Finally got the time to sit down and mount the scope yesterday. Not exactly a calling gun as it weighs a TON! There has been nicer looking AR's in this forum, but this one is mines :)I didn't like the post ban eagle upper that came with the rifle. It also came with a carry handle so mounting high powered optics was out of the question without raising the comb of the stock. So I sold my upper and ordered the new DPMS upper.Registered Eagle Lower as an SB-23 AW rifle.Complete DPMS 24" upper - thanks to Mark for pointing out this great deal. It was basically $350 shipped.SWFA Super Sniper 16X42 30mm scope - group buy that included a bunch of free accessories and shipping.Burris Xtreme Picatinny scope ringsPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImageNow like most of us with new toys, I'm waiting for some decent weather to sight it in.

Pre ban Eagle Arms lower....I registered it as an AW when called upon to do so back in the 90's, thus the empty mag well.

If you dont mind my asking, where did you get the upper? My buddy is looking for one.

So you're one of the lucky ones who gets to have a "real" little black rifle!

The upper was from Midway that I ordered back in February, I think? It was on sale for $380 shipped. I need a tac latch now because its hard to reach the charging handle underneath the scope....Luckily, I did buy an AR back in the days. I wish I would have been smart enough to squirrel away a few more recievers :rolleyes:

A lot of people are saying that very thing. Fortunately for me my wife retires fro the Navy in about 5 years , and after she does we will be returning to MO where I can own an AR type rifle. Maybe someone will challenge the constitutionality of these CA gun laws and get these laws over turned in the mean time? :rolleyes: Yea RIGHT !!!!

Well, I did jump on the band wagon and purchased a couple "off-list" lowers that are sitting in my safe stripped and locked up (yes, even though they are stripped). The future of these lowers are still blurry. I'll only build those if they get "listed". If they don't get listed and some type of legislature is brought up that says these current "off-list" lowers have to be pinned forever, those lowers will just stay stripped... :rolleyes:

Actually, there is a provision in the statute that allows for new residents and military personel to bring their 'assault' weapons into the state. Here's a snippet as relates to incoming residents:(2) A person moving into this state, otherwise in lawful possession of an assault weapon, shall do one of the following: (A ) Prior to bringing the assault weapon into this state, that person shall first obtain a permit from the Department of Justice in the same manner as specified in Article 3 (commencing with Section 12230) of Chapter 2. (B ) The person shall cause the assault weapon to be delivered to a licensed gun dealer, as defined in subdivision © of Section 12290, in this state in accordance with Chapter 44 (commencing with Section 921) of Title 18 of the United States Code and the regulations issued pursuant thereto. If the person obtains a permit from the Department of Justice in the same manner as specified in Article 3 (commencing with Section 12230) of Chapter 2, the dealer shall redeliver that assault weapon to the person. If the licensed gun dealer, as defined in subdivision © of Section 12290, is prohibited from delivering the assault weapon to a person pursuant to this paragraph, the dealer shall possess or dispose of the assault weapon as allowed by this chapter. I have heard of a couple of people pursuing this successfully....Check over at AR15.com in the hometown California forum for more... //Ben

Ben,That is SUPERB information, thank you. I just posted a question on AR15.com about this ... apparently they are purging all posts older than 30 days?

Yes, unless you are a 'member' over there, searches are limited to the last 30days....Still, as I recall, Paul the forum moderator there was one of those who managed to bring his ARs in when he came here with the Navy. Maybe he'll respond when he sees your post.I'll email you another contact how might be able to help... //Ben
