    CVT or gear?

    Take a look at the Can-Am Defender, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    CVT or gear?

    I like the ability to seat three wide in my Polaris XP. I guess I never really consider the stability issue because mine is so stable. I used to think my tractor with four wheel drive could go allot of places but it doesn't even start to compare with the abilities of my Ranger. Plus it carries so much more.

    CVT or gear?

    From these and other friendly opinions I now accept that a belt drive is not something to shy away from, may not be what Honda with its shaft drive want me to believe, but the opinions here are too strong to ignore. So, shaft or belt is acceptable, other issues now enter into the picture. If it is a given that all major brands will have a reliable engine and suspension design I ask this..... Without personal experience I thought of sticking to a 50" wide unit just for ease of fitting onto skinny trails or busting over high desert sage, etc. But now I question the tipping stability on trails that have a sideways slant and such. Is there any thinking out there concerning the width? If I can accept the narrower frame with its obvious room limitations for trail access reasons am I giving up too much feeling of stability that a wider unit would offer when on nothing worse than poorly maintained logging roads (probably 80+% of the time)? I'm sure test drives will enter the picture soon, but again, you guys have already suffered through this decision process. I value your thoughts so I can have that knowledge walking into the dealers, ask the right questions and help cut through the brand BS a sharp salesman can throw.

    I have a 2016 Polaris 570 EPS. I love it. I take it out to the desert all the time. Drive over mesquite and rocks and sand and snakes. Never a problem. Still on the original belt. Unlike SJ, I have never had mine up to 55 mph. About 35 is as fast as I like. Good luck with your purchase Bill

    And so it began

    Very nice. I did the same thing a couple years ago, was torn between rounds, but ended up going with a 280ai. Shooting 168 VLD's, dropped 2 deer with it and a couple coyotes, nothing has take a step, all bang flop, deer was at 400 and another just under 200. Coyotes ere between 600 and 100 yards. If you havent decided on glass yet, check out the Leupold VX6, Im running the 3-18x44, does great, and very light.

    ,It was explained to me by a couple guys that know much more than I that the theory is that crush washers or heavy tightening can, not always does, but can cause a stress point on the end of the barrel. I will say that it has worked well for me using Loc-Tite.
  10. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    Right on. I was kind of wondering if having it just hand tight could cause any irregular harmonics in the barrel. I was thinking of using a thin rubber o-ring to help deaden any but maybe loc-tite would be the better way to go.

    Thanks Johnny, but yeah the blast is another reason why I didnt go that way. I've never shot a rifle with a brake but I've heard they are pretty loud. You notice any accuracy difference with and without the brake?

    I have a real nice break you can have Matt it will take all recoil out of the Ar but its loud asf that's why I took it off..

    I have yet to see a civilian use for a flash hider as well. Maybe, just maybe on an AR pistol, but even that is iffy. Oh, in case you haven't, don't forget a dab of Loc-Tite on your thread protector. I use that and just hand thread my brakes and thread protectors on. It keeps any unwanted pressure points in the barrel . I do that for all, bolt and autos.

    Backpack w/cushion

    I use the Cabela's speedy yote vest also. It is pretty comfortable but it makes moving left or right kind of a pain in the butt when I am backed into a bush. The couple times I hunted without this season sucked. Once I didn't bring it out of town because my girlfriend and I were only planning on doing a quick 2 stands and ended up hunting sunup to sundown. The other time I forgot it in the garage. Both times caused my lower back pain to flare up. I recommend it but I think they are out of stock right now.
  16. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    You are correct, Bisley. I meant to say flash hider, and said in an earlier post up above that I went with a thread protector instead of a comp or muzzlebrake (which points to the fact that thet are two options that are legal and can be used to replace the flash hider), but I had a brain fart. Still, a flash hider is not a feature that I find to be very useful and I don't want to have to explain the differences between a comp, brake and hider to a warden out in the field.

    You really need to learn the facts before making certain statements. This kind of misinformation is how so many rumors and falsehoods get spread. No wonder nobody can figure it out, with all the misinformation. Flash hiders, NOT muzzle brakes are a "feature". Brakes have NEVER, EVER been considered a "feature". The common A2 "bird cage", flash suppressors, and flash hiders are all "features. Muzzle brakes and compensators are, and always have been 100% legal. Some say it's splitting hairs, but it really is no different than saying "AR" stands for Assault Rifle, when it really stands for Armalite Rifle.

    It doesnt have as much to do with being sensitive as it does with mutual respect, Johnny. I don't like fin grips but I'm not going to just blurt out something like "Hey Johnny, you can't even grip your gun properly AND you made it ugly with that stupid fin grip". But that's just me I guess. As for the SCR, I looked at those and that would have been my very first choice but I heard a lot of bad things about the factory triggers and there are no replacement triggers for them.

    If pistol grips are ugly to you just get the scr lower.I wasn't trying to be a dick didn't realize you were so sensitive over your Ar.. Not sure if you see them but the butt stock is the same as a standard rifle and lower is different.the bolt works the same as a gas shotgun. https://fightlite.com/collections/scr-lower-receiver-assembly-kits

    But I do plan on buying some form of fixed mag too. For coyote hunting a fixed mag would be perfectly fine, and I figure that any axtra steps that a guy can take to show a warden or LEO that he's gone above and beyond could save some hassles.
  21. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    Different strokes. All AR's are ugly as far as I'm concerned and to me, functionally, a regular removable mag is a more valuable "feature" than the pistol grip, folding stock and muzzlebrake combined. I've never had a jam but if I ever do its comforting to know that I can drop my mag to quickly clear it. I had considered going with a fixed mag and almost went with the AR Compmag because with it you can drop the ammo away from the action to clear a jam but it's as long or longer than a 30 round mag and I like the little shorty 10 rounders when shooting off the bench or over the hood of my truck.

    Went featureless and loving it!

    That is not entirely true John. They have TRIED to change them. With the right part there is no need for eyesores unless wanted . All these (plus a few others ) will still be 100% legal well after July . And still shoot every bit as good. Man it was nice to have a couple Saturdays off finally!
  23. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    They sure have. How've you been, John?

    That looks good Matt. It's California that has changed the beauty contest rules.
  25. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    You made your opinion clear the first time Johnny. No need to be a dick about it. I like to be able to grip my rifle like a real gun so fins are out for me. And those fin things aren't going to win you any beauty contests either. Anyways, got my new handguard and gas block put on yesterday.
  26. Shoot-it

    Went featureless and loving it!

    That's ugly as sin Matt .mine is featureless to I run a fin on the grip and a thread protector also.Will probably change to the jt kill switch.
  27. clampdaddy

    Went featureless and loving it!

    I dont like that one. It looks too much like a thumbhole. Could have got that one cheaper (they had a blem sale) but I wanted to make it as blatantly featurelss as possible so I don't have to explain to a game warden why my gun is legal. That is also why I put a regular thread protector on the muzzle instead of a comp or muzzlebrake.
