So BCM for the win
Message permalink: 721944972407996456
Yeah, BCM has great QC
Message permalink: 721945010509185057
BCM is always a good choice.
Message permalink: 721945041916133417
I just don't like that they're still stuck back in the keymod age, at least they're offering MLOK versions finally.
Message permalink: 721945145100075078
Meaning, you can get a functional PSA that works fine... but are you willing to take a chance on QC when it comes to protecting your life?
Message permalink: 721945657723846727
Also, Confused, that's the Alt-C qual. Of course you can do that with an MP5, lol.
Message permalink: 721945897143107695
I don't have an issue playing with PSA, I have a PSA lower for my pistols. Cause why not.
Message permalink: 721945993708568659
If shit hits the fan for real and I'm taking one my lowers, I'm taking my Aero.

*Laughs in Anderson lower with $1k worth of BCM parts on it*
Message permalink: 721946295245209696
Lmao, same. Even though my lower is a PSA, it's got decent things in them.
Message permalink: 721946422244802571
Milspec trigger, but polished real nice.
Message permalink: 721946465102200843
Hell, I've considered covering up the PSA logo, just to avoid asking about the lower, lmao

Message permalink: 721946948856184954
See, lowers are just blocks of aluminum with holes milled in, as long as hole is right size, no problem
Message permalink: 721947099285028945
Yeah, exactly. That's what I say... honestly, a lower is a lower and milspec is all you need.

They were called sleepers in the car community long before PC gaming existed
Message permalink: 721947243245994015
Uppers are where the money needs to be focused.
Message permalink: 721947259817820180
Yeah, you had your shitbox sleepers.
Message permalink: 721947346518147113
An old rusty looking shitbox with really hot insides

I'd don't have one myself but I helped turn a Ford Transit van into a monster once

Now, about putting 900 of your 1.4k build into the upper

Hell, that's prety much what I did.
Message permalink: 721948019989282826
The handguard alone was like 250
Message permalink: 721948044324503582
Another 200 for the barrel.

Yeah, jap cars are neat.

I'm kinda disappointed that my glass choices are shit since I am married to the ACSS Hud DMR reticle for my 20 inch dmr build
Message permalink: 721948402824249354
Hahaha, I went with a 1-6 strike eagle on my 20"
Message permalink: 721948560915955722
Though, that Primary Arms ACSS was tempting.
Message permalink: 721948615911800932
The acss is fantastic but fuck do they not have many good scopes with it
Message permalink: 721948733411033148
Message permalink: 721948929696202802
That's the reticle on mine.
Message permalink: 721948951808311386
I'm using the Primary Arms as a stop gap place holder till I can get a NightForce or something of similar quality
Message permalink: 721949078845521950
Primary Arms is still decent glass man, I've seen people use it past 500 meters with it
Message permalink: 721949206092447776
And it's a decent choice accord to Garand Daddy
Message permalink: 721949267484213258
Just don't expect it to take a Trijicon beating.
Message permalink: 721949315626434592
Oh yeah, I like the Magpul K grip honestly. It's comfy to me. I don't really care for the HK battle grips, I don't like the way the palm swells and neck cranes.
Message permalink: 721949463416930374
Yeah, that's part of my reasoning, it's not going to be permenant but it'll be there till I can go to something really nice, probably about the same time I have to do a barrel swap for the first time
Message permalink: 721949513715024002
I also think the BCM Mod 1s are nice, I prefer them over the Mod 0s
Message permalink: 721949857773781012
mod 3 my guy

