Mike.....just put the MOE on. Its got a better cheek weld than the M4 stock did.

I used to run a CTR on mine until I put glass on it and switched to a VLTOR Emod that has the "wings" on it. I'm much more consistent with it. When I put my face to the stock the glass is clear. I used to have to hunt for it when I had the CTR on there. If the ACS had been available at that time, I would have gone that route instead.

I like the ERGO sure grip, but the Hogue is nice if you like the finger grooves. If Magpul would put a rubber overmold on their MIAD I would be more interested in it.

Me either. But you can find deals on ARFCOM from time to time. I found a Larue LT-104 for $170 shipped new in the package. They go for $195 + tax + shipping straight from Larue.

I'd pick the ergo above those Joey, but if you are set on that, get a MIAD and get the enhanced trigger guard separate. The full has the enhanced but is built into the grip, not as sturdy IMO.


If you are looking for a discount, shop ARFcom's EE like Mike said, looking to get a promo code from those to is like looking for hens teeth.

I found a code for Magpul thru G&R Tactics, but it was expired.

LaRue's goody package makes it worth orderin strait from them.

Actually, yes the 300WM is making in roads to the Army sniper teams for ranges further than the 308 and dont want to carry a .50.

its easier and cheaper to buy a ctg that can be mass produced easily and not require waiting for mfrs to tool to a new round, when stuff is all over the place for the 300WM already.

Awesome! I'm still up in the air on who's system to get, can't decide if I want Larue, LMT, or Noveske. Either way I'm going 16".

Is there a list for 762 guns?

Hopefully my b&c stock will be in soon for my 308 build.

That's about what you get in all that free stuff!


Have any of you seen any reviews on the LMT 308 gun? Oh krap, who am I kidding, I'll wait for someone to shoot 100 rounds down there OBR and buy it off Arfcom for about 2500 instead. But, I do really like that LMT gun. Big plus the OBR has though is the gas port valve hootus (thanks Joey) for shooting suppressed. I'm going with a Trijicon Acog for the OBR gun.

Waiting on a box any day from Trijicon, my bolt just showed up from getting the firing pin replaced and cerakoting!

Any of yall know some place where I can get my barrel threaded and cerakoted on the cheap but high quality? Everywhere I've called has quoted me 300+. I'm going to cerakote my barrel, scope base, bolt, and rings tan, then leave my action, bottom metal and dm's black, on a tan with black web stock.

Question UMC vs FED

Has anybody noticed a difference betwixt UMC and FED?

I have several mags full of both at 55 grns and wanted to know if they hit different.

I agree but really how many Dillos, hats, stickers, and dillo dust do ya need?

Can't help ya on the Cerakote but my smith only charged me $100 to cut down and thread my barrel and install my Mickulek comp and clock it perfectly so no crush washer was necessary.

What'cha got coming from Trijicon?

Oh, and I'll have to stick with my lowly DPMS .308. After all it will only shoot 4 shot groups of .213" off a bipod with a mediocre shooter behind it.

I hear ya on the swag. BTW their new UDE freebie hats are nice.

I have two accupoints coming, a 3-9 for my 6.8 and a 5-20 for my TC 338 Win, both mil dot with green dots.

Spikes is going ahead with their SR25 308 build. Looks like I'm going to hold off on the OBR. It will be about a year or so though. Which is good, this 6.8 and my two bolt guns with cans is enough for this year! I over did it slightly! I will mid summer probably pull the trigger on a custom 10/22. Been talking to a guy in upstate New York.

Joey,

Both shoot about the same. Out of all my ammo I use those two the most!




Billy,

I love the krap out of your Noveske posse! If I do a 223 SBR, I'm going with a Noveske! Beautiful!

How do you like that AFG?

DPMS makes a good product no doubt!

Go with the 12 Billy, just don't forget the PRI fat boy gas tube!

I don't understand the AFG, don't you want something to push against not pull towards your shoulder, pushing your gun with your off hand, like you are trying to pull it apart in different directions, decreases muzzle climb.

No, you pull toward your sholder with you off hand. I have a couple AFG grips and will send you one if you want to try it, just through it back in the mail when you decide if you like it or not. I like short verticle grips more than the AFG but my grip is the same on either. My thumb is on top of the weapon facing the target, fingers on the grip, while pulling the weapon back into my shoulder. Square your shooting stance and try it, you might be surprised at how fast you can get off some shots.

Got the OBR setup this weekend but my pregnant wife did not feel good so I didn't go to the range. Ill try to snap some pictures tonight and post them up.

Larue OBR

Interesting. I would have thought otherwise. I may try one on my 6.8.

Dang Travis, as big of a Chris Costa fanboy as you are I thought you would have known that.

Look around, that is his shooting style and hence the reason behind the design of the AFG.

If anyone has a DPMS Upper they want to sell I need one to complete a build , nothing fancy really and would prefer 16" .

I was/am a Bolt Action Rifle , Beretta 9MM , and 1911 guy until the last election and decided to to get some Black Guns while you still can , picked up a NIB Colt 6830 7.62X39 and a nice somewhat Custom Rock River 16" , have slowly started appreciating the AR Platform . . .

Marceco,

You can get a LMT or BCM standard A3 upper with M16 bolt carrier for around 625.00. You can get a DPMS for around 500. IMO you would be much much better off. Twice the upper for 100 more.

M4 & tbh is really all i cruise on a regular basis...lightfighter gets peek every now and then. You can pick up a gem over at silencertalk from time to time too.

for specific questions i'll do rimfirecentral / the hide / br.com / 1911 / shotgunworld / S&W / coltforum...we are blessed with good sites and smart folks who like to share. Some are just more friendly than others

It's no Dillon, but WAAYYY faster than the rock chucker set up.

Got my 5.56 / forester set up more user friendly. Didn't like the long handle and wanted to save the original...so, found a piece of metal and with some rescue tape and heat shrink tubing:

How the heck am I supposed to get any work done with a box from LaRue sitting on my desk?

Love me some Larue boxes!

Just an FYI, cheaper than dirt is generally a rip, but they have a good deal going on mags right now.

Well it was actually a bit long check cashed Feb 1, pending March 3rd, my reviewer went on Maternity leave March 8th. I found out last week that it was not given to a different reviewer and was sitting in a pile on her desk. Typical government operation, do your work and that's it! Annoying that they wouldn't give it to someone else! She returned to work last week and completed it.

I sent my SBR off the same time and had it back April 6th or so. Turn around is speeding up, usually 60 days max.

I'm going trust from the get go. Much less hassle and much more flexible.

i have a can on leo...can one transfer it to the trust w/out going through nfa or does that even matter legally in the inheritance aspect??

The trust route is indeed less hassle if you are new to the class iii game.

Man this stuff is COOL...........and the things I ordered are nice too

Got my QD mounts mounted for both my EoTech and my 2.5-10x50 Vortex glass. I am now set for sniping and close quarters combat all in one set up! That is until I can build me a true sniping AR rifle.

This crap is addicting!!!!
