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.
