Overall, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. A set of punches, a screwdriver and a little ingenuity to figure out a few tricky springs and stuff was all that was needed (and some very helpful ARFCOM docs and pictures). Took it to the range a couple of times so far to break it in, functioned flawlessly, shot very nicely :)

Specs:
Ameetec A3 upper
BM bolt and carrier
BM 16" superlight bbl (chrome lined, 1:9 twist)
KAC RAS II
Surefire M952XM
forward handgrip (tango down grip next on the list as well as some more panels)
BM? flashhider (Phantom 5 port is in the mail)

Ameetec Lower
BM trigger
First Samco Handgrip (though I don't like this so much - too hard and slippery for my taste)
RRA telescoping stock.
LMT fixed rear BUIS
Aimpoint M2 is on the wanted list too

Oh yeah, her name is Roxanne how

You got one too many http:'s in you pic file names. Ahh, it looks like you fixed it. That's a nice gun.

I was going to get a Mega lower from Ameetec, but maybe I'll get one of their own. It'd be pretty cool to have an AR that says Mesa, AZ since that's were I live.

I just got 2 lowers from them and they are sweet!
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 4:41:03 PM EST
yeah, Im really happy with them. they were super cheap a few months ago... dunno if they are still running their special. Got a sweet group deal on the FFL transfer too :)

Is that a teardrop shaped forward assist that I see?

I think it looks more bad-ass ;)

So what kind of groups are you getting with that toy? Come'on man, we need the details!

Ammo?
Range?
Group size?

nice choice on the G27. I am growing fond of it as well.
But that is a BEAUTIFUL light.

Did that come with the parts kit or was it a special order? I notice you have an A1 FS, so my guess is you chose the pieces yourself.

Are you thinking about optics?

I've just put a few rounds through it, haven't tried for group sizes yet. Maybe this afternoon if anyone wants to hit Deerfield.

That was seperate from the parts kit.

I am CONSTANTLY thinking about optics. I am also thinking about how much blood I will lose after I tell my fiance I spent another $100 on an Aimpoint M2.

Plus I'm considering taking that CQC carbine class, and that runs about the same as an Aimpoint.

Who knows, maybe I'll just do both :)

Uhhhh, dude, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but an Aimpoint M2 is around $350 plus another $100-150 for a highend mount.

Based on that, I reckon you'll be losing a lot of blood during/after that discussion.

That is the correct answer to AR15.com FAQ #328.

I'm not going to tell her that. I thought we had this conversation before I shouldnt need a riser either, because of the hump on the RAS II, right?

Oooooh, now I see. Yeah, you're gonna be getting one of those $100 Aimpoint M2's, I gotcha!

The riser for an ARMS#22M68 is only about $10-15. The mount itself is something like $100-120. (Sorry I can't recall the exact prices right now.)

Also look at the LaRue mounts. They make both a high and low mount (the low is what you'd want).

Though the RASII is not very Eothingy friendly.

LOL.. will do.. I think it's going to have to wait a bit though. I just got off the phone with Milt Sparks, a tuckable IWB holster for my USP was needed before the Aimpoint. Hopefully next month after I get a few paychecks in I can splurge.
