I thought geissele had a decent kit without fcg

They do, they have a rock solid kit without a fcg. There's two versions, a normal one and one with a Gucci trigger guard and maritime bolt catch

I put together about a $1100 build not including lower since I already have a built one. But that includes BCM CH, aero 16" 1/7 barrel, BCM upper with parts and forward assist, AIM BCG, and BCM 13" mlok rail. And a few other goodies. Should be a fairly solid battle rifle.

@Soulraiser what is costing you 1100 there? Good optic?

That sounds like a decent build @Soulraiser

MN requires a permit to buy handguns or "scary assault rifles". I'm not complying with that shit. Luckily shotguns only need the regular NICS check. Building a gun isn't regulated here either.

Yep. It's looking like that'll be what I get. I originally wanted to build an 80% Sig P320, but that's a few hundred more.

So if you dont have enough gas going from your gas block it wont eject and cause a malfunction.
Message permalink: 707804408464932874
What happens if you have too much?
Message permalink: 707804446129651742
increased wear, case head separation possibly
Message permalink: 707804497480646696
which is an absolute bitch
Message permalink: 707804539918745600
Message permalink: 707804616221261854
but also more reliable, if you dont overgas it too much

Your extractor probably won’t like it
Message permalink: 707804874993303643
Cam pin definitely won’t
Message permalink: 707804892248539136
So essentially you want just enough gas for ejection and everything else to work properly and no more.
Message permalink: 707804900410654741
Gas rings will wear quicker

a little more than necessary for when its dirty

Over gassing doesn’t increase reliability, you just get increased parts wear and *different* malfunctions
Message permalink: 707808783379857458
Also @squidsoup0 id get a sling

Ive got a steiner battlelight mk4 its just on a different ar right now. Youre definitely right on the sling though lol
Message permalink: 707810454386507828
I made this one from paracord because I only had one sling and like 7 rifles
Message permalink: 707810568098283551
Slightly overgassing allows your rifle to power through some grime, and cycle shitty underpowered ammunition. It's generally better to be slightly overgassed than undergassed, but the best way to do it is get an adjustable gas block and set it correctly.
Message permalink: 707813621865906287
There are little bandaids for over and under gassing, such as buffers and spring changes
Message permalink: 707813767357923419
See, but that’s based on the idea that a rifle can’t just...be correctly gassed.
Message permalink: 707813891379298344
Between an H buffer and an H3 buffer (if you buy both) you can make any weight combination available.
Message permalink: 707813894864896062
> See, but that’s based on the idea that a rifle can’t just...be correctly gassed. @Crye Salesman I’m aware. I simply said it’s a bandaid for a rifle that is not properly gassed.

Yeah that was directed at confused
Message permalink: 707814065832984616
Message permalink: 707814184196374538
I agree with your statements above. Any overgassing is just extra wear and tear on the parts. Over-gassing leads to increased wear on the gas-rings, causing them to have leakage faster, and to be inefficient.
Message permalink: 707814334016913433
Well the point of overgassing a rifle, at least supposedly, is that sometimes it might not get cleaned as often as it should and it's better to let it cycle through grime a bit and let the armourer deal with the parts wear than to have it stop working in the field. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but it makes a bit of sense.
Message permalink: 707814467550969886
The extractor, bolt lugs, cam pin, And gas key all suffer when overgassing.

Even a properly tuned rifle can run through dirt, grime, and the likes.

I have a properly tuned rifle. I don't exactly know about military ones but i haven't heard good things
Message permalink: 707814767158362152
It doesn’t have to be over gassed. I see your point and where you’re coming from, however.
Message permalink: 707814837358428212
Yeah, pretty much the entire AR15 industry outside of like 3 companies could decrease their gas ports by 10-30% and not see a change in reliability
Message permalink: 707814939133476875
Even more than that if they thought out the operating system and actually considered how to make the gas drive have a wider range of pressure and still be functional, which isnt that hard
Message permalink: 707815167458541568
Like the hk 416, and to a lesser extent the mk18, known for being viciously over gassed, supposedly for running through whatever you throw at it. I don't know if this was by the choice of the manufacturer or mandated by the military though.
Message permalink: 707815709023010877
The MK18 is a...interesting discussion. The 416 was designed *because* those overgassed .mil guns where tearing themselves apart every 6 months in some units

@Confused the HK416’s aren’t insanely bad with the vented gas blocks. I ran one with a suppressor for a while. Granted that setup was well over 10lbs how I usually shot it, but the felt recoil was less than my m4
