SR 762 upgrades and options.

Let me start off saying, I love my SR 762 and have had zero issues. It eats every type of ammo I've fed it.

Now there are some things I'd like to change about my rifle.

The first thing to go was the trigger. I swapped it out for a Hiperfire 24E. I absolutely love hiperfire triggers. The best pull and break I have found on a single stage trigger, and I have tried a bunch.

I also changed out the stock. I put on a VLTOR IMOD. I have one on every one of my ARs. They just feel "right" to me.

The next thing I changed was the flash suppressor/compensator. I replaced it with a Troy Medevil flash suppressor. I'm thinking about changing it again, maybe a JP compensator to reduce recoil a little. Which leads into my next change.

The fealt recoil isn't bad but could be better. I'm thinking about trying a JP Silent Capture Spring. Has anyone use one of these? Maybe have a better suggestion?

Pictures will be added later, I'm traveling right now and plan on take some as soon as I get home.

I am still out of town, but here is one I had in my phone. It's not a great picture.

Nice! Lookin' good! How do you like the Burris? Which one is it and is it mounted in a PEPR mount? I like what I am seeing!

.

The JP SCS will cut down the cheese grater sound of the standard buffer spring more than reduce actual felt recoil. You'll want to get the optional spring kit that has different weight buffer springs that can be swapped out on the buffer itself. Don't know if the springs will actually give you any real noticeable reduction in recoil though. "Most" people opt for a heavier buffer. It does quiet down the spring noise.

The hydraulic buffers do help reduce felt recoil. Don't know of one for the 308, but they do help on the AR 15's.

If you can hear the buffer spring when this big dog barks, you have far better ears than I!

Does the SR762 use standard buffers and buffer springs? I know they are the same size as a 5.56 AR, but I'm thinking they have different weights or spring rates to cater to the 7.62 round and the specifics of Ruger's gas system. I know the Colt 5.56 conversion for their LE901 comes with a different buffer and spring.

Ok I am back from my vacation and I promised better pictures.

These pictures were taken tonight and I have changed a few things since the last picture.

I will be at the range first thing in the morning and will post my thoughts.

RANGE REPORT

All I can say is WOW.

This is now a completely different rifle. Just changing out the buffer and compensator changed everything.

The recoil is now just slightly more than a standard 5.56 NATO. It has some kick but nothing compared to what it was. I accomplished this by changing the stock buffer and spring to the JP Silent Capture Spring and I used the Red/Yellow spring from the kit. Here is the link to the JP SCS kit JP Rifles. The compensator is the JPTRE-5.58B.750 and here is the link JP Rifles.

Also I HIGHLY suggest the Hiperfire Hipertouch 24E. While at the range an old Army Marksmanship Unit shooter and friend of mine wanted to see what all the hype was about. He was damn near speechless after three rounds. He laughed at me and simply said "order me one". Here is the link HIPERTOUCH® 24E - Elite AR15/10 Fire-Control Drop-In.

If you are Mil/LEO there are some great deals on this trigger out there. I paid less the $200 for mine.

This rifle is some much fun to shoot and has taken its place as my SHTF rifle, and now sits loaded and ready right next to my go bag.

Have you ever calculated the cost per round for reloading?

Yeah for my 308 it about 47 cents a round, and my 556 about 29 cents a round. All depending on what powder and projectile I use. I try to use the same powder for both. Right now I am using BLC2 and 4064. Also use XBR sometimes.

Not to mention getting more consistent and accurate rounds too.
