That paint job looks really good, but you need to work on that stance, square up a little big. Yes the AR-7 is a henry and it is ok, not the best thing in the world but ok, it was free so any free gun is a good gun even if you just sell it to get a better one. My AR-7 does jam about every 25 rounds,...

Yeah, I have a thing about having to paint all my long-arms. I can't keep a gun for more than 4 days without pulling out the krylon. my AR-15 has over 4 patterns on it. The tiger stripe will probaly be the last one I do, I'm afraid to put any more paint on it.

I had one of them on my AR. First trip to the range I watched the red dot move up an to the left with each shot. If you are on a budget (poor) you can only afford to buy once. Get a quality optic.

You could then use that to secure inpaled objects or a ...
