The Rifle:

- RRA mid-length, chrome lined barrel with lightweight profile from Adco
- Troy MRF-M
- RRA enhanced bolt carrier
- H buffer
- Wolfe extra power recoil spring
- MagPul buttstock
- Accuracy Speaks trigger
- Vortex flash hider
- Aimpoint CompM-XD with QRP mount
- Larue BUIS

How it shoots:

20 rounds Black Hills remanufactured 69gr fired on an indoor 50 yard range from a sandbag sitting on a bench that was on wheels and rocked from side to side. Barrel had 250 rounds through it before firing this group and the bore has not been cleaned except for a couple passes with a boresnake when it was first assembled.

Is the barrel 14.5" + the Vortex, or 16" + vortex?

How do you like the TROY rail systems?

They look pretty damn nice to me.

No, the LMT upper is going on a Colt lower. This one is an RRA upper on a DPMS lower.

I really like the Troy handguards. Easy to install, very stable and the fit and finish are perfect. They're tough to beat especially for the price.

That thing sucks ass!


J/K I love it! And have had the pleasure of shooting it. Get lane 11 or 12 next time and use the good table I'm certain that it'll get even better groups but I'm not complaining about thoses ones at all.

It's a very well balanced and thought out AR !

oh and well done on replacing the houge with the magpul once it comes out... i'm really considering getting one but i think i'll have to wait until giffman gets one so i can try it out

Yeah, looks remarkably similar to mine...should though, we used almost all the same accessories. Great minds think alike, huh?

Yeah, and so do ours!
I like the look of the ACOG on there. I've been thinking of doing that too but it'll be a few months before I'll be able to afford one.
