  1. The part number is: APRA100217C. Here is a link to one: https://www.primaryarms.com/APRA100017C_2 Building 300 blk pistol and thinking about using this. I have never used a M-lok style rail. I assume I need the special barrel nut as well. If this is a good one, I am looking for the best price I can find on it, shipped.

    Good Morning!

    Good morning from AL. Been a while since I frequented these here parts.
  3. Check this out: https://www.primaryarms.com/bca-stripped-ar15-upper-receiver
  4. So I keep going down the road of building this thing. If I use the cheapest parts I can find on PSA, this is what I come up with: Tacfire .223 Rem/5.56 Stripped Upper Receiver for Billet AR-15 Style Rifle, Hardcoat Anodized Black - UP01 - $51.56 PSA 5.56 Nitride MPI Full-Auto Bolt Carrier Group - 516446953 - $49.99 PSA AR15 Upper Build Kit - 28084 - 19.99 PSA 8.5" 300 Blackout Nitride 1:7 Barrel - $94.99 PSA Custom Nitride Pistol Length Gas Tube - $11.25 With tax it brings me to $246. With shipping it will be another $10 or 15. So call it about $260. This is without a rail. The only reason I am considering building it is so I can get a rail that will actually be big enough to tuck the can. Again, I would not mind buying one of the ready to go uppers, but I feel like I will not be happy with the rail and end up trying to sell it. I just don't see that little rail being worth much. I tried to search on PSA site and find it so I can get some good specs, but I can't find it. I assume it is just a generic rail they throw on these builds.
  5. I think my best bet is to just try to make it work with a shorter rail. In the future if I can find a rail that will go over it I will cross that bridge when I get there. I appreciate the input.
  6. I'm going to build it, so I can make it whatever. I just don't want to sacrifice noise reduction with a smaller diameter tube. If that will be the case, I feel like it may be better to just go with one of the shorter 7" rails and not worry about tucking it.
  7. Been a while since I have posted here. Hoping I can get some quick help. I want to build a 300 Blk pistol. I started out looking at complete uppers last night, but the tinkerer in me has me questioning whether or not I want to do that. Looking at these two: https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-7-5-300aac-blackout-1-7-nitride-9-lightweight-m-lok-upper-with-bcg-ch.html https://bkingsfirearms.com/shop/complete-upper-receivers/bkf-ar15-7-5-300-blk-1-7-twist-4150-barrel-w-9-25-slim-m-lok-rail-w-kak-flash-can/ either of these options seem okay, but I have several concerns. I do want a 1/7 twist because I plan on running 220gr subs for the most part. Torn on 7.5 or 8.5 barrel. I know I will get a little more velocity with the 8.5, but if the difference is negligible, I will go with the 7.5 because I want it as short as possible. The plan is to do a Form 1 and build a can. My ideal "look" for the gun would be for the can to tuck into the rail a bit. That is the reason both of the links above link to 7.5 barrels but have longer 9ish" rails. The thing I am worried about though is that the opening in the end of the rail will not be large enough diameter to tuck a can. If this is the case I will end up selling the rail to buy another that is big enough, and I know the cheap rail will be pretty much worthless... For this reason, it makes me consider just building the upper from parts. In other words, I wish I could find a complete upper minus the rail,but no such luck. If not, I'm not sure I can put the upper together for less than say, $300. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hey cncwhiz

