Have had it in safe for a longggggg time. Very little use. Originally, wanted it to be a super duper long range stable heavy gun for ringing steel way out there.

But it was never that accurate. I loaded for it from 52 grains to 77 and never found a really great accuracy. Now i just take my 14.5" pencil bbl that is capable of sub moa and shoot medium ranges with it. 300 -400 yards and it is quite fun.

I was thinking I could change out barrel on this 20 inch 1in9 twist 556 hbar, to a 24" grendel.
Or a friend recommended sbr it. But I'm not crazy about sbr laws and registration and hassle.

What say you

I had one of those.  

Spring 2016 l bought a govt profile A2 barrel from Windham Weaponry and made an A4 clone with a Vortex 3x Spitfire on top. It's now my favorite AR.

Don't sell not worth it in todays market. Just change the barrel, handguard, and gas bblock.

I took a lower like that and went 6.5 Grendel and put a 22 inch barrel on it.  It became an 800 meter nail driver.

But they aren't doing it with a grippod and a foregrip  I kid!

Nice A4!

ETA:  Rebarrel with an 18" 1:7 that likes MK262.  Check out the MK12 barrel from High Caliber Sales.

I have an ALG handguard on it now and it shoots much better than when it wore this houge pos.  Still just a DPMS bullet hose.Attachment Attached File



My point is that a boring old 20" can find new life as a bump saw.

Do a 13.7" with a pinned and welded BE Meyers 249 flash hider to be 16.1" (photos off google) they handle like a SBR but have the barrel size to not legally be one.

Silencershop does form 1's now.  NFA is dumb as fuck, but a handy SBR is never not fun.

Got one similar to that already. I shoot this one 90 % of the time. It's accurate as hell and handy as heck. I actually hit steel at 700 yards once. And regularly at 400.

Stick with the original concept and use this as an excuse to go Grendal.  If it were mine I'd look at something between an 18" and 24" barrel.

You could sell it and buy a new lower for an AR pistol build with one of the fancy SB tactical braces to avoid SBR laws.

Or turn that one back into a pistol if it was built that way first.

Make it a Grendel of at least 14.5" and throw at least a 1-8 or 3-15 up top.

You could make some minor changes, Cerakote it and do a block II build. I should have mine finished up soon.

Put a proper FSB on it, A2 hand guards, have the muzzle threaded and get a removable carry handle.

I'd either get a government profile 20" bbl and a carry handle or get a 300blk bbl.
