Got the Banshee in and put a Sparc-AR, CMC trigger, short-throw ambi safety and magpul B.A.D. lever on it; all of which I had laying around. I have an MRO that I bought used and was going to use on it, but it has battery-life issues, only lasting a few hundred hours instead of the thousands it should. I may see if trijicon will warranty repair it even though I bought it used.

But really like the stupid thing so far. The brace is their 'micro' brace, which is just too short for me & my sons, so plan to put a normal length buffer tube on it to give it another inch or so of 'pull' length. But even with all that, still am impressed with it. The radial-delay blowback does reduce recoil, so it's about the same as the much heavier Camp-9 carbine even though it's a whole lot smaller & lighter.

This was before adding the BAD lever, trigger & safety. Just put the red dot, wml light & flashcan on it and function-tested it before taking it on our short Houston trip a week or so ago:


Only thing I've bought specifically for it is the mag carrier in the pic. All the other crap was just laying around, either from previous guns or picked up on sale in the past. The Sparc-AR used to be on my .22 rifle, the flashcan is from the 9mm AR pistol I sold, the WML used to be on my main AR but had been replaced with a brighter one, etc.

I may pick up a couple of the glock 24-round magazines; haven't decided yet. I don't really like the long 33-rounders, but would be nice to have more than the 15 rounds of the G19 magazines.

John you might want to check into the Magpul 21 or 27 round Glock magazines.

I went ahead & ordered some glock 24 rounders. I've had good luck with the two magpul 12-rd magazines I have for the 26, but for this gun I like the idea of 24-round capacity more than the 21 or 27 rounds of the extended magpuls. The 21's are kind of close to the 15's and the 27's are close to the 33's in length, where the 24 is exactly in the middle between them. May just be an ocd thing, but I like the idea.

Hoping to get "My Country, Tis of Thee" recorded at the musical targets this weekend if weather cooperates, since July 4th is only a week away. I looked into The Star Spangled Banner, but disregarding the fact that I don't have enough range note-wise on my target to do it correctly anyway, it's also more than a hundred notes in length. So it would take four reloads with normal magazines or two reloads even if using drums (and the drums do not lend themselves to fast reloads).

I looked at Chris Cheng's musical target videos, but he splices & edits them to get rid of reloads (and potentially mistakes as well). I confess up front that I don't always get it right on the first take, but I'd rather just re-do the whole thing than edit things out after the fact. My Country Tis of Thee is only (iirc) something like 40-45 notes, so either a single drum or one reload will get through it. So for my preferred, simple record-and-post approach without editing, this other (shorter) one will suffice.

I can agree about size. Wish Magpul had come out with a 25rd one like the UZI magazines were for my carbine.
Two split a 50rd box perfectly and extras were more handy on person than the 33rd ones.

Well it was just pissing down raining here today so obviously the range was out. My wife and I took a 3 hour round trip drive to pick up bullets for myself & a friend. Picked up 17 buckets (1,000 each) of bullets in .38, .44 & .45. That should keep me going for a while, unless we have a zombie apocalypse!
