Figured I start an MR762 owner's picture/sound-off thread. Let's call it "Club 762" hehehe. Maybe we can get challenge coins made too, lol.

Mine arrived while I was in Ashburn. Flew home tonight, walked in the door--big hug for the Mrs, big hug for the kids, HUGE hug to my new MR762 :biggrin:
Yeah, I'm giddish over it.

Ok, here she is, #860. Almost done (see below). I added a Knight's VFG which will come in handy once I mount a red-dot, although weight might lead me down another path.

The tilting Harris bi-pod and mount came from HKParts.net. They have a good price for the pod and three different options for the mount.

Burris was kind enough to source me a P.E.P.R. QD mount. I tested its return-to-zero with a bore laser at 50-yards and it was on the money. At 100, the laser was pretty weak so it was tough to tell, but it seemed right there. It give a 1" rise which places the optic a little high for my preference of cheek-weld as the mount was designed with a "see-through" for low mounted iron sights. I'll probably step it down to a pair of 3/4" high rings but for now, I'll give the P.E.P.R. a test drive. Ideally, I would drop the optic down to a 40mm objective lens with 1/2" tall rings.

The optic is nothing fancy; Millet TRS-1 4-16x50 w/ illuminated mil-dot. The range I shoot at gave me a smokin' deal on it. It got really good reviews for the price point so I figured why not for starters. It's clear so far up to about 200 yards and holds a zero after zooming in and out about a dozen times. I haven't had a chance to point it anything farther away yet so the 300+ yard clarity is unknown. The turrets are really high which kills my idea of a red-dot atop the rings. But as I said, at some point I'll replace it with something that doesn't take up as much realesate.

Still trying to figure out which grip to use. Ergo makes a decent PSG-1 style tactical grip. I am supposed to be receiving a sample to demo but I haven't seen it yet. The HK-logo'd Nill grip (as seen at SHOT and in their catalog) is REALLY nice and comes with a complimentary $400+ price tag.

No muzzle brake as of yet. I'm waiting on an AAC Blackout Brake which I will re-tap to 15x1 and bore out for 7.62 as long as their engineering department doesn't tell me it will kill its affectiveness.

Anyhow, here she is...

What serial number did you get Joe. I will not see mine for several months but my FFL said my serial number was 925. Looking forward to seeing pics and the way others will configure theirs.

Awesome, Joe! And you to Frogman! Shoot, just got back from directing a shoot in SF and when I came home there were three 762 bags I ordered from the webshop. No rifles though. :( But I also had three smaller packages waiting. Some things I needed for a rifle match. :) Anyway, I look forward to my future contribution of photos to this thread.

Interesting. #818 here. Finally decided on a scope (Leupold VX-R Patrol 3-9x40mm) but don't have the mount (American Defense AD-Recon 30mm) yet. BUIS are KAC micro flip ups (600m rear). Pictures after I get the mount.

Bought my MR from a dealer out of Orlando at the Fort Lauderdale Gun show about 3 weeks back..I have a Leupold VX-R Duplex 3 x 9 at home I am thinking of putting on mine,...I would rather have had the "patrol" model,.. but I was in a hurry to get one when they first came out and this was the only one in stock locally..PS..did you buy your MR from O.T.B.?

Never heard of O.T.B. I got mine from a local gun shop in the Port St. Lucie area. They had just gotten it that day and it was on the shelf for only an hour or two before I wandered in and took it off their hands.

I got serial number #297. Have a Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40 on there now with a set of MFI rings. I'll have to get some pics together of it....it's one of the finer rifles I own. That and my SR9(TC) with one piece claw mount and Zeiss Conquest.

91X not sure if its 5 or 4 with out looking.

I refuse to take a photo until it becomes beautified. It must look like a G28 no matter what!
