I've finally decided that I'm going to pull the trigger and build an AR-15 (of sorts; SCR Lower). I've set aside money for the lower, just waiting on Brownells or Budsgunshop to have them instock again. In the mean time I'm going to build up the upper, 100% from scratch (well from parts because I'm not a machinist).

Why not just buy an upper? I actually want to really learn something out of this.

Why an SCR lower? I broke my hand long before joining the Marine Corps. Being young and dumb and not wating to miss work I would duck tape my hand into a ball for work (pulling rocks out of the blueberry barrens) and then tape my fingers and hand out on make shift splints after work. Suffice to say it never healed right and now shooting a true pistol grip actually kind of hurts. Straightish stocks work much better for me.

Has anyone here assembled their own upper?
Any good guides to read?
Manufactures to avoid? (obviously avoid poverty pony stuff)
Manufactures you like?

Over all I'm going for an upper that looks somewhat milspec, sans the forward assist (SCR bolt can't utilize one) and carry handle. Almost mini-14ish in overall asthetics.

Pic semi-related. I'm thinking of a wood buttstock because #woodissexyasfuck

Well the thing about 6.5 is the ammo cost...

personally i never found brownells to be a particularly good place to shop for AR parts for cheap. i guess it's because i've always found better deals elsewhere, but it's nice to get all of your shit from one place.

patrician choice.

>1x Brownells 20" 6.5 Grendel SS barrel 1in8 w/bolt
>I decided I'm going the 6.5 Grendel route last second. I've been doing a lot of reading and for my needs (plinking -> hunting) it seems like the better choice.
i'd have personally started with a 5.56 but i was tossing around the idea of building a 12.5" 6.5 grendel pistol to hunt with myself. at least there are cheap steel-cased offerings out there to plink with, i have no qualms about shooting tulammo/wolf crap through any of my guns.

i don't know if there was an option for this at brownells either, but i'd assume they are at least on top of their game and offer the 6.5 grendel stuff with the type 2 chamber if you enjoy having fingers and a face.

I'd still want to see tests. Buy one, put it in a backpack and fill the backpack with sand. Then shoot it with a powerful handgun and see how it performs. Also, it won't stop rifle rounds, which you will need a ceramic or steel plate for.

At a minimum, tell your kid to turn the backpack to the front during a shooting. Textbooks will do a lot to slow/stop bullets. From experience, 2 inches of phone book will stop a .22lr round. Obviously something like a .50AE will still be lethal, see the woman who got charged with manslaughter for killing her boyfriend after he asked her to shoot him in the chest with a Desert Eagle (while holding a book).

I'm not sure if "Ballistic Level IIIA Lab Tested" actually means anything. Since these are probably meant to be sold off to scared mothers, I'm guessing they used as little kevlar as possible to theoretically get to IIIA level and then skipped on the expensive process of actually getting anything NIJ certified.

They could still work but I'd want to see results for myself.

If it were me doing a big bore rolling block, I'd be tempted by building a 10 or 12ga mag/supermag with slugs.

Comparatively much lower pressure and you've still got a big bang with a monster piece of lead going down range. Would be handy for stopping a charging waterbuffalo too.

That´s a rifle round though, no? Smooth-bores are interesting in that, as the guy said, they don´t swage the bullet and don´t heat up as much and the length of the bullet not being an issue since you don´t have to figure out the twist rate. You can theoretically go crazy with hard exotic alloys since you don´t have to machine the rifling.


No. 108081 ID: b27d97 hide watch quickreply [Reply]
  Why have rifling in pistols, that are designed specifically for civilian edc and self-defense? Wouldn't smoothbores be a better solution since the range at which such pistols are used is minimal and you'd get the benefit of slightly higher muzzle velocity out of the same barrel length.
>> No. 108084 ID: f2172d
In the US, non-blackpowder smoothbore pistols are typically classified as a 'Any Other Weapon', subject to the rules of the National Firearms Act. Mostly has to do with the ATF considering them as short-barreled shotguns.

Google New England Firearms Handi-Gun, for reference.

> Wouldn't smoothbores be a better solution

No. Tanks use smoothbore guns to accommodate the fin stabilized discarding sabot rounds. Rifling works really well to stabilize standard projectiles. I can't recall the name, but there was that company that put out smoothbore ARs with little nerf football shaped bullets.

> since the range at which such pistols are used is minimal

Accuracy is important. In a civilian defensive scenario, the saying goes that "There's a lawsuit attached to every stray round." Also, you don't always get to choose your engagement distance. Think about the police officers responding to the North Hollywood shootout.

> and you'd get the benefit of slightly higher muzzle velocity out of the same barrel length.

Pistols really don't have enough velocity to matter. You're throwing a chunk of lead that will impact a target and make a 9-12 mm hole in meat, probably break bones, and penetrate some light barriers. Really unless you hit something important like the heart, central nervous system, or some big arteries, it may not stop an attacker.

>Welcome to Fort Drum
>Biggest hobby is guns

So I'm having to leave 3 AR-15's, all my handguns, undoubtedly my suppressor and all my mags back in Montana.

What the hell should I should do for weapons? I don't really want one of those durped out NY legal AR's unless there's no better option. Saw my first one at a Gander and could only say "what the.....fuuuuuck" Other than a stupid Mini 14, is there some "okay" option I'm missing for a 5.56?

Should I focus on a precision rifle instead?

I"ve got an Ithaca 37 (20 inch) and Mossberg 500 (20 inch), so I'm good for shotguns. Just need a rifle for home defense and parties.

  Trump banned bump stocks by executive order on Dec 18, 2018. “A 90 period now begins which persons in possession of bump stock type devices must turn those devices to an ATF field office, or destroy them by March 21.”
Now, if you're not familiar with what a bump stock is, here is the description of these things from the 157 page finalized rule from the US Department of Justice: "These devices convert and otherwise semiautomatic firearm into a machine gun by functioning as a self acting or self regulating mechanism that harnesses the recoil energy of the semiautomatic firearm in a manner that allows the trigger to reset and continue firing without additional physical manipulation by the trigger or of the trigger by the shooter."
https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/13635046/Bump-Stock-Final-Rule.0.pdf

It is impossible to know just how many bump stocks Americans own because the devices aren’t traceable, but ATF has estimated that between 280,000 and about 520,000 have been sold since 2010. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump was “once again fulfilling a promise he made to the American people.” Trump had promised the ban in March, saying the devices “turn legal weapons into illegal machines.” https://www.apnews.com/6c1af80fb290472c89fb930e223505af

Just bought the wife a Glock 42 for Christmas.

As with all Glocks, trigger sucks both in terms of performance and feel.

Found The Glock Store - are they the right guys from whom to buy the trigger upgrades? Are there better alternatives?
