firing to see if there is any scraping or hitting the mag.
    What does thereplacement buffer look like?

    Hey Gunny,
    Yes I shot it, I put 200 rounds of the Hornady 40 grn down range. I did not notice any damage to the magazine, however I have been told by a few people to be carful with these magazines as they don't take kindly to being dropped, (but then again who or what does?). As to the buffer, it looks like an all steel version of a short CAR buffer. It is really heavy for its size. You are going to have some fun with this rifle. Drop me a line when yours comes in and we can compare notes.

    Will do.
    I have a PS 90 the mags are a little more rugged than rumors say.
    I was concerned with the bolt alignment were it strips rounds from the lips of the mag.
    Guess there are no worries. Thanks for the feed back
