Guess I'll be running the lathe a night or two while I'm off. Need to order a 1/2-36 bottoming and starting dies before I get home.
if you can't find what you want, there's always modifying a part is my motto!

Probably the way I will go. I really like the levang linear comp I've got on my 223 varmit rifle. I'll probably just order one in 5/8-24 and make a sleeve adapter to fit it to my barrels 1/2-36 threads. Now I know why the barrel was such a good deal....

Ok 90% done on the upper. Still waiting on the compensator. I did finish assembling the long backburnered 223 Moe carbine and ran 60 rds through it. Pretty smooth for a carbine length gas system. I will probably try an h2 buffer before I take it back down for paint.

Sorry no pics, cam-phone ate them.

Update on UTG handguard. Looks great, fit requires dremel work to fit my billet upper. Nothing major just a!

Update on UTG handguard. Looks great, fit requires dremel work to fit my billet upper. Nothing major just an 1/32" on two spots. Would probably fit milspec upper without any work. Nice barrel nut mounting system, no need to time it to get the gas tube to fit. Comes with its own barrel nut wrench, nice touch for $100 handguard. VERY solid once its screwed in place. Two thumbs up.

Ok guys next question. I was going to use a magpul Moe fixed rifle stock with the longer barrel. Just doesn't look right on a carbine barrel. Has anyone used the acs-l carbine stock? Does it lock up solid on the tube, or does it wobble like the car stocks? Or should I just pony up the cash and buy the ubr or prs stock? I know they are heavier, not a problem, helps with 6.8 recoil.

Need something solid as this is going to be my goto rifle for hog and deer, and I hate the stock wobble with optics!

Update, emailed Jerry at Witt machine. They can custom thread one of their companies compensators in 1/2-36. Will put in an order in a few days. Nice people, fast response.

i have seen the Witt Machine compensators, pricey but they look very well made.

glad to hear you got the compensator issue worked out.

Most of the magpul stocks with the locking feature are pretty solid, but on occasion they have a small amount of play. If it's absolutely necessary it doesn't move, then get something fixed or with a different locking mechanism.

Well That probably settles it ACS-L it is. Now I just wait for PSA to run another sale on that build kit.
