[Last Edit: 11/26/2003 5:35:56 PM EDT by new-arguy]
I've been piecing together a new rifle for a few weeks now. Finally got the last piece on it tonight and went by Hawkeye's to take some pictures of it. His camera is way better than mine. So is his tv set and wifes cooking!!!

Anyway, its not really a traditional SPR in most senses. I sort of just wanted to have some fun with this one. I feel its most useful at shorter to mid ranges and is more handy than my other 20" SPR.

While I havent been out to shoot it yet, so far Im really liking the way its coming together. Here's whats in it;

Bushmaster A3 upper with 16" 1/9 chrome lined crowned HBAR. Bushmaster lower with RRA National Match trigger, Houge grip and Vltor A1 clubfoot modstock with their slip on rubber buttpad.

ARMS #59 rifle length SIR (that I paid for BTW ) with a Knights flip up front sight and Knights low profile gas block (wow, that thing is small), #40 rear sight, Harries BR notched leg bipod with the ARMS #17 throw-lever and pod lock.

Its topped with a Trijicon TA11 ACOG with a ARMS #19ACOG double throw lever mount. Now I'll get to see what all you TA11 freaks are harping about!!!

I'll get out to shoot it a little on Sunday, hopefully get it zeroed in and see a little what it can do. I'm hoping for some decent results. A custom barrel may be in its future? Here's some pics!

While we were taking the pics, we were attacked by this assualt hampster. He put up a tough fight. We ended up calling a truce, and signed an alliance treaty with him.

I am wondering... between NEW-ARGUY and HAWKEYE... how many ARS do you cats own anyway?

"piecing together a new rifle for a few weeks now" I know peole who take a year or more to afford some of the high end toys you are a sportin there. I don't know stuff like this makes me think the LMT upper is the answer to all of this.

I remmeber when all I had was a Bushmaster 20" A2 HBAR... I saw the Gunsite AR video. The guy had a 16" skinny barrel, an old Aimpoint and a old Surefire light. I swear, I would look at that thing and be in awe... I thought to myself, man, I will never have an AR as cool as that.

Its not really a whole new gun, Im using an old lower and a upper I got for mega cheap. The rest of the gear I had to sell a couple of older guns I had and was not using.

Very nice!  I'm about two weeks out on a similair project. The only difference is the stock(A1), barrel(1n8" 16"Hbar) and front sight(clamp PRI)
sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Now I'm wondering about the front sight, ?

Any problems getting those SIR's to fit over the true gas block???

I have a Dissipator and was thinking of doing something similar but using C-More Quad Rail.

How much weight do those SIR's add???

Yes it is. I absolutely LOVE it. Its part of my emergency gear. It does hold 3 mags. I dont see how you could fit 6 in it. It has two spare attachment points on either side. I have a spare pistol mag pouch on each side. Still have two open slots. Going to put a pouch on one side for a surefire light. Not sure what I am going to put on the other side, if anything.

He is a pick of me and New-arguy at one of our shoots. We both have them. I am really sold on it, its well made and VERY functional.

Better yet, the term "walking gun" is aptly aplied.

Need to do that to one of my own rifles, atleast getting a SP1 type carbine barrel and matching it with a freefloated forend like PRI or ARMS.

Sure beats the anti-walking gun I have now for squirrel shooting, a 48 inch long 15 pound(unloaded weight) accurized AR15.

Link Posted: 11/27/2003 6:31:23 PM EDT
I actually had a problem getting the SIR to fit over most gas blocks. Hawkeye has had a set up like this for longer than me and I knew it would fit over the Bushmaster shaved gas block that comes standard on their Dissipators, V-Match... etc. But This upper started life as a 16" carbine, so it had a standard front site.

I called Bushmaster to buy one of their shaved front sites. But that was a big dead end. They will not sell them seperate. They only sell them fitted to the barrels they sell them on. So... I knew it would fit over a Knights mini gas block, but I wanted to see if I could save a few bucks. I looked around for a gas block that was small enough.

Most companies are selling gas blocks with rails on the top, and I knew they would be too big. Olympic Arms had a somewhat low profile gas block, so I bought one of them. It was too fat!!! Top and bottom clearance was fine, but the edges of the Oly Block were too fat.

So in the end I just broke down and bought what I wanted from the start and should have gotten to begin with. The Knights low profile gas block. If you have a Dissipator/Bushmaster shaved front sight to begin with, you're good to go. If not, I siggest going with the Knights.

The SIRs dont add as much weight as they look and I really doubt they add much more if any extra weight over something like the C-More tube. And the many, many advantages something like a SIR offers over any of the many other railed FF tubes on the market makes any difference in weight inconsequential in my view.

Wes, glad you liked the term. I'd been toying around with the name for a while and settled on SPRbine after a few variations of the same. A few of my friends have taken to it as well.

Hawkeye are those CQB's magazine pouches?
At NEWARGuy's recommendation I grabbed a CQB
chest carier, but in black, and wanted a mag pouch but wasn't sure how well the CQB pouches would mate up.  How solid are they to the body?  Is there any bounce?  Do you think a 6P would fit in one on?

Thanks in advance.  Nice rifles guys, yes SIR.

