That definitely looks like it cost some serious coin.

I love it. Awesome rifle. Nice grip btw:cool:

I'm thinking about getting a nice Leupold to throw on there. The buffer is an Olympic Arms AC4 pneumatic piston, by the way. The grip is the Pachmayr Vindicator. The Vindicator is so perfect it just feels so right. Best grip I've ever held. As for the price... well yeah it was expensive, but my goal with this rifle was to get a solid upper, serious barrel and an action that cycles like a dream. The barrel is a Sabre 18" chrome lined vanadium alloy, fluted with 1:7" twist. I'm planning on shooting 75gr rounds due to the twist.

Nice build. Where did you get the Vltor upper? The MUR has been hard to come by. That's on my short list of uppers to get.

It's a VIS not a MUR ;)

Yeah, it's a VIS and I bought it from Rainier Arms.Their mid-length 10" model has been sold out forever, otherwise i would have gotten that one. I must say that the Vltor is far better than I expected, which is a damn good thing considering how much money I spent on it!! ha ha... the one I got is a VIS-2A I think. Vltor really kicked the crap out of LMT with their "monolithic" upper idea.

how much does a vis upper weigh compared to a regular upper with like a DD 7.0 lite rail weigh?

wondering which one weighs less for my next build.

I forget what the VIS is made from, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was lighter than a normal upper with a rail. My upper is mid length, and you're asking about a carbine length system, so the question doesn't necessarily mesh here. Either way I thought it was light.

not sure about the vis, but you do realize that the DD lite rail weighs more than the DD M4 rail, right?

12" DD Rifle Length M4 rail = 13oz <--aluminum barrel nut
12" DD Rifle Length Lite rail = 14oz <--steel barrel nut

DD 7 m4 - 8.5oz

I like the look of that grip, is it designed for use on an AR? Is this just a paper puncher, or are you going to be hunting with it?

You should have taken that weird scope cover off for the pics, it looks like when a fat chick tries to squeeze into a too small bikini bottom.

Yeah it's an AR-15 grip. You can find it on Midway. This is gonna be a paper puncher for right now because I literally just built it, and in fact it's going to be fired for the first time in about 12 hours. :P Yeah I guess I should have taken the scope cover off. At least I got a joke out of it.

That's pretty awesome. Any chance of adding a parts list to the first post?

Just curious what's the difference you're seeing - is it mostly weight or quality?

How do you like the Oly Arms AC4? I like the idea of getting rid of the "SPROING" sound of my AR15.

Very nice looking rifle! Wheres the parts list though? :)

Not sure about the weight, but yeah the difference is quality. Vltor basically bonds two parts together whereas LMT machines their uppers from one piece of metal.

Here's some new ones with the scope cover removed and a 10/30 Pmag.

Sweet build! Let me know how you like the AC4 pneumatic buffer as compared to the standard buffer. I might have to get me one of those.

I would say just buy one anyways... the AC4 is not expensive and it gets rid of that damn SPROING. Some people dig the noise, but I don't really. I didn't get the chance to go shooting yet, but very soon I will. I'll try to take pics with bullet and range data as well as the feel of the AC4 for ya. :)

where did you get that 10/30 pmag with the ranger plate on it? All my california pmags came epoxied to where I could not add my ranger plates.

Where did the chrome trigger go?

novanryder
08-16-2008, 1:04 AM
For the mag I had to crack it open then re-epoxy it back on myself. It's not hard, you just need to be careful. I just wish I'd had OD ranger plates. The chrome lower and trigger is still on there, but the one pictured on the OD rifle is a completely different lower. And by the way, unless you don't care about ruining your 10/30 pmag don't try to do what I did. It's easy to ruin it and I axed one trying to get it right.
