Inforce APL Initial Review

Posted in Guns with tags , , , , , , on January 18, 2013 by sosideways

For a video review of this light instead of reading through this novel, you can click on this link to watch my review on youtube.

Having a handgun or pistol for home defense is a good idea, but when the sun goes down and the lights go out in the house, the danger is still ever present. What do you do if there was a bump in the night, and your dog(s) start barking? You go check out the source of the noise with the trusty pistol of your choice and you navigate throughout your home with no problems because you’re familiar with the house’s layouts. You have no issues moving around because of the ambient lights from the different electronics around the house, as well as the night lights in the hallway.

But who is that in the hallway?

Is that an intruder that had just broke into the house and is about to burglarize the place?

Or is that a family member that had simply stayed out till the wee hours in the morning again, drunk, knocking everything over while staggering about, trying to make it back to their bedroom?

All these thoughts are going through your mind, and you wished you had a flashlight so you could figure out who it was that is in your house, but you don’t have one, so you do the next best thing and you call out to the person.

“Hey, is that you down there Jimmy?”

The way of the gun

Forgot to make a post on here since I’ve had the rifle done, so here it is.

Built this AR for HD with advice from one of my best friends who has been in the game for a long time, so nothing but quality components went into this rifle.

BCM 16″ standard mid-length upper
LaRue full auto BCG + bolt
BCM Gunfighter Mod 4 charging handle
RRA lower + LPK w/ single stage mil trigger
DSA milspec extension tube (might switch this out, the stock wiggles on this)
Magpul enhanced trigger guard
Magpul CTR stock + enhanced butt pad
Magpul MOE pistol grip
Magpul MOE mid-length handguard
Magpul AFG2 on a Magpul 11 slot rail
Magpul cantilever rail (from the illum kit) + VTAC light mount + Surefire 6P original
Aimpoint Comp ML2 + LaRue M68 mount
Troy rear flip up BUIS

Has sent 550 rounds downrange so far, and my wife also shoots quite well with this.

HD mode, engage!

HD as in home defense mode.

I say that because in the last couple of weeks I was able to finally get the last few pieces for my AR.

The final pieces were: Troy flip up rear battle sight, BCM/Vltor Gunfighter Mod 4 charging handle and a LaRue Tactical M16 auto bolt carrier group.

Alllllllllmost there

BCM upper receiver group with 16″ standard barrel.

Just need to get the bolt carrier group, charging handle and a buis and it will be good to shoot!

Still waiting on the buffer tube kit to arrive tomorrow to finish up the lower receiver.
