    Page one... That was such a long time ago. I thought you werent happy with the fit and finish on them and was considering an alternative. Ya gotta admit this build is like an on going saga, in a good way... With so many twists and turns its a real nail biter.

    There definitely are some tooling lines visible through the cerakote. However, I actually kinda dig the aesthetic along with the slightly charcoal color and think it’ll pair awesome with the engravings and give it a real neo-industrial vibe.

    Also, build wise it still gives me exactly what I want. Lightening features, no ambi, and true free float barrel.

    Putting a heavier buffer alone does nothing to address the issue at hand; it just helps mitigate the negative side effects of said over-gas by reducing dwell time and, especially on a duty weapon thatís fouled up after a high round count firing schedule, having the heavier reciprocating mass ensures ejection and bolt closure. I didnít say that heavier buffers didnít have a purpose, I just said they donít address the issue of gas like an AGB does.

    I understand most people (myself included) with duty rifles donít have the ability to change out the gas block (since itís an issued weapon versus personally owned) so swapping out the buffer is an easy and allowable/undetectable option.

    If itís a personal rifle and not used ďon the jobĒ, fine tuning it with an AGB in no way decreases durability/reliability. Also, Iíve never swapped my buffers for lighter ones to reduce recoil like a lot of people do when running AGBs, in fact I generally use an H1 buffer with a Geissele braided spring but I donít go heavier than that and havenít needed to

    So here’s another question. Is there any real reason to use or consider a visible laser? I’ve never been able to think of one save for possibly training, or bedside usage for people who need corrective lenses.

    Fort Tom started a thread about lasers not long ago. Lots of information there.

    Yeah I followed that. All I really got from it was depends on environmental’s, may be complimentary to other sighting systems. More at home on rifles.

    Guess what I’m looking for is if there’s a good reason TO or NOT TO use one.

    Main sighting system is going to be a Kahles 1-8x

    That other thread was for pistol, wasn't it? And now we're talking carbine? I don't run lasers at all, except mounted to the heads of sharks in my evil lair, but isn't the main use of laser on carbines for IR and night vision? Otherwise, the only other reasons I'd consider a laser are psychological (no one likes a laser dot illuminating their sternum) or if I thought I'd have to be shooting but couldn't be "behind the gun", which isn't a scenario I actually plan for.

    Well, I settled on and purchased a barrel. 5-7 weeks out supposedly.

    Black River Tactical CHF 12.5” with their EXC gas system.

    Should be pretty sweet.

    Nice

    That’s not too bad of a wait.

    All parts are finally in hand, save for the suppressor. All thatís left now is to send the barrel for cerakote and for the stamp to clear.

    Sizing the artwork took a painful amount of attempts, but looks sick!

    I like it! Is that a cartoon girl or anime or something? Or just some random broad?

    You’re not far off actually. It’s based off Angel from the Borderlands series of games. Thought her character was a good match for the neo-industrial look of the receives. That’s also why the upper got a wing.

    Ah yes Borderlands! Been a while but I see the resemblance. Nice work.

    Looks fantastic, Aragorn!!! I've done 2 builds with laser work (not nearly as artistic and refined as yours) and I've been really pleased with the outcome. Your build inspires me to get going on some projects I have planned. Good stuff!
