Ok, so last week I purchase a LaRue rail for one of my guns. No big deal, nice rail. That was it. Well today the rail arrives, in a really big box........

So I open the box and to my surprise there's a very cool LaRue bottle opener, (got one at Shot Show years ago), two great bumper stickers, a LaRue catalog, three copies of the Constitution of the United States, and......a bottle of "Dillo Dust" (Dry Rub). How cool is that!!!!! The Dillo Dust even has complex instructions: "Just rub on meat & cook."

Well Mark, as a Special Forces sniper I already know you have some of the best products on the market and as a professional chef I will be more than happy to evaluate your "Dillo Dust" !

And the DD is pretty damned good! That's why it's rationed at SHOT. (And why I'm hoping he ships out a couple cases of it for the SF Sniper Comp next month. :p)

Doubt I would get the extras (And wouldn't expect or need them), but the fact they go the extra mile for those who earned it says a lot.

LaRue is a class act and a true patriot. Got my OBR and got all of the above, + his new paint can lid / stir system. The dillo dust is a awesome!

I bought an 18" PredatOBR 7.62 from them and the safety was a little sticky for my taste, although it probably would have smoothed out after a few hundred rounds. They overnighted me a shipping box and paid for return shipping, fixed it overnight (dropping in an upgraded trigger assembly at the same time for free), then overnighted it back to me. Last week, my BCG got knocked off the bench by someone else while I was cleaning my barrel at the range, bending the carrier key. They overnighted me an entirely new bolt and carrier and sent a return label for the damaged one. I have never had to ask for anything special and I haven't been charged for any of this - it is just how LaRue does business.

I get really tired of reading forum lurkers run them down because they chose to prioritize military and law enforcement orders when production was insufficient to meet demand.

Now that's some good marketing going on there!!

Let us know how the Dillo Dust is.

WILCO, I tasted it right after I smelled it (yeah I'm that kind of chef). For a dry rub to taste that good off my finger is a very good sign......

I'm thinking a beef brisket or pork shoulder is in order.......

I'd use it on a pork shoulder or pork ribs. Pork seems to respond better to a rub than beef. For brisket and beef ribs, I just use salt and pepper with oak smoke, red oak if possible.

Guilty. It also helps to throw a couple of handfuls of Pecan shells into the fire box. Not red-headed fire box, smoker fire box.......

I'll second the pork shoulder recommendation for the DD. It also does evil things to rotisserie chicken.

LaRue is a great company. Every time I want a new toy I will hide the bottle and tell the wife we are out and the only way we can get more dillo dust is if I buy product x from Larue.

No surprise there. I emailed at 1500 and received a brand new upper at 0900 the next day...before master Rick schooled me in prone vs bench and that there was nothing wrong to begin with. Im too embarassed to complain or ask them anything now. They've given me the RISR, POD, and Mark Fingar pulled a retaining pin from a demo PredatOBR to replace my worn one. Hard not to be a walking advertisement for Larue. I've used the dillo dustto great effect on turkey, burger, fries, baked potato, eggs, ramen, and the list grows

I'm glad to know the Cumberland SRT and the Bureau HRT use the formidable Larue OBR

Try the DilloDust on microwave popcorn. if you are eating the non-buttered popcorn. After you pop it open the bag shake into the bag to taste reroll the top of the bag and shake.

I add a little cayanne pepper to is when I use it for dry rub.

Mark LaRue is a class act. Now if he would just bring back LaRue range day.:munchin

I love the DilloDust, it's even better than Memphis's Rendezvous dry rub. It's always a hot commodity at the Force Recon reunions.

Shot one a couple months ago. Expect it to cloverleaf at 100M.

What Peregrino meant there is if doesnt clover leaf with FGMM, M118LR or other match grade variant, it aint the rifle :D Hell, my OBR placed 5 to 10rds in 1 MOA center to center with 147gr surplus!

Yes, been there, done that :o...and was privileged to be coached and made better lead slinger by an SF sniper instructor out of the experience

Try the Dillo Dust on French Fries. I use it on just about everything at one time or another.

Although my M4gery has LaRue parts (tactical handguard and EOTech mount), the Dillo Dust was not passed through by the fine gentleman who built it for me.

I guess I need to find something else to buy . . .

A LaRue mount arrived today via UPS/USPS. Wife is already Dillo for Dillo Dust! :D

Now I finally have something to put on top of that big ole gun I can look through.




Can't wait till I get a scope to put in it! :p

You can purchase LaRue Tactical 20 Inch PredatOBR 7.62 for me and I'm sure there will be some Dillo Dust in the package that I will send to you.......:munchin

Make it the 5.56 and throw in one of your best home-cooked meals whenever I find myself in AZ and you have a deal :D.

Ordered my second Aimpoint T1 with mount from Larue and received all of the above and a paint mixer. What else will they think of? See how easy it is to maintain a customer base? Great products, great service and free stuff. A winning combination.
