  1. I bought and used this tool and it worked perfectly. My M5 shoots great!
  2. Chattanooga here
  3. Tennessee here, north of you, but still in the south! Welcome!
  4. @AvantGuardian Hey good to see another person from Chattanooga (?) that is into AR308s!
  5. Hey everyone! Joining you all from Southeast Tennessee! I have been doing a lot of homework (much through advice given by members) for my first 308 build. I have built several AR15s and enjoy it. With an upcoming hog hunting trip next year, I wanted a larger cartridge to hunt with. Considered a bolt gun, but ultimately decided part of the fun is building a rifle. Naturally it all really started with a sale/good deal on a set of Aero M5 receivers! My build will be: Aero Precision M5 Freedom receiver set Aero lower parts kit, minus FCG Aero upper parts kit Magpul MOE+ grip Larue MBT trigger Armalite buffer tube (lots of reading and listening to 98Z5V's advice/wisdom) Sprinco Red spring Spike's Tactical T3/H3 5.4 oz buffer Magpul ACS Stock Toolcraft Nitride BCG Radian Raptor charging handle Radian Talon Safety Ballistic Advantage 18 inch fluted barrel (rifle gas) Ballistic Advantage gas block & gas tube VG6 Epsilon (stainless/bead blasted to match barrel) Midwest Industries 15 hanguard, M-Lok American Defense Recon 30mm scope mount Primary Arms 3-18x50mm ACSS HUD 308 scope Waiting on upper receiver lapping tool / compound and head space gauges to arrive to start putting it all together. I also got an upper receiver/barrel tool similar to the Geissele reaction rod from Botach https://www.botach.com/kley-zion-barrel-spline-socket-rod-for-ar15-m4-ar10-sr25-upper-receivers/ So that's where I am. Once everything is together, I'll post an update when I get to shoot it for the first time and include some photos as well.
  6. Clymer head space gauges, Midwest Industries 15 in M-Lok handguard, upper receiver lapping tool and compound...almost have everything to start the build!
