  1. I fuckin' hate it, feeling like you have to waterboard someone for details. We here GIVE details. Freely. It needs to go both ways. I'm tired of waterboarding people for info - when most people come here demanding info... Not you, in this case, OP, but we have those fuckheads show up from time to time. Out the details on your recoil system, or else watch it when you make a move on your fridge, for a midnight snack. If we don't get details, I'll be in your fridge one night, waiting for you to open that door, all sleepy and hungry. Then, it get's real, once that door opens and that light inside turns on and wakes me up. I'll leap outta there and climb up your ass like a Spider Monkey, and spread out...
  2. Well... Give up the details on what was wrong, already. If what we said was wrong - what was it that was wrong? You've still never stated whether you have a carbine or rifle recoil system, and what was wrong with it. If it was a rifle recoil system, and you were sent an AR15 rifle recoil system - and they only sent you a buffer to change it - then it's still wrong, and is running an AR15 rifle buffer spring. Not good for a .308AR, by the way... Spill the details...
  3. Anybody here ever buy a new motorcycle, and immediately take apart the engine, measure piston ring end-gap? Check combustion chamber volume? You buy a new bike and test the fuel pressure right out of the pump, if it's EFI? You know, to make sure it's in spec? No, you buy a new bike, fill up the tank, and you go rip that thing. OP, if you don't obviously have something wrong with your gun - then go shoot it.
  4. Don't waste the money on another one. Shoot the gun.
  5. Just wanted to hit on this, for clarification. As far as malfunctions go, that is not a double-feed malfunction. That's a Failure to Eject malfunction. A Double-feed is two live rounds, trying to enter the chamber at the same time, and a Double-feed is always magazine-related. My $0.02. This is a double-feed: The magazine lips, or the magazine spring, can't control how many round it's letting out during the cycling operation, and it launches two. That same mag would launch three - if there was room in the upper to do it. That's double-feed malf, right there. This is Failure to Eject: This is BAD. This is Failure to Eject, AND a Double-feed, at the same time. The only thing worse is a bolt-override malfunction.
  6. His comments on PTSD, I'm behind 100% and then some. I'm the same way.
  7. I didn't know where to put this, and I struggled over where to put it. It's the background of a man, but the background of a business strategy in a way... It's very personal, but very business-oriented. It's more, to me, what they (the company) do for a certain mentality of 'Merica - and if you're not in that mentality, then get your coffee elsewhere, we don't need your business... This is a really good interview, deep into Mat Best, but also into Article 15 Clothing, more into BRCC. This is a good one. I love the title of the vid - "I'm not Sober, I've just learned to deal with it..."

    Very well performed. (I was gonna say "very well done," but it's not well done for the meat... ). Definitely one of the finest cuts of meat, and flawlessly prepared...
  9. Yeah, that's very good on the price. Back when Fulton Armory stocked it (decade ago just about), Fulton would have their largest sale of the year on President's Day, and that barrel would be right around $275.
  10. I'll break this down, for future historical information. This is all from the Mk12 SPR Program, and the original Mk12 Mod 0 gun. And, the innovative Ops Inc 12th Model suppressor. Ops Inc is gone, But Ron Allen from Allen Engineering was the one that made most of those suppressors for Ops Inc anyway - And Ron Allen is doing well these days. The direct replacement for an Ops Inc 12th Model can is the Allen Engineering AEM5 can -that IS the Ops Inc 12th Model, with different engravings. Same can. That IS the Mk12 SPR suppressor. Here's what the barrel profile looks like with the SPR collar on the barrel, and the specs for that are below: the M4 barrel profile. All Colt M4 (and M4A1) barrels had a 0.700" diameter, and they stepped up 0.700" back from the barrel shoulder. To mount up the Ops 12th to the M4 and M4A1, this was the collar that you needed to make that happen - as well as the brake, of course. Here's a pic that shows both the Mk12 and the M4 barrel - with their brakes and collars, to run the Ops 12th/AEM5 cans: If your barrel is perfect on the Colt M4 barrel pattern, and has a true 0.700" x 0.700" step, then the M4 AEM5 Collar will allow you to mount up the cans, properly. Lots of "mil-spec" barrels out there that are not truly mil-spec, and they fuk this measurement up. Don't expect every "mil-spec" barrel to meet that 0.700" x 0.700" true M4 military specification...
  11. Hey man, you can still get this barrel: Fulton Armory no longer has it produced to their specs, By Krieger Criterion. Criterion is not with Krieger any longer, either. Criterion still makes this barrel, with very few minor changes - here's a link: https://criterionbarrels.com/products/large-frame-ar/dpms-pattern-308-hybrid-barrel-rifle-gas-stainless/ It's every single bit, a true match grade barrel. That's why you see the pricetag on it like that. FWIW, that was the original price of the Fulton Armory barrel, too. It hasn't inflated over time. This is the exact 18.5" barrel that I have in my Mk11 build that I linked to in this thread - this is THE barrel. @Matt.Cross has this barrel, too, if I'm not mistaken. https://criterionbarrels.com/products/large-frame-ar/m118lr-308-win-7-62x51-nato/fulton-armory-medium-contour-18-5-308-ar-barrel/ Most accurate .308 Win AR barrel that I own.
  12. Doesn't even follow Aero's lines, not even close or anywhere near. That's a bullshiit seller, right there.
  13. I was politely alluding to that in my first reply, asking for details of his other parts. I'm positive that's what is going on here. We just can't prove it until he tells us what he's using...
  14. My guess is one of two things. If it's a rifle recoil system, it has an AR15 rifle buffer in it, that's 5.900" long. It need a .308AR rifle buffer that's 5.200" long. If it's a carbine recoil system, it's an AR15 system, complete. That means it has a receiver extension with an internal depth of 7.000",and a buffer that's 3.250" long. Torun that extension on a .308AR, it needs to use a buffer that's 2.500" long. I think your buffer is too long, for whatever your recoil system is. I just need the details on the recoil system to confirm this. Spill the details.
