This is what you are seeking. I urge you to consider this and order it with the gas block and gas tube. You will not regret it one bit. These barrels are super accurate. I will attest to that. I would also recommend using the BCM A5 Intermediate Buffer System with it if you are planning on using a carbine stock. This combination is super smooth.

So it only took about 2-1/2 years for me to get to actually doing this. Though I did buy an AK and a Vz.58 during that time. Can anyone confirm for me whether it’s a commercial or milspec but stock which fits over the BMC buffer tube?

It is mil-spec tube dimensions according to their  info

Cool. I didn’t see that in the page for the complete kit. Kinda pisses me off…I bought it two years ago, but ended up selling it off before I could use it. Made way too many sacrifices for a now ex- who only kept demanding more than what ever should have been given. So now that I’ve taken out the trash, I’m getting back to the things I want.

Fortunately, I never put a ring on it, so I didn’t have to deal with the divorce process. 
 

Kinda pissed. I had to order the buffer again. I went on vacation for two weeks back to North Carolina and put in a mail hold request. They never held my mail, and it showed the buffer as being delivered on the 1st. I got back on the 6th and of course it was nowhere to be found. One of my coworkers let me have it shipped to his place this time, which is out in the country.

Update: the order from BCM has shipped; the order from LaRue is on back order. 
 

I was looking at one of the BCM free float fore ends, but the one I was interested in uses M-Lock, which I’ve never used… last AR I built used a quad rail. But I like how bare the M-Lock one is, because the quad rail was a bit much. I don’t plan on adding a bunch of shat. I have an AimPoint CompM4 I may or may not mount, I’ll get BUIS for sure, and I want a Magpul AFG for it.

Hey, let’s revisit this one. Woke up (around noon, because I get from work at 3 a.m.) a couple days ago to a missed call and voicemail from a Texas phone number. It was LaRue. When I placed the order, I set it to have it billed to my Venmo card (I use Venmo like a piggy bank). I’d forgotten about the LaRue order and used the money I had on Venmo on various things (but not crack). So I used my regular debit card and had them bill it to that, and it got shipped. 18” barrel + gas system + gas block + trigger group. Probably gonna be a minute before the build gets done. At the moment, we’re doing one day of mandatory overtime at my regular job, and I got back into driving tow trucks (albeit smaller ones than I’d operated previously) because three days off a week + all of my friends being married left me with nothing better to do during the pandemic, plus I’m too stubborn to admit I need time off every now and again, so it’s been seven day work weeks.

What's to re-visit? Just smile when it shows up. :segrin:

 

I'm looking forward to following this too., hopefully with lots of gun porn.

I go on the Larue site a lot, an wear a bib for the drool.

Hate to leave everyone hanging, but I’ve l kinda been slacking. Still haven’t gotten a matching lower for the FDE upper I bought for this build. Guy who retired from my work some time ago owns some property out towards FairPlay, so a bunch of us plus a former neighbor of mine went out there. Among other things, I brought my M&P lower + POF GPU AR out. I just slapped a set of irons which had originally been on an M&P-15/22 on there, and they worked, but I didn’t like how high they set, so the next order of business is a set of low profile sights for that. I saw Larue had the HK ones for some $200 and change. 
 

Also, I bought an unissued condition VKT M39 Mosin on a hex receiver back in 2009. It say in NC for the first ten years I lived in CO, so last Saturday was the first time I actually fired that one. He had targets set up out to 500 yards, which is great because I don’t buy rifles for 50 yard targets. Anyhow, is there a photo hosting service which won’t freak out over guns?

I did not run an adjustable GB on my 18" LaRue Tactical Stealth barrel and it performed very well with absolutely very little recoil. I had it mated to a lower with the BCM A5 intermediate buffer system and running a LANTAC E-BCG.

Another vote for LaRue.
