    I see that you were on here at 7:50am yesterday, but you still haven't addressed this. That's okay though.  You've said enough about yourself already.  Well done.  :thumbup:

     

    Your front facing picture really does make you look fat.

     If I had a lot more knowledge I'd consider building, but my money comes so hard I can't afford those kinds of mistakes since these rifles aren't mil-spec. That's why I value y'all and your knowledge so much!

    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.

    Here's your linked BCG:

    Here's the Toolcraft BCG from the same site:

    See the difference?

    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.

     


  4. 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.

    Cool - but overpriced for what you're getting.  Many companies do what they do - but JP caters to the RaceGun Crowd, so they charge premiums, based on what people are willing to pay.  RaceGun Parts - $$$. Ever seen the difference between a RaceGun bolt, and a regular bolt? Ever seen what the RaceGun Crowd will pay for a part that says "it's better"?...   :popcorn:

    Lots of companies make their bolts from the same materials, same HPT and MPI tests...  the bolt is not a RaceGun part - but JP make it so, and charges a premium for it.  Enjoy it. :thumbup:

    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

    What makes it better ?

    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

  7. 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

     

     


  8. 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.
