UPDATED PICS ON PAGE 7

she is almost ready, but i couldnt wait to show her off, still waiting on a ProMag scope mount (using a temp setup in the meantime) and going to buy harris bi-pod (using a cheap one i had laying arround)

Build consists of the following

Spikes Tactical Lower (Metroshot Firearms)
CMMG 20" A3 MedCon Flat Top Upper 5.56 1/7 Twist (OpticsPlus/www.shootforless.com)
Daniel Defense 12" Free Float Handguard (ar15barrels/Randall)
YHM Flip Up Front Sight Gas Block (ar15barrels/Randall)
VLTOR eMod Stock (Glendale Gun Show)
CProducts 10/30 Mag (Metroshot Firearms)
RRA NM 2 Stage Trigger
Bullet Button
RRA Lower Parts Kit (Metroshot Firearms)
Burris FFII Tactical 3-9x40 Scope (Gunner1/calguns member)
Matech BUIS (paladin4415/calguns member)
Bushnell XLP Low Profile HoloSight (Turners)

i think that pretty much covers it.

Thanx to all the calgunners for their help in building my first AR
and thanx to all of the vendors and calgun members for the parts and advice.

not bad for a first build huh?

EDIT: ive put 500 trouble free rounds through her since i built her. after i got my magazine problem sorted out, ive had 0 problems with her. she is alot of fun, my wife loves to shoot her. after she shot the rifle she stopped nagging at me about how much money i spent on it. and now she wants one of her own!!! lol

Great setup. How well does the Bushnell Holosight work? Is it as clear and easy to see as the Eotech? And, does it hold zero?

I'm interested in getting one.

Very very nice rifle.

How do you like that daniel Defense handguard? I'm interested in the same one and am looking for some feedback. Also, is the handguard open on the front, with a large gap around the barrel, or is it closed? Thanks a lot.

Now why did I sell that scope? Oh well it went to a good guy and a nice looking rifle. If your ever in the Redding area there are some great places to shoot. Let me know.

Thanx guys/gals, all of you got my hottie blushing, lol

as for the questions, the holosight is very clear and holds its zero very well, it will hold zero on a 12 awg shot gun, let alone a 5.56/.223.

the daniel defense handguard which i bought from Randall (ar15barrels) and he installed it as well, is very nice, it is as good as it gets IMO.

and no there is no big gap at the barrel, there is almost no gap at the front, i was worried about that same thing myself, but it looks great, ill post a pic of the front in a little bit.

Very nice! I've never seen that model of Holosight before. Looks cool.

+1 on the Daniel Defense forearm. They are light weight and wonderfully built. They feel better in your hand as they are "oval" (narrower across than they are tall.) Pricey, though

+100 on Randall for any and all AR needs (other than getting lowers.)

I'd be a up for a range day too, let me know if you set something up.

jandmtv

Great setup. How well does the Bushnell Holosight work? Is it as clear and easy to see as the Eotech? And, does it hold zero?

I'm interested in getting one.

Bushnell makes 2 "holosights." One is an EOTech copy & the one on this gun is designed (hence:lo-profile) for shotguns / bird hunting.

Your scope and your rifle don't match. I think I see a paint job in your future :D

thanx guys, as for the scope not matching, i dont really care about the color, infact i kinda like the color, lol, and for the holosight, this is not made for shotguns, there is another model made for shotguns, ill post of pic of that one below, and i got this over the other one that looks like the eotech, because this one uses AAA batteries as opposed to the other one using the N batteries. plus not too many shot guns have a rail on top...

this is the one made for shotguns.

Hey looks great!
Glad we were able to get you the registered part!

We are going to be doing custom builds including SPR rifles.

Check on our new thread coming up: Duracoat AR15 !

Get your hottie a partner - we have PINK & MAGENTA Sun Devil SD15 matching upper/lower sets!

OOOOPS! My bad! I've only seen them on shotguns (didn't realize they also made one for rifles:)) You've NEVER seen a shotgun w/ Weaver rails? Check page 9 in the '07 Remington catalog, OR ANY Remington catalog (not sure which page)/Uberti catalog/Benelli catalog, etc...etc.... As far as the Bushnell Holosights being made by EOTech, I had no idea, that's interesting. Thought they were made outside the U.S. (I'll have to double check)- but WOW, you learn something new every day!:)

jandmtv

the bipod in the photo is a cheap one, its ok at best. get a harris bipod if you want something that will last a long time and work well.

Thanx

Very very nice rifle.

I have a DD as well, but to let you know, this model line has a design flaw which is the failure to relieve torque imposed upon the barrel nut by the rail system. LaRue has a better design, although does not relieve the torque 100%.

Designs that do are very expensive,btw. The DOD solution is probably the best which is to use the existing mounting system which has a built-in design for torque relief.

this model line has a design flaw which is the failure to relieve torque imposed upon the barrel nut by the rail system. LaRue has a better design, although does not relieve the torque 100%.

Could you put this into plainer english?

Rotary or lateral torque?
Are you talking about torque generated by a VFG, or by simply resting the handguard on something?

jandmtv

i dont know what the hell stator just said, but i love my dd handguards! thanx to Randall!

Nice rifle. I'm going to be using the same rail and flip up front sight on my rifle. How did you go about installing the rail and gas tube? did you put the gas tube in the upper, then put on the rail, then install the front sight and slip the gas tube into it?

jandmtv
07-15-2008, 11:33 PM
Randall (ar15barrels) did both rail installs for me, but you install the gas tube onto the gas block, you fully install the rail onto the barrel/upper, then you install the gas block with tube last.

BlackRifle313
07-15-2008, 11:35 PM
how do you get the gas tube into the upper if the rail is on though? Seems like that would be really tricky

jandmtv
07-15-2008, 11:36 PM
its not, trust me.
