Is this going to be a 300 Blackout? Or are you talking about something else?

Looks like a good start. I know you were batting the idea around in the other thread, but I lost track of any final decisions.

Are you going to suppress it? What length barrel are you going with? Are you reloading for it?

Looking forward to the build, please keep the pictures and updates coming!!

Nice! I have been thinking real hard about building a blackout upper for mine. It is a .556. I will be following this build. Please share in detail as you go.

Thanks

I bought a stripped lower last week with the intent of building a 300 Blk. I want to suppress it plus I want a QD can so I'm deciding of I want to order the can first then save for the build while I wait for the stamp.
I'm a little irritated because the class 3 dealer had an AAC 762 SDN-6 for $850 when I went in to buy a Sparrow SS. I went back a week later with my form 4 for the Sparrow and the 762 was gone. They said they could order another one but quoted me $1050 (MSRP) and said the previous price was based on a deal they got from their distributor. Grr.
Building an AR seems daunting with all of the choices!

That is a great looking lower. I plan on building a upper to my AR in 300blk. That way I will just swap uppers. But I think my wife want me to build her one next.
