OD Green
Going against my usual and doing something totally different . Every one of my black rifles are well, black . Going to build a 5.45x39 rifle. I found cases of 2160 rd for $375 locally and im thinking I can build this for about $450 with all the crazy deals going on and my dealer has a box full of 5.45 barrels in the white that got mis-shipped so he got them really cheap.

Can you build a 5.45 on a 5.56 lower?

What're you kidding? I read the above as "complete gun & 2160 rounds of ammo for $825." IMHO, OD would have to be right after matte black, along with FDE.

How about a parts list, with suppliers, when you get to it?

Yes , my dealer has a complete spikes in 5.45 sitting on the shelf , nothing special about it , its sitting on a standard spikes lower, I believe I will have to use standard GI mags though

Wow, $90 for a barrel?


Will standard mags work for that round? Thought you had to use 5.45 specific mags which are expensive and hard to find......

If i had access to those prices on the barrel and ammo, i'd be all over it.....

AgentTikki 12-12-2013 09:01 PM

Also how are you getting a bolt turned? You doing the work yourself?

I believe I can use GI mags and those will work from what I have read , P mags are out , not enough length for the round . The bolt we will be taking just a hair out of to make work . Keep up on this thread .. Heres a tad more porn for ya Tikki

Little extra pron that showed up today . ;)
