Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Sounds like you're on the right track on getting it finished up. Who are you going to have do the cerakote?

I was going to do it myself but since I'm getting Ross to do the barrel work too I'll have Ross's Gunworks in Dallas do it.

I've seen a lot of his work that was very good, and I've only heard one guy complain about it and he was a guy who insisted on picking his rifle up early, tossed it in a padded case and then got upset when he unpacked it at his hunting destination and found it had rubbed off in a couple of places.

Cerakote is just about as good as armor but you HAVE to let it cure before doing anything like that.

The other thought I'm toying with is just building another upper with a .800 straight contour to the gas block and then stepping it down past there to .725 and having the foreward portion fluted with six grooves, the covered portion with four deep grooves.

Everything I'm reading tells me that you really max out at about 20-22" as far as velocity gains go with that case.

Below is the STW. This is the same camo pattern I will eventually do on all of my rifles. I call it my "custom Mesquite Grassland Pattern".

Start with the lightest color (Sand) as the base coat and then stretch a camo net over it for the honeycomb pattern and apply the darker colors in stripes.

If I'd done the barrel on it the same as the stock and scope you'd have as hard a time picking it out in the picture as the bobcat!

I just have the one I built and shoots less than 1.0 MOA with federal ammo.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Yep, I too have stepped in to the dark side. Built mine for short/mid-range (<300 yds) predator hunting.
16" bbl, 1:9
Leupold Mark AR 1.25-4x
I shot some cheap 55 gr fmj for the functional check and to get on paper at 100 yds.
I've got some 55 gr Hornady SP and Sierra 65 gr SPBT that I'm going to load up this week. If I can get 1.25-1.5 MOA accuracy I'll be a happy camper.
