    Expo Arms Barrels?

    I believe Expo is Primary Arms' private label. I was looking at them, too for my last build but I missed their sale and went another direction instead.

    State just shut my office down!

    Exactly what we've been saying, too. It's like treating the disease by killing the patient.

    Latchless Charging Handles?

    I think it was the Daily Shooter on youtube that had a latchless charging handle hit him in the face. I believe it was on a pistol build. Strike Industries specifically states that their latchless handles are not recommended for use on pistols because of the back pressure. On the flip side, I've seen them used on 16" rifles without any issues.

    Need advice on a new build

    I've purchased a 10.5" barrel and a few other parts from Grid/Ghost. So far quality has been fine. Communication and shipping has also been good. I only have one range trip with the barrel. First round was a failure to extract but that could have been my bolt or the Frontier ammo. Swapped the bolt and after that I put another couple hundred rounds through it without issue. The barrel is slightly over-gassed so a heavier buffer is in order. I haven't shot for groups. This first trip was break in. According to Grid/Ghost they turn most of their barrels in-house and occasionally farm out to Bear Creek if they need to meet demands.
  6. Two different companies. Both are good!

    Decent Nitride BCG Deal @ PSA

    Another great deal for $59.95! Picked one of these up. Phosphate. Chrome Lined. Great quality! Individually HPT and MPI tested, great staking, C158 bolt. Specs are right and quality rivals BCM. I'd say pick one up while you can. https://www.righttobear.com/RTB-Phosphate-Bolt-Carrier-Group-158-HP-p/rtb-m16-hpt-mpi.htm

    Anderson Lower Parts Kit with Stainless FCG

    Will do! I've also got a couple spare springs and a roll pin that are begging to go into a new build.

    Anderson Lower Parts Kit with Stainless FCG

    I have used Anderson's Gen 1 and Gen 2 stainless lower parts kits. Both have good triggers. For the same price I feel the Gen 2 is the better buy. The Gen 2 has ground trigger and hammer engagement surfaces. Also the Gen 2 has a revised hook on the hammer/disconnector area to address trigger reset issues some people experienced with the Gen 1. I wouldn't have any problems using the Anderson stainless LPK's again in the future. This is where I get mine. They often go on sale for $39.99: https://www.righttobear.com/anderson-manufacturing-lower-receiver-parts-kit-p/g2-k421-a000-0p.htm

    I’m gonna stop for a bit

    Good looking pistol. I've always liked the nested flash can look. I use KAK flash cans or KVP linear comps on all my pistols in 5.56 or 300 blackout from 8.5" to 11.5" barrels. I find they work great at directing the concussion down range, feeling a lot like a 16" barrel with A2.

    Advice on BCG

    Haven't used Fail Zero, but I really like my Nickel Boron Toolcraft.

    Tell Me About Hexmags

    Never have had a problem with my Gen 1 or Gen 2 Hexmags. They work well with my 5.56 and 300blk. I have several pmags, GI mags, and Lancer mags as well. My absolute favorite are the Lancers, but all have been reliable.
