How do you like the magpul acs stock vs. the ace skeleton stock? Trying to decide right now on which one to put on a build.

OP, you forgot to list what uppers/lowers/add-ons/accessories/optics you be running. Well, maybe not uppers/lowers (no sense in starting a pissing contest) but what optics do you run mostly? Are those Aimpoints, or the Aimpoint clones/step-brother e.g. Vortex Strikefire?

Here are some pictures of my Spike's Tactical AR-15. I am still playing around with various different configurations and am open to comments/opinions. It currently sits with the standard hand guard that came with the rifle.

i am looking for a decent optic for my ar, red dot / holographic , something for quick targeting, im a ak47 fan at my core but i just started getting into the black guns, purchased my first one about a week ago
any sugestions for sights?

nice rifle what kind of optic is that on top?

I like my aimpoint T1. I believe it is in many ways the cream of the crop. If I wanted to save money I'd look at an aimpoint pro.

Its a Bushnell TRS. At $100, and being not-yet spoiled by using a superior optic, it seems to work quite well. It sits atop a UTG riser for co-witnessing.

diesel
March 16, 2012, 02:39 AM
i like the price tag on the bushnell trs, i will also check out aim point pro.
thanks guys i will check back on this thread tomorrow, well later today
the ar i will be putting the optics on is a new panther 5.56 nato sportical
as i said earlier i am new to ar,s so the price was right and i like the gun it shoots great with a 4 - 32 i have on it now.
i put it on just to get a feel for the rifle. i love my ak,s but this is a great little coyote zapper i know allot of people down the sportical for not having a dust cover/forward assist but i am just going to the range or setting on a 500acre cattle farm killing coyotes we have way too many coy dogs getting to our calfs
plus its a blast with the ar platform its lite and short easy to carry on the farm

thanks guys

Those AFG's are all WAY forward of where I'd put them.

I have 2 so far. A Colt and a CMMG/New Frontier dedicated .22.

Take 'em out, get 'em dirty. (Colt upper on a New Frontier Lower)

Heh yeah I was thinking you must have arms like a Sasquatch to use those afgs. I'm 6.5 and mine are several notches closer

Nice rifles though. Have you shot them much? Make them all at the same time?

GI_Jared
March 16, 2012, 09:36 AM
I'll play, so far I have two. One is a standard 20" DPMS that I am slowly turning in to a match rifle. The other is a 16" mid-length with a .223 wylde chamber 1-8 twist, mostly PSA parts. The optic is a 1-4 Mueller Speedshot.

Both my afgs are mounted forward. it makes for a faster swing. Also I have Troy exteme forends that are 15" on my primary 16" ars.

Location of "hangy ony" things is where they work best for the user.

Those AFG's are all WAY forward of where I'd put them.

They are intended for a certain kind of stance, support hand way way forward, head down and body squared. I'm 5'7" or so and my support hand naturally falls just past the gas block on a carbine length system.

I like this little fella bunches.

diesel
March 16, 2012, 06:05 PM
that is one wicked looking rifle:D
what kind is it?

Sam Cade
March 16, 2012, 06:32 PM
what kind is it?

It's a mongrel.

SBR lower, an early M&P15. Non-ramped barrel and upper. Barrel is a medium profile 11.5" 1/7 twist. Muzzle device is a PWS CQB comp, gas block is VLTOR.
Forearm is a modular Troy TRX-E 11". Magpul AFG1 to keep me from shooting my finger off. I like the AFG1 better than the AFG2.
Badger charging handle with RTV silicone "gas buster"
Troy front and rear sights, EoTech, no riser and absolute co-witness.
Lower has a LPK that I found in my sock drawer, MagPul trigger guard and MIAD grip.
Stock is a RRA "entry" stock with a Troy ambi QD sling swivel. This adds 1/4" to the LOP and makes it perfect. I don't like adjustable stocks, just put one on that is the correct length for the intended use and forget about it. H2 buffer.
I've dyed most of my P-mags that brick color (sunshine orange actually) so I won't lose them. :D


I originally built this as a dedicated HD rifle, hence the fat barrel and the enormous PWS dogknot, weight was a non-issue. But there was a certain synergy in the way it handled and shot so it ended up doing yoeman duty. I drag it around most everywhere now.

