  1. That's a good excuse for me to buy it, but I wasn't actually aware of the rule. I just blundered in looking for info. I have been an Armalite fan since 2010 when I bought my son an AR10-BF for his first deer rifle. At the time I was shooting an HK-91, but when we went to the range to sight them in his AR-10 was several orders of magnitude more accurate than the HK. I tried everything I could think of to get the HK to group better and nothing worked. So I sold it and bought an AR-10BNMF, and I still have it (which says a _*LOT*_ about it!).
  2. The M153GN18 was my birthday present to myself last year, and I'm planning to get the AR103GN198 for my birthday this year. They're currently out of stock at the two places I routinely deal with, but I'll check some other sources. C (buys himself really nice birthday presents :-)
  3. I have a bad habit of reading gun reviews on TTAG, and particularly reviews of manufacturers I like (Armalite, Sig, CZ, and others). So when they posted a glowing review of Armalite's M-153GN18 I had to have one. I bought it on November 18 last year, and it is everything they said it would be! Basically, I'm impressed as all get out! This got me to wondering if I should buy the AR-10 version of that rifle. I suppose that the Tactical version is pretty much the same thing, but I don't need all that Pic rail between the upper receiver and the sight block. The 3GN version looks cleaner (and the SS barrell looks plum gorgeous!) I already have two AR-10s, a BF and a BNMF, and they're cool, but 'ya know, gotta feed that fire. Do any of you guys have an AR-103GN18, and if so what do you think about it? Charles
  4. I have continued to search for Armalite mounts. Not because I need one, but to see if any more showed up. There hasn't been a darn thing until today, and it's part of a package with an AR-50. The pic is kind'a embarassing. :-)
  5. I guess it's a good thing that I got all of them I want (for right now), because they have completely dried up! I haven't seen so much as an EX0027 (1" mount) in weeks!
  6. A TTAG post on FB today talked about carry handles. I didn't realize that there were aftermarket products, but there are. Google "AR carry handle" and you'll get a bunch of hits. There's one on Opt Plan for $17.00!
  7. Also ebay. Some Armalite stuff shows up there too.
  8. I don't know if the EA5050 is identical to the DPMS part, but if you need measurements or pics let me know and I'll drag mine out.
  9. This is Armalite's version. It's called an EA5050, and it has also been discontinued. I don't see one anywhere, but you never know.
  10. The Noreen BN36 is what I have in mind. I purely love 30-06, and an AR pattern rifle in that caliber is a sort of Holy Grail for me.
  11. I'm a fan of Armalite one piece scope mounts. They're familiar to me, they're durable, and they are (were) reasonably priced. Also, it seems like the fashion today is toward extreme cantelever scope mounts, and they don't look very robust to me. I standardized on 30mm scopes some years ago and, (if I recall correctly) 30mm Armalite scope mounts come in two varieties: Low and high. I began this farrago owning two 10805010 mounts (high) and one EX0022 (low) mount, but I needed another mount for a Tikka T3X that I bought last year. VZ925 was kind enough to send me a link to the last retail EX0022 in existance (at Wolverine Supply) which I bought, but I wanted a spare mount. It came to me courtesy of a Gunbroker auction for $30.00 with me as the sole bidder (the mount is fine, but it didn't present well), and it was immediately installed on an Aero Precision AR 5.56 that I couldn't resist building. Again I needed a spare mount. I passed on a couple of 1" Armalite scope mounts on ebay and GB, and I passed on a like new 10805010 on GB for $89.00 (+ $10.00 s/h). Then a like new 10805010 appeared on GB at $30.00, and for a while I was the high bidder at $32.00. When the auction ended I was the high bidder at $77.00, and when the mount arrived it was almost immediately installed on my Sig PCC! I think you can see where this story is going. A couple of weeks ago JBA sent me a link to an ebay auction for a new EX0022 for $80 (+ $5.00 s/h). I sat on it for a whole day, and on June 30 I bought it. And that's my spare mount. For God's Sake don't anybody suggest another rifle for me to buy, otherwise the rodeo starts all over again! Charlie
  12. I hadn't considered the length of the barrel beyond the gas port. So given an 18, 20 and 24 inch barrel, all having a rifle length gas system, the 18 needs a larger port than the 20 or 24 to push the same amount of gas down the tube. That makes sense.
