It never gets old building these beauties. I love it and I'm glad I get to make a living doing it.

Same here. I've got my personal varmit rifle that I testbed ideas on. Way too much money($3500+) in it at this point! Makes a nice showpiece for my table at gunshows.

I keep a 1/7 middie SBR carbine with 14.5" and MOE furnature as my "carry" gun. A new16" 6.8 middie built for hog/deer hunting. Plus 2-3 "transitional" pieces. I build for myself then someone makes an offer I can't turn down. And it goes out the door.

Can't argue the ammo price for lighter rounds but most of my customers "require" 1/7 even for 55 and lighter. I've learned not to argue, just give them what they want and take the money. Educating the customer seldom pays the bills...

Oh well I get to play with something new all the time so I can't complain.

What length barrel do you have on the 7.62 x 39? I am trying to decide between a 14.5" pinned or a 16" for the build I've got going with the Diamond Head hand guard.
