  1. Mine were never that sloppy, who's the barrel from? I haven't had to use the spacer either.
  2. If you're in no hurry and when Primary arms start having it's normal weekend sales you get some deals. I bought one similar for $119 Usually they all go on sale within a months time
  3. How much oil.is on the bolt? New bolts need to be WET
  4. I honestly think you would enjoy building your own. There's no hurry here so why not take a week and read up? I think you will find it very gratifying in the end. As for mistakes,just speak up and ask questions it's not like you're spinning up raw steel.to make your components. You'll do fine.
  5. ^^^ What He Said^^^ Then there is always these if ya want the real deal
  6. It's really hard to beat the quality of Toolcraft. Right before Christmas Primary arms had them on sale, I bought 3 of them for future builds. Palameto state armory has them on sale about every other week.
  7. This isn't the review that I was looking for, but it's pretty good and done scientifically and pretty thorough. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/ar-15-flash-hider-shootout/
  8. The Surefire WarComp was ranked pretty high. I've been using them for about 5 years and it does everything I need it to do. Follow up shots are ridiculously simple, if you are into using their cans then you are all set as it is set up for suppressor use. Primary arms has them on sale for $110 https://www.surefire.com/warcomp-762-5-8-24.html
  9. I got my 5D here- https://www.ceratac.com/5D-Tactical-Router-Jig-Pro-p/5d-jig15.htm They are always $199 or less, if the site says out of stock call them they will have them . I have the Dewalt and retired it,I replaced it with the Rigid.for $100. The DeWalt can't touch the Rigid work wise.
  10. Coming from the one that knows everything you'd think.you would care to talk about the problems they were tasked to fix for the Government. I don't by their products for the cool factor. Fat jagoff
  11. Toolcraft is a solid product, but for just the bolt, they can't touch JP's offerings. Best AR-15 Upgrades with John Paul of JP Enterprises https://www.arbuildjunkie.com/best-ar-15-upgrades/
  12. What doesn't? They set the bar pretty high when they were asked to fix common failure points on a weapon platform for our military. https://jprifles.com/1.4.7_Bolt.php JP EnhancedBolt™ Fully compatible with Mil-spec .223 and standard .308 subcomponents Superior SAE 9310 material for superior resiliency and extended lifespan Additional material around cam pin hole to eliminate inherent weak point of bolt design Improved lug geometry for reduced wear and easier locking/unlocking JP Enhanced Ejector design mitigates case head extrusions and reduces brass smear JP Enhanced Extractor optimizes extraction function and eliminates multiple common ejection failures JP Enhanced Gas Rings reduce internal friction and wear of the bolt carrier while maintaining gas seal longer DLC coating offers super-high durability, lubricity and ease of cleaning
  13. As 98 recommended, here's my view. The Reaction Rod truly is the only way to go if you want to do it correctly and without stressing the upper. I will say this, you get what you pay for. I bought mine about 5 years ago and paid $150 if memory serves me correctly I didn't buy it directly from Geissele. They want $199.00
  14. If you want one of the best bolts made buy a JP bolt.
  15. Did you headspace the upper with ypur current bolt? Are AZooms plastic? Oiling them could create a suction.
  16. The M is from the forties,think about that
  17. Parts list says Carbine length gas tube and the barrel says Mid Length gas system?
  18. Little off topic, but they have Bushmaster 16" Chrome barrels for $99 https://www.cdnnsports.com/best-sellers/ar15-barrel-556-16in-socom-chrome-bore-bushmaster.html
  19. No worst than a top tier company like Geissele taking your money then getting sent a notice that it would take 13 weeks for your order to ship. I took the discount coupons I got from them at SHOT and threw them all in the trash. Ordered my stuff from Primary arms and had it 2 days later. I don't know if you realize it but you do come across as a dick towards a lot of people. In real life me and you would probably get along fine,but here not so much.
  20. It's pretty awesome, and always nice to get a new shooter interested in guns and their responsibilities
  21. Good review Like Doc asked,what upper are you using? I don't know if you know but they ripped off 5D Tactical for their jig.
  22. How much have you researched this cartridge? You will need to have machine work done on the upper for large casings. Then there is also known feeding issues. It is however a nice cartridge that has a lot of potential
  23. Finally something we agree on. Speaking as someone that temporary has a compromised immune system, washing your hands is the number one most important thing you can do for yourself. After being on chemo for 7 months, I became a germ a phobe. I finished chemo over a month ago and all my numbers are steadily climbing. I will continue the practice of washing my hands frequently because believe it or not it works.
  24. Dude,I'm not worried about you, and I sure as hell don't hate you. You do have a big line of BS and little man syndrome. I sit back and watch you talk down to just about every new person that comes along. You drive away a lot of people. I stick around for the entertainment value Don't inflate your worth because in reality you have only accomplished a small percentage of your grandious BS.
  25. You sound like a groupie, did you tell them your lumberjack stories?
