that was awesome! she was so excited that she did it!
Jeff,Impressive. I forwarded this to my son and his brother-in-law, Paul. Paul, who is currently stationed with the Army in Germany, responded with the following conversation he had with his infant daughter:Initially I was pretty impressed, so like a good parent I previewed it prior to showing it to my daughter. I found no flaws. Maddie was initially impressed but had the following comments. Negatives-Did not conduct an initial functions check or check to make sure the weapon was clear-Failed to do a PROPER functions check at the end of her reassembly-Failed to make sure the gas rings were properly aligned Positives-Good muzzle awareness throughout her sequence-Broke the weapon down to include disaasembly of the extractor(normally not done)-Good use of the "wrist flick" to ensure the bolt carrier assembly was both properly assembled as well as postioned to engage the extracting handle Had a good discussion with Maddie on her last "negative" I am not convinced you need to check for gas ring alignment, Maddie out that since the AR-15/M-16/M-4 series rifles use a gas impingement system rather than a short stroke op rod that the gas ring alignment is the most important part of the assembly. At that point she wanted a formula bottle so we curtailed the discussion. Paul
