You won't regret it. I've got a month or two left til I can take my 5-30 home. I don't take my ears off but with muffs I can't tell the difference between the tone of 5.56 through an AEM5 vs 5.56 through an AEM 5-30.

Everything ordered, including AEM5-22 bored to 6.8.

I did go with the CLE Douglas barrel with SPR (Mk12) profile.

Going to use a PRI Gen 3 hand guard and recce rail for this "what if" rifle.

Now I gotta decide on an optic and mount. Gotta be something modernish like a NF ATACR or a Vortex Razor Gen3.

For the PRI handguard install, do I need to order one of their barrel nut wrenches or will a Brownells Armorer's wrench work?

Looking at the Brownells wrench, it will probably work. Maybe someone else can confirm..

Can't beat the PRI wrench though. Its seems like a helluva lot easier to use with a torque wrench IMO.

Not sure about the spacing on the Brownells. I didn't have an armorers wrench at the time so I got a $5 spanner wrench in town, worked just fine. Easiest handguard install I've done.

I'm 87% sure I didn't buy any special wrench to install mine. It's been so long and my brain no worky, so YMMV.

I did the same thing two years ago, got my AE5 bored for 6.5gr.  It works great, no real noticeable sound increase.

General question about the PRI top rail, I assume it makes the upper more rigid.  Presumably making it more accurate, in theory at least.  

Is it worth the extra weight?

It probably makes the handguard a little more rigid, but won't help with overall accuracy.

It solely exists to bridge the upper and handguard to provide a rail for standard scope rings. No other reason. If you plan on using the ARMS rings, get that rail. If you want a single piece extended style mount like the Larue, you don’t need the rail

So does anyone know if guys carrying recce/spr type rifles such as the H are typically carrying 20 rounders in their load out or 30s? We see a lot of pics with 20s in the guns, but what about the rest of their mags?

Got the rail done last night, hoping to get the rest done this week and built during the weekend.  I really miss my paint booth, painting in the basement sucks lol.
