Do you like the KAC thumb thing?

GOST do you want to give one a go? I've got a couple and neither are being used atm.

I do. If they were more readily available and a little cheaper, I'd probably have a lot more.

They just got 300 BCG's in, they weren't all marked though. I think they're keeping the marked ones on hand for their full rifle builds and uppers they offer. You'll likely have to call and order them specifically as they may or may not be listed on the site.

300 is the quantity of BCG's they sourced. Some marked with the logo, some not.

I didn't know you could engrave on the inside of the magwell. I did mine on the bottom of the trigger guard. I thought the engraving had to be on the outside somewhere but I guess not. If I get the dough to start building multiple SBR's then I guess I can worry about it then [:D]

Per the NFA Guide, the engraving has to be "visible." I keep saying I'm going to engrave the barrel on my .300BO, but I never get motivated enough to take the rail off and instead just use another, already engraved lower for it.

My first engravings are at the trigger pins because the engraver insisted that I couldn't do magwell. This was from one of the biggest names mentioned for trust engraving.

I found another one with quick turnaround who got official word (if there is such a thing) from the ATF. Magwell lip is fine. That's where the rest of my engravings have been on my billet lowers. I put them at trigger hole on forged lowers.

Funny you mention that.

I didn't really think they existed either. He had been telling me he was sending me a set of push pins for months. I never really paid attention to it because I never saw them. One day they just randomly show up. Maybe they're saving them for complete builds and don't run pins often? I honestly don't know.

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I saw your question ref Rail Scales. I have them on a couple of builds, including this Dahmer Arms build. I personally like them on this particular rifle because they perform perfectly, giving me a great gripping surface on the Bravo KMR handguard. They come in the package with an extremely aggressive texture, to the point that I always hit a new pair with a pass or two of fine (220) sand paper. If I was still on the job as a LEO, wearing gloves - I would leave them alone.

They are very durable, as you would expect G10 to be. I've been criticized for "spending so much" on them, but I believe that their quality and toughness provide the value.

Any pointers for a way to get the port door to close? The little nub that sticks up seems about a mm too high, so that closing puts pressure against it instead of it retracting.

They're probably SMOS uppers with deeper cuts. I do not have this on an SMOS upper receiver. I'm not crazy about modding my receiver just to use a port cover, so if it's not an issue that's been fixed, I'll just go back to using a properly spec'd part. Shame though as I liked the cover.

If you already have the Hanson barrel, I wouldn't stress about swapping it out with a Shilen. They're going to shoot about as well as a Rainier UltraMatch, which if you have the skills may barely shoot better than the Hanson. Is spending more money at this point a good idea for you? I kind of doubt it. If you want the barrel for another build, I'm sure we can get Eric to get us another deal on them.

11 July 2017, 10:57
Just FYI, for those guys that love barrels on Shilen Blanks. Gen 2 UltraMatch Barrels do not use Shilen blanks. Unknown at this time, but just confirmed with them yesterday.

So if you're set on a Shilen Blank, definitely go SMOS or find a Gen 1 RA UM.

It does not close without the assistance of something to push the pin down. It wasn't a hugely expensive thing, but it does piss me off that I got no response, even to vocally confirm that I'm screwed.

So, in my colorful opinion, those guys can GFY themselves. Fledge, shoot me an address. When I eventually tear that gun down to ship to Kris, I'll mail it to you, on my nickel. Saves space in the garbage.

Then again, he's leaving soon.From what I've read of Eric, he seems a stand-up guy. Too bad their "contact us" link goes to a junk folder instead of the only person I've heard of that gets things done. He shouldn't have to take care of a $20 snivel; every swingin' dick at that company should be able to fix something that small. Customer service is how you live or die, and every conversation is an opportunity to gain a faithful customer, as evidenced here, or fail miserably. Too much choice in the market equals zero second chances. Stack up a few of those and you're toast.