I've killed half a dozen or so coyotes with it, accuracy is quite good, it will keep 10 rounds of BH 77gr OTM under 2 inches.

diesel
March 16, 2012, 07:27 PM
i just purchased my first ar a dpms panther sportical, i know its not a daniel defense or a colt but i like it and it shoots good to me considering im a ak47 fan

I think your SPR clone and my sub-carbine,viewed together, go a long way toward illustrating the versatility of the platform.

OP, you forgot to list what uppers/lowers/add-ons/accessories/optics you be running. Well, maybe not uppers/lowers (no sense in starting a pissing contest) but what optics do you run mostly? Are those Aimpoints, or the Aimpoint clones/step-brother e.g. Vortex Strikefire?

OK - there's STILL some interest in AR's AFTER all! :p

My bad on not listing more - it was late. So here we go.

http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc305/The_War_Wagon/New%20build/100_8368.jpg

From left to right:

#1 - STS Arms lower, DSA A3 flattop upper (The Tactical Toolbox did the cerakote work and assembling of the upper - the barrel is 14.5" with a p/w PWS556 Comp. Barrel specs are here (http://www.thetacticaltoolbox.com/AR15_Barrels.html) - I went with melonite on this project). I had Kevin Johnson of Johnson Tactical Rifles (https://www.johnsontactical.com/toc/)build the lower - mainly because I DIDN'T want to screw up the cerakoted finish :o Sadly, Kevin took a PAYING job in Seattle last September; he did outstanding work, as you'll see; G&R Tactical LPK, although the funky bolt drop paddle was something I'd had laying around for a while. I think it might've been made by DPMS. :eek:

Rail is a SWS made free-float rail for Noveske (marked thusly), that I bought off a local friend who needed the cash. That's really how the whole project got started; I decied, "the rail looks SO good, it needs a little rifle to go WITH it!" ;) I drink the Magpul kool-aid; it's delicious. Other gear includes;

- Magpul ACS stock
- Magpul MOE grip
- Magpul extended trigger guard
- Magpul rail ladders
- Magpul AVG foregrip (I'm a BIG believer in these, as I switched to them after my first training course - they improved my grip GREATLY on the front of the rifle!)
- Magpul PMag with Ranger floorplate
- Palmetto State Armory Premium BCG (this is an experimental rifle for me in MANY respects - wanted to give their gear a try)
- Troy FDE folding battle sights, front & rear
- Troy/VTAC light mount
- Surefire G2 Nitrolon (LED)
- Gear Sector FDE 2 pt. sling with QD connectors
- Gear Sector FDE QD rail mount
- ADM68 FDE 30mm optic mount (absolute co-witness)
- Aimpoint Comp M2


#2 - BCM HBAR 16" Midlength gas system A4 Carbine. Built it with SEPERATE BCM components though! Bought the complete BCM upper (including BCG) used - bolted it to a complete BCM scratch 'n' dent lower from G&R Tactical. Other goodies include:

- Magpul CTR stock
- Magpul MOE grip
- Magpul extended trigger guard
- Magpul rail ladders
- Magpul AVG foregrip
- Magpul PMag
- Troy folding battle sight, rear
- Troy MRF 9.0 drop-in rails
- Gear Sector 2 pt. sling with QD connector (front) web (rear)
- Daniel Defense QD rail mount
- ADM68 30mm optic mount (absolute co-witness)
- Aimpoint Pro with rubber armor
- Gear Sector offset light mount
- Surefire E1B light


#3 - Johnson Tactical Rifles custom built 18.5" SPR (Mk.12) This was THE last rifle built by Kevin, before moving west. I ended up buying a nice little chunk of his shop afterward (tabletop sander, band saw, custom work table, vise, AR15 upper vise block, etc.! :cool: ). From his website, back in the day;

Features Overview

• Comes standard with a 1/8 twist, 18", Medium Profile 416SS barrel. Available with a number of other barrel options (See Below)

• Full Auto Carrier, High Pressure Tested and Magnetic Particle Inspected Bolt properly staked and lapped flat carrier key. Chrome lined Young National Match carriers available!

• Barrel chambered with matched bolt

• Standard with Troy Extreme 13" Rail. (Mine utilies the 15" Troy tube!)

• Available in Rifle or Intermediate, or Mid gas lengths

• 11 degree target crown

• Low profile gas block

• A2 Flash Suppressor

• Polished M4 feed ramps

• Mil-Spec Forged 7075 T6 upper receiver with T-markings, forward assist, hinged dust cover, and M4 feed ramps.

