(And if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you don't have one). [;)] Just wondering who's purchased the 'newest' addition to the 'AR family of rifles'. Your comments about your CAV? [^] Me thinks 'Garryowen' will approve......[:)] Kaliburz

I wish if I had one. If someone will feel it in their heart to send me one I would appreciate it. [:D]

Okay, I had to do some MAJOR digging to find this again.......(as you can see from the date it was originally posted). There wasn't that many hits before, but maybe this time....... Question still stands........

Well, mine will ship with my LEGP - after which, I'll give you a review.

I've got a STRONG feeling I'll have a "working" one soon, to go with my CAV-15 "non-gun". [:D] [img]wsphotofews.excite.com/032/wX/ue/3R/eu27307.jpg[/img] This one is a prototype shortened version, non functional.

Nice yellow..... Gonna have to bring my CAV-15 (both, when the new AR15.com numbered lower gets here) to the local shooting area (in the back 40). Might have to go on the 4th of July or something... make sure lots of people are there to see...... That's if it's not too dry here and another fire starts..... There must be more......it's sunday night, everyone is asleep for monday work day..... maybe I should follow....

tree, i tried to use the picture host you use. I was able to upload photos just fine, but how do you get a link to the photos? I couldn't find the option like on photopoint.
Link Posted: 5/6/2001 10:40:37 PM EDT
Right click on the picture, and "cut n paste" the url. It's under "properties".

How does the weight of a CAV-15 compare with an AR-15 with the same upper and a comparable buttstock? Does the plastic construction make it any lighter?
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 4:48:59 AM EDT
Mine will get here with my LEGP order. My first CAV15 will be the olive drab model, but I can't wait to order one of the yellow lowers too.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 5:37:39 AM EDT
I have 3 and really like them. I'm a little conservative & got 2 black & 1 OD green. Freaking awesome products.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 8:38:58 AM EDT
The AR15.com ser # CAV will be number 2. Waiting for the 'next generation' CAV...... hopefully something like that pic GarryOwen was teasing us w/ over on his forum. (A CAV-15 receiver that takes a traditional buffer tube...... pistol tube in my dreams).....
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 9:13:01 AM EDT
TreeTop you sumbitch... I was going to get a yellow, but I changed my mind. I am getting a Gray one as soon as Shawn gets it ready... Now i'm going to have to get a Yellow one to do that "PowerTool" thing.... LMAO!!!! McUZI
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 10:33:40 AM EDT
Treetop, How did you cut the stock square? What determined the length you used? What did you fabricate your butt plate of? I might just try that on one of mine. Scott
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 11:56:46 AM EDT
I have several. Some are from the original molds. I am a dealer for Cav Arms We had a several colors of the new ones on display at the Tulsa show. Our yellow one was suspended above our display. The pink one was a hit!

I will let you know when my two come in with the LEGP. How did you get your CAV serial # already?
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 4:22:33 PM EDT
Treetop, what is a non gun? Tell me more please! scratch
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 4:27:59 PM EDT
I have two limited edition lowers on the way... Juggernaut
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 5:29:15 PM EDT
Scratch, A non gun means that the lower is not finished enough to actually accept the parts to make it work. It would require extensive work with expensive tools to finish it off. As such it's reall just a piece of plastic that looks like a rifle lower.
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 5:34:24 PM EDT
how do Iget one of these non guns and how much do they cost? Scratch
Link Posted: 5/7/2001 6:16:11 PM EDT
Treetop, is that a Hogue Handall on your "Tool"?

Contact GaryOwen on this board for details. He is the mfg of the lowers & can put on the track. He also has a forum over in the industry forums. Scott

I am Trying... Where can I get one other than the LEGP, I need a stripped one (in yellow, but pink is also charming), I already have all the internal parts…(must be the latest one)

There is none around here... but You have my FFL, right? did you get it? sent on April 12th/01.

I've got an Olive Drab one, I'm awaiting development of OD M4 type HGs and then I'm going to refinish the whole rifle (16" Hbar with DTA Mil-brake, A2 upper) in Olive drab parkote as well. Due to the "top feed" orientation of the selector detent and plunger, I was not able to make it a "milled and drilled" M16. I was forced to use one of my registered DIASs, which thusfar has handled 1200 rounds of russian w/o a problem. D. www.azexarms.com

I cut it on a table saw, with a 10" blade. This kept the cut parallel to the original butt, perpendicular to the top of the buttstock. I just cut where I felt it would be a tad [i]too[/i] short, so I could add material to it if necessary to get the right length. The buttplate is made of .25" ABS plastic, which is textured on one side. Here's some more pics: [url]community.webshots.comXXXXs/editPhotos.fcgi?action=viewall&albumID=13245701[/url]
