nooo... Pistons are for very short carbines, only.

Rifles are plenty good without them. You'll do more bad things to a rifle with overhead moving parts, too.

Hard flinging of brass isn't a good thing.

That comes from the high pressures of a pistol gas.

another somewhat off-topic question... Where is a good place to get a LMT stripped lower from and how much should I expect to pay? I did a little bit of searching yesterday but didn't really find much info aside from assembled lowers and them not shipping direct to CA after July 1. I'm kind of tempted to have one for my next build since my last name would be on it :)

I don't think LMT sells them stripped.
The only way to buy one stripped would be to buy it from someone who took it all apart for you.
The best deal is the version with the sopmod stock and 2 stage trigger.
Add up the individual prices and it's a good deal.

Ah alright. I'll probably end up going that route for the rifle I build for my girlfriend then. It's marked 5.56 anyways and I plan for my next build to be a Grendel. Thanks for the headsup!

Well, I have an LMT lower on this build, and, though I love it, I really don't think it's that much different than a noveske or the like. It's not a POF GEN III or anything. It's a nice lower, but if you want a stripped lower, there are plenty to go with (and that I use).

I know what you mean. A lower's a lower. There's really no difference between any of them as long as they're made to spec. The only reason I'm contemplating an LMT for one of my builds is because my last name is Lewis so it'd just be a cool thing to have one with "my" name on it without having to get one custom engraved. :) Aside from that there's no difference between it and all the others.

Oh, well m24armorer can re-face and re-engrave any lower to say whatever you want (as long as it has the serial and manufacturer still) for a reasonable price.

Also, LWRC lowers and LMT lowers are the same lowers with different engravings in case you care...

Piston is just starting to ship now.
They will be shipping full rifles first, then uppers when the full rifle orders are filled, and then conversion kits (barrel and bolt) after that. So depending on what you want it will take a few weeks to a month to get in the pipeline. I have a conversion GP on order for my CQB MRP

at the range. And then sight in and shoot it with the Leupold with no sights on. I just didn't take the sight off cause until it goes in my truck it's sitting in my safe. What I was saying about teh Leupold CQT is that when I threw it on there, I expected to see the front sight post -- blurry -- in the field of view -- I was surprised it was not in there, so I left it there for now. Can I ever post anything without a snide comment?
BTW front and rear sights came from factory only finger tightened.

If you don't see the front sight, the CQT is sitting too tall and you probably won't have a proper cheekweld either.

None of those things matter to gun owners though. ;)
Shooters would notice them right away.

Like those shooters in the sand box whose faces hover above their stocks so they can see through their optics?

The CQT comes one height: Too high.
So an actual rifle scope will reside on this rifle when I intend to shoot it for myself.

I took my new LMT MRP AR15 Piston Driven Rifle System out to the range Saturday to sight her in. I used battle sight zero at 25 meters and got the following groups.

At 25 meters with iron sights this rifle appears to be accurate. Probably more accurate than my 49-year old eyes. All in all, I'm very happy.

"Well, why not get different BUIS? I've never seen BUIS infront of an optic before?? It also looks backwards to me. BUIS are typically behind your optic."

Tried that but with the BUIS behind the optic it pushes the ACOG even farther forward. It is mounted backwards (not that it really matters with these Magpul folding sights) that brings it a bit farther back than if it was mounted forwards. The rifle came with LMT Iron Sights which are sweet and much better quality than these flip up ones, but they get in the way of the ACOG even more. This is my wife's Range / SHTF rifle so she wants the best of both worlds, this is the closest i could think of to have the ACOG mounted and sighted in and also have the iron sights mounted and sighted in if the ACOG becomes unuseable or.... The other option for this rifle build is an eotech with cowitnessed with the LMT sights but I think she'll enjoy the ACOG a lot more at the range. The Eotech and LMT sights will most likely default to my Stag rifle.

Oregonish
07-24-2010, 2:37 PM
Here's a thread for ideas. What magnification is your ACOG?? Are you literally putting your eye on it?? Maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure your using the optic properly, can anyone else chime in??

4x32 ACOGs have 1.5" eye relief, I have four of them and know them pretty well (TA01, TA31F, TA31DOC, TA31ECOS). With a carbine stock, I completely collapse it, as I often have armor on in training. Without armor, I can use the stock in its 2nd position (1st is completely closed), but for consistency I always keep the stock collapsed.

Well there's our problem, we have the stock extended all the way out. I guess we'll just need to learn to snuggle up on it more.
