Buget 300 blk build....


Recommended Posts

So I have a whole bunch of 30 cal bullets, and a spare upper, so that's excuse enough to build a new AR.

I plan to SBR this and another pistol I built once my trust is finished.

I have an Ares 9" barrel and BCG on the way, it should be here Thursday.

I have a Primary Arms advanced micro dot to put on it, but with the tubular handguard I'll skip back up sights.

The handguard measures 12.5" so depending on the flash hider/brake I'll need to cut it down a little.

The handguard has an anschutz rail, so accessories are gonna suck, so I made a handstop out of a Glock mag floor plate so I don't accidentally stick my hand in front of the barrel.

The only thing I don't have yet is the flash hider, I'm not sure how I want to proceed.

There is a linear aluminum 1"x4.5" that will eliminate the need for modifying the handguard, but it's $45

I can get a Troy Claymore for $55 and I'll have to take about 2" off the handguard.

Someday I want an AAC suppressor, but no time soon, I can get a 51 tooth for under $90, and I'll still have to mod the handguard. Plus I won't have the flash down range like with a linear.

I'm also looking at a krinkov style, the cheap ones are 1 piece aluminum and don't work as well as the heavy (10+oz) 3 piece steel. Anyone tried these? The cheap ones are $25 the expensive around $50.

Any recommendations on the brake/hider?

I did a 9" rail on the same barrel.  The rail (mounted) is longer than the barrel.  I used the AAC Single Chamber Brake.  It can be a little tough to find, but Midway had it in stock for around $55.


Works like a damn champ.  <thumbsup>

Ok, more than a little PO'd right now, it took 10 days from the time I placed my Ares Armor order to the time of its arrival, and I was ok with that. (3 days to ship, 7 to arrive, less than a 900 mile trip)

So my barrel, BCG, and gas tube arrive today and I'm getting ready to install it on my upper and I inspect the bore, and there's a lump of something in there. It looks like a lump of coating. I run a brush several times, and it doesn't budge.

So I call customer service and they want to send a return label, have me send it back, and after they receive the return, then send me my replacement.

So if turn-around remains constant I'm looking at 30 days from order placement to final assembly.

I did point this out, and the replacement is being sent WITH the return label, but under threat that I'd be charged for both if the other doesn't arrive.

I know I have heard a lot of good things about them on here, but right now I'm not too terribly happy.

Hey, what's the bottom of my Sig SP2022 magazine doing at the bottom of your handguard?  <lmao>  <laughs>



It's a Pearce mag extension from a Glock. The handguard has a schuetzen rifle slot and it's not to conducive to modern accessories. So I had to improvise a handstop.

Shot it this weekend!  put about 100 down the pipe.


I can't stop smiling!


I sighted the red dot high at 25 yrs, and dead on at 25 with the Matech rear at 200.


I eyeballed the front sight mounting just right and only had a little front sight adjustment to get it on.


Once I settle on a load  I plan on a 50 yard zero with the red dot, and I'll see what the matech will do at it's different elevation settings.


 a few chambering problems, in the first 5-10 rounds I contribute to the bolt being super tight in the carrier. a huge slathering of oil and she ran flawless for the rest of the session.


I'll break out the FDE paint this next weekend.
