    Crime and punishment

    Be nice if we all lived in Candyland and could simply 'walk' to fix a simple mistake, but our government sits here with us on Terra Firma, where one strike and you're OUT, of luck that is when your life is threatened, so you get to die because of a mistake, seems the gov't is favoring the criminals now. Of course crime flourishes, so do all the uniforms in proximity to them. Gov't doesn't give a shat unless they can make a profit, and a murder trial draws much more capital than a self-defense trial, silly me...

    Ya, the path that only the wealthy and connected can walk. Your average citizen does not have the means of restoring his rights, be real. Have you looked in to that 'Path' at all in reality?

    Crime and punishment

    Ok, how about if an 18yr old doing what most 18yr old's do, gets caught up making a stupid mistake, which I'm sure we've all done in some form or another, and is now charged with a felony drug possession charge on his record for stupid shat he did when he was still a child, basically. Now he's grown up and moved on in life, is oh, 30-something now with a growing family, but wait, he can't have a firearm to protect himself and his family, for an action he grew out of before he even knew what he was doing. Now he has to be defenseless in this crazy-ass 'Active Shooter' society and be preyed on by criminals who don't care what law says what? bullshat I say... One size fits all punishments are crap, and telling someone who's only real crime was curiosity that he can't defend his family from the intruders who can easily kill him and his family with firearms they likely aren't supposed to possess either. Taking away rights shouldn't happen, except on individual judgments. I love this country with all that I am, but our judicial system is sad and outdated, like the politicians that run it. There's my 2 cents, let the firestorm commence...

    Im screwed

    I feel your pain more than I care to share, just know that you're still sitting slightly cozier than I, at least your crap-fest has a light at the end if the tunnel. I've yet to find any way out of my 'hole', in fact, I'd probably fit in my figurative hole physically, too bad IDK where it's at, that'd be the life after death problem solved at least. Just laugh, being all bummed and down doesn't help at all, and it'll make you feel better, especially when you overcome the BS that is LIFE!!!

    first build, this is what i came up with

    Ya, ordered 2 MBT-2S about a week ago, its anyones guess when they'll arrive, but they've yet to even have a home, but I'm sure they'll come in to their own over time, like the SPR I'm barely starting thats currently a stripped upper, charging handle, BCG, and SOLGW 16.45in M-LOK handguard, LoL. Anyways... Trashcan, what websites have you been looking at for prices, if you don't mind me asking? I, and others as well, could probably recommend a few sites that will likely save you some $$. Funds may not be an issue, but if you spend less on a handguard, thats more $ for a barrel, for example.

    The upper itself doesn't matter a whole lot, as long as its made from 7075-T6 and it has M4 feed ramps, you're G2G. Unless you want a spider logo, Spikes, or are particular about the T-Marks on the top-rail being there, or even whitened, any mil-spec upper will due ya. Hell, you don't even need the forward assist, although good to have, I guess. I like my flatside upper, personally. To each their own though, what I like or works for me, may not for you. Same goes for everything else out there, we're all different, stuff like T-Marks I couldn't care less about, some wouldn't have an AR without it.

    Thats freaking hilarious, LMAO. Wonder if was a joke or he's for real? If it's for real, I either doubt he's married, or has 2 diswashers. I mean I technically do the same, except my 'dishwasher' is my 2 hands, dishwasher is a luxury, I'd rather build another upper, I'm no stranger to manual labor, LoL

    I seen that as well, but haven't read the Oak Ridge testings yet. But all that is lab-setting I believe, we live in the real world, where shat happens and who-knows WTF could happen. That's why I'll stick with my Magpul K2+ grip with the lube bottle core. Hell, Anderson could be right, IDK, everything I've learned up to this point says to 'oil your gun', and that hasn't done me wrong, and I see no reason to change that. Nor do I want to spend an exponential amount of extra $$ on something I'd likely oil anyways? I'd LOVE to hear from someone with experience with Anderson's RF85 to laugh at me and say 'oil is out', but until then, just about every forum I've read/been involved in, everyone will tell you not to run your gun dry.

