Genesis CNC Build Update

Recommended Posts

I finished my Genesis build and finally got a chance to shoot it recently.


Genesis Gen 2 Lower, 

Fulton Armory LPK

Larue Tactical Rear Takedown Pin

Geissele DMR Trigger

KAK Industries 19" barrel in 358 Winchester

KAK Industries double ejector 308 bolt

DRD Tactical SR-25 Takedown Upper

Armalite A2 flash hider bored out to .375"

A1 buttstock, standard 308 rifle buffer and spring.

SLR Adjustable gas block

Nightforce F1 4-14 x 50 w/ Aadmount 

PRI Gas buster charging handle


My general impression is that it's a very accurate thumper.  The recoil is significantly more noticeable than any of my 308 semi autos, despite weighing over 12 pounds.

Once I got the gas block adjusted, function was perfect, although it's really tearing up the brass.  I will probably polish the feed ramps to try to protect the brass, 358 Winchester brass is hard to find and expensive.

All in all, I'm happy with the build, and ordered another upper and lower from them to build another rifle.

Good for you !   yep give the ramps a lil polish and you might wanna get some metal mags so you can tweak the lips and get the cartridges higher and at a better angle    Wash

I suspect after the rifle breaks in and you get the gas block to it's final adjustment (you didn't really think you were done, did you?) the rifle will ease up on the brass. That seems to be the trend with my rilfles.

Well done. You use the bits and endmills Genesis supplied?
