I'd like to see some.

i'm thinking about building one up for $hits and giggles. heavy free floated barrel, scoped, flattop is the general idea ive got. ive had my share of carbines and now i want something different.

something w/out a super long barrel (20-22'' tops)

maybe even a really heavy and high quality 16'' barrel.

anyhow, i'd like to see some good ones to help me get a good idea of what i like.

use would be for target and nuisance animals.

lets see what you guys have...

bring on the "Tacticool Rifles"  

matter of fact, i would prefer a nice and light 16'' or so precision AR.  something very accurate, but still handy and light...scoped of course...

This is my current tack driver.  It's a 20", so a little longer than you want, but she works great!

Here's what I have so far. It's an 18" RRA upper. For some reason I keep getting the feeling that I forgot something.[smoke]

What kind of RRA lower is that?
I've never seen a RRA lower in that color.
Is it stock, or have you done something to the finish.

Just curious..

i almost had a SHTPants experience!!

very nice rifles!

now, ive pretty much decided on a lighter weight rifle.  something in a 16-18'' barrel, heavy, but not like some of the super bull barrels ive seen (seen some over 1'' in dia!)

lighterweight stock, midlength free float tube handguards, so i can attach a bipod if i want.  

hmmm...saw one feller's rifle that had the super extended ARMS scope rail, allowed them to put anything from a higher power LR scope to a scout scope or red dot (not at the same time of course ;))  i like that idea...

now im all excited to get building :)

Weight's not too bad on this one, even with the SPR rail along the top.  It has an 18" SPR barrel and good OPS Inc brake.

I haven't taken this one out to the range yet.  I found an older Gen II PRI forend I'm installing right now along with the older ARMS SPR Rail.  I've also installed a Hogue grip to it as well.

Here's mine:



Top is the 20" Armalite HBAR and Eagle Lower;
bottom is the 16" RRA Varmint upper.  Right now the 20" shoots tighter groups...still working on a load that the 16" likes.

[u]Fenian[/u] - What type of "muzzle device" is that you have on your 20".  Looks nice

The RRA dealed I used was coating some recievers & parts with a coating similar to a parkerized finish.  Cannot tell you the exacts on the coating but you can contact him at
[url]www.home-land-defense.com[/url]  he is in the DFW area.  He coated a customers rifle, every part and it looked real good.  He was out of recievers except for that one.  If you want I will get you a close up of it if your interested more in the coating/color..


p.s.  bsbg   awesome link to that thread..

My own humble contribution:


I plan to change it into something a bit more SPR-inspired, as time and funds allow. She's a sub-MOA shooter with Q3131A, and a sub-1/2 MOA with Federal GMM.

[b]Both are Eagle Arms, 16" in front and my 24" in back[/b]

Like the family you have.  You need to seperate your rifles before they wear themselves out.  I bet the action on the 16" is worn out from so many children..  You need to put the Varmiter on safety or unload his magazine, appears he has good aim.
