mags RDS trigger

First RDS on the Way, Plus Additional Mags

This weekend, I decided that I wanted more than just two mag for the SAS II, so I ordered two more 16-round mags.

Since I was already ordering something from the Bul Armory USA site, I also ordered a flat trigger shoe in silver.

I have a lot more JHP ammo, as well. I went to Cabelas and bought several boxes of JHP and FMJ 9mm ammo, plus, I’d forgotten that I’d done the same thing maybe two months ago, so I’ve probably 300 rounds of a mix of FMJ and SD ammo.

Today, I ended up buying my first red dot sight (RDS). I bought the Holosun HS507K-X2 ACSS Vulcan, in red, from OpticsPlanet. I had a difficult time chosing between that an the Holosun EPS Carry, but the EPS Carry was expensive (like $400 for the MRS variant). I wanted the ACSS because I’m new to red dots and the ACSS will help with sight positioning. I can buy the EPS Carry next year. As well, the HS507K-X2 ACSS will also fit on my Canik TP9 Elite SC if I decide to go back to carrying that gun.

CZ Scorpion EVO mags Manticore Arms PGS Prepper Gun Shop

Manticore Arms CZ Scorpion EVO mags for the AK-V!

While I was waiting form my PSA AK-V to ship, I decided to order two Manticore Arms CZ Scorpion EVO mags from Prepper Gun Shop.  They were $20 each.  I didn’t want to order PSA mags because I’d forgotten to order them with the firearm and they were taking a long time to ship the gun.

These are the clear mags that are made for Prepper Gun Shop to sell.

They are very nice.  Whereas the PSA mags are 35-round, these Manticore mags hold 32 rounds.  The PSA mags have plastic feed lips that are metal-reinforced.  The Manticore mags’ feed lips are all metal.  PSA mags have a soft rubber base plate.  The Manticore mags do not.

The Manticore mag springs are stiff as hell.  It took awhile to load the mags…they were that stiff.  The PSA mag spring wasn’t anywhere near as stiff and loaded easily.  We’ll see if the CZ mags will break-in, otherwise I may have to get two PSA mags to replace them.

I also had to wear leather gloves when loading them because the metal feed lips are sharp!  I might have to take a file to them to lessen the sharpness of them.

I meant to go to the range today but ran out of time.  I’ll try again tomorrow (Sunday).
