  1. I've been looking at Faxon for a 20" rifle build, their "gunner" profile looks interesting, but it's not as lightweight as the Delton pencil.
  2. What do you recommend for a light 16” barrel for a simple carbine build with reflex sight? My purpose is a rifle that is optimized for CQB but still good out to 100 yards. My default choice is the Delton chrome lined 16” pencil barrel, which is both light and cheap. But I’m willing to spend a little more for better barrel. (I don’t want to mess with AR pistols at this time. I know that barrels are out of stock at the moment, I will wait for the barrel I want to be back in stock.)
  3. I am leaning that way now. I may build an upper 20" Faxon Gunner first (to compare apples to apples) to see how different it shoots and weighs.
  4. We have a first draft of the book: CivilShield Guide to Neighborhood Watch You can download the book here: https://www.civilshield.org/publication From the introduction: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. In an ordinary self-defense situation, waiting for the police to arrive is literally momentary; in the meantime, you are on your own. However, if the police are detained by more pressing matters elsewhere, such as a civil disturbance, you may be on your own for hours. In the event of a natural or man-made disaster such as an earthquake, rioting, civil unrest, or civil war, police may be unable or unwilling to respond to emergency calls for days, weeks or even months. The police may say, at some point, “We cannot enforce the law at this time. You are on your own.” Without Rule of Law (WROL) describes any situation in which law enforcement (municipal police, county sheriff, or national guard) is unavailable for an extended period of time. In WROL, you will need to survive on your own resources. And if government fails then it’s very likely that much of the economic and social infrastructure that we take for granted will fail with it. Even if stores are not looted, shelves will empty in a matter of days. In most situations it is far easier for a neighborhood to sustain itself cooperatively than for a single household survive alone. You can significantly improve your circumstances by organizing your neighborhood for the general welfare and common defense. Your goal, to put it simply, is to reestablish the rule of law within your own neighborhood. WROL is only temporary. Local, state, and national rule of law will eventually be restored. Indeed, you should do what you can to assist in its reestablishment. Once that happens, though, you will be held accountable for everything you did during WROL.
  5. I am thinking about building a simple rifle for a youngling. It will be a 16" barrel with mid length gas port. I'm tring to decide between a Faxon Gunner profile and a Delton lightweight profile. The advantage of the Delton is mainly lower weight (though it is also cheaper). I own two ARs that have 20" Delton lightweight barrels. (I may eventually switch one of them to a Faxon Gunner profile.) I've found that the rifle groups about 2 MOA but the point of aim moves as much as 2 MOA as the barrel heats up. I wouldn't mind the former but the later is very annoying. While I would prefer to minimize weight given the goal of this rifle I don't want to create frustration at acheiving accuracy. If the Faxon Gunner profile is more stable and precise I would choose that. But if they are equivalent in accuracy then I would prefer the lighter Delton. What do you think? https://faxonfirearms.com/16-gunner-5-56-nato-mid-length-4150-qpq/ https://www.del-ton.com/DTI-Del-Ton-Inc-AR-15-16-Light-Weight-Pre-Ban-p/bl1051f-bo.htm
  6. Yeah, but if its a fixed rear sight then wouldn't you have to elevate the optic? Or can you use the optic when it is center cowitnessed?
  7. Interesting! I was assuming I wanted flip up but I like that. It does require lower 1/3 Co witness setup, though.
  8. The Troy sight looks a lot like the discontinued PSA sight I have. I prefer that A2-like style.
  9. I found this aluminum BUIS pair: Feyachi Flip Up Iron Sight Front Rear Sight Compatible for Picatinny Rail and Weaver Rail of Rifle, Foldable Sights https://www.amazon.com/Feyachi-Compatible-Picatinny-Weaver-Foldable/dp/B07NQ5VV7D
  10. Flattop. I don't care about how it flips up so long as it is sturdy when up. The one I have is very much like the A2 rear sight with the dual-apertures and windage but not elevation (which is done on the front sight).
  11. Unfortunately, DPMS is owned by Remington which is in the financial doghouse at the moment, not sure if they are still alive: https://www.remingtonoutdoorcompany.com/dpms-firearms
  12. I am looking for a metalic, probably aluminum, metallic rear BUIS for a rifle with an A2 front sight. Last time I got one from PSA but they discontinued that model replacing it with a polymer sight. What do you recommend?
  13. Trijicon makes a LPVO scope, the Accupoint series, that features a fiber optic illuminated reticle which ought to be bright in proportion to the daylight. I'm surprised nobody else is doing this. The problem, of course, is that this is a $1400 scope. Trijicon AccuPoint 1-6x24 Riflescope https://www.trijicon.com/products/details/tr25-c-200090
  14. https://cameralandny.com/shop/athlon-optics-argos-btr-1-4x24-ahsr14-ffp-ir-mil/2e5f24e0-9bca-0135-032e-00163ecd2826?variation=1618144&query=argos btr 1-4x24 It looks good but not clear it is "daylight bright".
