Tell me about it....I'm trying to piece together a 7.62x39 build, and you can't even find 15" handguards right now. Not in FDE, anyway. And not for under 300 bucks....I'm looking at you, Geissele.

I love that receiver set, though. Especially that lower. I love that trigger & bcg combo, too. Nice work!

My eyes, it burns

That's a cool abstract, who did it? Would be interesting to see in M81 colors actually. And this is the first time I think that I have ever seen a carry handle upper of any model being used with both a free float and a fixed front sight to that same tube.

How does it shoot?

I'm gonna post this one here because it's the only one where I put together both the upper and lower myself.  733-ish pistol:



Brownells "blem" black A1 lower (the blem is the right side selector markings), RRA LPK, SB15 brace (I've had this so long, it was the only brace on the market at the time ), KAK tube and spacers, MOE-K2 grip.  DPMS C7 upper/teardrop FA/front & rear sights, Brownells BCG, VLTOR charging handle, Doublestar 11.5" 1:9 barrel & FH, gun-show 7-hole handguards.  

I have another lower, identical except for Brownells 2-position buffer tube and M&A CAR stock, that will someday be SBR'd for this upper.  Right now it's got my Wolf A1 upper on it until I can build something out for that.  Waiting for the T91 Tactical stock/buffer tube package to come back in stock...  thinking I'm going to build it on an NDS-1815 lower just for grins and giggles...

Not sure I'm ever gonna build an upper again.  I wanted to do it once, just to say I did, but damn, it's soooooo much easier--not to mention faster--to pay JT at Retro Arms to do it.

I did the paint job. Third time painting an AR.

It's krylon fusion matte black, antique gray, matte sweet fig, and frog tape from Lowe's.

At first I set out to make Swedish splinter camo with different colors, but I've never painted it before so it didn't turn out quite how I wanted.

Still got a unique result that's grown on me since completion. The use of tape on the uneven surfaces and my..... Somewhat hasty, beer fueled painting made for some less than ideal lines when viewed up close lol.

Haven't fired it yet since rebuilding the front end, but it's using the same BRT .70 gas tube and H3 buffer w/standard spring that was smooth and reliable in the previous configuration.

12 inch Mlok handguard from ACME machine I've had in a parts box for a while.
New parts are:
Aero lo pro gas block
Samson HK style front sight
Midwest Industries blast can

Lately I've been getting a lot of enjoyment from hanging out in the garage making stuff and this is a result of that.

Samson rear sight.
BCA Billet carbine upper assembly, they were out of the cheaper standard upper.

This one is a work in progress. I'm still waiting to pick up the lower receiver from my local FFL. I put the upper together this morning while drinking coffee, so I thought I'd share. I'll finish this build when I get that FDE lower.

Aero Precision receiver set. Lots of BCM components. I wanted a lightweight 16 incher with a handguard long enough for my arms(I'm 6'3"), so I chose the Atlas S-One and an AeroP gov. profile barrel.

I like OD. This one started out as a standard Stag M4 upper and lower configuration and I’ve swapped just about everything including the barrel. I posted it a few years ago when I painted it in a Kryptek pattern.

Finished this FDE 5.56 rifle yesterday. Mostly AeroP & BravoCompanyMfg. One-offs are as follow:


BCG: Stag Arms, Nitride
Trigger: Hiperfire EDT HG, Nitride
Charging Handle: Strike Industries, Latchless, Red w/ Polymer ISO Latch
Gas tube, and Upper & Lower Parts Kits: CMMG
Muzzle Device: VG6 Precision, Gamma 556
Buttstock: Magpul MOE, FDE

This one was built to serve as a lightweight DMR. I'll likely soon swap out the Hiperfire trigger for a two-stage, something like the Stern H2S.

My panic build is finally done after about a year. It was horror show of a build, but I think the end result is pretty solid.

Complete rebuild and a fresh paint job.
Link Posted: 5/4/2021 10:23:01 PM EDT
Latest one of mine. Working from home gets boring, ha.

Aero Precision upper, lower, and BCG.
Rare Breed FRT-15 trigger (let's see if its any good)
Gray SBA3 with gray Splitfix
12.3" Ballistics Advantage Hanson barrel
12" Honey Badger rail
BCM grip and KAG
Streamlight Protac light
Aimpoint T2
Vortex 3x magnifier
Magpul popups
Dead Air Sandman S

The barrel and rail combo are perfect. Suppressor even fits inside if you go shorter. Thinking I'm going to build another upper with the same parts but with an 8" 300 BLK barrel to play around with it.

Nice! That reminds me of the M4 a friend of mine carried in the sandbox while he was in the 10th SFG.

So this started out as a  "hey I have a lower and a few detents, what should I do with them" build. Then ammo prices got insane and 7.62 x 39 seemed like a good choice. So this one has been a slow burn over the last 8 months or so.

Lower

Spike's Tactical Crusader - I really like the closed trigger guard and something ironic about building an AR using this lower that shoots the caliber of choice of some of our friends around the globe
Ergo Grip
Radian 45 Degree Safety
Teflon coated milspec trigger (LaRue MBT 2S is on order.)
H2 Buffer
Magpul MOE SL stock
BAD Mag Release
Seekins Bolt Release
BCM QD End Plate

Upper

Aero Stripped Upper
RCA 7.62 BCG - Nitride
Radian Raptor Charging Handle
MI Combat 14" M-Lock Rail
DEZ Arms 16" HBAR Barrell - 1:10 Twist, CLGS, Straight Fluted, .750 Gas Block (Dimpled the barrel using a KAK dimple jig)
Spike's Gas Block
Bootleg Gas Tube - Nitride
KAK .30 Cal Muzzle Break

Optic - Vortex Spitfire HD Gen 2 - 3x

So far only taken to the indoor range last weekend for a function check and optic zero at 25 yards using Tula 124 gr steel case. Ejects at 3:00, bolt holds open on last round, and only had one failure to fire in 100 rounds. Primer looked to be recessed so I am chalking it up as an ammo issue. Initial impressions are this is a fun gun. Maybe not a tack driver (sub inch at 25 yards with steel case so who knows what it will do with decent ammo at 100?)  but certainly better than most AKs chambered in the same caliber. Next weekend we go to the outdoor range and try and stretch its legs to see how it does











Link Posted: 6/17/2021 12:29:31 PM EDT
Put an offset Holosun 509T on my 14.5 recce rifle.  Of course now the optic is $150 cheaper ugh
