That's decent as far as dented case mouth - I've seen far, far worse, like "half-flattened" on some brass.  Great work on that rifle, man!   :thumbup:

Just a little update. Photo w/ the PA mounted. Zeroed with a laser bore scope in less than 30min & 20 rounds. 100 rounds cycled indoors with no malfunctions to note. MB2 trigger is so nice it set off a 5.56 build. Cant wait to get outdoors this spring.

Just a little heads up to those new here. Listen to 98Z5V, he will not steer you wrong.

Shoot, brother - I'm just glad to see it running, like it's supposed to run.  You did well on that gun.  :thumbup::hail:

So the infection is spreading.... Long story short, a current 5.56 build is yielding enough motivation to build out the stripped upper from the OP, and switch up the 308 lower a bit. I'd like to mitigate recoil, so any suggestions would be appreciated. Current thought is longer gas length, adjustable GB on the upper, and longer stock & hydraulic buffer on the lower.

Since I have a stripped upper, a SA AGB, and dimpling & pinning jigs I may as well.

BTW, 98Z, I like where you're going with the Mod H.

a good muzzle brake will help reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil better than anything else you can do to the rifle, if you ask me.
