It was a closed course with about a dozen students, which included federal agents, local tactical officers and Air Force TACP specialists . The course focuses on improving carbine and pistol skills for Close Quarters Battle (CQB). Close quarters is the most difficult environment to work in, according to RB1’s Director of...

Jason, thanks a lot for taking the time to answer so thoroughly. I really appreciate it. Just a doubt. Which ready position with pistol and rifle do you use if you are not the number one in the stack? high port? SUL? I wish I could attend training there. Thanks for your help.

You have a couple different options. You can either go with an LR308 or AR-10 pattern buffer system. I'll outline the differences below: LR308: -AR-15 collapsible stock receiver extension. -Short LR308 buffer. -LR308 carbine action spring. AR-10: -AR-10 or VLTOR A5 collapsible stock receiver extension. -AR-15 collapsible stock buffer. -AR-10 action spring. Unless you really need the shortest position/LOP on an AR-15 receiver extension, I'd go with the AR-10 pattern parts. The OBR rifles that...

Re: AAR Redback One’s Advanced Weapons Manipulation, King County, Wash. 11-12 July 2014

Bug Stomper ·
Good question, FireGuy ! The big pro to a front-mounted dump pouch is that you don't reach out of your way -- to your side or all the way behind you -- to ditch your magazine. Instead your hand goes pretty much where it's going anyway, i.e., your front-mounted magazine pouches. In the case of a tactical reload, it's a bit faster than reorienting the partial magazine and replacing it in the far magazine pouch. It took precious extra time to execute that maneuver during the drill mentioned...

In response to a private message from a friend who couldn't access a hyperlink above, the shoulder bump is a method of bilateral carbine shooting in which neither the weapon nor support hand leaves the gun. Rather, the shooter just bumps the stock from one shoulder to the other. Pro: It's fast, simple and your hands never leave fire control. Con: It's not very stable for long range engagements or shooting on the move. Plus I always have to switch my selector to fire when I initiated a...

As plasman said, the factory OBR is AR10 style. I would NOT fuck with that combination. As for the spring and buffer you should just ask larue what they use. Larue stakes their buffer tube lock plates FYI, if you are wanting it to be full on original like.

ColtKid , I have the original OBR 7.62 from years back (the first customer deliver 18", actually) . Initially I ordered it with the CTR and riser (there is a review in here somewhere) and then changed to PRS. I vaguely remember an issue with the buffer wt and spring back then but it was quickly sorted out by the LT crew. Given that, I'd take vectorsc's advice and call CS @ LT. They may not assemble it for you but they WILL get you on the right track. I just pulled mine out of the safe and...

Buffer on my 16" was a standard H2. As others have said, I'm willing to bet that they'll get you the standard equipment if you call them. Whether or not that combination will work perfectly is an entirely different matter.

Following this intently. I haven't taken mine out of the box yet, but I'm also torn between the PRS option and this conversion. Let us know how you make out. They put out a statement via Facebook that they plan to be caught up with their backlog by the end of the year. If they are not willing to help you now, at that point, they are not going to have much of an excuse.

And just FYI, they do sell the materials needed to do things the other way around. http://www.laruetactical.com/762-adapter-kit If they told you "we no longer build custom rifles," you got a horeshit answer. You're simply asking to buy a factory part. Like nearly all companies, they have their share of less than helpful employees. As FastSS has noted, give them a call back. Tell them that you are calling because you would like to buy some factory replacement parts--see where that gets you.

I have a few questions. When do you put empty mags in the dump pouch? during a fast reload? don't you throw empty mags to the ground? do you have spare loose ammo with you to fill empty mags later? I guess empty mags are useless unless you prevail, so if you are there after the engagement (i.e. you are winning the fight) and you have the chance you will pick up empty mags from the ground to return them to Logistics guys or to fill them if you have spare ammo (maybe a chance if you have a...

Re ready positions, do you use just high ready or there is a time for low ready and a time for high ready? do you use the same with pistol than with rifle? What about high port, full sabrina, or whatever you want to call it to having muzzle up with rifle or handgun almost vertical? Just asking because some guys use that here when in the stack if you are not the leading guy.

generally speaking there is enough time during land warfare or urban operations to take cover and stow an empty into your dump pouch. This is normally because you would be attacking the enemy with a numerically superior force and you weapon may only represent a small percentage of the overall firepower of the force element. I have on several occasions carried loose ammunition in zip lock bags in my go-bag/ assault pack in case we got caught on an objective longer than anticipated and...

Great AAR on LMS and RB1. Thank you. In LMS you used PWS, but in RB1 you used a suppressed LWRC. Why the change? I'm asking because I use a suppressed PWS Mod 1 and love the weight and long stroke design. Lately I've been looking at LWRC because it has the ambi controls and an easier to quickly adjust gas block which I see as a plus with QD suppressors. Thoughts?

You're welcome, Bluemonday . And thank you for choosing my topic for your first reply on Lightfighter! You guessed my answer, bro. I loved my PWS, but I primarily shoot carbines left-handed. So shooting with my quick-detach Surefire MINI suppressor -- but without an adjustable gas bock -- choked me out. Seriously. Within a round or two. There is no such trouble with the proper setting on my LWRC IC-Enhanced . None of the M4 carbines that SOCOM ever issued me were ambidextrous, so I was...

Thanks, Bill. You make a lot of good points too. Again, I don't plan on changing the way I do tactical reloads either. The dump pouch under the front magazine pouches just keeps another door open. The Operator Readiness Test does indeed cover a lot of bases. My only beef with it is that you've got to rush your pistol back to the holster. No matter how anyone feels about searching and assessing, I couldn't bring myself to race to the holster -- and I can live with the time penalty. Instead,...

Postion of the dump pouch. The dump pouch is not primarily used during the sequence of performing a tactical reload. It can be used but when time permits, the partial magazine should be placed back...