1. These uppers feature my Limited Life Time Warranty.

2. High Pressure Testing followed by Magnetic Particle Inspection assures a rock solid bolt.

3. 223 Wylde chamber increases accuracy and works with 5.56 NATO or .223 SAMMI spec ammunition.

4. Every upper is built by one person from start to finish.

5. I guarantee that every SPR Upper will hold sub-MOA groups and prove that by sending you a picture of the test!

6. I custom fit the rail/upper, chamber/bolt, gas block/barrel, and comp/flash hider interfaces to insure a highly accurate build.

7. We align our barrel blanks to 2/10000 of an inch bore alignment before threading or chambering!

8. These are uppers are built for pushing the 5.56 to ranges unheard of before. I use the Gritters or Two Line method to chamber my SPR barrels. It adds UP MOA to the shot allowing you more elevation at distance.

Quality Assurance

Every single upper that Johnson Tactical produces is fully tested before delivery to the customer. We feel your paying for quality and our job is to insure that is what you are getting! We start by manually inspecting every part, then as the build progresses it’s fit with the other components. Some parts are hand fitted to ensure tighter tolerances. A good example of this is the gas block to barrel fit. This needs to be precise to eliminate gas leaks


Barrel specs

This is my stand alone nitrided barrel offering. Available configurations include:

-Only available with a .223 Wylde chamber currently.

-Includes a Headspaced, HPT/MP bolt with extractor upgrades

-Carbine, Mid, Intermeidate, or Rifle length gas systems with a .750 gas block seat that is 2" in length

-Single set screw seat indexed to the gas port

-Barrel lengths in 12.5, 14.5, 16, 17, 18.5, 20, or 24 inch

-18.5" lengths and longer are chambered using the two line method and timed up

-Available in a 1/7 or 1/8 twist rate (traditional rifling)

-My base profile is a modified medium contour.

-Comes standard with a 11 degree crown

-Threaded 1/2-28 at the muzzle

Other specs on this rifle include;

- Magpul ACS stock
- Magpul extended trigger guard
- Ergo ambi-grip
- Vltor MUR-1A upper
- BCM, G&R Tactical LPK
- Giselle SSA-E trigger
- Young National Match BCG - chrome
- PWS556 Comp
- Troy folding BUIS, front & rear
- LaRue SPR-EE109 scope mount
- Leupold Mark AR 3x9x40 scope
- Daniel Defense offset mount
- Optima 2000 eletro-dot offset sight
- Troy TRX Extreme 15" free-float handguards
- Harris Bipod
- CAA bipod mount (yeah... I cheaped on THAT... :o )
- Magpul 20 rnd. PMag
- Noveske QD endplate
- Troy TRX mount-n-slot QD mount

I put a basic 2-pt web sling on it, mainly so I can TOTE it around! You'd be AMAZED how LIGHT this build is!


#4 - Addax custom upper, 14.5" mid-length gas system Carbine. Chris, at Addax Tactical (http://www.addaxtactical.com/store/pc/home.asp)in Los Angeles, built this custom upper for me a few years ago, for my primary HD rifle. Features include;

- Vltor MUR-1A upper.
- 14.5" Sabre Defense 5.56 1: 7 twist MPI/HP tested chrome-lined, M4 profile barrel, with p/w Phantom Comp
- BCM F/A BCG
- Magpul CTR stock
- Magpul MIAD grip
- Magpul extended trigger guard
- Magpul rail ladders
- Magpul AVG foregrip
- Magpul PMag
- Troy folding battle sights, front & rear
- Daniel defense 12.0 Lite free float rails
- Vltor low-profile gas block (not mentioned, but I pretty much use those across the board)
- Tactical Link Z360 mount and 1pt. sling
- ADM68 30mm optic mount (absolute co-witness)
- Aimpoint Micro T-1 optic
- ADM T-1 mount with SOCOM riser (absolute co-witness)
- Vltor offset light mount
- Insight HX Proxima light

This is my go-to around-the-house rifle.


#5 - Tactical Solutions dedicated .22LR tactical trainer. Bought this upper from Addax as well. Didn't like the M4 handguards, becase I don't use 'em on anything else I own! Got a set of DD 12.0 FSP Omega-X rails used, and put 'em on here!

