    Finally got the stamp for my Vector V51 SBR.

    Submitted individual Form 1 through Silencer Shop on 11/14/2017
    Check was cashed 12/7/2017
    Approved 5/18/2018
    Stamp in my hands 5/25/2018

    So, about 6.3 months from start to finish; 5.5 months since check was cashed. Seems like a pretty quick turnaround, in ATF terms anyhow. Maybe they actually *are* speeding up a bit?

    I have the Vector A2 stock, but I decided I wanted to try the A3-type collapsing stock first. I don't think the stock is going to be the most comfortable thing to shoot when shouldered, but it sure looks sweet. And when collapsed it's mighty short. :)

    The A3 stock arrived from Vector in its original slate-grey finish, so I had Jayson at IGF refinish it with his Black Envirotech finish since it's closer to an original HK job. It's also a perfect match for the Vector finish. Also added one of IGF's 4-prong flash hiders since I wanted a different look than the original A2 birdcage-type device that was on there. Jayson refinished my CEMTE eons ago with the same finish, so I knew it would look good.

    Now I just need to decide if I’m going to add an optic of some sort. I’m fiddling around with my current optics combos and may end up with a spare Aimpoint PRO in an AD68 mount. That might work on this SBR, though I might want to go with something a little smaller. But we shall see.

    In the meantime, I’m glad I finally got the stamp. Just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend!

    Cheers,

    Nice weapon.

    The only part you might not like, is the collapsible stock and your face. Try a full size stock.

    The A2 stock will be used for most sessions for the reason you mentioned. But the A3 stock was worth every penny. :)
