I know that. But with all the different builds we are bound to have different uses and weights. Mine is a pig at 8lbs with a SBR 18” barrel a magizine and red dot.

I was just about to pull the trigger and buy the Gibbz or the NFA upper. Was looking at Matrix , but don't like the forward assist + I need the ejection port to be large enough for 458 socom.
Any other options out there for sub $300?

In response to the question about weight, mine comes in a bit under 7 pounds, that's with a loaded 10 round mag.
It feels lighter than that.
I really like the thin wrist and overall length. I can easily hold it down at my side with one hand and the muzzle is well clear of the ground.

Nice weight on that one. My SCR is around that with a light upper IIRC... cannot beat a Kel SU-16 at under 5 pounds though... unless you want something you can't break in half over your knee hahah.

Its not a brake, its a thread protector. I had mentioned it on another thread about muzzle devices. It's from Selous Weapons Systems down in Texas.
US made very nicely, dirt cheap, looks good, doesn't look like a thread protector, and can't be construed as a flash hider.
Until the "State" publishes a list of approved devices, I feel one is tempting fate by having a compensator installed.
Here's the item on eBay:

All my thread protectors cost about that or less whether checkered, smooth, or fluted IIRC.

Interesting - looks almost "evil" on the gun, gives it a finished look.

I'm getting a new upper and need to figure out sights (didn't really like the cheek weld with the fixed A2 sight on the old upper). Are the CZ Scorpions the only fixed low profile sights going? I've looked around a little and came up empty handed.

Otherwise I am on the fence going with just a red dot.

I did not find any other good option. I went red dot only. 50K hours with a cheap PA red dot.

I was kinda thinking these LPA sights in a pinch, but they're for shotgun, and only one aperture on the rear :/

In the midst of re-configuring my upper/sights etc. I am thinking I might need to get an extended mag release button. I'll have to check again, but I am pretty sure that my finger doesn't come even close to the stock mag release. I have normal, non stubby hands/fingers.

Most of what I see on the market doesn't look like these extensions actually extend far back enough closer to the natural position of where your finger would be. Anybody else experienced this?

It kind of seems like a design flaw, or at least something SCR would make available as another expensive add on part (bolt catch anybody?)

It's a flaw in the design. Most people use an ambi mag release like the Norgon, Troy, or KAC. If you're a righty, you use your left hand to press and remove at the same time.

I wouldn't say flaw. I would say it is more of a design compromise

I have an ODIN Works XMR on my lower and its not even close to be reachable. I think you need an ambi release if you are going to do fast mag changes.

I have 4 SCRs now, I don’t even bring regular ARs to the range anymore. But they are all equipped with the bolt catch and the knights armament ambi mag release. It’s really easy to change a mag, but between the bolt catch and the ambi release I chose, it makes the rifle about $100 more.

The extended magazine release does help, maybe more than would seem just by looking at the device and visualizing it on the receiver. I resisted thinking it was a waste of about $18.00 but found one for less, no shipping and bought it. It probably is a waste of $$$, as is much of what we buy, but it does make the release easier to reach.

There is no way that any of the extended mag releases I found for sale would help, look at where my finger lines up....it would be a good ~1 inch off target even if one was installed.

Anyway, I found a SIG M400 ambi release on Optics Planet for $16, they have a few left if anyone needs one.

Thanks. Bought one. But the price went up to $21.

That's still way cheaper than the other options though.

Another option would be an Arms Unlimited mag release. Its essentially a Norgen copy made in the US but lots cheaper than Norgen. They are normally $25 but have on occasion been on sale for $20. Bonus is they dont charge shipping.

That SIG ambi release should be here by end of week.

In other news, I took the latest configuration to the range to function check a new upper (CBC Industries) and zero in a red dot ($40 Bushnell TRS-25 black friday special). With good ammo I could get 1" groups to sub MOA @ 25 yds. Maybe 1 to 2" max at 50, I didn't have time to try out 100.

