  1. To many Americans forget to easily, unless it directly involves them. Well written story
  2. "2006 LJ", that has every goodie imaginable while still maintaining a stock appearance. Built as an expo vehicle.
  3. That's the thing in a nutshell. My first go around I bought everything from Aero precision because I didn't feel like dicking around matching parts. Little different ball game starting with 80% Gen 1 lowers, but everything you need to know can be found here.
  4. This spring I bought up 10k of Federal gren tip 5.56 that came in 20 round boxes for $225 a thousand. I don't think I'll will ever see it go that low again in my lifetime. Still a good deal.
  5. I have 5 cases of 5.45x39 7N6. Each case is 2,150 rounds Everything is still sealed up as it came from factory. $ 0.19 a round you pay shipping
  6. I want to clarify this was on my M5E 308. My 5.56 never had a problem with any of them the mag's I named.
  7. ASC makes quality stuff. Last year I bought 30-ten round mags @ $7.50 each, along with 30- twenty round mags for $9.00 each. ( 308 not Grendel) There were a lot of bad reviews, I have fired thousands of rounds through their mags and I NEVER had a hiccup from the ones I used. Now Hexmag not so much, I also had a few FTF with a magpaul 25 rounder.
  8. I didn't take Toms post personal if I did I wouldn't have replied. I did 6 years in the corp and another 2 in the Army,believe me I understand what it's like to explain stuff over and over to ROCKS. I come here because it's a close community and it's quiet compared to large forums where you spend a day reading the utter BS opinions of people that talk the talk Ok enough There are a few things I want to accomplish. I want to build a few farm guns cheaply. More than likely I am probably going to buy ten spare BA 5.56 barrels the next time Primary arms has them on sale for $88. I am also stocking up on spare parts in case we start having a national supply shortage To be truthful I have all the MSR's I need so if anything I'm just bored.
  9. Thanks doc. At least the Grendel barrels are coming down in price compared to a short few years back. Bill Alexander had a home run with the platform,but at the time he came out with it everyone wanted a cheap throwaway MSR. I scored a few of Ballistic advantage 16" barrels a couple of weeks ago for $88 shipped to my door a from Primary arms.
  10. Seriously ,if I wanted to Google search it I would have. You know, maybe I wanted to hear from some folks on this forum. Tom, you don't know me from Adam but you seem to love jumping on people's shitz and personally it doesn't bother me. I understand it gets old explaining the same thing over and over,but in my case you weren't. It's not my intention to insult you,so don't misconstrued what I am saying as defamatory,but how did you get that I was building a piece of shitz rifile when I asked about a stripped quality upper? To be honest, I could have just drove down the street and bought 10 brand new Ruger MSR for $399 out the door.(more on that later) I just spent $278 on a 5D tactical jig with tooling because I wanted to make sure the guy that designed it got my money rather that supporting a couple of ripoffs. Next I went to https://www.zrtacticalsolutions.com/ and bought 10 of their 80% that are some of the best, it's pretty nice to have threaded pins and threaded adjustment pins. So there's another $435+. Here's that important point, in today's society,how would it have looked if I walked in and bough those 10 Rugers? So enough of being Debbie Downer Here was how my day started ,I ran the sweeper then had to take a flipping 45 min sabbatical because I was to tired from the chemo. Then a good friend of mine showed up that has been on my azz about getting out of the house. I strapped on my Chemo machine and he took me to my farm where I went shooting on my own range for the first time this year. I have always surround myself with quality people that I feel its an honor and a privilege to know and it felt great to see 25 of them today. My Centiron/Areo build got it's cherry popped,thing ran great on everything except IMI NATO 147gr, bolt wouldn't stay open.
  11. Hey the only reason I asked was the Areo upper. As for cheap poop I learned a long time ago,so that doesn't happen around here. I just bought 10, 80% lowers to build a few things that I wouldn't care about if it got ran over by a farm tractor etc. The guns would just reside on the peice of equipment for it's life span. So,back to my question, a stripped Aero precision upper with a piece of shitz barrel coupled with a balance of parts I pick is their a problem for $169
  12. That was a good trade. IH was just another company with the tooling and know how helping the war effort. If we had to spool up for a war todsy I'd take 5 years. We'd never win a full on brawl like the Pacific in today's game
  13. Yes, I meant my father had a M1 made by IH, my only regret was I wished I was older when he parted with it. Most people look at you like an alien when you tell them about it. For the most part people don't realize the value of things in current time. Yes "had"means getting better, but its been a long hual.
  14. Has anyone ever had any experiences with these folks? It's really hard to say no to an upper built on an Aero precision platform for $200 (1/2 off sale right now). I ask because I have been wanting a Grendel for a long time for a farm.gun. https://www.deltateamtactical.com/search.html?k=Grendel+&search=GO
