This is my first midlength upper and stainless steel barrel. I've been holding off until dennysguns advertised this barrel with the gas block which released all my pent up frustrations.

Barrel markings:

Troy irons deployed:

With Aimpoint M2:

With TA31F ACOG:

With Nightforce NF NXS 2.5-10:

Different view:


Noveske 16" stainless midlength barrel, 1x7 twist, 5.56 chamber, M4 cuts, stainless gas block already installed with taper pin and set screw.
Smith Ent. G6A2 vortex flash hider
Larue 12.0 free float rail
CMT M4 cut flattop upper
Charging handle with PRI big latch
RRA enhanced bolt carrier assembly
Troy front and rear BUIS
Preban PWA lower
Magpul MIAD
Chip McCormick 2 stage trigger pack

Ordered on a Friday, showed up on Wednesday morning. Assembled soon afterwards. The barrel is quite impressive. This is also the first time I've owned and installed a Larue rail. Presently all my rails are KAC. I'm sold on the Larue now too. Now that I've officially caught the midlength bug, I'm going to order one of those Operator barrels for yet another upper project. Will it never end???

Thanks to dennyguns and ADCO for the stuff I needed to build this project.

Nice! That's very similar to an 18" Noveske build Wes Grant made for me. Combined with the same MXS 2.5-10 and BH 77gr BTHP I've been hitting 18" steel at 700m consistantly. The quality of components and AR-15 gunsmiths these days is making for some great blasters!

Very Nice.

You will be amazed at how accurate those Noveske Barrels are. Mine still amazes me, and I have almost 700 rds thru it.

FALbert, what kind of QD plate is that on your SOPMOD? I need to get one of those.

GGG QD carbine mount that for the old style carbine stocks (GGG-1012), not for Gen 2 stocks you see everywhere these days. OperationParts has them.

BTW, it's a rainy day where I am. I've been sitting on a Larue billet upper receiver since Tuesday from dennysguns. I'm swapping out the CMT upper and willl post pictures later. The anticipation all week has been killing me!

Thanks, you know that's pretty much what I'm building, part for part except I'll be using LB carrier and an LMT bolt. So how is the performance? What are you seeing it capable of?

Haven't shot it yet. I am going to zero and break it in with some 62 gr Canadian FMJ ammo. Also picked up a box of Federal 75 gr BTHP match, Hornady 75 gr BTHP match, and Hornady 75 gr BTHP TAP. 77 gr seems hard to find. Whatever it likes, that's what i'll stock up on. Eventually I want to get one of those Young NM carriers.

New pics of the rig with the Larue Stealth upper. I have an Operator build coming up and have decided that will sport a Stealth upper too. My 18" middy SPR has a VLTOR MUR upper. It's nice, but the Stealth has that less clunky look.

Bottom pic is not edwin907 or stickman quality. I'm working on it.
