Nothing to do? Each day you are welcome to TFB’s selection of photo highlights. If you’re lucky you might learn something on the way. Today we take a look at Schromo’s place in Germany and his Brownells BRN-180 with an A-TEC Suppressor.
It usually takes a while for a firearm to really become one of my guns.
I don‘t just slap on some parts and that‘s it – instead every part of the firearms gets examined and tested, what works can stay and what doesn‘t gets replaces with something better. So over a period of a few months (or sometimes even years) every single one of my guns undergoes several subtle change cycles until the system reaches a kind of equilibrium.
That‘s what this Brownells BRN-180s has now reached. I‘ve replaced several of its components (some of them several times) and it is now optimal tuned for my use.
The front grip is from Magpul – along with the M-LOK „rail“ covers, the pistol grip, an RSA QD sling swivel and the backup sights.
The stock is a short ACE AKFX skeleton stock by Double Star with a matching buffertube adapter (non-folding, because with a folding stock and that 10.5“ barrel length this would create an „illegal item“ here in Germany – but only in .223, .300AAC would be ok. Don‘t ask. Please. Just don‘t.).
The lower receiver ist from Aero Precision with a G2S trigger from Geissele, a Norgon ambi mag catch, a short throw safety by Strike Industries and KNS anti-walk pins. The flash hider is a new QD mounting interface for the A-FLOW suppressor from A-TEC.
The mags are made by Lancer Systems and are simply the best. And let‘s not forget the sight: my go-to choice, a Holosun HS503GU in a Geissele mount.
And if the ranges weren‘t closed because of this god-awful Corona lockdown, I could enjoy this beauty even more.