Link Posted: 11/28/2003 6:12:39 AM EDT
Yes, they are CQBS pistol mag pouches. They attach VERY securely. I havent noticed any bounce/flop to them so far. My G2 Nitro wont quite fit in them. I am planning on getting one of SOE's pouches that are specifially made for Surefires for it, unless CQBS comes out with one before I get around to it.

Thanks for the info.

I don't think it's worth it to fuss with my Dissipator.  There's also the minor issue of the front sight/dummy gas block.  And the major issue... I don't have a flattop upper on my Dissi.

I think I'll start with a new 16" [b]fluted[/b] V-Match upper, then build up from there.  

Where did you get the full length SIR's?  What's the current market price?

Dissipators RULE.  I can't imagine having any other configuration.

I think the ATF and US State Dept might want to talk to me if I brought the muzzle device though.


Maybe if I get some spare time this year before our trip I can swign down in the Jun-Jul time frame with a pile of uppers.

hey new-arguy,

 First off, like everyone else has said, awesome rifle.  Your rifles never cease to amaze me.  They're always great and you can tell that a lot of thought and time has gone into each one, instead of just buying the newest most expensive new gadget.

Second, the main reason for my post, I'm curious about the Harris bipod, the 6-9 length in particular.  Is this going to be used primarily in the prone position or on a bench?  I have been triyng to decide on what length of bipod to get and was curious why you chose the 6-9".  Thanks for your help and thanks for all of the time and energy you invest in the site. Later.

Nice middie.

Hawkeye, I just tried to get 2 mags in each pocket, I got them in, but they are tight.  I'd prefer the single sett up anyway, 6's very weight forward, and the 3 mag limit was one of the things I liked about the CQB version.  If I need 6 mag's, I want a partner carrying the extra 3.

Kevin if you want to split the ride, I'm game.

When I built my first SPR, I ignored the advice of others, thinkning the low bi-pod was going to be too low for my needs, so I bought the longer model (sorry dont know the lengths off hand). After two times out shooting it, I sold it and bought the low bipod.

From prone the longer bipod isnt bad and is quite usable. From the bench it was worthless. I had to prop the stock of the rifle up soooooo high to meet the  height of the bipod. I usuallywound up taking it off all together when shooting from the bench.

When I went with the lower (BR) bi-pod, everything was much more natural. Prone is fine, bench is fine, everything is fine. I have to say however, I lie pretty low to the ground while shooting from prone. My body stays pretty flat and there is not much of an arc, if any.. in my back. I really preffer to shoot from this position than shooting from a bench and I tend to shoot better as well.
Link Posted: 11/28/2003 8:36:35 PM EDT
In the feild the taller bi pod gets you above tall grass and allows you to see and shoot over rolling terrain.  I make it a point not to shoot from a bench, as I need all the practice I can get at practical (real world) shooting.  Unless I am sighting in or testing ammo etc. I see a bench as a waste of time.

YMMV

I shoot prone, sitting, kneeling, (very occassionally) squatting, and standing.  
IMHO the long bipod puts you up to high in the prone

I actually had not thought about a sling for this rifle... we'll see. I did get a chance to shoot it last weekend and was pretty happy. I got the irons zero'd and took some shots with the TA11. I only had a chance to shoot it at 50, and it wass before I put the RRA trigger in, but even so, the results were great. I'll have some pictures to post later.

Hawkeye,

I see you have both a carbine setup with a #58MOD and the #59 Dissipater.  How would you compare the two, as far as handling?  Does your carbine with the #58MOD have a 14.5" or 16" barrel?
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 12:23:26 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 12/10/2003 12:46:53 PM EDT by Va_Dinger]
"SPRbine" is catchy, but hasn't this configeration already been named? This is the exact same configeration (16" barrel marksman rifle) that the U.S. Navy SEALS call the "Recon rifle". Current Military issue SPR rifles have 18" barrels, the SEALS requested a 16" from CRANE. If I remember correctly it uses all the same parts as the 18" CRANE built SPR, just with a 2" shorter barrel.

They both handle great to me. The #58MOD Carbine is my CQB gun, and is a tad lighter. It has a 14.5 inch barrel. It is probably a tad quicker handling in very close quarters. The #59 Dissi, my UCR, has just a really commanding, confidence inspiring feel to it. Feels like a real rifle, and not a toy. Hard to describe either one of them. I love them both.

Where did you get your Harris bipod and ARMS#17?
Is yours the HBBRM model and can you quickly explain the pod lock to me?

I just started looking for a Harris for my new M16 USMC 20" replica (AR15 USMC) I decided that HBBRM was probably the best bipod for me.

Is that a fluted HBAR?  Is it full profile under the DD rails?

I admit to not knowing all the different Harries BiPod models. What I can tell you is that it is there BR (Bench Rest?) model. The one in this pic has the notches in the legs.

You can get Harries bi-pods that either swivel left to right, or that are stationary. If you get one that swivels, you can put something called the podlock on it. Without the podlock, the bi-pod has a rather small and difficult to access knob that will tighten or loosen the tension of the swivel feature. The Podlock replaces this difficult to use knob with a lever that is MUCH easier to use. Throw the lever one way and the bipod locks into place. Throw it in the other direction and the swivel will loosen.

The ARMS throw lever for the bi-pod is actually called the #32, I made an error when posting. I need to go back and correct that.

You can get all of this gear from Wes and Paul at [url=www.mstn.biz]MSTN[/url]. They are the best in the business!
