I was stating that it's against the law for the ATF to track anything we do without just cause...not that they DON'T do it. I also think that our Gov't feeds off this Big Brother concept. It makes them look ALL POWERFUL. Maybe more so than they really are. I'm not minimizing their reach, but sometimes I doubt it's as far as they'd like you to believe.

Big brother doesn't know as much as they'd like you to think. Think about all of the private sales of weapons that happens every day that aren't recorded at all.

Actually, that one is a personal gun though not a hobby gun. Home gun/truck gun. The Eotec and magnifier have been replaced by an Aimpoint Micro T1. The can is an AAC M4-1000. If I were going to buy another 5.56 can I would do the AAC SR5.

Pro's- It's quieter, the report is similar to a .22lr. You can shoot it comfortably withoout any ear pro. Would I do that all day? No, but if I had to jump out and deploy the gun quickly I would not be concerned about any hearing damage, likewise, greatly reuces the risk of hearing damage if the carbine is fired in an enclosed environment.

I have supressors for .22, 5.56 and .45 acp. I am fond of saying that I own hearing protection for my friends who don't won supressors, lol.

Modern supressors enhance accuracy and increase muzzle velocity. Google "Free Bore Boost."

Con's-It does increase the back pressure in impingment guns which can accelerate wear on some parts, though I don't think significantly. That back pressure often comes out throough the charging handle recess, so sometimes when firing you may feel like someone just "blew" into your face. Not a big deal.

KBR97 Soooo....the handgaurd came last week, and the ejection port assembly, forward assist, and charging handle came yesterday. Now I'm just waiting on the bolt and then I need to decide on sights or optics...or both.



Luckily for me I had pretty much all the parts on order before all this BS went down.
Oh and I also ordered another upper, DPMS .22LR ...So excited


I'm thinking of going with a fixed 10x on a quick detach base and then some flip up iron sights.

The dot is not as crisp, there with the outer ring there is a lot going on in the field of view, and like so many others, I found it shutting off for a second or two during some drills. It is stuck back in the safe for now, but likely will never buy anything but Aimpoint ever again.

Carlsbad0331 Well there is one less Bushmaster owner this afternoon... Seems this 24 year old had good taste in weapons. A Bushmaster, Glock 17 and Sig 226.

YJ fanatic Here are a couple. I built the far right one. Its a Palmetto State Armory upper, Aero Precision lower. The center is a Spikes Tactical, and the left is my WASR 10/63.

brian d Really no need to have a shop build the lower. It is very easy to do with common tools. Save for a good optic. I had a cheapo red dot in this picture, but just got an Eotech 512, and it is the BOMB!

97wrangler-242 So is it an organization that monitors things or just like a rule of thumb that's a good idea to follow? I mean, I wouldn't see an issue with threads like this or fire arm forums just talking about our guns as a hobby. Just as we discuss what lift and tires we have, how would it pose a threat to discus our guns?

It's important militarily speaking. The less the enemy knows about our troop movements/operations, the better.

Impingement. I'm trying to keep it as basic and "cheap" as possible. Ordered the hand guard yesterday. And hopefully by next month I'll have everything else to get it all together and ready to shoot.

KBR97 Yes I am ressurecting a really old thread that I started. Why? Because over 2 years ago I made this thread looking for info about the AR15 rifle. Well after a long while I finally "pulled the trigger"...and started accumalating parts to build my very own.
I did some bartering with a buddy and got this from him....




Then everything went to hell and I started ordering parts....the 18" DPMS Mark12 barrel, stripped DPMS upper and YHM brake came today...




Annnnd.....this free float YHM handguard is on the way...




When its all said and done, I would like to have a set of flip up sights, and a low-mid power scope with quick detach base.

That is all, Carry on...
