Well, now that I've got my carbine complete, I'm looking at getting an upper for varminting. I'm not sure where to start with this and don't know what I want/need to get to accomplish this so could ya'll put up some pics with your setups so I can get an idea of what I'm looking for. Thanks!

DPMMN.... can you post up a pic of the bolt side of that varminter that you had camo'd... just curious as to what it looks like on that side of the weapon... and what is the contact info for who did that for you... looks sweet.... thinking about having my 308 Panther done up in camo....

thanks..

Smokin' pics everyone. When looking to put together a varminter what should I look for? I was planning on using my RRA lower that has a 6 position telestock, but I've heard this is not a good thing to do. Also, what barrel length should I go with, 20" or 24"? Is fluting it a good idea? I'm a newb when it comes to this type of rifle, so ya'll must learn me

nice rigs! What scope is that?

First, I would go with an A2 stock, it's hard enough to get a good consistent cheek weld with a scoped AR, even harder with a collapsible that wobbles.

As for barrel length and profile, that's a little more subjective, some claim that the 24" gives the an advantage on longer shots, and I tend to agree.
Fluted barrels are a little stiffer, and tend to "whip" less.
One big question regarding barrles is twist rate, depending on what ammo you are going to shoot will have a lot to do with how much/little you want.
Generally, the tighter the twist, the heavier the bullet it will stablize.

You will find Zero wobble in a Magpul 93A

I'll take it ANY day over an A2 stock
