Default First BUILD

this is my first actual build. It was excruciating to find parts as you all know lol.

anyway here she is. don't mind the missing bolt catch lol, i lost the roll pin. fixing that tonight.





comments and suggestions welcome, i've kind of hit "writers block"

Upper: Vltor MUR 1A
Barrel: 14.5 BCM BFH LW midlength 1/7 + pinned welded smith vortex
Lower: Palmetto State Armory (I have a spikes too, wondering if i should use that instead..) PSA LPK
BCG / CH: RCA / GF mod 3
Handguard: Samson Evolution 12.37"
Stock: CTR
Magazine: magpul 10/20
Use: eye candy


Grip: MOE (have moe forward grip too, but no rail section to attach too)
Optics: Eotech 552 (is that the proper spot to put it?)
Sights: Magpul gen 1

I plan to maybe upgrade the iron sights to troys. other than that, thats the way she'll be.. this setup is extremely light!

Thanks in advance for any answers to my questions, and suggestions

Finally got my hands on a BAD *** and a B5 Bravo. Also ditched the tape switch in favor of the more simple and lightweight clicky cap. This rifle is such a soft shooter and very lightweight. My new favorite for sure. Still need to get my hands on an IO cover for the Aimpoint and it will be done.

Is that for sure the Weaver QD mount, or the CAA DVSR?

I have and pretty much everything except the BCG and the hand guards.

Any help from the experts?

I like your bayonet...If you don`t want the bayonet to rattle on the the barrel I would suggest buying a bayonet barrel adapter from tacticool 22 products its only 16.50 plus a few bucks for shipping. I Have one on my rifles and they work great www.tacticool22.com its under the miscellaneous gear section.

So this was my first AR, and it has been going through several iterations. I call it Ascalon, after the spear of St. George.

Please note that all pictures were taken in Montana, well before the Air Force recently moved me to CA. Everything I have is legally configured and my standard magazines are safely in FL with my family.

This was how I first envisioned it, as a general purpose do-all carbine (with a high emphasis on what I thought "looked cool"):



Centurion Arms Lightweight CHF 16" barrel
AAC Blackout
BCM BCG/Bolt
Seekins 10" BAR forearm
Magpul ACS, MIAD, MBUS
Spikes ST-T2 buffer
Tango Down Stubby QD
Elzetta ZFL-M60 in Gearsector mount
Geissele SSA Trigger
Trijicon TR24G in an ADM RECON-H mount

I enjoyed this set up for a while. Very soft shooting, and it definitely drew attention at the range. But I found that I wanted a longer forearm that I could actually wrap my hand around. The BAR earns its name, and was just too wide for me. I was also having issues with short stroking in the cold Montana winters, so I wanted to switch buffer systems. I also found that when shooting prone or for precision, the raised height of the RECON-H mount was not helping with a good cheek weld, and it hurt my neck a bit to crane it up.

This is iteration 2



Swapped the BAR for a 12" Rainier/Samson Evolution
Swapped carbine buffer for VLTOR A5 system with Emod
Changed out SSA for SD-E trigger
Replaced Gen 1 MBUS sights with Gen 2 black (not pictured)
Removed ZFL-M60 and now use a TLR-1s mounted at 12 o'clock in front of sight
Replaced the RECON-H mount with ADM SCOUT mount (not pictured)

The new configuration weighs nearly a pound less (previously 9 pounds even as shown in previous picture). Since using it this way, I've decided that I want to have more fun at longer ranges, so I have a Vortex PST 2.3-10x32 FFP on order along with a regular ADM RECON mount. I may also choose to go lighter on the stock. I also plan on installing a Battlecomp or something similar to further soften the recoil.

I have another that is my lightweight social gun. No pictures of that one though, not without showing the whole collection.

Other pics:
