Default My new rig

Been selling a couple of my other ARs to afford this one.
I didnt want to post it until it was complete (took a couple of months).

Every single part on this gun is high-end except the angled sights and the Bipod (UTG).
Most of this I bought as a package unfired used.

- Seekings Precsion Billet Lower
- Vltor Mur 1D Upper
- Geissele Rail
- Noveske barrel (Ceracoted)
- There is an upgraded trigger group that "holds" a set , but I am not sure what brand it was.
- hardchromed BCG/bolt
- The Scope I got is Nikon 3-9x40 Prostaff in Real Tree Camo (Since the gun came hydrodipped camoed I made sure the scope was too)
Zeroed it yesterday but my scope mount screws came loose from it so I nee dot rezero (are we supposed to use locktite on those? I screwed 'em down hard now.

Sweet rifle and I usually don't but you certainly can use loctite. My LaRue mount came with loctite already on the threads.

I know very little about scopes..

But recently I got some input to use locktite on all screws.

So should I take the ring screws apart and redo them with locktite?
Hate to take it all apart and rescrew it I am sure those screws can be tightened down only so and so often?

Nice, you go through ARs like I go through underwear....not that there's anything wrong with that.

I hope the angled sights setup will be practical for close engagements

Ok I got it.. yes the off set sights I have yet to use.

I will practice some with them.
I will probably run a complete combat rifle class just on offsites to get proficient at them