    I firmly agree on building it yourself part. Of course, when all is put together correctly and you have cycling issues or something, the man in the mirror is your customer service dept. I also am skeptical about Anderson's RF85 coating. Regardless, I still oil my DLC BCG, and my WMD NiB-X BCG, so there's no 'miracle coating' that mitigates friction, keep that in mind too. Adams Arms has a carrier with and integrated gas key, I have the reduced weight one, which means no worrying about your gas key coming loose ever, and easier to clean as well, love them as well. Check out this trigger as well. I've only recently ordered 2, have yet to use it myself, but I've read a couple hundred great reviews on many sites, even talked to people who stand by it, and at less than half the cost of Geiselle, or most any aftermarket trigger, it couldn't hurt to try. https://www.larue.com/products/larue-tactical-mbt-2s-trigger/

    Very true, but read all you can, I've read countless articles on PewPew and like sites and still do. General rule of thumb is stick with the well-known manufacturers, BCM being one of the best, and you generally can't go wrong. Heck, Anderson has done as well as any other brand IMO, and they're considered standard or basic. Main reason I mentioned CrypticCoatings is their ease of cleaning, its wipe, wipe, DONE. No solvents, no tools, no scrubbing, just SWEET BCG's. Some say they even cycle smoother, but I've yet to invest in a JP Silent Capture Spring to really notice the difference between carriers, I hate spending forever cleaning, due to shooting frequently and having multiple guns to clean, haven't even had to SCRAPE the carbon off the bolt tail yet, after roughly 1k rounds, but with regular cleaning. What REALLY is gonna kill the budget is your optic, they go well past $1,000 pretty easily, while that isn't necessary for a good, quality optic. Even Magpul BUIS are almost $100, unless ypu catch them on PSA for $49.99, if so, order 3 pair or more because they'll be of use. But just so we understand correctly, this will be mainly a range toy, so to speak?

    Amen, I was the same way, fair warning, its addicting, like LEGOs for grown-ups, LoL. But the 6.5 Creedmoor, is what I'm guessing you're referring to, will be on an AR10 platform, while the Grendel will work on an AR15. For longer ranges, you'll definitely want a decent 2-stage trigger, IDK if the Timney you mentioned was 1 or 2 stage. May also consider a ambidextrous charging handle, you won't regret it. As for BCG, 8620 carrier is the normal, and mil-spec I believe, the bolt though look for C-158 or 9310. The coating is what its all about though, IMO, after the materials mentioned are there. Personal opinion, a DLC is the way to go, check out www.CrypticCoatings.com, expensive, yes, but again, IMO, worth every penny. And for your barrel, check out Ballistic Advantage barrels, not much more usually, if purchased from the right place, and come with a sub-MOA guarantee. Sorry, have a habit of skimmimg, my apologies, should've just asked if I'm sure I can read...

    Not a bad idea. You say this will be your first build? Do you have any previous AR15, or any firearm experience? Doesn't matter too much, just try to get an idea of all the different parts out there before you start, and it helps knowing what you want too. It'll save you $$ in the end, which can be used on another build, LoL. Also, you building to build, or will this AR have a specific purpose? I.E. Home defense, hunting, 3-gun tournaments

    If you know you're going to upgrade, start from scratch, otherwise you'll spend more $$ in the end, depending on upgrades desired and which complete upper you go with. You'll also start compiling undesired parts, which is ok in the beginning, but gets OUT OF HAND...

    The M4E1 may not be compatible with that handguard, may want to consider a mil-spec style upper, unless you find an Aero handguard, then you'd be on easy-street. Also, have you considered other BCG's besides the PSA one?

    Black Friday deals

    Hope you're sitting down, $89.99!!! Glad I finally made the call to order it before they went OOS. I forced myself to on that one though, I've got stonewalled like 4 times by waiting for the prices to drop more or something, IDK, and they sold out by the time I'd get back to whatever it was on regardless of what site. Good luck on Black Friday everyone, be careful, and if you see an awesome price on something you've been wanting, BUY IT OR YOU'LL LIKELY REGRET YOU DIDN'T. Also, let's not forget about "Cyber Monday", and a lot of these sales last the week, but other's are very time restricted, stock is usually the first to end. BTW, I don't need one either, but $44.99 shipped for a BCG, can't pass up that!!! Anyone found any good sales on lowers? Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
