gadget228 Posted May 7, 2015 Report Share Posted May 7, 2015 After lurking for several months and following some of the builds going on here I come up with the following parts list to build my own LR-308, I have bought everything but the bolt carrier, two more long weeks before I can afford to get it. This gun has two purposes , I want something that I can target shoot up to 300-500 yards and my better half wants something that she can hunt with. Aero M5 upper with forward assist and door already installed. Vltor BCM Gunfighter charging handle large. Aero stripped lower. Aero lower parts kit. Geissele SSA-E trigger. JP Enterprises Silent Capture Recoil spring. DPMS carbine length buffer tube. Mako Recoil Reducing stock. Magpul pistol grip. Syrac Adjustable Clamp-on gas block. JP Enterprises Enhanced Bolt. JP Enterprises Bolt Carrier ( yet to buy ) Troy Industries Claymore Muzzle brake. Fortis Switch Rail 14" And lastly the barrel, First I got the Rainier Select , 20 inch model in black and when I test fitted It was too long for my needs, I called Ranier and they let swap it out for a Match 16 inch barrel in stainless and this is where the glitch comes in, When I test fitted the Rainier Select barrel I also mounted the Fortis rail and they fit together with barely a seam between the back of the rail and the front of the upper receiver, With the Rainier Match barrel there is a .1.40 mm gap between the two, I checked and checked and the only thing I can come up with is the flange on the barrel extension is thicker on the match barrel than it was on the select. The Match flange is roughly 3.42mm thick, any chance a member here has a Select barrel and can post the thickness of it ? I really don't like the look of this gap and just want to get rid of it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
