DPMS GEN 1 lower compatibility

Ok. NOT one of my homebrews, I just happen to like Guiness. 

So, grasshopper is learning. Tried swapping various DPMS parts into the AP M5 upper. Charging handle is a little sticky in the M5. The dust cover will not close with the BCG forward, the little boss that holds the spring and detent hits the carrier. Can I grind that down a bit to fit? No worries, along with another upper from AP, I ordered a BCG (theirs), a charging handle, a barrel, gas block, gas tube, stock, buffer assembly, and a bunch of other stuff I don't 'member now.

And yes, I got on Amazon and ordered a couple rolls of black vet wrap!

Loaded a Vortex Diamondback scope on a Savage Model 10 in .308.

Twiddling thumbs, drinking beer, and waiting for more boxes!

Indeed, you can. That's a viable solution, too.   :thumbup:

My bad. Was just going thru my notebook figuring out what was coming, from who, and when. I just realized the upper I received today is an AR Stoner A3. Still have an AP M5 coming from Midway, and another from AP.

2 more boxes from Midway today, unfortunately, reloading stuff for 6.5 CM. No gun parts.

Got dies, bullets, brass, and 2 pounds of Superformance. The other box was 8 pounds of IMR 4064.

Spent a few minutes getting the dies dialed in for seating depth and a mild crimp, went ahead and loaded up 50 rounds for a rifle I don't have yet.:bat:

First box in from Aero P. Sweet stuff. Still no lowers or barrels, ask FedEx why.

BTW, if you ever click on FedEx's robot chat thingie, mix a pitcher of stiff margarita first. Drink at least half before you start.

Nope, cheaper to buy it, pretty good brands available here. My present bottle is Hornitos Plata.

I used Me & Mrs. T's, but my margaritas come out pretty pale. I'm sure it has something to do with the dilution ratio.😎
