    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" :rolleyes:

    :D

    My "precision" AR is of a different configuration. It's a Rock River "special build", with a 16" semi-bull barrel, free floated medium-length handguads, ARMS super-extended SWAN sleeve, and a Leupold 1.5-5X mounted for proper eye relief.

    It can shoot honest 0.4 MOA 5-shot groups at 100 yards with the right ammo.

    When I can afford it, it will wear a 4x ACOG to bring the weight down a little bit.

    wow, Zak, now that one i like! have any more pictures of it?

    how much does it weigh in at?

    i cant imagine an ACOG would weigh less than that scope you have now...

    SkaerE,

    I haven't weighed it yet. Maybe I'll stick it on the bathroom scale tonight.

    The TA01 weighs about the same as the Leu (9.9 vz 9.5oz). The Leu requires the ARMS rail (?? oz) and a pair of steel PRW rings (5.2oz), while the TA01 would just require the flat-top adapter, which has got to weight less than the ARMS sleeve + rings.

    The rifle also sports a short stock from Fulton Armory, thus earning the nickname, "The Friendly Rifle".

    Here are links to some more pictures.

    i had thought of building a rifle similar to yours on a preban bushy i had. i like the idea of the super long rail and ability to mount different types of scopes. very nice...

    SkaerE,
    That Leupold 1.5x5 is a great scope for the AR's. Is small enough that it doesnt get in the way and has enough power to deal with things at what I consider realistic .223 ranges. At its lowest setting, its a lot like iron sights or a scout type scope and is very fast. With both eyes open, the cross hairs just appear on the target like a scout scope. With no front sight in the way, it can be mounted low so you get a proper cheek weld that matches your iron sights weld, for me anyway. I hate a scope that doesnt fit what I'm used to. This scope mounted on an ARMS mount with low rings is just right for me. It allows the scope to be mounted forward enough to get a proper eye relief. When i throw it up, theres no squriming around trying to get a sight picture. Its the same weld and head position for me, from my iron sighted guns to my Leupold scoped Armalite.

    Wonder if this will work:

    [​IMG]

    Yup...sure did! Not much of the rifle to see here, but that little baby's shot a number of 194-196's (out of 200) at 600 yards. She's getting old now, but the new one (a custom gun with a Pac-Nor) has already shot a 579-17x (out of 600) all at 600 yards. One string of that was in a snowstorm!

    Just 'cause they look normal doesn't mean they are!

    The one pictured weighs about 8.5lbs +/- 0.5, per the bathroom scale, unloaded.
