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! [img]www.auction-pix.com/lane/SPRGreen.jpg[/img]

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] [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=12009[/img] CHRIS

Prosise- 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.. Thx,

prossie, thats a pretty awesome rig... a high school janitor's wet dream! 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. [img]www.auction-pix.com/lane/ArmaSPR.jpg[/img]

Here's mine: [img]http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-5/188491/AR1_1.jpg[/img] [img]http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-5/188491/AR15_3_1.jpg[/img] 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

bmwguy, 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.. Prosise p.s. bsbg awesome link to that thread..

My own humble contribution: [img]http://mywebpages.comcast.net/shooter2_indy/graphics/hbar_right.jpg[/img] 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.

Wolfpack, 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. [sex] [lolabove] Prosise
