Standard BCG from Armalite and I did upgrade to a Tubbs Flat recoil spring, but only because I don't think it's as noisy. I'm not 100% sure if it makes any difference in reliability.
The adjustable gas system is more important. The Armalite upper has the gas port an extra 1/4" away...to help keep it from getting over gassed. The adjustable gas port helps to tune it even more, especially when running suppressed.

Mine is a factory Armalite upper that I customized to suit. The BCG is factory Armalite.
As far as I know...Accuracy Systems is the only one that still has bolts left from the time when DPMS and Armalite were doing builds. SHOT 2011 had a POF that was using a .532 bolt, but that's not come to age yet. Kies Guns was working on a magnum AR10 as well, but that's been 2 years now.
The bag around my neck is the Alaska Guide Creations Bino Pack. The previous version had an uncomfortable neck strap so I swapped it out for one that rode more on the shoulders.
Jarret Owens has since redesigned the strap and it's an amazing piece of gear. I never head to the field without it.
Everything I might need in a hurry, right on my chest. I've been working on a review of it, but I guess that's not allowed here...as I was warned not to post my coyote hunting
videos because they were too much like advertisements.
