    I spent about 8 hours at the range Saturday with four different rifles. I shot the WOW extensively from the bench. Using a front pedestal and rear bag the rifle tracked perfectly to the rear. This is on a light gun. Compared to my other 223's I had no mule rise. I was able to observe the target shot to shot never loosing the sight picture.

    I left my "blasting" ammo at home setting on the counter so did not get to run and gun it. That will be cured this week. The are I shot was covered up this weekend so mid-week I will go out and set up a movement course and see how it function for me. I've got a timer so I'll see if the splits are any different vs. my regular AR's. I can say that with the combination top ports and linear comp I am very impressed already. I can also say that accuracy was not effected adversely as I got some very good groups during the testing.

    I didn't have any issues with mounting or the keeping the front nut tight. I used Peramtex High Temp thread locker and it seems to be doing fine. Some of my test groups were not particularly slow so it did get hot.

    Cool

    This looks like it's going to turn out to be a really good. Any plans for a 6.8 version?

    I was planning a 5.56 and a 30 caliber production version. I could do a 6.8 version, but not until I do a production run. Which I don't have scheduled yet.

    Greg, mule rise = muzzle rise? When you go for the run and gun, be prepared to adjust the top ports to compensate for any muzzle movement left or right. And check the front nut tightness frequently during your testing.
    Many Thanks for testing it out!

    That's good to hear, I know a 6.8 is a niche market compared to 5.56 and .30 so I know it may be awhile off.

    LOL. Well it didn't kick like mule so there wasn't a lot of rise there.

    I understand the port adjustment. I have a DTA MilBrake set up on an M16 that shoves it down into the hand from the left, I'm a lefty, and it helps greatly in FA work.

    I'll check that nut up front as I go for sure. The testing is always fun.
