  1. The cheapest I have seen is 220.00 on sale. Sales are just around the corner. And I will be in no position to participate. I need an increase of my allowance.
  2. Now that my friend is one badazz gun.

    What Gun-Related Stuff Have You Done in the Past 48 Hours?

    Well, I tried somewhat and decided to punt. Not that long ago, I would have kept going to the point of destruction. PSA rep over at arfcom was very generous. Offered to send me a round cap or better yet, send me a free return label and let them square it away. I've noticed in the past several months they've been jumping through hoops to satisfy customers. Clearly on me. Late last night I discovered the "norm" for a middy or rifle length barrel w/ fsb is to include the triangular cap. Windham and perhaps another or 2 are the exception. They go round cap. Needless to say, though this will slow the build somewhat, I'm beyond appreciative for PSA's (Josiah at the other forum) offer to cover my ignorance. Dammit!

    What Gun-Related Stuff Have You Done in the Past 48 Hours?

    Damn, what now! Received my new FN barrel complete with A2 flash hider (not indicated in ad), fsb, and delta assembly. Awaiting my new mid-length hand guards (round A2-style). As I was lusting over and putting away the barrel, I noticed something and went "OH shat!!!". It has the triangular front cap. Through researching, it appears that "A2" HGs will fit either triangular or round caps. Great!. Now I'm here to tell you, there's about a 50/50 split online as to whether that's true or not. I grabbed my old DPMS round guards and tried. No way. Bottom one fits fine but no way will the top half. Pretty sure those HGs I await for will not either. I happen to have the round cap I had removed from my DPMS. And I have the Wheeler bench block that accepts the fsb. And assorted hammers and punches. Reckon I'll be learning how to remove and install a damn fsb. Kind of look forward to learning something new but not all that thrilled about. I might go for it today. Overnight soak in Kroil (single drop per tapered pin). Sure wish it wasn't necessary. Though the flash hider was mentioned nowhere or shown in the pic, a nicer install has never been seen by these eyes. Perfectly centered and even the flats are vertical. Oh well. That's pretty much how this build is going.

    Buttstock Question

    Two days ago I submitted a question to the seller regarding the fact he had posted the item as Colt only. Explained to him I was unaware of Colt having one and included the item looked exactly like an item manufactured for RRA and one or two other brand names. He has yet to reply but I checked his item for sale moments ago. Well, well, well. He now has the following ('nuff said): Colt? A2 Shorty Buttstock Butt Stock-Buf. AR15 M16 FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, YOU ARE BIDDING ON ONE COLT, RRA ? A2 SHORTY ~7.5" Buttstock - Butt Stock, Buffer & Spring for AR15 M16.
  6. Makes me sick to see the bastiage.

    Buttstock Question

    Thanks Tack. So a SP1 "E" is nothing more than an A1 "E" type. Being SP1, I was hoping it was a A2 but, at A1 length. Additionally, there's a Colt (not interested) "Shorty" (7.5") fixed stock for sale. Looks like one of those basic "entry" stocks. Did Colt ever make such? Thanks. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/838013168

    Great.
  11. Welcome to the forum. I would go the 15-22 route for the time being. Time is on your side and the 15-22 is waay to much fun, a good little hunting gun and affordable to operate on a regular basis. I have one and highly recommend it. I have the basic Sprt model which came with a set of MBUS sights. Have a red dot on now but it's not a necessity at all. If you go that route, I'd also get a couple of extra factory magazines. Good sales are going now and through the holidays. Here's a few prices and there's others out there not on this list. https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_search/022188868203

    Damn. So I take it you didn't test it prior to install.

    Buttstock Question

    Aside from military vs civilian and plate options, is there a difference between the A1 stock and SP1 stock? Length? Looking at a SP-1 Type E pre-ban.Thanks.
