Former 11H Posted June 11, 2022 Report Share Posted June 11, 2022 If this isn’t the right way to ask others for advise, please tell me. I’m happy to follow your protocol. I’m in the process of gathering parts for this AR .308 build and would like help in choosing and sourcing a few components. One of the reasons for this build is that I had major shoulder surgery in December, right side of course, and I would prefer an AR platform to replace my bolt action 308 deer rifle and hopefully have less felt recoil. I also want one with more oomph and a straighter trajectory than my 300 blk. I am starting with a stripped lower from 80% arms, a stripped M5 upper from Aero Precision, 16” barrel, BCG, low profile adjustable gas block .750, melonite gas tube, and upper parts kit, extended mag release button, all from Aero Precision. Lower parts kit and fire control group from 80% Arms. I’m waiting for the jig from 5D Tactical, and if that doesn’t come before the changes in definitions by that three letter agency, I’ll buy a serialized lower from AP. My first question is, can I run both super and subsonic ammo and sometimes put my Sig TI 7.62 QD can on it, and have it run reliably? Second question, do need an adjustable buffer assembly? I know nothing about spring tensions and buffer weights, lengths etc. Third question, has anyone used vented charging handles for running suppressed? Are they a gimmick or is it worthwhile getting one? I haven’t ordered a barrel shroud yet. The one I want is back ordered at AP. Nor have I chosen a stock, although I’d like a collapsible one with an adjustable cheek pad. I started this with the intention of getting just enough components to make sure I could build this once the changes have gone into effect. I figured, over time I’d buy more parts as I could afford them, but I’ve gotten carried away, as you do, with any new exciting project. Thanks for any help you guys can give me, and again, I really hope this is the right way to ask for help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
