Ive considered building a precision oriented AR for a long time but always kind of talked myself out of it. With @full30nick , @switchpod , @RetPara and @SAK all showing off their precision ARs ive kind of been influenced to build my Colt 6920 into a precision rig, probably something like the Recce concept.
This would be my base, I will pull the barrel , stock , fcg and swap the buffer set up for something heavier. Thats a 13.7" SLR rifle works quad rail , magpul grip and everything else is stock. Hopefully you guys can help inspire me by posting some pics of your builds/rifles? I will probably be asking a bunch of questions about these types of builds (since I have limited experience with precision set ups) so I thank anyone who contributes in advance for any info provided.
It has a shitty 16" barrel with a carbine length gas system. The barrel is the same one off the militaries m4s so its only “ok”. Im ripping the barrel out and selling it ,anyways. I kind of want to build it up to a precision rig.
It is a blackened stainless steel barrel, Ultra Match “SUM” the chamber is cut to the minimum saami specification with in .001 of minimum spec. This means it is dangerous to run anything but high quality measured .223 Olympic only recommend using 5 ammo manufacturers or the warranty is void.
Very accurate, 7.8 pounds.
And just to show authenticity.
Palmetto A2 build with a 16” 1:8 twist stainless barrel free floated. “I can’t say the barrel is from JP” Geissele ssd-3g trigger. NiBx bolt carrier. KNS match front sight post. Strike industry J-comp brake.
Old school A2 20” super bull barrel from DPMS before it was bought by freedom group. 1:9 twist the barrel is so large in diameter it is compressing the heat shielding under the grip. Rifle is 10 pounds!
