btw ... hello and it's great to be back ! I see the boards are alive and healthy.

I've asked this before, however, in light of new/improved advancements in products ... what would YOU purchase if building a new AR style rifle, if money was no object ?

For example :

Barrel

Upper

Lower
<­BR>etc.

What you think is important as I need feedback for a new build ... so don't be shy.


Thanks in advance, and shoot well and often

For example :

Barrel: the most expensive one i could find, lilja or something

Upper: all are basically similar but lmt or something expensive

Lower: something pre-ban just to be expensive or colt or something

etc.: what ever is the most exensive on the list

Damn I'm jelous! While you're at it, why not sling something in 37mm or 12 gauge under the barrel?

Might as well go with the DD and get the 40 mm.

But yeah...Full auto, SBR and suppressed would be the way to go. Probably a Noveske SBR....

Does "money didn't matter" mean "money is available" or "money is nowhere to be found"? I also told my girlfriends that money didn't matter because I had none.

But if money is available and didn't matter how it's spent, I would forget the AR and just buy a few miniguns...

I would only need a AR-15 sticker to slap on the Brand New imported HK-93 that I could throw tons of money at getting one import into the states.

Have you ever run a shorty barrel on that rig? Say a 10.5" or 11"? Just curious.
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 10:44:13 PM EDT
rcoers,

Take another look at M4Madness list, these four items will cover any barrel length that he was to run without problems.

SRT Hurricane Sound Suppressor (read back pressure even on a 10.5" barrel)
MGI Rate/Recoil Reducing Buffer (read not only deals with cycle rate reduction, but allow to slow the shorter barrel spike in regards to mass)
MGI Adjustable Gas Tube (read ablility to tune the gas system with the added back pressure of the can)
Wolff HD Extractor Spring with D-Fender "O"-Ring (prevents the case from being left in the chamber if the gas system is tuned up too high and the rifle is on the verge of overcycling).
