  1. Built 2 ar uppers (6 x 45 and .264 LBC-6.5 Grendel clone) using SLR 7 handguards, adjustable gas blocks and gas tubes. I tested these rifles for function, and after waiting over a year for the stamps (suppressor), I finally started shooting them for accuracy. Both have unexplained fliers. In looking my builds over, both guns have the gas block hitting the inside of the handguard. Calling SLR is a waste of time. They don't even answer the phone, but force you to leave your phone number. I paid $400 for each guns parts-yes $800. Turns out the problem is well known: http://forums.brianenos.com/topic/218871-gas-block-hitting-handguard/ http://www.weaponevolution.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-8356.html just a heads up. These guys cost me hundreds of dollars in gas for trips to the range and wasted ammo in addition to the defective parts.
  2. OK. I'll swap the pin measure the protrusion and shoot them up and go to reloading. Definitely a lot easier than disassembly to harvest the brass. I'd bet you hunch is correct and that 7.62 bolt came with an enhanced firing pin. That you for helping me sort it out and come up with a course of action After dealing with the suppressor, adjustable gas block, scope and now this, my head was swimming. With weather and other stuff, I've been working on this project for a year and a half. Thanks again, you've helped me greatly.
  3. I have 25 rounds of that ammo left. I ordered a couple new ss firing pins. I think I'll start handloading now. I'll just disassemble those rounds for the brass and bullets. I don't want to ruin another firing pin if it's the ammo.
  4. Is the 7.62 firing pin the same as the 5.56?
  5. Can I use a standard ar firing pin or do I need a 7.62 non enhanced firing pin?
  6. Can I just order an ar firing pin or do I need one for the 7.62 x 39 bolt.
  7. I'll try changing the firing pin. If that doesn't work, I found a place that sells a bolt made for the 6.5 Grendel. Sound good?
  8. It is a new barrel. Been fired about 25 times. I measured the firing pin protrusion. I get .047-.048. Seems like a lot to me. I read guys getting .024.
  9. Been testing my .264 LBC BHW barrelled AR. Been shooting factory 6.5 Grendel 123 SST ammo, and not happy with the accuracy. Lots going on since I am shooting suppressed, adjusting the gas block and scope. I just noticed I have a couple of pierced primers. Where should I start diagnosing he problem? The firing pin, the bolt, or the headspacing?
  10. Thanks for the heads up on the double ended Wilson bushings. The Reddings would come out to 3X the $$.
  11. I have Hornady brass. Will look into the Wilson bushings.
  12. How will I know which bushings I need and what seater die do you recommend?
  13. I've seen some opinions on this, but simply put: Hornady, Redding, or Forster, 2.64 LBC or 6.5 Grendel, any special shell holder?
