    Installed my first drop in trigger today. An AIM surplus. Feels great. Hardest part was removing the bolt catch to get the anti rotation pins installed. I have a Geissele bolt catch and it's in the way of everything.

    Added a Hogue grip. I wanna find some FDE handguard covers and get an ACSS optic and should be set. The AIM trigger I put in it turned it into an entirely different pistol.

    Too much.
    I love aim surplus. I have one of their drop ins in one of my ARs, and a POF in the other.

    Submitted my first eform 1 on Friday and prints today. Looking for a good 12.5" AR upper that won't break my bank. Suggestions?

    So I have relatively long arms and when out shooting the AR today I realized it is a bit awkward. When trying to adjust the scope and get my face down there my earmuffs get in the way and can’t get in just right. When adjusting my position and firing it knocks the muffs back. Borrowed slimmer earmuffs from bro-in-law but after seeing photos of me shooting it today I think either the stock is too short (adjusted all the way out already) or maybe I need to raise the scope up. Any suggestions to make it a bit more comfortable? Pic below for reference.

    Lean into that rifle and put your nose to the charging handle. It'll give you a constant sight picture. Having long arms shouldn't affect shooting, I've seen all shapes and sizes shoot a 14.5" m4 in the Army. You do gotta find whats comfortable for you though, but for the vast majority leaning into the weapon getting squared up and putting your nose to the charging handle is a good place to start. I can't tell what optic you have but it looks very similar to an ACOG so getting closer to the optic should help as well. You can always use foam ear plugs I used them for most of my time in service, cheap and won't ever be in the way. I have peltors but have never had a weapon knock my ear muffs off.

    My earmuffs always hit the stock. It sucks. Try some good ear plugs.
    And maybe adjust your stance, lean forward a bit? That pic looks awkward.

    Sorry to bring this up again but I am just curious how peoples earmuff always hit the stock. Maybe I have a long head or something but I also have big ears.
