Recently traded off my SP1 as part of a deal for an FN SPR, but have a serious itch to pick up another AR after the ban sunsets. That said, I'm considering the following setups:

A2 or A3 Dissy.

A3 14.5 HBAR with perm FH - think DEA clone.

A3 14.5 M4 profile with perm FH

I'm mostly going to be using this to plink with XM193 and hunt coyotes. I also have an EoTech 512F that I can take off my shotgun and use on the AR. Any suggestions?

Do you still have the 14.5" M4 and SPR uppers?

If so, build a 16" mid-length upper

Well, based on the choices you gave.... I'd go with the A3 dissy.

I dont like 14.5" barrels... just too much velocity loss. Personally, I'd say 16" M4.

But with your choices... definitely A3... if you are gonna mount a dot sight.

I don't think he has the SPR anymore, I remember seeing it for sale. I know I got the M3 MR/T off of it.

What are the advantages of the Dissy over a mid-length? Same barrel length, different gas system lengths, correct?

If you get a Bushy Dissipator, it will have a regular carbine length system. The dissipator's advantages are longer sight radius and the added handguard space further prevents you from burning your knees/legs on a hot barrel or front sight base.

The FN SPR that CornFedHusker is talking about is not an upper (not even an AR)....it's a sniper rifle made by FN and was just adopted by the FBI.....Here is a pic of my work gun, a FN SPR (Special Police Rifle)




Now that CornFed has his bolt gun squared away....let's help the man find out what kind of AR he needs

I also had an SPR Mod 1 upper from Wes. Traded that to munyguru.

Mid length...who makes chrome-lined 1/9 uppers?

The mid-length just uses a longer gas system, correct? Less pressure, less recoil impulse?

I think the FN SPR qualifies as a 12.0 length
