That looks cool, are the bullets tiny? Isn't that smaller than a pellet gun pellet? Is the ammo cheap?

Cool gun, but $130 magazines Maybe you won't need to change mags though

That yours? If so, what's your thoughts on it. I'm on the fence about one, not as a fighting rifle just as a gun that I can hunt with/ woods walk.

Haven't shot it yet. Fixed sights just came in a couple of days ago and were quickly tossed on.

Feels pretty good in dryfire, pretty slick. The proof will be in the firing of course and the only real open question is how hard will extraction be? Troy says to only use brass cased ammo in the gun, I guess steel might make it a bit harder to work the action?

Almost every AR manufacturer or company says to use only brass cased ammo.

My understanding is that steel cases lack "elasticity"(?) and may make it more 'interesting' to physically work the action to get the extraction going - there is no gas pressure to do it for the shooter. Don't really know, though.

I'll find out soon enough as to how well it works with brass. ( Frankly, I leave steel case to commie calibers and rifles anyways. )

Default Thank You!

I want to thank everyone for their input.

I did not build an AR from the ground up to be a range toy, it is now a featureless rifle. I got the Resurgent Arms kit:

https://resurgentarms.com/collection...17459439173697

Then a trip to Lowe's for an 1/8" roll pin for the Magpul CTR stock fix.

After reshaping the sharp edges on the endplate this grip is very comfortable. You can't use this grip with a fixed stock though, you need the buffer tube to be exposed at the front to be able to get your thumb around it. The only real problem I had was getting my flash hider off but I just made a barrel clamp out of hardwood by drilling a hole and cutting through the middle. Clamped it in the vise and wacked the wrench with a hammer and it came loose.

I think now I will need to get an extended safety lever because I can't reach it with my thumb.

Good choice.
You can fix your CTR stock without drilling anything.
See our YouTube channel for a video showing this.

I came up with my own method that still requires tools but can fix the stock in any position, or remove it.