    Well I'm only a month late on this I guess. I appreciate it guys. Hope everyone is doing well.
  9. I do not have a capability at this time to cut those flutes. It would require that fourth axis on the machine, which would be an indexing head /chuck. I could cut the threads manually on a lathe, but I do not have a CNC lathe at the moment.
  10. I have been in the machining trade for a long time and doing programming for over ten years. Finally, yesterday I finalized the deal on my first personal CNC mill. I should take delivery in a few weeks. I am so excited about it. If you want some details about the road I'm traveling, please, look here: http://ar15armory.com/forums/topic/143330-putting-myself-out-on-a-limb/page-3 This will be another general idea thread. I need suggestions of stuff you might be looking for. The simpler, the better. Complex parts are not really an issue, but I'm just trying to get off the ground. I'm going to start making little prototype parts to test and kick around. A few suggestions I have had are: Ambi charging handles Trigger guards (my own idea..not sure if it is worth doing or not.) Muzzle Devices (will kind of be limited with these, because I really need a cnc lathe to do them. ) sights - low profile irons, pop ups, etc. I need suggestions on these. anything else you can think of to attach to these rifles..anything with a tac rail or keyhole setup. What I'm looking for is something that somebody really wants but can't find..custom ideas. As always, Thanks for all of yall's input. It means more to me than you know.

    Help me decide on a new CC

    Thanks for the suggestion on the 245. After looking at it..I can.say I think I'd rather have the 220 carry variant. Also see the 220 elite dark carry, but the alloy frame is a deal breaker I think. I think polymer is more what I'm looking for to save weight.

    Help me decide on a new CC

    That sig P220 carry is awesome. I really like everything about it on paper. However, I don't know that I will be able to get one for under $900. Keep in mind I still have to buy a new holster that fits it and pay taxes or transfer fees. Hell I might as well go HK for $1k The Kahr would be an option. Does anybody have any experience with these personally? Wish I could find a dealer or private seller that would accept a custom knife as partial trade. That would knock of half or more of the price. lol
  13. I have been CC'ing a DW CBOB 1911 for about 6 years. It is a very nice commander 1911. After an incident I had the other day where I came close to having to use it, I again realized the importance of having a weapon that I am not so partial to for carry; because I assume that if it ever had to be used I would probably not see it for a long time, if ever. Things I want to get away from: mainly weight. I'm sick of the weight of a 1911. I want something easier to carry. Compact is not an issue at all, it is preferred. Preferences: -.45, (I do not like .40.), 9mm as a last resort. I want .45 because I already reload that for several guns. -I'd prefer single stack because it is slimmer and I carry in waist band. -Something with a bobtailed or rounded bottom rear of the handle. I have trouble with printing and a sharp, steep back only exacerbates the problem. The dream gun would be a HK45C. I Really like that thing, but $1k is dang ridiculous and kind of puts me in a bad mood. Do they intentionally price themselves out of the market? I know about the XDS and have shot one..that would be a consideration. I also know about the Glock G36. I am not a fan of the angle of the handle, as well as the handle on Glocks in general, so it's out. I don't see anything in in Walther's line that peaks my interest. M&P shields are nice, but I'd have to settle for 9mm. Again, not against it, just would rather have .45 Sig makes some nice stuff too, but again..the $$$ makes my head hurt. I don't mind paying for quality, but I'm not trying to go broke. Used would be an option..as long as it was taken care of. The only thing about used is that most nice guns hold their value so well, I might as well by new. Any suggestions and discussion would be appreciated.

    How would you handle this situation?

    Retcop. I hear you. to clear one thing up..I don't know that he had crashed. My description of the truck was just that. It just looked really beat up. It was pulled off on the right hand side of the road. Also, as stated, I did call 911, ands I did not tell the perp I was going to. By the time deputies got on scene (within ten minutes), he was gone and so was the vehicle. They said they rode the area for about twenty minutes and no sign of him or the vehicle. That's why I said..I sure wish that now I would have gotten the full license number. I only caught the first couple of characters..which indicated the vehicle was from the next county over. He was 30 miles from home, regardless.

    How would you handle this situation?

    Yes, but I still can't help but wonder..how was the truck gone not 30 minutes later, and what was he really up to? Was he scoping my place out? The neighbors? Did he think he was going to mug me? Hijack me? -All just scenarios that keep playing in my head..I mean that really could have ended badly had I not taken control of that situation. I just can't help but wonder if there was someone else with him, and what would have happened had I gotten out of my truck.
