off of instagram. i bought $100 in tickets for it. What should i build?


a couple of things to take into consideration. I have to pin a muzzle brake since i live in sucky NJ, so i like 14.5"

i already have a noveske gen 2 14.5" and a gen 1 18" (not factory rifle although the 14.5" is a noveske factory upper)

i have a spare 13.5" NSR and a colt "CS" stock. I was thinking of the colt CS stock and trying to get my hands on a noveske gen 3 upper and noveske NQR instead of the NSR.

First off congrats. That's a good deal...

Second this... https://www.rainierarms.com/noveske-gen-iii-ar-15-upper-receiver-stripped?___SID=U

I say you could do one of those 13.7 with a a b.e Meyers mount pinned to make it legal. The rest is whatever you decide lol

Unfortunately my state sucks and a BE Meyers wouldn't work. I know the muzzle device will be the socom surefire brake. That upper will work but I think I might have better luck with a NQR if I get a complete upper.

I never understood using a super long muzzle device pinned to a short barrel. You lose velocity and gain nothing in terms of compactness.

I'd do a 'ghan barrel on a Gen 1 upper. Roll it old school. The Gen 3 has nothing to offer performance-wise. I mis-read, thought you got a Gen 1 lower. By all means match away.

If you lived in a free state, I'd say 10.3" barrel, Colt Govt. upper and DD RIS-II rail for a MK 18-ish clone.

I'm gonna put on my turnout gear, the rabid fanbois are coming...

I vote Afghan 14.5" as well

I've got a 15, 13.5, and a 9.15" NQR all dying for Noveske uppers, but just haven't made it a priority.

What state? If it works in CA I'm sure it will work in most places :) Do they specifically say no flash hiders?

I think the issue is the "evil features" list. CA doesn't really care about most of the evil features, just whether it's a flash hider vs brake if coupled with a non-pistol grip. States like NJ have the limited, set number of evil features, so you can only have one or two. With a detachable magazine, I believe that only leaves the pistol grip. I may be a bit off on NJ law (never cared to learn it), but you get the idea. It's basically more akin to the old AWB then CA's laws, which have a considerable amount of loopholes.

I think this is what I'll do. 13.5" NQR. GEN 3 upper. 14.5" pinned afghan. Will go well with my CHF 14.5"
I vote Afghan 14.5" as well

I would skip the Gen 3 upper and find a Noveske marked MUR.

Any reason why? My first rifle was a MUR. It's definitely nicer than the gen 1 but I don't see a huge functional difference.

If you're going for looks, I'd get a Gen III Upper, the lines match up well.

I was mainly going to go gen 3 upper just for looks. Not that I'd choose looks over a better part.

I hear you, so far all my Gen III stuff so far has been GTG. The VLTOR MUR is the best upper on the market IMHO, but it's overbuilt, and how many times have we seen an actual upper fail?

Im still bouncing around on the NSR vs NQR. If I decide NSR I'll probably use my spare one, get a gen 3 upper, and have the 3 pieces sent out for cerakote. Something similar to the disruptive grey on the Haley strategic jack.

I really like the stamped gen 3 uppers but a VLTOR marked would be cool too

the only thing that pisses me off on Vltor uppers are that they are laser engraved. I hate to cover that up with a create job. I do like my current gen 2 upper though

So I got my stuff back from cerakote. Just need to save up for afghan barrel, BCG, charging handle, and muzzle brake and I have all the parts. 1396

Looks good. What color did you go with on the cerakote?

Well done. You will love the Afghan barrel when you get it.

You getting a mount for a suppressor?

It was coated by blowndeadline. JFE won't do disruptive grey on anything but the BCM/ jack builds but cerakote posted the "formula" online a long time ago so anyone can mix something similar.

I'll have a Surefire socom muzzle brake but no suppressor. Only a warden. Since I live in NJ I am stuck with a pinned muzzle brake no matter what length barrel I choose. I suppose that will be why this is my 3rd 14.5" upper. I am on a trust with my uncle for a socom 762 mini but that lives in Georgia.

Can't have a FH. It would be impossible to find out where the sniper fire was coming from!

Or a bayonet lug. You guys build your SPRs with 10x scopes and a RMR mounted on a 45 degree. I say forget that. I put a flash hider on so you can't see me when I shoot from far, and if anyone gets close they get the bayonet.
