It is a tack driver. I got it December 2019, right before the market went crazy, when they were still affordable. When I was sighting in the scope on it today, our local Coast Guard detachment was lighting it up at the range the next lane over. Sounded like some full auto M4’s and 9 mm sub guns along with sidearms. Wish they had invited me over!

My first MSR, a 16" BCM upper on a Spikes lower with a long list of decent quality parts and pieces. Since 2012 it's gone through numerous configurations which helped me figure out what I like, what I don't like, what works and what doesn't. I changed the optic mount and muzzle device this past winter so I dragged it to the range to re-zero.  It took some tweaking but now it's GTG again. It made me so happy, I pulled it apart and gave it  a much needed cleaning and thorough inspection.

The old gal still cleans up pretty good...

I have another build in the works despite telling my better half that I was "done for a while". I wanted to try building a well balanced, general purpose, midweight rifle. Hopefully the continuous taper barrel and minimalist stock will help achieve that goal.  Everything I need to finish the build except the barrel, BCG and gas block are here. Criterion anticipates a 2-3 month lead time for the parts. I could probably find the BCM BCG elsewhere but Criterion will check the headspace before shipping. Now it's a waiting game...

The Freedom Edition replaces the large "A" logo on the right side of the receiver with the Stars & Stripes with a unique "Mod Freedom" rollmark and July4 as part of the serial number.

Make sure you get that barrel pinned/welded with a permanent muzzle device that get it to 16", plus. 

Or you are a Felon at 15.999" inches of barrel, even if the device is welded... The VG6 Delta will do it  - if it's permanently attached.  But measure close, before you decide...  Because David Chipman WILL be measuring close.

Absolutely, I should have about .250 to spare. Assuming it meets the legal requirement during mock up, I'll drill for the pin and have a buddy TIG it. 

Thanks for the heads up though...
