  1. Clear poly. I see that now. Kinda cool looking if I zoom in.
  2. I’d love to build a 10-22 some day. I’ve thought about .22 WMR since I don’t still have a .22mag rifle (I MISS my Mossberg Chuckster) . My other dedicated .22 LR AR’s are RTB and I really love them. But my real question is about that lower… Is that bare aluminum? Is it ‘treated’ or coated in any way? I have wondered if a non-anodized lower needs to be polished, or painted, or lacquered, or…. What is that one? Can you use a bare aluminum lower? I love the look of that rifle.

  5. Good morning! (11:56 it still counts)
  6. (not sure if this is the best forum, or it it should be in ‘AR Pattern’ forum?) So I was showing my latest build to my cousin. Now he wants to build one. He was super impressed with my .22 LR and would eventually like a pistol in .22 also. I think it’s very reasonable to want a rifle and pistol in .22 as one’s first two guns. (I recommend an SR22, or a Super Single Six, or a Heritage as a budget-friendly alternative.) I explained that he’s getting in at a kind of tough time, but I’d do what I can. The tough part is finding one! Anyway, RTB doesn’t have .22 LR barrel/bolt -neither theirs or CMMG. Who knows how long before they have them. So… What about a 5.56, with a conversion kit? Advantage; If you swap the BCG, you have a 5.56 Advantage; you can actually find a barrel and conversion kit in stock Advantage; price is about the same Disadvantage; twist rate is way too fast- loss of accuracy. …but is it a fatal loss of accuracy? Will I feel badly for recommending doing it this way? Or will it be a good way for a greenhorn to get started? He really wants an AR. And he really wants to build. So something like a 10-22 is not what he is interested in.
  7. Welcome. Get comfortable and plan to stay a while. These folks are the best resource for AR’s -and general information about life- around! Also, post pics of your toys .
  8. Aww, man. I’m real sorry. I’ve lost dogs, but one was very special to me, and it hurts. I’m sorry for you and and your Mrs. It sounds like you did right by him, and it will help to know you didn’t let him hurt- but that means taking the hurt for yourself. Praying you can find comfort.
  9. Good point. I can’t really afford two. Maybe something that the same device will be sported on the AR as the G30s. John ”Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.” -Buckaroo Banzai Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. My LEO friends recommend laser. They say if a laser shows up, there’s data that says surrendering/fleeing happens more often than shots fired. I’ll have to think about this… Also, I’ll look at those other suggestions (I mean, that is why I asked!)
