    I am in full panic buy mode Really just an excuse to buy an AR15:)

    (also posted this in my Barrel question thread)

    I ended up ordering a UBR from Fulton Armory. Spoke to Clint and he was very nice and very patient answering all my stupid questions. I am in MA and can't have a suppressor or threaded barrel. FA was able to put together a MA compliant rifle for me similar to this with A1 Stock (No collapsible stocks allowed in MA):

    Two stage Match Trigger
    Fixed Front Sight
    Criterion by Krieger Barrel 1x9 twist
    Slick Side Side Cock

    "The Look" Criterion by Krieger Barrel 1x9 twist
    From Fulton Armory: "The Fulton Armory "Post-Ban" barrel includes "The Look" muzzle device, which looks like a suppressor but is completely post-ban legal everywhere. Most importantly, "The Look" is pinned on just as the front sight base is pinned on. Why is this important? You can remove it, which is the only way to get the front sight base off, allowing the installation of float tubes as well as any needed maintenance." It is mostly cosmetic but will serve to protect the muzzle crown.

    Slick Side Side Cock:
    The Side Cocking Option allows bolt cycling without breaking position and makes bolt charging effortless even with optics.

    Delivery is 6-10 weeks

    Dayummmn...A neutered AR :( Downgraded to bolt action. Well, at least you can have an AR format.
    I really appreciate living in SC!
    (Happy owner of a SBR AR :neener:)
    Did I forget to mention that I have a silencer on it too?

    Scott - It is semi-auto just a different configuration. It moves the action away from the optics.

    Ahhh, so the handle is just to load after mag changes. OK
    But I still have a threaded barrel and a silencer :neener:

    If the prices shown online are still accurate, they have pretty good products for the money. Seem to emphasize on their accuracy, and I wouldn't mind having that $1,200 .308 they have.

    Scott - I hate you! ;)

    I can't believe you can have a silencer. That is VERY cool.

    Bang - The .308 has a nice write up/Review. I will post how it shoots once it cones home.

    I've never seen a cocking lever like that. I have to say I really like it. It is an improvement over the M16, I think. although the tradoff is that you can't use an ejection port cover.

    I just noticed something else. The cocking lever seems to also act as a spent case deflector. Cool.

    Would it make you feel better if I told you that the silencer only fits my SPIKES 12.5" upper with .22LR?
    Cannot afford another can/tax stamp for the 11.5" .223 upper for a few more years until the wife is out of grad school.
