Test AR15 à 300m aujourd’hui. C’est assez cool d’être dans un stand “classique” avec ce genre de flingue sans avoir de remarques débiles genre c’est pas homologué…
I really don’t like the AR15, and I hate to see it has become the golden standard of small caliber semi-automatic rifles, thanks to thirty years of Hollywood propaganda (what I call the “MP5 effect” : “if it’s good enough for McClane, it’s good enough for me”, but I digress), but it’s really nice to see some diversity in an official shooting range.
Next step, an AK-74 ? It’s almost like a SIG 550, aside its tinier cartridge and its cruder finish ;o)
SIG-Sauer 522 (.22 LR). Not the best SIG-Sauer branded gun I ever had in my hands, to stay euphemistic. Bought by a friend as a complement to his military StG/F ass 90. This is an early production model, I think, with a lot of digestive troubles and a poor reliability even with quality ammunition (maybe involving the feeding ramp). I don’t like rails since I’m not a train, and I would have prefered standard military iron sights instead of the option of putting a quality optic worth twice the price of the gun itself. All in all, they should have taken a Ruger 10/22 mechanism and encapsuled it in a SIG 550 shell instead of this mediocre carbine. Good trigger, though.

It’s long and boring, but both carbines are cool. #m1 #mini14
