Yeah. I know what you mean. The feeling that is flowing through me right now is indescribable. This is my 1st AR-15 build. Now I have to sit here and wait for my scope to arrive. I would buy the rings now. but I'm not sure which height to get. I have a set of 1/2" riser blocks mounted on top of the flat top. Scope objective lens is 50mm.

I have a 20 and a 24 and they are both rock steady on the bipod. I prefer the RRA uppers. If I was building another I think I would spring for the Lilja bbl and put the upper together myself though they might not improve a lot on th 5/8" groups I'm capable of at 100 with these two.

If you pm me an address I'll send you a couple of the 3' poles left over from a broken down ground blind and some bicycle inner tube when I get back to the house. Works like a charm and real cheap and durable.

5/8" groups sounds great!

Re: Building an AR-15 for Coyote - 24" barrel?

I"m with Ican., I had a 24 in bull barrel,yup, as heavy as it sounds on a nice DPMS rifle. It got to wear I didn't want to haul it around any more. I was gonna have the barrel chopped and recrowned but a buddy wanted it and gave me $ for what a 16 inch barrel would run. It's a bull 16" barrel that is much lighter then the 24, wish I had weighed them. Anyway, no loss of accuracy using Win. 55 gr. BST and Nikon M-223 3-12 Rapid action Turret scope. I had shot the 24 in. barrel to 623 yards and taken this one to 500 yards blowing up a 4inch jar of tannerite. I now use a DPMS Prairie Panther as my Coyote gun. Topped with a Nikon Coyote Special 4.5-14 Scope, it is has quickly become my favorite Coyote gun. Pretty too!
