Several of the guys were discussing pigs and guns at lunch a few weeks ago and I tossed out the suggestion that an AR-15 in 6.8 SPC or 6.5 Grendel would make a good rig if you made it light and handy enough. Everyone thought it was a good idea and told me to order the parts. The result is below.
Lower receiver - Stag
Upper Receiver - LRB
Barrel - Palmetto State Armory 18" light profile 6.8 SPC II chamber graphite black cerakote
Handguard - Clark carbon fiber cut to 11"
Trigger - Geisselle SSA - Enhanced
Mount - Burris AR P.E.P.R.
Scope - various 2-7X and 3-9Xs This one happens to be a Nikon because it was in the safe looking lonely
Magazine - PRI 10 round (allow rounds loaded to 2.300" OAL)
I chose an A2 stock (which I am thinking about changing to an Ace skeleton), the other guys chose collapsible stocks because they have kids and want to let them hunt with them.
Without a scope or mount, the collapsible stocked guns weigh 5 lbs 13 oz, the A2 weighs 6 lbs 2 oz. The rifle in the picture weighs 7 lbs 7 oz all in.
We are thinking 95gr Barnes TTSX for hunting ammo. I hope they shoot.
