    Not familiar with that brand.

    Thanks UPS!

    My local Ace Hardware has stuff like that. If there's one in your area, it's worth a try.

    Worth every dime. LMT Defender 2000.

    I know cheap ARs are all the rage nowadays, but you do get what you pay for (to some extent). If you're just looking for something to have fun with at the range, that's fine. But if you want something you can trust with your life, a $500 AR is a risky choice. Oh, and BTW...

    New to the AR15 world.

    We love AR-15 build projects here. So don't be shy.

    Knights SR15 Lower Problem

    I think it's safe to say they don't make or sell anything expressly for the purpose of propitiation. Although I suppose you could use their products for that purpose, if you so choose. https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/propitiation

    Knights SR15 Lower Problem

    Knights Armament: "... it's designed to accept all standard mil-spec lower parts kits." Rampy: "Knights Armament uses propitiatory parts ..." mkay... (btw it's spelled "proprietary") The only thing I agree with, in the Crochety Old Woman's rantings, is that you could contact Knights Armament. It wouldn't hurt.

    18" or 14.5" SPR

    Here's another "me too" vote. For the application you described, I think an 18" barrel would serve better.

    Knights SR15 Lower Problem

    Some lowers use a screw instead of a pin for the bolt catch. Although if that's the case, the lower should have included that screw. If it uses a roll pin, and the hole is the wrong size, then I think it's safe to say the receiver is defective.

    Selector detent - 80% lower issue?

    Looks like the detent isn't protruding far enough to positively engage the selector switch. If it were me, I'd drill the hole a little deeper.
  10. Just a heads-up: MidwayUSA currently has the Crimson Trace CMR-208 weapon light on sale for $49.99, with free shipping. It's roughly the same size as the InForce APL, and uses a CR123A battery. I bought one, and am pretty happy with it. There are several reviews on YouTube, if you want to check it out. I'm not affiliated with Crimson Trace or MidwayUSA, just passing along a deal.

  11. Do you see yourself ever reinstalling the original muzzle device? If not, then you can cut the crush washer to remove it. Otherwise, you could probably get away with stacking shims on top of the crush washer. Edit to add: cutting the washer with a Dremel tool would be risky. You could accidentally damage the muzzle threads. Like mentioned above, you could use dikes or side-cutters.

    Does the magnifier have a focus dial?

    Barrel help

    I went to the Ranier Arms website, and looked at some photos of their barrels (hint hint). It looks like they're marked on the underside, between the gas block and muzzle.
