  1. I have those and they work wonderfully. Also got some for my wife after I tried them out. Easy to have a conversation if needed. Used them extensively yesterday trap shooting on the farm.
  2. I haven’t weighed the 2 or at least I don’t remember doing it but the carbon fiber one is noticeably lighter when holding to the shoulder compared to my Fulton 308.....if that gives you any information. If you’d like me to weigh them I can probably get to it later tonight. Could be the balance with the stocks but I’m sure that barrel is lighter.
  3. I’ve got a .243 carbon fiber barrel. Unfortunately I haven’t shot it very much. I got it a few months ago and sighted it in but it’s only got maybe 30 rounds through it. This deer season I was going to get it set up.
  4. I found this a little humorous. Got an email from midway then an email from target.
  5. I have had not troubles with polymer tips in the ar platform as of yet.
  6. Where did you get the quick attach for the gaurdian hand guard? My guardian hand guard came from Fulton but they didn’t have any thing other than rails to attach to it. As you know it has a slot that you have to slide a backer plate into to hold what you put on. I have been unable to find anything that is “specific” for that guard.....or do these things take some kind of generic modular attachments.
  7. Yes. The trigger is pretty nice. I’ve fired the rifle a few times. I’d take the first coupe shots then after he was at it for a while I “had” to check to make sure it’s still working good to get a few more shots in. Yep. Still working, lol.
  8. I just want to throw this out there because I feel that their service was very much appreciated. I bought my son a one of their youth rascals on April 6th. We went out shooting Saturday for the second time with it. When I went to load it I noticed that the rear peep site aperature was missing....it was definitely there when I cleaned the gun after last time, so it must have happened on the walk up the hill. Great. He still had fun shooting it but it was no way near as easy to aim for him. I called Savage just a few minutes ago and they said they would send out a replacement free of charge. Thumbs up from me and it’s a fun little gun to shoot.
  9. FINALLY my Fulton upper is on the way. 10 weeks of waiting. Will be here on Monday.
  10. If you get the correct stuff (meet spec) then there should be no problem with it functioning. I bought a .243 mutt upper (I don’t know anything about the components on it) and it went through a function check and works on my serialized lower. I plan on this upper going on my 80% lower and there is no reason it shouldn’t function the same with the same lower parts (buffer et. al.). Heck the gas tube in the upper is short and it still functions.
  11. It’s rifle length. Barrel is 20”. I have NO information about anything on the upper. I asked the guy selling it everything (manufacturer of every component or specs) and he said he had no clue about anything on it. So I took a gamble. When I fired it, it cycled shots just as it should and also held open. It was just a function check with 2 rounds. Ejections did not go far and came out well short of 3 o’clock.
  12. I just fired it with my Fulton lower. It cycles to the next round and holds on the bolt catch when empty. Ejections are around 1-2 o’clock and not very far (I was firing from my covered deck when it was raining). Ew. But it is functioning. The upper by it self weighs about 6 pounds 6 oz. I’ll have to check accuracy another day.
  13. I don’t know if I score or got hosed. I went to a local gun show and picked up a complete upper. The barrel is .243 carbon fiber. I took my lower in and it mates up as good as could be expected not being a matching set. Once I got it honest matched my Fulton lower pretty much exact. I think it was a trade in from someone else. My guess is that they couldn’t it get it to cycle and decided to get rid of it. I haven’t taken a shot with it yet but upon my close inspection and the knowledge given to me from this forum noticed a short gas tube. These barrels appear to go for quite a bit of money just on a quick internet search. They wanted around $700 for it. I paid around $600. I’ll shoot it and see if there are any problems but in the grand scheme of things I was going to build a .243 after I did a 6.5 creedmoor. any one know anything about carbon fiber barrels?