Next up is zeroing in the scope sitting on my 10/22 for an Appleseed KD next year.

The Troy micro battlesights might work well.

I just added another little doodad to my gun. It is a Devil Dog Concepts Side Charging Handle.

It works!!! and it was $135.

Here's a pic of my gun which has been performing perfectly since I built it last March 2017. Definitely my favorite Carbine.

Going for a PSA 24" upper soon so I can have a Long Range Rifle with a real scope on it. That's what I got the Side Charging handle for.

FYI... with the 10% off and free shipping code at Brownells you can get a SCR Monte stock lower for $539 - $53 = $485 shipped

Not horrible, though mine locally was less, plus no FFL fee.

Near Sacramento see Ron at Armory Outpost, have him order you one.

Picked mine up. This one has a stiff hammer spring - pulling the CH back over a sprung trigger is tough. My gen2 isn't like that IIRC. Trigger pull feels good like the gen2. Probably it'll go with one of these extra uppers.

The hammer spring in these is the same as an AR. You can swap it out for a lighter/heavier one as needed in just a couple of minutes.

Yeah it was just an observation coming from a Ares Gen2 Sporter to this FightLite branded MC lower, it was just a difference I noticed other than minor appearance difference. I most likely will not change a thing as long as it is reliable like my other one.

Fellow SCR owners. I built my gun with the intention of precision shooting. I decided to go a new direction. So if anyone is interested http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...highlight=Side

Well I finally got my 24" upper coming from PSA, they had two blems laying in the back and the guy I got on the phone was good enough to help me out and actually go look. It should be here Mon or Tues and I can get on with finishing my build on this gun.

Another 8" of barrel should give me 3000 FPS with 77 gr bullets easily which is what I need for getting to 1200 yards.

I have got a Millet 1-6X scope that I will use temporarily for the gun and that will get me to 6-700 yards fairly well but to go long I'll need at least 9-12X.

Don't know if you guys know it, but Front Sight has a really good Precision Rifle Course available now and Ken Gillette is the RM for the course. He does in fact know what he is teaching and I have taken the preliminary part of the course (essentially the first day of the 4 day course) and gotten started with it.

With the 16" Dissy Upper and the 24" upper I will have a complete system for Defense or Long Range Precision Shooting in one gun case. I actually bought a two gun case in anticipation of doing this.

Will post pics as soon as I get it together.

Randy

Here's some pics of the completed 24" gun. Hopefully they will reopen our range soon.

Note the DDC Side Charger which was necessary for this gun as I will be laying on the ground shooting it mostly. There is little access to the normal charging handle with the scope in this position. However it is still used on the 16" upper. The Fight Lite BCG interchanges between uppers.

The gun weighs 7.0 lbs with the 16" upper and 9.0 lbs with the 24" upper.

I got the front sling swivel attachment point yesterday and installed it so the Sling will interchange between uppers, and the only thing left is to install the Aim Sports Muzzle Brakes on both uppers coming in a few days.

This gun is a winner and anybody contemplating an AR style Carbine would do well to consider the Fight Lite Lower before ever looking at assembling a featureless AR which loses all the ergonomics of the gun.

I wouldn't say that at all... featureless AR's can be great. Lots of different ways to set them up. Thordsen's are really usable, and MIAD+Backfin setup feels like a on-purpose target grip to me.

How's that side charging attachment? Is it smooth or does it bind up? At 1200 yards with a 5.56 you are probably more worried about running out of internal adjustment than the magnification, right? Are you afraid your 5.56 is going to get blown about like a paper airplane at 1200?

Nice looking setup.

I have a side charging upper (Gibbz) on my SCR and that works great.

The ergo challenge with the SCR IMO is the check weld. With the sporter stock my sight line is below the rail. With the monte carlo I am just high enough to use the low irons from CZ. Still too low for a scope even with the lowest possible mounts.

Of course an adjustable cheek rest solves that issue.
