I am wanting to build a AR 15 in .204 caliber. I would like a super accurate setup, thinking of going with a 24-26" barrel from AR15barrels.com and building the gun myself.

My question is, do the .204 ruger AR's use standard AR15 .223 parts? Like the bolt/upper/magazine? Anything you have to modify? Tell me everything I need to know about a .204 ruger AR.

Thanks,
Josh

Have a .204 barrel for an MGI rig here and the bolt and mag are all .223......So change the barrel and shoot away.

AWSOME! Thanks, I thought that from what I had read before that the barrel was the only thing different than a .223

I have contacted AR15barrels.com to see about getting the barrel.


Is it sad that today the final part for my beowulf came in, and this evening I bought another lower to start yet another project?

I understand all too well. Just finished a rifle and now I have two others in the works. My wife is going to leave me...I just know it.

Check out White Oak for a barrel. Made from a Pac-Nor blank and considerably cheaper.
