My WOA upper delivered on 5-15-14.

My new WOA upper ( 18" Varmint 1 in 7" twist which is Fluted under hand guard & front of barrel. .223/5.56 ) was delivered to my home 5-15-14. Here it is put together with my Colt M4 lower which has a Giessele SSA-E trigger installed. I am very surprised that with all the extras you see ( scope, bipod & sling ) less the magazine it is perfectly balanced just in front of the magazine well.

Will try to do a ladder test with 69 gr. Sierra Match Kings to see what it likes best.

WOA UPPER on left.

PS: By the way I really like the Bushnell AR/223 scope with a 4.5-18x40mm zoom.

    GEE!!! I got my reloads completed for the ladder test and now it is raining. I'll have to do it during the week or next weekend.

    Finally got to shoot my first group with my deer hunting load of Sierra 65 gr. Game Kings. Two shots to sight in the scope then 5 shots at 100 yds. My next 5 shots for my ladder test with 69 gr. Sierra Match Kings was even smaller.

    I have the same upper, fluting and all. It is a very good shooter.

    I just changed my scope mounts to Warne Ultra High Aluminum QD which are 1.5" from the top of the Picatinny rail to the center of the 1" scope tube. They are ultra light, but very strong and give me a perfect cheek weld and eye relief.

    I also have a B-SQUARE bubble level to help me hold the rifle vertical from shot to shot. You can see it just behind the rear scope mount.
