Ok, I am the parking place to start the stand. I'm quite, drove in no lights, close the door quietly. Then I chamber a round in the ar and it make that god awful metalic noise that could wake the dead. Any solutions? I've tried slow feed but unless you drop the bolt it won't chamber the round. Any sugestions?
If it was me, I might try to load up right before I got out of the truck. That's just me though, I'm always on private land. I don't know your personal preference or local & state laws. I don't know of any "fixes" for the racket.
Driving up would scare em just as much a letting the bolt go home. But, I would also suggest doing it in the truck ...... but, after turning off the truck. So, you aren't chambering in a running vehicle. Big deal here in WA state.
Either that, or wrap the whole reciever in a blanket or something, maybe a large towel, to hide the noise alittle.
You must have a really quiet truck..... I think if the coyotes could hear the bolt slam they heard the truck as well. I try and be as quiet as possible as well so I feel your pain but I am not sure it is a big deal.
