update on this build 6 months later. it turns out this rifle is quite the shooter. the Odin Works 18 inch barrel is giving me as good as  .35 to .75 inch groupings if i  do my part off the rest at 100yards!  this is with factory match 75 gr HPR brand ammo as well. it really seems to like this ammo a lot over even more expensive stuff of the same grains. still using the same cheap scope which works surprisingly well, but I did add a Burris one piece mount for it which was a big improvement over the stock cheap rings. i am very happy with the rifle. my buddy has a bolt action Remmington 700 VTR .223 and we compete against each other. so far we are about even on the score but i think i will begin puling ahead of him with this build and ammo.

the important stuff on it:

Sig Sauer M400 upper and lower
Odin Works 18" .223 Wylde chamber intermediate  gas
Geissle SSA-E trigger ( 2 stage 1.5./3.5 lb)
UTG Pro free float hand guard
Magpul UBR stock
cheap chinese glass that works good in good light out to a few hundred yards. holding zero very well


BTW, that's my new Savage Model 10 FCP-SR .308 in the backround. only 40 rounds through it so far but it looks like it will shoot.

That's a helluva frankenbuild. Never thought I'd see UTG and Chinese with Geissele and Odin. Those are great results! I've never used a Odin barrel but I really like the rail I bought from them so that's good to know they are consistent.

yea  it's a bit of a monster. except for the glass, i wanted to put my limited funds into what i thought was most important, ie, barrel, trigger, and free floating the barrel. the UTG hand guards are surprisingly good. i have 4 of them and they are light, reasonably tough and modular with regard rail attachments. some day i want to put some better glass on it to extend out the useable range

here are some of the results. HPR 75 gr match HPBT

I was referring to the glass. I actually have a friend that just used the UTG and I was surprised at the quality for the price.

ETA: Hot damn those are great groups.

Very Nice , I have a UTG PRO handguard, and I like it too. Probably going to buy another for my RECCE build.

i continue to be very impressed with this moderately priced Odin Works barrel. shot only 20 rounds today in somewhat windy conditions. all were sub moa easily, but this one was the best. 5 shot groups, 100 yds, HPR 75 gr HPBT Match ammo, .33 inch group

if you are considering an 18 inch barrel in the $265 price range, make sure you consider this company. i also have a mid gas .223 16 inch Wylde chamber barrel of theirs which also is a performer.
