Default My bug bite turned into the plague

I just finished my latest rifle. A RRA A2 uppered carbine (I wanted to be defferent from the 6 position, flatty, m4 crowd) and I wanted to have some fun with it and the rest of my collection at my dad's place in NV. The first thing my dad said when he saw my toys was "looks like that little bug bite of yours has turned into the plague." I could only say "thats what happens when its left untreated!" lol. I also though I'd sneak my dad's little toy in a pic.

On a side note, I did not know RRA barrels were so damn thick. I was worried my Surefire RIS would not fit. lol.

Great looking stable you've got there!

Would you mind giving details on the top rifle? I'm new to ARs and am not sure what I'm looking at, but that's EXACTLY the configuration I've been thinking about for my first build.

Thanks!

Nevermind, OP listed the rifle's parts. I was pretty close to getting it all right, though.

The whole upper is DPMS. I replaced the old gas block with a railed one by DPMS also.

Thanks very much for the quick reply.

Is the free float tube custom?

What twist rate is the barrel, and do you happen to know if DPMS chambers to minimum SAAMI specs?

Thanks.

Its a vented DPMS tube. I had to ask for it specifically in order to get it. its a 1/9 twist with the SAAMI chamber. I get 1 inch groupings at 100 yards with American Eagle 55 grain. I get groups under .3 inches with black hills 55 grain.

There is also one of those tac latches on it. Its kind of a must for low mounted scopes on flat tops.

I just want everyone to know that DPMS makes one hell of a high quality AR. People keep ranking things on a tier system with reference to what makes a "combat rifle". DPMS does not make combat rifles. None of their rifles are "combat rifles". However, all of their rifles are highly accurate sporting rifles. If their was a tier system for AR sporting rifles I'd place DPMS in a top spot.

That's not really an A2 upper... the receiver is, but that configuration is not. A2 would be carry handle and 20" barrel, just fyi.

How well does that sight on the AK hold zero? I was curious, since AK gas tubes aren't necessarily known for not moving around a bit. I once thought of doing this to an AK I was interested in, but didn't for that reason. I'd love to know, as this seems like a great setup for rapid taget acquisition.

The ultimak scope mount on the AK holds and maintains a true zero. It replaced the old gas tube and clamps securely to the barrel. Furthermore, it does not touch the front site/trunnion area and the front of the gas tube assembly on the barrel so that it won't move once clamped due to firing. Its the best AK mount out there but its only good for dot optics.

My dad's AR pistol is a select fire Armalite/CMMG pistol. I'll see if I have more pics. I'm home in cali now. lol.
