Will close a house in a few months and can't start my build yet :( In the meantime, I was planning on some parts. What do you think?

1) Barrel: I am deciding between a 18-20. Probably a Mega barrel, Fulton Arnory or from Rainiers.
2) Rail: Troy 308 TRX 13.8 inch/12
3) Stock: PRS .308
4) Optics: Probably a Vortex or Nikon.
5) Ill definitely install a Geiselle trigger(SSA E) ; love the triggers on both my ARs.
6) brake/flash: haven't decided yet.
Then I am deciding as well if I should stick with all black rifle or a two tone with burnt bronze. My other 2 rifles are FDE and OD green.

Here's the Maten! Next time you'll see it it will be a built rifle(I hope).

I got the mega 20" as it has rifle length gas. Their 16" and 18" are both medium gas length.

Did you shoot yours yet? I have nit seen a lot of Mega barrels review since its fairly new in the market.

Yup only with iron sights though. Still saving up for an optic. I have no complaints so far. I was holding out for a rainier arms barrel since they were OOS during my build but could not wait that long. I was up near riflegear and they had the mega barrels in stock so I took the chance.

The PRS is a bit heavy but I enjoy using it.
And considering you're using a PRS I'm guessing you intend to use this for more precision-type shooting, so I'd go with a Geissele 2 stage adjustable trigger because I've never used anything better.
Go with a lightweight rail because this rifle is getting heavy.

-This is all from personal experience.

Yea, I'm building my Maten right now.. Mine is the one with the "monolithic" key-mod rail..

I'm going with a 16" Mega stainless barrel and Surefire brake.. also the SSA-E trigger and Magpul UBR stock.

Dying to get it finished and to the range..

Another MATEN builder here. I have the regular length Key Mod, and have an 18" Superior barrel. I'm also using a PRS stock.

Just need a few more parts and I'm ready to go.

Looks like you have some top quality components there. I look forward to seeing your finished build. Have you thought about doing a Magpul CTR stock with Larue Tactical RISR and POD + Versa Pod monopod. That would give you a Larue Tactical OBR style setup since your components seem more geared toward long range precision. If you do have high scope rings or a 20MOA riser, the Larue RISR will help you get a better cheek weld.

Hahaha I wish ! Lol but the rifle has to wait I guess. Instead of barrels, I'll be on a hunt for washer/dryers and some appliances.

Thanks ! I will look into that as well. Anyone has an opinion on some muzzle brake?

I went through the same thing last year and a short sale. Tough not being able to put as much towards your hobby as you would like but worth it in the long run. Nice receiver
