FightLite SCR - Quick Review
« on: December 22, 2017, 02:42:52 PM »

Ok so I finally pulled the trigger on a Fightlite SCR and bought one recently.  I just took it to the range for a quick trip ... and absolutely loved it.  At 25 yards, iron sights, and shooting from a standing position it gave me a pretty good grouping. I plan on getting some optics soon, still trying to figure out what I want.

It's only 556 so there really isn't much recoil anyways but it felt like a real easy shooter, everything on the gun felt tight.  I ran a couple different magazines with it.  The 5 rounder it came with it,  2 10/20 Magpuls and 2 10/30 USGI mags.  All seemed to work without any issues. 

Figured I'd share my experience and excitement with you all in case one of you is on the fence about one like I was for waaaaay too long!

They had a sale a couple of months ago and I for one too. Took it to the range and at 25 yards it's a tack driver as it should be. I love it, it's absolutely a fantastic rifle. The bad thing is that we don't have any long range ranges down here (Stamford).

Great!  Happy for you.

They look like a very good option here in this commie state.  I would like to get one eventually.

Such a cool rifle. I hope they keep it in production for a long time. Been eyeing those new ones on their website with free float rails.

Nice to hear, but I’m still salty on FightLite with how they handled the switchover from Ares. Letting the stock deplete, and then jacking up the price on an essentially unchanged weapon. From what I see they still make a person have to buy the BHO and iron sights separately.

Gonna stick with my Mini 14 until I can pick up one of these AR style AOW’s that are all the rage. Thank you ATF arm brace ruling!!

The AOW AR's look very cool, the one attached I saw on the gun store llc's Facebook that's all CT legal and looks great. These things actually seem very nice regardless of the state.

I wonder if they're legal in all 50 states. Although it's probably best to keep them on the DL so the Dems don't go after them.

The reason the whole "other" thing works is the wording of CT law. Who knows how the laws in other states are written. :dunno:
Politicians, like diapers, should be changed frequently and for the same reasons.

Looks good!  I can't tell in the picture but are the irons canted or is that a see through scope base?
