Now that is clean looking. What kind of match is this? From the looks of the rifle, It is definately not NRA Service Rifle. Or does your club just let you play with what you bring?

Not sure....it is pretty light. We do not have a scale in the house. I am guessing no more then 8 lbs.

I had a similar JP setup with irons and mine was about 8lbs.

So how do you like the AR Gold trigger compared to the JP trigger?

Nice rifle. You can never go wrong with a JP. Grip looks real comfortable.

I have never used a JP trigger. I have Timney triggers in my other AR's. The limited time I have played with it so far it is on par with the Timney as feel and break.

I will give more thoughts when I get a chance to take it to the range.

Take care,Stan

Oh OK. For some reason I thought you went whole hog with your JP's and had the trigger as well.

I've got the Gold in my JP and it's really the only AR trigger I am familiar with. On my Gold, I really like the 1911 feel to the trigger. I'll be getting a Geissele S3G to compare it to very soon.

Please give range results ASAP. I get good results with my JP w/ AR Gold but I'd like to see what a more capable shooter than myself could do with it.

You don't get that crappy ladder bite from quad rails either. My favorite tubes are the JP VTAC, the TROY TRX VTAC, and the Nordic Tube. All of these can have rails added to them as you need as well, so you don't have to forego accessories.

Perfect 3 gun rifle. The JP barrels are absolutely awesome. You're gonna love the adjustable gas system once it's all dialed in.

I would've considered putting a JP clamp on front sight wayyy out on the barrel, like Kurt Miller's here:

Nice blaster either way.

I'm not sure he's able to do that with his barrel profile. Most clamp-on FSB are for .750 contour. JP has their own proprietary contour which is .650 under the handguards and bull-type ahead of the gas block. He could get the front of the barrel turned down to do it.

Ahhh, just checked the JP sight. You are correct. Even their clamp on is for .750. I stand corrected.

Sick set up either way. The JP barrels are awesome.

What targets does your club use?

I have found that the Shoot-n-See 6'' cirlces are close to the 100 yard reduced NRA targets and give you instant feedback. Plus, the are cheaper than shooting the real targets.

Good stuff!

Oh, well that is just cheating! :p

Sounds like a fun match. Looks like that JP will do well.

Have to hand it to John Paul at JP of making an AR with any barrel length to shoot accurate as hell!

Most excellent!

How much did that upper cost you?

Stan how well do the recoil reducing pieces you purchased work?
these couple
JP low mass buffer
low mass bolt carrier

Also do these have to be coupled with the adjustable gas block or could they be stand alone?

Nice set up. I have been thinking real hard about a JP set up in 18" much like you have. The only differences would be a scope and a space guns stock to really make it comfortable to shoot. After carrying my RRA 20" bull barrel and 500 rnds of ammo for three days while walking around for prairie dogs I am fed up with carrying a heavy rifle.
Did you get the upper with the cooling fins? I like the JP hand guard but think the Troy hand giard would be lighter, just don't know if it would fit with the cooling fins. How is that low mass carrier and buffer. I was also thinking of using the JP recoil elinimator/tank brake.

Wow. Very nice build. I have been a fan of the look of the C3 lower but can't find one local here in Bakerfield.

Stan,
Looking real close at the 18" set up. Would you feel comfortable out to 400 yards with the 18" barrel scoped? Baiscally to hit targets the size of a 1 liter coke bottle? I am considering selling a couple of uppers to go with teh JP set up.

Definetly not 8lbs. Looks more like 6.5- 7lbs at most.

Boy, I've never been one for über simple ARs, but that is just elegant. It's like the Bang & Olufsen of AR-15s. Just looks like it was made to put rounds on target. Nicely done.

I have never seen a C3 either, but I have been told that the Bakersfield Gun Club over on Rosedale Hwy. makes their own billet lowers. Still have yet to pay them a visit though.

Stan, every time I see your JP's I immediately go to the JP website and dream. These are, by far, some of the most beautiful AR rifles out there. Good luck at your match.

Thanks Stan. I am trying to sell a few of my uppers so that I have no money out of pocket. My 1 liter coke bottles are prairie dogs so if you can do it with your 16" with good success then it should be no problem with an 18". Thanks for spending my money. I was thinking of a cheaper route but I won't save much and I still wanted a jp so I figure just suck it up and pay the money.
