New guy


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


Been lurking for a bit and have decided to join. Just built my first AR-10 not too long ago using various parts and made my own barrel. I like the fire power much better than the AR-15 platform.


This one is a 338 Federal and shoots great. Just a basic build to get the hang of it. Found out the AR-10 parts are a little harder to find than the DPMS styled rifles. This one is a bit of a hybrid.


Used a Matrix Aerospace matched upper and lower and went from there. 


I do my own gunsmith work and also build prefit barrels for a living for various firearms.100_1102_zpsc9f82633.jpg



Enjoyed that one so now I'm building a DPMS system that will have multiple uppers starting with the 260 as my long range target rifle then a 358 Winchester for the heavy stuff. The new billet lower already has all the best parts on it I can afford with a nice match trigger. I plan on swapping out uppers as needed/wanted. At some point there will be a 6.5x47 Lapua upper made for it just to see how accurate it can be in a AR-10 vs a bolt gun. Probably do a big bore wildcat or two for it too before I'm done with it.


Anyway....this is a great site and hope to spend some time here with y'all. There seems to be a lot of knowledgeable folks here.

Thanks for the welcome!


Here's the latest project.....nearly complete just need a block and tube then put it together.






26" 260 Remington barrel for target work

22" 308 Barrel

The rest is pretty obvious what it is.......It'll be together and shooting soon.

My newest build. It has all the bells and whistles including a 2 lb. Jard target trigger. I will post targets as soon as I can shoot it. I will be putting a Harris bipod on it as soon as it gets here. This isn't a rifle you want to pack around...it's heavy....but it's built to be able to reach out and touch nearly anything you can see without having to get any closer!  ::)
