  1. Newset build, coming in right at 8lbs 1.5ozs with sights and rail panels installed. Maybe not the lightest out there, but it's a large frame AR, and should at least shut the Scar guys up ? Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr
  2. And of course, made a minor change to my other recent build... Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr

  4. Thanks. Far as the FDE build, it was built with the following: Aero Precision M5E1 enhanced upper 12" keymod handguard SLR clamp on adjustable gas block Faxon Match series 18" heavy fluted 5R barrel w/ rifle gas Aero m5 LPK Faxon 308 BCG ACS-L Stock Vortex OPMOD Strike Eagle 1-6x Armaspec SRS recoil system Radian Raptor LT charging handle Diamondhead Nightbrite flip up sights Vortex 2" offset mount LaRue MBT trigger Noveske Ambi 60 deg safety Ambi mag release VG6 762 muzzle brake Magpul MIAD grip 2018-02-06_10-24-13 by hoevito, on Flickr With the adjustable gas and SRS recoil assembly, the rifle shoots extremely smooth as you can see. Very little recoil for a 308. This was me breaking it in at the range. Cycled cheap Tula steel and everything else without issue, including 7.62x51 Malaysian surplus and 168gr FGMM. Didn't do any real formal accuracy testing, but I did manage to surprise myself a bit, produced the below 5 and 3 shot groups at 100 using 168gr FGMM 20180208_141954 by hoevito, on Flickr 20180208_141958 by hoevito, on Flickr
  5. Yeah, pretty much lol. You don't say ? Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr I'm thinking 16" Criterion/rifle gas variant this time around.
  6. Finished it awhile ago, but thought I'd share. Did my first a few years back, 20" blackhole weaponry bull barrel build on Matrix receiver set. Accurate as snot, but heavy as poop. Sold it and moved on and learned a thing or two in the process... 20150830_120535 by hoevito, on Flickr 2nd build used an Aero M5 match set and 16" Faxon taper profile barrel. Build was relatively lightweight, accurate, and fun to shoot...but was just missing "something". 20151004_151417 by hoevito, on Flickr 3rd build, went with the Aero M5E1 set this time, used a Faxon match 5R fluted 18" heavy barrel, SRS recoil system, and this build is pretty much perfect. Amazingly light recoil for a 308, very accurate, and comes in at only 8lbs8oz without a mag (but with sights and handguard rail panels ?) Untitled by hoevito, on Flickr
