I am slowly narrowing down my parts list and getting ready to start ordering parts. Wanted to get some input on my parts selection and make sure things would go smoothly. My goals/intended use is a light weight 16" 308 AR for hog hunting and at the range. Hunting ranges will be from up close to about 200 yards. Range distances will be up to 500 yards. I would like it to be capable of 1/2-1 moa at 100 yards. I plan to run a suppressor. Please feel free to point out anywhere I can save weight, have issues with part compatibility, or left anything off. Or your experiences with my parts selection.
Upper/ Lower Receiver- I am looking at the Aero Precision M5. I found a pretty good deal on a set with the hand guard. But it is the M5E1 upper. From what I can tell I would be stuck using their hand guards. Not sure I want to bound to a hand guard and not be able to change it if I don't like it.
Trigger- Geissele not sure which one yet.
Lower parts kit- Aero Precision
Pistol Grip- Either Magpul MOE or ERGO. I have the ERGO on my AR15 and really like it.
Charging handle- BCM Gunfighter
Barrel- I am not sure at this point. I have been looking at the JP, Proof carbon fiber, and Criterion barrels in a medium contour.
Gas system- Would like rifle length but depending on barrel may end up with mid length.
Gas Block- JP adjustable or Superlative Arms adjustable with the bleed off. Thought the bleed off would be good with the suppressor. But I need to do more research.
BCG- Looking at the JP
Hand Guard- Looking at the Bravo Company KMR 13" or 15". I want it to just cover the gas block and be cable of putting my Harris bi-pod on it for range days. It is one of the lightest I have found so far.
Flash hider and suppressor- AAC 762-SDN-6 is what I have been looking at.
