Re-zeroing fun day today, so thought I’d throw up a pick of two of my girls.... top AR10 isn’t light, but can smoothly reach out...

Looks like my AR10 is over gassed. Going to try a stiffer buffer and spring from primaryarms before I go the adjustable gas block route. Pic shows the jamming result that happened twice during firing 20 rounds

The difference between standard and HEAVY buffer and spring for an AR10... heavy is the silver...

Made in Croatia?
HS has manufactured a few of SA's pistols..XDs, etc.
It was my understanding that Springfield Armory designed the Hellcat and had HS produce it. I didn't find anything that stated otherwise.
Pretty sure my old [school] carry gun wasn't manufactured in Croatia....

.45 ACP Ultra Compact, 7+1 via Kimber mags. And they talk about the Hellcat having "snappy" recoil...🤪

Lol. Gotta wear thick gloves to make sure that baby doesn't go flying after each shot.

Didn't know that.
Yes, even their signature products like the M1A and 1911s have components largely made by outside suppliers. I've heard Wilson and/or Criterion for M1A barrels, and various other manufacturers for other components, including some in Canada, Korea, Taiwan. Their 1911 frames used to be made by Imbel in Brazil, but have supposedly switched to a US manufacturer.

There's probably still a fair bit of fitting done by SA due to the nature of each weapon and the eras in which they were designed, while the XDs are just straight up produced by HS Produkt in Croatia.
