With M193 you're only going to have about 25 yards of effective range anyway, so accuracy is really a moot point.

Sorry for the no help response, but true.

i have a bushy 11.5" heave flutted barrel on my SBR, its every bit as accurate out to 100yards as any other barrel, it just shoots lower because of the velocity loss.

barrel length doesn't have much to so with accuracy. shorter barrels have less whip that shorties.

i was getting about 3 inch groups at 100yards with an aimpoint and south african battle pack ammo, which is not the most accurate stuff in the world.

i acquired very nice groups today (1" group @ 70m)... using iron sights but...........i had some occasional double feeds.....after replacing the old extractor spring with a new one...the problem is gone........

by the way....im considering of using my old Trijicon Reflex sights on top of this...(flat top receiver) using RX23 base...does anyone alreadry tried this?

and also.........why did the Major AR15 company favors selling HEAVY 11.5" barrel? im having thoughts of its WEIGHT during long duration of LEO activities pls. share your thoughts on this. thanks

So........

You are planning on building the gun on 10/29 and get great groups with it on 10/31 at 4:00 AM.

You are fast, my man.

Rather than listen to us tell you about the Reflex, why don't you just tell us tomorrow how you did?

so............ do you think im fast? im fast because i collected so many inputs from this message board & continue with my project... and then i shared to you what i got from your inputs.........

now........before i continue again with my reflex project........im asking again you my Fellow ar15 friends to share your experinces with this because i do believe you have the experinces & knowledge so that i will have an initial info on what to expect when i do this...when i do that...... Thank you