@Sparrow is your Strike Eagle the Gen 1?
Message permalink: 721950645074264164
Because this is the reticle on my 1-6 Assault Pigeon
Message permalink: 721950870773694587
No, I have the less ugly one.
Message permalink: 721951195597373531
Message permalink: 721951436384108555
Looks like that.
Message permalink: 721951447759192115
Hmmmm from what I've heard the Gen 2 solved a lot of the Gen 1 problems, including the horrible reticle
Message permalink: 721951689074016318
I don't have any problems with mine.
Message permalink: 721951805541711912
Holds zero, hits what I aim at and if I want to light it up, I can.
Message permalink: 721951900123004950
It's a first focal plane, generally I prefer second, but on a 1-6 like this, I don't mind it.
Message permalink: 721952008013348924
Meh, my only requirments for a scope are First focal plane Have reticle
Message permalink: 721954116728914010
Get a good one or don't get one
Message permalink: 721960901506236476
From the question earlier, FCD is more expensive than other quality parts because the designer uses his experience to design and develop improved versions of parts where he's seen them fail over the years, or believe they could use improvement. One example is machining a mark in the cam pin so you can put it back the same way every time and reduce bolt carrier wear as putting it back in random directions wallows out the hole unevenly over time.
Message permalink: 722064470301474826
Also a lot of their parts are billet cut, which is more expensive to do but you can get very exact tolerances
Message permalink: 722066965258043425
Are you buying any particular LPK for the non-FCD parts?
Message permalink: 722067482491355176
I picked out specific lower parts but last time I got a geissele kit
Message permalink: 722067761496588318
For a first gun I'd probably suggest stuff like bcm or geissele. You'll develop preferences later on
Message permalink: 722068808721891388
I did do bcm
Message permalink: 722069875253837824
And i threw it on an anderson lower
Message permalink: 722069929326674060
Its not my first tho and i have a aero lower comming to either replace my current lower or build into a rifle

I like what FCD does with upgrading/modifying parts to make them more functional but I can't justify that price right off, although after the 1st barrel is shot out I'm gonna do a full tear down and inspect every part and replace anything and everything I'm having issues with
Message permalink: 722105469585457212
Just ordered a 5/32 center punch and some rocksett. Determined to do everything perfectly on this build.
Message permalink: 722117463910776874
@Confused is this build basically your "the best money can buy" setup?
Message permalink: 722118193220550696
Sorta. I mean you can always figure out how to spend more money but it's a Gucci build, yeah
Message permalink: 722118804964114562
I'm poor, so I'd rather just have one rifle that's really high end than a collection of cheap guns
Message permalink: 722118941996089395
@Confused I agree 10000% on the one badass gun idea
Message permalink: 722120585613672469
You should also take pictures of your rifle with the serial number clearly shown and document everything about it in case you have to defensively use it. The police will steal it from the evidence room if you don't.
Message permalink: 722122080102907965
That's why you keep a shit box Anderson around and say you shot the dude with it
Message permalink: 722122351654993980
Message permalink: 722122681763365006
It would be a good idea to keep a less expensive but still serviceable gun for home defense, like a bcm with magpul furniture slapped on
Message permalink: 722122897073766421
Well damn. This store's magpul grips are all sold out. 223/556 all sold out too.
Message permalink: 722125083660779531
Window PMAGs all sold out too, but they had lots of ranger plates in stock for the same price as online. Wasn't a wasted trip.
Message permalink: 722129975028744223
I should get more windowed PMAGs, I only have one.

@Sparrow just make sure that's your last mag lol

It is my last mag.

Holy tits. D60 is $123.45
Message permalink: 722137123129655346
Is it just me or does Magpul grossly over price everything other than pistol grips, stocks, and mags, and not just their M-lok components
Message permalink: 722139346878070926
I don't think $18 is unreasonable for their windowed 30 rounders
Message permalink: 722139497588064307
Wait did you have mags listed and I didn't notice it or did you add it?
Message permalink: 722139822277525544
I added it since you pointed it out, but they want 100 bucks for a pretty meh bipod, and 20 for a swing swivel
Message permalink: 722140014158282782
Yeah. I saw a Magpul stock for $255. It better grow arms and legs and watch my six for that price. Edit: I guess they have tons of budget options, I never bothered looking before now.
Message permalink: 722140250687930430
Yeah, that sounds like PRS prices there
Message permalink: 722141238115172375
Bolt action rifle stocks tend to have a lot more going on with them
Message permalink: 722142232450171051
255 is pretty cheap for that
Message permalink: 722142289652219996
Measured out parts and it looks like I'll have an oal of 28"
