    could also try some smaller grips. although ultimately it sounds like the gun doesn't fit your hand.

    and a S&W 642

    I got some tips on the 642 after wearing it for over a year
    first, grips : get a better set for this lil shooter. I put hogue mono-grip on a must for +P and love it but any grip that covers the back strap and lets you use a speed loader EZer would work just as good .
    next finish : the paint or whatever S&W uses on the 642 can flake off ..you can cerakote it but I polished mine It is perty now if you do polish yours black out the rear sight
    and rounds : I pack hornady crit def non +P in this j frame I like them cause of the lighter recoil and less muzzle flash
    to finish carry : a gat this light you don't carry, you wear it I like a pocket holster but I could see hip carry and it disappearing just as ez

    The groups on my primary AR are starting to get really horrible. After 10 years and who knows how much ammo I think the barrel is getting worn out.

    So ordered up replacment springs since it's due for new springs anyway, new lightweight freefloat handguard, and a 16inch mid length pencil profile Faxon barrel to do an overhaul on it.

    I ordered an A1 3 prong flash hider for s and giggles. Mix a little old and new.

    Heres what I'm overhauling a bit.

    14.5 in M4 profile barrel with carbine gas system

    Phantom flash hider pinned

    Standard front sight post that was cut down and smoothed out into a low profile gas block. I wanted to keep the bayonet lug.

    Tlr-1 weapon light

    Old (heavy) GG&G free float forearm with most of the rails pulled off of it.

    Weaver V3 (1-3x) low power variable in QD mount. I picked this because its half the weight of nearly any other 1-4 variable out there.

    MAGPUL pop up sights.

    MOE grip and stock.

    What I'm replacing

    Full spring replacement, it's due for one anyway

    Barrel with a 16 inch pencil profile midlength gas system a topped with an old school 3 prong flash hider.

    Forearm with a more modern and much lighter MLOCK foreend.

    Might replace TLR1 with a Streamlight HL-X.

    MOE grip with a Magpul K2 grip. Both of my wrists have been broken in the past and the straighter angle of the K2 is far more comfortable.



    I used to have a pile of ARs on various configurations. This AR which was my first one after I moved away from home has outlived all.of them so far. I've cut down to one AR per adult in the house I built my wife a basic rifle right after we got married. I figured a pile ammo was better than a pile of guns I never shoot.

    Theres still a few I want to build just because. An A2 and A4 clone because those are what I was issued and an A1 clone because I really like how simple and light those A1s are.

    Minor overhaul done. Still need to order a 45 degree rail section for the light.

    That looks like a nice refurb of what looked like a pretty nice rifle to start with

    Took the overhauled rifle out today to zero it and get some initial rounds down the tube. Groups are back to normal again. Looking like it's going to be a 2 or 3 moa barrel easily even with steel cased ammo. Good enough for me and any range I'll be shooting around here. I'm thrilled with how much lighter it handles and points compared to it's old configuration.
