    Illuminated reticle

    i am jealous of those out west that can shoot like that. too many trees and people back east for that.

    6.5 Grendel almost done

    when i was researching a grendel build, the only downside i could find was locating magazines that work reliably. i've only bought 2 mags for mine so far - both ASC 15 rounders. i read some reviews that said to run them with 14 rounds instead of 15, but they both functioned fully loaded for me. i've done some playing around and i think i can use a regular 10 round AR mag if i only load 7. i use a larue mount on 6.5 creedmoor, they're super expensive but damn are they worth it.

    Battle Arms Development trigger

    wait a minute, did you even read the first review from the rainier arms site??????? no more discussion needed. hahahaha. Joshua G. Verified Buyer 5 star rating 12/20/18 Smoother than a raccoons hands cupping my shaved testicles Honestly what can I say that would convince someone else to take the chance on this trigger. I was initially aroused during the install. As soon as I hit the range still with the chub I had from install... I knew things were about to get locked and loaded. I grab a mag loaded with 300 Blackout (subsonic), insert slowly into my AR as to savor every moment of what is about to be the most intense pleasure I’ve ever experienced. I pull the charging handle back, steady and smooth. Then release it to feel the BCG chamber the sexy round from the mag. I raise my gun up, shoulder it and put my sights on the target. Slowly raise my thumb along the side of my lower receiver and slip my pistol build into pew mode. It’s time.. I prepare my finger over the trigger, gently hovering just against it. Fire when ready, I think to myself. Boy was I not ready. I squeeze the trigger as I would squeeze my nipples during a long hot bath... holy balls wouldn’t you know it... I feel the most sensational gungasm I can barely contain myself. I check my pants just to be sure I haven’t shown my excitement too soon. I’m clean.. fire when ready again, I thought. Trigger pull after trigger pull the blood in my body worked it’s way toward a specific part of my body.. I finish... shooting and clean up.. all the brass.. my work was done. The triggers work was done.. so yea.. id recommend it I guess.

    Battle Arms Development trigger

    good to know. as for the trigger, it better be orgasmic for $230. i have a geisele ssa-e that i got from primary arms during one of their sales for $180. it's 100 times better than a run of the mill LPK trigger, but i'd have been pissed if i paid $240 for it. i dont know what all the fuss about geisele is.

    Battle Arms Development trigger

    i'm sure it's good to go. rainier isnt going to sell sh!t products. i have never come across a drop in that i didnt like. i've got timeny's, a POF and a CMC and they're all great. waited til they were on sale and got great deals on all of them.

    6.5 Grendel almost done

    very nice, i just finished my own grendel on xmas day last year. i was literally looking at that same exact scope for mine last week but ended up going with a athlon 4-14 after finding a good deal on it.

    Is the FSP gas block outdated?

    i have it on one of my rifles. i like the free float rail look the best though. plus, i usually run an optic on my ARs and the FSB just gets in the way. but to answer your question, of course it's outdated, stoner designed this thing in the 50s and 60s.

    Just arrived from NC

    yep, that's the great thing about AR's. buy a piece here and there and one day you have a complete rifle. not to mention, i was looking through my parts bin one day and realized i had a complete unassembled rifle in there. i just had to buy a charging handle. haha.
  10. mainly i have a severe case of BRD (black rifle disease). i have them in 5.56, 9mm, 6.5 grendel, a 7.62x39 about 75% done and of course my creedmoor which brings me to this forum. there's nothing better than mag dumping 20 rounds of 3.08 as fast as you can pull the trigger. i can't do that with my bolt 700.

    My First AR Build

    i have several upper vise blocks, but my favorite is hands down my geisele reaction rod. it only works on AR15s though. for my LR308, i use this: https://www.guntecusa.com/dual-ar-5-56-308-cal-upper-receiver-aluminum-vise-block.html got it on sale at primary arms for less than $20 if i remember right.

    Cheap QD AR rifle slings

    i'm with blue, i hope they last, but i only buy the good buttons as well. as for straps, blackhawk makes a 1.25" sling that sells for $10 at my local gun store. i have it on my remington 700 and several AR's.

    Just a little more paint

    no thanks. looks like a custom lower that someone milled out. and then there's the AK grips
