No dud. The longer threaded length on the RFB is standard for the RFB.
The RFB is not a sub-MOA rifle. That's not its thing. However, I think you should expect 1-2 MOA, based on the consistent reports of others. If you're seeing 40 MOA, obviously something is wrong.I took it out to the range for zeroing. It put up a solid 40 MOA.
Yeah, it's crap and you should sell it to me for $200.I took it out to the range for zeroing. It put up a solid 40 MOA.
I have a three fold plan:
1. Eliminate ammo as a variable. I'll shoot some FGMM.
2. Eliminate scope as a variable. I'll put a reddot on the RFB.
3. Eliminate rifle as a variable. Hopefully it doesn't come to this.
I saw it first!!!And yeah, Blake and I both will take it off your hands cheap, and give it a good home.
There you go propagating the myth. Special match ammo?I have a hunter that gets around .5 and and a carbine that gets around 1.5.
I said it didn't fit "well" like a normal rifle.Yes Blake, it fits just fine on a led sled. Give me a few minutes, and I'll post pictures. You of all people should know you just need a red neck spacer block.
No can, just bare threads. It's something major. Gotta be a completely broken scope or something.The RFB is not a sub-MOA rifle. That's not its thing. However, I think you should expect 1-2 MOA, based on the consistent reports of others. If you're seeing 40 MOA, obviously something is wrong.
Is this with a suppressor? If so, how about removing the suppressor to eliminate the suppressor as a variable. Could you be getting baffle strikes?
The rifles I mainly shoot are my 0.3 maximum MOA FN bolt gun, my 0.2 MOA maximum GAP bolt gun, and my 1 MOA A2 service rifle. The worst group I ever fired out of the GAP was 0.26" at 100 yards. I no longer shoot those bullets and the problem went away.Yeah, it's crap and you should sell it to me for $200.
#4 on your list may be to realize that it is a very different form-factor to shoulder, aim and shoot well. Most shooters don't hit well with one the first time they shoot one. It doesn't fit in a lead-sled well either.
You should just skip the headache and take the $200.
And whatever you do, don't listen to experienced owners that say it can easily perform at 2 MOA.
I think they're all stretching the truth View attachment 24781 . More like only 1.5 .
Interesting observation.For what purpose did you decide to acquire a semi-auto 308? If your bolt guns are as accurate as you say, maybe you had something else in mind besides hunting and plinking and such. You might be better served by, shall we say, a more "low maintenance girlfriend" than the RFB seems to be for you.
The AR10 was that bad too?:headstratch:Friday, I picked up an AR10 I had built. It had a random series of steps instead of a shoulder, so I sold it for a loss of a couple hundred bucks Monday.
I just picked up an RFB and went home and took off the flash hider.
Check accuracy with the flash hider re-installed.No can, just bare threads.
You're right. No way you should have to tolerate something that defective. Even the KT supplied flash hider probably doesn't fit right. I'll go $310 salvage value. You keep the scope and can.And as far as the muzzle threads, they're cut wrong. Poor engineering. Incompatible with any muzzle device I know of.
