Default Completed my AR-308 build

JD Machine 308 matched receiver set
Nib BCG (762industries.com)
BCM Mod4 Medium charging handle
Mega Arms 20" 308 barrel 1/10 twist (rifle length gas)
YHM Phantom 5C1 Flash Supressor
Troy MRF-308 13.8" rail
DA7 adjustable gas block (slrrifleworks.com)
DPMS 308 LPK
ALG Defense trigger (will upgrade soon, had this lying around)
308 Carbine spring/buffer/tube
Magpul STR stock
Magpul MIAD grip
Scope/Bipod (saving up/researching)

I took it to the range this past weekend using Magpul BUIS I had lying around to test and get some rounds through it.
It shot great except the BCG did not lock back on an empty mag (pmag and dmps parkerized), even with the gas block fully open.
The BCG will lock back if I manually pull the charging handle.
I checked again and verified the gas block is dead center on the barrel gas port.
I will probably try a lighter buffer spring.

Onto the pics.

Looks good congrats. What power scope you looking to put on yours. I first had a 1-4x then switch mine up to a 3-9x, much better for 308.

Thanks man. I'm thinking about 4-16x. I have a 3-9x on a bolt action and would like a little more magnification for this build.

I'm liking the barrel so far. I've only got about 50 rounds through it at 100 yards with 8" groupings (I need some more practice). Mega Arms claims their barrels with shoot sub moa @ 100 yds with match ammo. We'll see after I get a scope for this build.

The bcg seems great and headspaced just fine. The first bcg I got in the mail had scratches on the rear of the bolt as well as spots where the NiB did not take. I let them know and had a replacement bcg in 2 days. Good customer service.
