    Adam you did a awesome review! Could you please let me know if The Accessory Pro Gun mount will fit a GoPro Hero 4? You mention you use a GoPro although it was not specific on which camera.

      Hey Son, glad you liked it. It'll work with any GoPro since they all use the same mounting system.

GoPro Weapon Mount Review Part II: Non-Railed Mounts

GoPro Weapon Mount Review Part II: Non-Railed Mounts

In trying to find reviews of GoPro mounts for rifles, I was disappointed that nothing I found online seemed to talk about how to mount them, or if it did, it didn't show any example photos of what the mount looked like, and what the images looked like when mounted.

Just like my earlier review for GoPro mounts for rifles with rails, this review will covers a couple different mounting options if you've got a rifle without rails. Oh yeah, and lots of pictures.

The stuck EoTech screw

I don't remember putting on any Loctite, maybe I forgot or maybe it comes that way from the factory. In either case, here is how I replaced the EoTech picatinny rail screw with a thumb screw.

How to Zero the M16A1 Series Rifle

How to Zero the M16A1

Now that I've got my M16A1 clone put together from the kit and my 80% lower, and the rear sight fixed, its time to take it to the range and get it sighted in. In order to do that I'll have to zero the sights. Finding an old copy of Army STP 21-1-SMCT from 1987 proved to be a bit difficult, so I've transcribed a copy here for future reference.

M16A1 broken rear sight

So I took my recently finished M16A1 clone to the range to be zeroed, and I could not for the life of me get the group to move left or right. After a bit of searching, I discovered the rear sight drum was broken. Note the hairline crack in the photo.

Crap. Now what?

Building Your Own Firearms

80% AR15 Lower Receiver

A few folks have asked me about DIY firearms, like this beauty here. I'll share what I know, what it boils down to is that an individual can make their own firearms provided they are not made with the intent to sell and they are made in accordance with all other local, state, and federal laws.
