I am thinking about making a new upper because I want something a bit more custom than my BM 16 car HBar chrome lined. This may sound weird but I am looking to make a sort of hybrid, a mix of the accuracy of a varmint gun and the look and feel of a tactical carbine (Lights, Lasers, Aimpoint and tactical grip).
This is what I was thinking about so far:
-Rockriver flat top upper.
-Wilson 16’ stainless steel carbine cryoed and fluted (I am not looking to fluting to make the barrel stiffer or vent heat better, I am looking to bring the weight closer to the weight of a profile barrel without the extra whip that can come with a profile barrel.)
-Troy floating rail system
Of course I read all the time that the difference in accuracy will never be noticed by the average shooter, but I really want it this way so I have myself to blame for a bad group.
What do people think?? Am I going in a bad direction?? What else would you suggest other than a varmint gun?
When I saw the topic I was thinking a gas/electric opperated system, .
The Wilson Barrel may be more money that it performs, I know their guns are.
