I bought a YHM striped lower and parts kit from my local gun store. I found my dsc upper from a gun show a few weeks ago and the bcg from rra. The stock and buffer tube I got from Del-ton.

Thanks, I was hoping I could go do some shooting today but the rain put a stop to that. Hopefully next weekend. We all need to plan a shooting trip some time.

Just got the green pulsing laser on and it is bright as sh!t at night. Puts out one of the solid green beams. Gotta get it zeroed in with the EO sights etc...

God bless Texas!

I didnt see your governor using a tool to drop his mags in all those shoot'em up movies that he made...

either way - nice build. The EO magnifier is nice, it flips out of the way for CQB.

Here are my 3 favorite ARs.Nice. What would recommend for a 5.56 suppressor? I've been toying with idea, but keep hearing mixed reviews at what is good and what isn't.

Thanks,

Nice. What would recommend for a 5.56 suppressor? I've been toying with idea, but keep hearing mixed reviews at what is good and what isn't.

Thanks,

I'd look at the new SpecWar from SWR, which isn't out yet, or one of the OPS.
AAC makes some great suppressors, as does Gemtech.
Heard a YHM suppressor the other day on a 16" Ar, and it was great also.

Specifically what are you going to use it on?

If you haven't heard a 5.56 suppressor, you should, mostly you don't need earmuffs, but they are still rather loud, think 22LR with a supersonic crack.
Also, some use flash suppressors for mounting and some use brakes.
I'm partial to the OPS cause they use both threads on the brake and a collar for mounting, and there is very little shift in POI on any of the three uppers I have st up for them.
My SpecWar is a big older suppressor, but it's very quiet and I also use it on this rifle (my fourth favorite!) as well as the 10.5" MRP.

This 14.5" is a fluted midlength which is light weight, but retains good accuracy and has no POI shift when it warms up. Also, the midlength gas system seems perfectly timed to the suppressor, as it's significantly quieter than my 14.5" carbine gas sytems when using the suppressor.

The truth is there ain't many bad suppressors out there, but you get what you pay for.

Specifically what are you going to use it on?Most probably a 16" AR, although I may do the paperwork for a SBR at the same time, and go for around 10 or 12".

Phil, if you look at the photo of the 16" AR of mine above that's a OPS 12th mounted on it. It is very quiet, and the suppressor reduces group size by as much as 50% at longer ranges, it can be hard to tell at 100 yards sometimes.
The OPS 12th (also mounted on the SPR 18") is probably the state of the art in suppressor performance. Also you get very little blow back with it.
You can buy smaller suppressors, but not really any shorter 'cause the OPS telescopes back over the barrel, haven't heard a quieter suppressor yet than the 12th. Plus it' very durable, at least one example (in the military) has over 100,000 rounds through it. The secret is the brake which the OPS use, it acts as the first blast baffle.

The 12th would be my first choice, although due to the mounting system it isn't really suitable on below 12.5" SBRs.
However, if I was going to build another SBR, I'd look to use a 12.5" barrel and either the OPS 12th or probably the 15th (a little shorter and slightly louder) if it was to be shot suppressed almost exclusively.
Once you start shooting suppressed, you will not want to go back!

Now the SPR 18" with the OPS is as quiet as a 5.56 is going to get with full power ammo. It's a pleasure to shoot, awesome accuracy (.4 MOA at 500 yards once! Really), and as close to the real thing as you can get.

The 16" is my favorite rifle, some criticize it's 3.5 mag ACOG, it's a TA11C, which has a BDC reticle almost perfectly matched to the 77gr MK262 ammo fired through the Kreiger barrel.
My answer to the complaints about the 3.5X mag is below, never leave home without the Geovid 10X42 laser rangefinding binoculars.
Use them to ID and range your target, then put the appropriate cross on the reticle on the target and squeeze the trigger.

Thanks again for the info, most appreciated!
