setting up the AR for varmints, what do you do?

6 posts in this topic

so my ar is altogether and sighted in, i've got boxes of shells to shoot and just enough free time to do so. beings this is my introduction to the world of black rifles i thought i'd start a thread about what little tricks others may have when it comes to fully setting up the gun. my main concern is the loudness of the gun, and by that i mean the actual handling sounds of the rifle. one thing that was really bothering me was the standard buttstock, with the heavy barrel i had a misbalance and the stock was loud beings it was hollow. so i took a garbage bag that i cut down, shoved it in there and filled it with sand. lead shot probably would have been better for weight but all i had was the sand. i made sure to tape the bag closed with some crazy sticky tape i have. that way i don't get any sand into the rest of the gun. i was hoping some others could share what they've done to keep rattles and clanks down with their black guns. thanks guys.

Leave it in the safe and grab a bolt action or a lever gun :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: ................................... :signgreatreport3kg: can't help myself sometimes

Make your self a bi pod, you can get ideas from Varmint Al's web site and go play. No difference then any other rifle, except its better

If you don't need the weight, try spray-foam also. Or spray-foam with weight dropped into it?

My set up is pretty simple. I don't have a lot of stuff hanging all over my rig. Just a good varmint scope, a bipod, and a shooting sling. When I sling up, I don't notice the front heavy balance. When I shoot off a bipod or cross sticks it doesn't matter.
