Ruger 10 22 Folding Stock Review

The current version of Ruger 10/22 has auto-loading of rim fire rifle. It was designed to suit the places where other rifles cannot. More so that the barrel slides off the receiver and the major limitation factor is how small your can make Ruger 10 22 become the National Firearms Act and the mandatory 16+ inch barrel. However, for the people that prefer different stock or those that are looking for how to go to SBR route with their rifles, then Ruger 10 22 folding stock for the rifle is highly preferable.

In the first place, when I got Ruger 10 22 stock in my mail, the instructions looked so short but they were excessively verbose. Breeze has replaced the factory stock and this breeze is pulled with a screw out and the whole receiver which is assembled becomes free. As soon as the Ruger 10/22 folding stock is in place, you will discover that it functions just like a folding skeletonised AK stock. It has a large hinge on one of its sides with a huge latch at the other side. This design has been tried and tested and offer you a strong feeling stock without bulk.

Ruger 10/22 folding stock integrates seamlessly with the present forend and suits the colour and texture. Even though it is not exact but it is similar. Really, a little darker colour it is. The entire design of Ruger 10/22 folding stock seems to have been influenced by the Magpul school of tactical awesomeness and the features is very clean merely looking at the outer part with various attachment points for fast detach sling mounts. Ruger 10/22 folding stock comes with one QD cup adapter but it could be either to move the cup to your choice spot or to get more and fix them by yourself.

Meanwhile, it is very important to search how good Ruger 10/22 stock is. I gave the gun to a couple who are novice and out of all the guns I brought from my range trip which include AK, SCAR, 300 BLK AR-15, the couple like one of them. I also agreed that the pistol grip didn’t add any little additional comfort whenever one is firing a gun. But with my big hands, I have a little problem in gripping rifle. It seems as if the grip was just too small to touch and do cramp my hand. I do chalk it up to the chunky latch mechanism which is eating into the available space for the hand grip. This is not strenuous but a little bit annoying. But the gun functions just fine when firing with Ruger 10 22 stock closed.

In conclusion, Ruger 10/22 folding stock do increases the whole length of the rifle but the barrel is considered to be the largest part. This is the reason why it could be sensible to turn it into an SBR. The barrel can be reduced in the front band and then add some threading for a silencer.

A Zombie Weapon Sight: EOTech XPS2-Z

Interesting news are popping out these days because of the popularity of various “Zombie” things games, apps, movies, and a lot more. Even in the malls, in the shirts of different individuals, and more and more interesting things ruled perfectly by the zombie mania. Thus, with this noticeable gesture, more companies try to have a little “zombie thing” to their products just to be with the trend and for the not so famous products be noticed. Moreover, this may be used by the companies to signify a relation between the qualities products do possess, with the qualities a zombie do exhibit.

EOTech, a company known for manufacturing various holographic weapon sights, is one of the companies who want to have a little part in the market trend. Thus, they manufactured the latest product which is named after the ever famous zombies. It is the L-3 EOTech XPS2-Z “Zombie Stopper”.

L-3 EOTech XPS2-Z “Zombie Stopper”
This Zombie stopper has a combination of the best weapon sight features an operator wanted to have as well as expects. It takes a pounding, holds zero, produces a highly visible, clear, and the cleanest target acquisition and can be relied on even for a couple of days. As visible as what the product’s name says, the EOTech XPS2-Z “Zombie Stopper” works like a zombie through what they call “zombie gear”, which is way tougher. Perhaps, this is what makes it a little different added with flair, from the previous version of EOTech XPS, which is XPS2-0.

This EOTech XPS2-Z has a cool reticle manufactured in a biohazard symbol to add a fashionable appearance, yet it is still able to incorporate the 65MOA circle and the 1 MOA dot. This will enable the users of the previous products of EOTech weapon sights to use this zombie stopper easily since it is near consistent in function with the previous XPS’.

On the physical appearance of this XPS, a tough, rugged metal shroud could still be seen for the protection of the optical glass window and the laser which is set apart from the rest through its etched graphics. A biohazard symbol on top of the product and a skull having engraved with “zombie stopper” on the left side, is a feature that a user could obviously observe by just looking at the product alone. The battery used for this sight is still CR123, which can survive for 600 hours set at maximum brightness. Moreover, the battery cap used is still a simple O-ring, tethered cap that offers better sealing and protection for the battery.

EOTech’s XPS2 Zombie stopper is intended to bring you the ultimate Zombie Stopping Holographic Technology experience. It has a faster target acquisition compared to the previously manufactured EOTech XPS’, and probably the fastest among other related sights not manufactured by EOTech. This is perfect if you are threatened by a bulk of brain eating beasts, or any other things you intend to use your guns. Thus, EOTech is still the leading preference if you are planning to have an HWS (Holographic Weapon Sight).
