I got to shoot my SR25 quite a bit this summer. Lots of fun and actually not too expensive to shoot compared to my carbines as you tend to shoot slower as you try to shoot a nice, tight group.
And this rifle will certainly do it. Is it as accurate as a well tuned bolt action? In most cases, probably not but this is a sub MOA rifle all day long. And I don't care how fast you can manipulate a bolt, there is no better way to make a quicker follow up shot than with an SR25.
My rifle came with the fiberglass tube which had to go. The great people at Operation Parts hooked me up with the new SASS (URX) rail and I added my favorite BUIS, the KAC 600m. The LT SPR mount shown here didn't work out as I wanted it to so I now use KAC 30mm rings and I reinstalled the shell deflector.
The Magpul PRS and TD bipod round out the package. I just don't have the time to reload anymore but this rifle likes 168gr, usually Federal, better than 175s. It is just a blast to shoot. Two of my buddies picked up SR25s this summer (one preban...bastid
) and we have access to a nearly 600 yd range, so we had contests all the time. Too bad they can't shoot.
I wish I could get some spare parts for piece of mind. Maybe if KAC hits the civee market in full stride, it will happen. I've accrued a nice little KAC collection with one SR15m4, one SR15m5, this rifle and a killer SR25K. Can't buy anymore Colts, so I had to do something. Unfortunately, I fear that KAC will not make any ban compliant versions of their new carbines when they come out and why should they. There's only a few ban states left. I just happen to live in one.
I guess I'll have to settle for that killer new BUIS I saw that is part of the SOPMOD II package. At least I'll get a little something.
