Finally a calm day here at the house/range so I cold sighted the XCR
( now in a finished stage since I took the Phantom off the Daewoo and
screwed it onto the XCR) and the Vector AK-47.
Ammo was 855 for the XCR and Wolf 122 HP for the AK.
Both were fired prone with bi-pod.

Congrads on the fun at the range. Noticed your playing card target. If you want a good free target to print go to the N0sler website (www.nosler.com) and try their 100 Yard Varmit Target. Even has a place to record all the necessary info. Good Luck :2cents:

yeah there are tons of online targets out there, I just use playing cards cause they're uber cheap, kwick to tape a new one in place and gives everyone a sort of universal awareness of size, kinda cool too.
I'm gonna try and take some pics tommorow.

btw, the MI iron sights on the XCR gave a similar result as the AK, but I am using them differently now. Since these sights have such an oversize 100mtr aperature it makes it difficult to center the front post. Now I am setting the front hood at the bottom of the rear aperature as a sight picture and putting the target on the post. I need to grind off a bit of the post as it is bottomed out in the front sight and still printing just a bit low. Maybee next week it will all be fleshed out.
These were at a gas setting of two dots btw.

I'm bottomed out on the front MI too and am not a big fan on the rear sight either. I just mounted an EOTech on my XCR, so my next range trip should be fun. I'm hoping the EOTech will help train me how line up the MI sights better. The MI front post looks like a tree trunk next to the EOTech dot.

Here's a pic of the finished XCR 18 heavy, with the Phantom comp.
The Barska has a very long eye relief so it works out over that BUIS just fine.

Note it is the Phantom WITHOUT the snag-o-matic spikes on the front end. I had it on my Daewoo, switched it over to the XCR cause I was tired of waiting for YHM to get them back in stock ( they are and I just ordered one to replace the one I took off the Woo ). In a word it's perfect, on the Daewoo it eliminated virtually all muzzle rise, a second shot was always "right there" with no re-acquisition of target necessary. I don't think I have fired the XCR with it yet as I have been increasing my pistol stockpile with more XDs and CZs lol

XCR and XD there seems to be an unknown (x) relationship between great guns.

What bipod is that?

Do you like the foregrip/light setup?

The bi-pod is pretty great, I got it for less than $20 last year at Cheaper Than Dirt but I guess the word has spread as now it's over $20. It mounts directly to a Pic rail and comes with an adaptor that lets you mount a small ( included ) Pic rail to a normal sling stud and yes you can then use that small Pic rail for lights or LASERs when the bi-pod isn't mounted. The Bi-pod itself folds, extends and even swivels side to side just a bit, very handy. I'm not really a bi-pod guy but it's great for zeroing a scope and as you can see lends a high "cool factor" to photos.
The foregrip/light is astounding because it solves a space problem on a forend rail, it can be hard to find room for both a light and a grip. Whatever 1" light you mount in it is then switched on and off with the grip trigger, very slick idea! The grip slides on and off the Pic rail with a cross block to lock it in place and there is a nice storage area inside the grip for batteries or whatever ( I'm gonna see if a Boresnake will stuff up in there ).
