Yep.

There is some controversy concerning it's final design.

Saint's lost.

Sorta looks like you have numbers trying to rival the burros.....

Adding insult to injury..........a buddy sent me a text with a meme recently. It was a pic of a woodland camo uniform. With the words "If you ever wore this uniform it's time for your colonoscopy......."

If your M16 had a triangular hand guard, it is time for the anal borescope.

I hobbled and caned through Bud's one day last week after a followup with my surgeon in the big town. I did see an At One. Didn't pick it up, can't really lift anything yet. Ain't about to violate any restrictions. Seems the price was a little ambitious at $659-ish. Don't know what they show on the website. Judicious price comparisons might save a buck or three. Hope it's all you want it to be and more when you get it.

Slightly above freezing.
I've found it out of stock with both barrel lengths. A can on a 24" would be a bit long but vewy vewy quiet.

Ha! One of them did........second was an A2.

I'm STILL a young man..........or so I like to tell myself. However, yeah..........it's about time for that scope. There's an old post I read on another forum going into detail about it. My favorite part went along the lines of "have you ever watched a Space Shuttle launch? Well, YOU are the Space Shuttle!".

Anal borescope you say......

Edit: I found that thread I mentioned. Here it is:

Looks good.


Sitting in the kitchen at lunch time and seen these four regulars out the back door.
Looks like they made it through the first week of the season last week.
The one on the left and one on the right are this years fawns.
Had to take the picture through the door glass, they were watching me .

Both of mine had the triangular hand guard, the first one had no forward assist.
Makes me a true geezer.

Have been borescoped twice, lands and grooves were fine both times.

Warm day. Decided to go to the range.

Couldn't find the magazine for the 77/22H. The bolt is stuck open on the 597M. Wasted time on those until I gave up and went to the store for sausages and candy.

Wife's family Christmas observation is lunch on the 29th. SiL suggested an indoor range trip with pistoles. Recon I'll take her up on it.
