KF,
I see with those new eyes you are going with just the gun sights for now.

It will be interesting to see how that 2 position gas block works in suppressor mode.

Is it still configured for lefthand eject too? If so that would be a good handicap for you so the rest of us might catch up with you. 🤣

Sighting in new Vortex 1x8 Strike Eagle:
- 25 yards indoor ( i wanted to be 1” to 1.5” low for 100 yrds.
Walked in for 25 yards after some 15 yrd to hit paper
- round 1 hit low left 7 o clock
- round 2 hit almost center on right about 3oclock
- adjusted scope and round 3 hit 6oclock center 1.5” low
- rounds 4-8 all in same hole as round 3

I’d say we are good👍

Rifle was an excellent shooter and fantasic bullpup. Trigger sucks worse than AUG, but otherwise excellent.
Ran suppressed out of the box flawless with the built in gas regulator. 🕺🕺🕺🕺😎😎😎😎👏👏👏👏

Ambi charging handle is outstanding

Hoping sunday to go outdoor and tun it thru the paces

Sort of like a good nitroed micro-brew with a tomato juice chaser? o_O

If I was going to get another bullpup it would be a Desert Tech MDRX in 6.5 CM, with a spare .308 barrel.

Handled one Saturday at the LGS.
$2200 for the 5.56
Pretty slick ride.
If I didnt have a Hellion and Aug, i probably would have snatched it up
 
Just not an AK fan.
Have shot some really nice pre ban and others. Just not my thing.
It was my fathers, whom I have many fond memories of shooting with him as a kid but he basically ignored my family and his grandkids for last 10 years or so.

My oldest doesn’t like the feel of it( and is left handed) and the stock is too small for myself and my wife.

It’s just really tempting to get a more modern platform that has more flexibility and all of us can use more easily.

Sorry to see something from your father go, but maybe sell it locally and buy something that suits everyones needs

I don’t think your son will be a fan of the Hellion, either—or you’ll have to switch it to left ejection for him.

Hellion is a no tools , less than 5 min switch to left ejection. Was a breeze.

I actually switched it to right ejection for a friend on the lane and back to me for the left.

Best design on a rifle yet for us lefties

That’s one of the biggest appeals to me about it. Our shooting family is a bit odd

I’m right handed, right eye dominate
My oldest son is left handed, left eye dominate
My wife is left hand, right eye dominate so really no clue how well she could use it
My youngest may never be able to use a firearm ( Cortical vision impairment) but he’s 4 so plenty of time to figure that out.

So it’s possibly a very versatile rifle that all of us ( except youngest) can use.
