I finally got around to building one and am bored right now
it has:
Stag Arms upper
Double Star Lower reciever
Midwest Industries Rear sight
CMMG lower pars kit
Tapco 6-position Buttstock
and of course the bullet button
Since I own a composites company I figured I would put some Carbon Fiber in the stock to make it my own

Did you go with the CMMG trigger? If so how do you like it?

It is the CMMG trigger. I like it alot. I would recommend it, but I'm sure there are nicer triggers out ther

I put 200 rounds through it last weekend and I got used to it.

and no I didn't build the stock. I just put the carbon i it

Thats cool. Can you do that to the barrel? Can it take the heat?

Carbon fiber can take a lot of heat, and I mean a lot.

I have a lot of high end carbon parts on my bike and they hold up very well.

it's not the carbon that's the issue, it's the resin

If epoxy resin is used, it will be very durable. The problem with carbon makers is, they skimp on the epoxy resin because it is expensive. They use all kinds of substitutes to keep costs down, but none are as durable as epoxy resin.

Hey i have a Tapco 6 position stock also. Are these things mil-spec or commercial?

Clark customs and a couple other firms make carbon fiber handguards

if you want some just let me know

and that is true about the epoxy resin being tough, but a epoxy based resin for 99% of things out there is overkill for the application. But it helps people sleep at night knowing they have epoxy resin on their parts

you should make cf floated handgaurds with slots for rail pieces. a cf jp handgaurd if you will.

hmmm
that is a good idea. I have hundreds of carbon sock that would be perfect for that

PRI makes cf handguards as well. Some of the gov't SPR's use them.

Oh, and you wouldn't be wanting a Materials Engineering intern for what's left of the summer, would you? :)
