  1. AR15
    once again, I have some extra stuff, and can't resist turning a pile of parts into an actual firearm. Some of you may have seen my recent ar-15 upper build, the entire upper is new, but it is riding on an old carbine lower i've have for over a decade. it works, but there are a few areas...
  2. Range Visits
    Yesterday I got up to one of my favorite shooting spots in the mountains, its just an open burn area that they have designated as ok to target shoot at even through most fire bans. anyways, I got to test out several things that have yet to be able to do. first i made some new target stands...
  3. AR15
    After only about 150 rounds, this ar-15 bolt it showing what i consider excessive wear and even gouging if you would. the rifle feels overgassed and ejection is alittle too aggressive. I have several other ar's and none have this happening after many more rounds than this one. I believe the...
  4. Optics
    Alright, im in pursuit of a unicorn. what I consider would be the perfect ar-15 ( MSR) optic for the average civilian. Here is what I would like. Compact and lightweight Variable magnification from 1-4x Durable Good etched reticle ( clarified below) decent glass with little fishbowl...
  5. Gunsmithing
    I got a smokin deal on a new barrel, and some other stuff on "black friday" deals. I was going to build an entire new upper, but i decided i want to rebuild my current 16" rifle upper as im not exactly happy with it. Its functional and not really bad per-se.. but, I dont like the way the...
  6. AR15
    I mentioned these once in a build thread of mine, however I thought it worth making a dedicated post for them. I have just placed my second order from them for their pivot /take down pin shims, these fill in any gap in between the upper and lower and make for a nice tight fit with no slop...
  7. AR15
    Eugene Morrison Stoner, the father of the AR-15 and the M16, is a titan in the world of both military- and civilian-use firearms. If he had done nothing but design the AR-15, his name would go down in history. But, of course, he did so much more than that. In addition to changing the landscape...
  8. AR15
    I picked up a "spare" ar-15 upper and it didn't take very long until I just had to build it out. I already have some parts sitting in a box and only needed a few more. I have a nice Midwest industries 7" handguard, low pro gas block, and a 5.56 bolt and CH. The election happened and I decided...
  9. AR15
    I Kinda panicked when i noticed some wear on my old ar rifle upper, so i ordered a new stipped upper just to have as a replacement. how knows what will happen with ar-15 parts availability in the future. so anyways, I have a nice carbine lenght 7" handguard that i took of my rifle, so im like...
  10. AR15
    Just watched this on the Military Arms Channel on YouTube, It's not very Scientific, but interesting showing the difference between 1:12 20", 1:7 20" and 1:7 14.5" AR's using M193 55gr Ball and M855 62gr Ball ammunition against soft targets (Watermelons).
  11. AR15
    My first AR I purchased back in 2010, its a S&W MP-15 MOE 5.56 1/9 16" carbine gas rifle with the military style a2 front sight post. its served me very well for the last 10 years, and proven to be quite accurate for what it is, not really intended to be a bench gun. well recently i've gotten...
  12. AR15
    Lately I've been thinking that a 14.5 pinned/welded upper on a carbine rifle lower would be about the best all around/ GP carbine. being the owner of a 10.5 pistol and a 16" rifle, I can see how a 14.5 rifle would be kinda the "best of both worlds." the 14.5 upper with lpvo would be a great...
  13. AR15
    Hey guys, here is some backstory on my first AR-15 Build. I bought it from a company that is local to me called Ormond Arms, which I am pretty sure has been in business for about a year. Anyway, I got an AR-15 rifle kit from them with an 80 percenter in a tungsten finish. They have an easy jig...
  14. Ammunition Reports
    I would like to have a discussion on ideal bullet weights for short barrel ar-15 pistol or sbr type 5.56 firearms. I am trying to decide what ammo to zero for and stock up on. Ill always use 55 gr or 62gr fmj for practice and plinking just because i have a lot of it and its usually readily...
  15. AR15
    Ordered a lower receiver, this is going to have to be a budget build so I started with an Anderson MFG stripped lower. $34.99 before shipping. the ffl im having it shipped to doesnt charge a ffl transfer fee if you buy $25 worth of stuff form them and pay the background check fee. so ill...
  16. AR15
    Title pretty much says it, what do yall think? I am still leaning towards a 50 yard zero as it keeps the groups tighter within the range that i would be most likely to need it for. If i want to stretch it out its because im at the range and i have time to fiddle with it.
  17. Optics
    So lately im really considering buying a Sig Rome5 RDS. Currently on my AR im running a Burris ar-332 3x prism sight. its a great piece of kit, very clear/crisp and good FOV out to what I consider the maximum practical range of the carbine its paired with. I figured if it needed to use it for...
  18. .22/rimfire
    I want to build a 22 with my son for him to get some practice on. AR platform, lightweight, relatively inexpensive. I’m thinking a pistol length / SBR for a few reasons. Shorter barrel for weight and easier to control with his little arms, and I think he’ll like the way it looks too, like...
  19. AR15
    OK, so im trying to come up with a plan for ammo going forward for the ar. currently i have a bunch of different kinds of ammo that all mostly function well but offer various degrees of accuracy. I want to narrow this down to 4 rounds that I will purchase going forward, giving me more...
  20. AR15
    Alright here's the deal. I want to get a new upper receiver that I can use with my current lower until eventually I get another lower. Anyways, the plan is to end up with both a close in carbine and a medium-"long" range rifle. Currently I have a S&W mp-15 moe that has been lightly...