Lower sits atop a Precision-Aero complete lower, with Ace ARF-X fixed stock. Came as a package deal with the lower, which I bought off another gunboard. Always wanted to try one of their stocks, and while NICE, doesn't really fit with anything else of mine, so I keep it on my trainer. Other features include;

- Ergo amb-grip
- Magpul Gen.1 rear BUIS
- Magpul extended trigger guard
- Magpul rail ladders
- Magpul AVG foregrip
- Vltor CK light mount
- PentagonLight X2 with TacStar remote cap & tapeswitch
- TacticalLink 2 pt. sling, with QD connector (front) we connector (rear)
- TacticalLink QD rail mount
- Aimpoint Comp M (1 - that FIRST comp series, that has about 12 hours of battery life, but is otherwise identical to the Comp M2 and M3 externally) in QRP mount with absolute co-witness riser.
- BlackDog Machine 26 round magazine
- ARMS 41B Shilouette folding front sight mount... sort of... ;)

It's actually Airsoft! :eek:

Since this is a .22LR upper, with NO gasblock, you can pretty much stick ANYTHING with a sightpost up there. For $38, what ELSE could you stick up there, that wouldn't cost an arm & a leg, and would utilize that FSP rail hole? I believe this is ONE place & time, you can legitimately cut a corner, AND get away with it. So I did! :D

I built this to be a legitimate Tactical Trainer in every respect. The nice thing is, should it all hit the fan, I can pop the .22 upper, slap a 5.56 upper on it, and you're ready to go with another fighting carbine.


Any questions? :cool:

Any gun in production today should be able to run a whole 350 rounds without function issues. If 350 rounds is our benchmark, we have low expectations of the platform.

:D Yeah, that's pretty much where I am as well. I have a PSA mid-length, MOE (FDE=tan). I tend to keep my gear simple and skip the doodads.

Someday I may slap a light on it... maybe.

My weakness when it comes to firearms is excessive fretting over my choice of ammunition. I have zeroed in on Hornady #8126N (5.56 75gr OTM) as my carbine's barrel is 1:7 and I like fragmentation lots.

if you guys want to talk about AR stoppages and malfunctions, start a new thread (and preferably do a search as it's only been covered about 1000 times already)



"high round count" classes normally do about 1200+ rnds over 2-3 days. HOWEVER, it's not the total rounds that makes it difficult, because you can easily shoot that many rounds plinking from a bench at a leisurely pace. What makes it harder on the rifle is that the day is comprised of periods of instruction, followed by repeating a drill over and over and over and over in a fairly short time.

+1 I think a few zeros need to go behind that number...

I was just reading the Military requirements for the M6-1C (LWRC) tests and they required that a gun shoot between 20-30k a year much of which was suppressed.

The gun is neutered because I live in NY the mag is a pmag that was modified to only accept 10 rounds.. got 2 preban colt 30 rounders ordered that should arrive today or tomorrow

Just finished it last week and took it to the range a couple times... heres a 100 yard target

Not the greatest shooting in the world but I haven't shot Irons much at over 50 yards yards.. and i was using Tullammo lol



Would like to get a 9mm ar15 so i can afford to shoot more these things are to dang fun

i was just saying that my dpms has yet to jam, it only had 350rds ran in it because it has only been to the range one time, i just got it.
i dont know much about ar,s im just learning. i was just curious about what someone else posted 2 bushmasters with a high round count....
i didnt know what someone would consider a high round count.
my original question was how many rounds should you be able to get out of a ar15 before you have to rebuild it?? 20k....30k....?
thanks

Just got my tan M553.A65 Eotech which is one of the best holo's out there. You could go with an aimpoint if you did not want to spend as much. Got mine from americangunfighters.com, good deals.

depends on what your goal is. if 2-3MOA is good enough for you, then you might get 60k-100k rnds out of the barrel if it's mil-spec and chrome lined. if you have a stainless match barrel, it might go 5k-10k before the groups open up. the receivers shouldn't wear out. there are some wear parts in it. bolts should last 5k-10k rnds. i'd replace the action spring around 7k rnds. bolt parts like the extractor/springs/insert may go faster


btw, if you want a question answered, it's often best to start a new thread instead of burying your question in page 3 of another thread on a different topic

thing is, It's *not* a simple question...

My boot camp issued M16 was originally issued in 1974, IIRC (I got my paws on it in 1980)

I was told it had been rebarreled, but afaik, it was mostly original.

By the time a component might be wearing out, I ve likely replaced it for other reasons, but these days, I am not a high volume shooter.
