Starting from a Billet MEGA upper/lower receiver group with a built in battery assist button for extremely easy bolt drops to get you back in action faster. The idea was to build the ultimate civilian legal CQB rifle, keep it for the zombies or men in blue hats, or to rock the WEGC tactical rifle competition with it. The philosophy was to have as short an overall length while maintaining the inherent accuracy of a rife while having extremely high firepower; so it was only natural to gravitate toward the up and coming AAC 300Blackout round.
For those of you who don't know, 300BLK is a saami spec cartridge that is essentially a 30caliber bullet in a 5.56 case, this is fantastic because all the 223/5.56 components still operate the firearm, bolt, carrier, magazines, everything except obviously, the barrel. Shooting the 300 blackout in my opinion feels very much the same as a 5.56 recoil but instead of snapping, it pushes. similar from a 40 to a 45.The barrel of the gun was custom ordered from blackhole weaponry as a 14.5", heavy profile, polygonal 3 groove, 1 in 8.5 twist barrel. Later it was permanently pinned and welded with a VLTOR vc-301 compensator/flash hider bringing the overall length to a legal 16.1 inches. a 13.8" troy battle rail was chosen for its durability and some filing was done to the guide pins to ensure perfect fitment with the Mega receiver.
This rifle was built with the intent to be kept forever and so no expense was spared during the build, only top quality components were chosen. JP buffer spring, Tango Down battle grip, Raddlock, Stag internals for their ability to take thousands of rounds before needing to be re-oiled, an ACE SOCOM stock for its light weight nature and its ability to bust a doorknob off a door with the strike plate, troy gas block, JP rifles lower parts, and by advice of the late John Noveske, a single-stage flat face lightweight trigger, this one happens to be Chip Mccormick.
The gun has fired a grand total of 40 rounds, 20 of the 125gr supersonic remington match (the gitsum rounds), and 20 of remingtons clean burning 220gr subsonic rounds. the subsonics surprisingly still cycled the gun just fine, which to anyone who has ever tried to cycle a semi-automatic anything with subsonic rounds, that is REALLY surprising. Immediately after, the rifle went through a full armorers clean, was oiled properly and set aside for the zombies.
The time as come however to move on. I am local to Southern California (near Los Anglese, sort of) PM me, I'm busy most of the day, but I will be checking back periodically. Its time that someone has a chance to own this custom masterpiece before our government determines shortly that you will no longer be able to purchase such a wonderful weapon.
