Here's a sneak peak at the AMEETEC 6.8 SPC Rifle in Coyote Brown. It's a prototype. What do ya think?? It shoots so so so smooth and accurately. WOW!!

Looks like I'm gonna have to talk to Warren soon. Any idea what his prices will be like?

So do AMEETEC's 6.8 uppers have M4-type feed-ramp cuts, or are they "a marketing gimick [sic] from Colt" for the 6.8SPC too?

Here's my thoughts on how to improve it:

Ditch that scope. If you must mount a scope, get higher rings and a better scope.

Bead blast that muzzle brake.. It's too shiny, especially on that matte barrel.

Get a brown VFG, to match.

Geez, the Trijicon Accupoint is good enough to win Tactical division in 3Gun, but not good enough for this guy's gun?

If you get higher rings, you'll have to use a chin weld.

It's a good scope and it's already on a riser. If you get higher rings, you'll have to use a chin weld.



Agreed. The scope should not be any higher. It looks like it will be a little to high to have a good cheek weld already. The Accupoint is also a good compromise between a variable scope and an ACOG for somewhat quick use.

Don't knock the chin weld, it works for this guy..

Link Posted: 10/22/2004 8:44:58 AM EST
I say again, ditch that scope.

Regarding height of the sights, if it fits, leave the height alone.


I'm not sure I said this yet, ditch that scope!

Nice rifle Warren and on that quote.

Dump the POF thing, the side charge upper, rings and the stock and you have the basis of a nice rifle.

Pretty cool. I love seeing more manufacturers getting behind the 6.8 SPC. Now, who made the barrel?

That is one sweet looking rifle.
Link Posted: 10/22/2004 4:07:53 PM EST
To buy a complete from the factory gun i would like the barrel and comp to be black ,FF rail system height thats ideal for acogs,and will co wit irons with EOtechs ,and be able to have more than one length barrel to choose from.That and ammo availability is all thats holding me back.

A flat-top receiver properly mounts both of those without the need for a fore-end rail system... just FYI.

Ok, your opinion is valid. Just give us the reasons you don't like the Accupoint. {erhaps his intended purpose differs from your. Perhaps his experience with the Accupoint is different from yours. At least tell us why you don't like it instead of giving the advice of ditching it without giving an explanantion as to why.

Personally, I'd prefer a barrel and comp to be green or brown. Anything other than black or bright and shiny silver.

Scope is too low to the rail, other than that, sweet.
My scope is in high rings on top of an ARMS19 it sits perfect height. Regardless of the 1/2in rise out of the predator rail, that scope still sits to low(IMO). But if it works for you, thats what matters.

Geez you guys are picky! the color, the rail, the grip, the scope... I'm just happy there's another option for 6.8 besides a) Model1 Sales and b) the uber-tactical but uber expensive MSTN model. I mean, we all know that in the end, the optic, color, rail, etc. will be the purcher's choice, right?

If Ameetec keeps pricing in line with their current offerings, I'm quite happy and will be awaiting production to submit my order for AT LEAST a barrel and bolt, and since I would have used an Ameetec upper for the build, maybe the whole thing.

I LIKE it...
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 10:29:59 AM EST
Moly coat the upper and lower to match the furniture and would be one sharp stick.

Hows yer head position with that scope?
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 5:47:39 PM EST
For a magnified optic, it is mounted much lower than military snipers use like on the SPR's, etc. The POF is higher tham 1/2", but even then, med. rings would be better for all round shooting, especialy if you don't have time to snuggle down and in with a very tilted head.

How do you like the side-charging upper?

Jack's back!
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 12:11:18 PM EST
Ok, a few technical questions not regarding the scope.
First, is the side charging upper reciprocating (does the charging handle move back and forth with every shot) and if so, is it possible to get the upper with a regular charging handle?
Second, will the upper by itself without the lower?
Third, is it using a midlength gas system or does it have a carbine length with a low profile gas block?
Fourth, is the barrel turned down under the handguards?

and most importantly...what's the price?
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 12:23:31 PM EST
1. Is that the predator rail thingy?
2. side charging... neat!
3. 6.8... neat!
4. how much?

I would really like to have the option to go midlength since all the Model 1 Sales ones are either rifle length or carbine length. I know the Barrett M468 uses a midlength but that upper costs more than most complete rifles. What I'd really like to see is a complete upper with the rail system and BCG for around $650.
By the way, compliments on a non-reciprocating side-charging upper. The reason I ask is that one of the gas piston uppers out there (the name escapes me) uses a reciprocating one. That's just what I need, a big long metal rod going back and forth when I fire. It might work on a semi-automatic shotgun but not a battle rifle.

I agree with all the above.

Prefer midlength and hope to see complete uppers w/ predator rail for not-too-ungodly price.

For what it has, not really. An Ameetec Tactical Master in 5.56 costs $1395. The Predator P-4 runs $230. $1395 + $230 = $1625. So for $70 more you're getting a rifle in 6.8 SPC. I call that a bargin. I'd just like to see that upper available by itself.

By the way, thanks for keeping it midlength!!!!
