    Is Facebook the only user group for this?
    Is there a user thread on CGN that I am missing?
    I don't have social media, so I feel like I am a little out of the loop on this.

    Back from the range, with the new upper I'm not getting crazy wide groups anymore, having said that with 8x at 100 yards, bipod up front, bag in the back and a brutally tight cheek weld the best I was able to wring out of it was about 2.5 MOA with federal gold medal sierra matchking and nosler match.

    worst groups were about 4MOA, maybe a little over.

    So while I wouldn't say it's particularly impressive(especially given the THICC barrel profile), it's probably on par with or better than the tavor for around the same money(with the benefit of standard ergos and more upgrade options). I'd say it's acceptable for what it is so long as you go in to it with tempered expectations.

    The machining is lovely, it's solid in the hands and I had zero stoppages.

    My god.. if that’s the report it’s not worth the money.
    Half that into my ATRS and it prints moa with no effort.
    Buyer pays shipping and insurance on any EE sale unless explicitly stated otherwise in the ad or agreed upon as part of the deal.

    All posts made by me are my opinion, and you must do your own research

    Iím actually disappointed as well; I tested 16 of the barrels and averaged 1.5-2.5 moa, so 4 is not what I was expecting.

    Iím curious what others are going to get.

    Different kinds of ammo? I ran with bulk 55gr FMJ which did better than last time (probably 2.5-3MOA), green tips, barnaul 55 and 62, hornady black 75 in 556 and 223, federal gold medal match and nosler match.

    How many shots in the group?

    Really hoping I didn't just get myself stuck with the lemon of the lot

    Would fluting those current "heavy" Barrels between the Chamber Root and the Gas Block help to reduce the front-heavy weight any? Just a thought.....

    One more data is in, decisions can be made. :-)

    Remember, the Sterling R18 is the only 180 variant that comes out of the box with an adjustable gas block. I don't know if dialing the gas up and down would affect accuracy, but it might be worth looking into. Also, triggers are being used? Important to know for comparison. Good luck to everyone!

    i installed a hiperfire enhanced duty. has a very decent break.

    i don't think the gas system should make a difference especially at rifle length (bullet is only going to be in the barrel for a tiny amount of time while the piston is moving)

    worth a shot though.
