Hey Sgt. Am I correct in assuming you are building a SPR/DMR ype build?

If you planning on using it for a more precision oriented useage consider a 1/8 twist stainless or melonited barrel. 16 is just fine for 300 yards. If you plan on going out to 400+ id look into longer barrels.

Also do yourself a favor and get a regular carbine buffer and a h buffer also. H2 might induce short cycling.

If your planning on a 13" handguard I do think the magwel grip is a little redundant and just added dead weight. Personal opinion.

Agent Tikki,

I'm still going back and forth, most likely a SPR, but wanted a little distance. I already got the carbine tube and have all 3 buffers on hand. I got the mag grip for s**ts and giggles. I originally wanted a 18" barrel. Still debating that. Thanks for the advice, appreciate everyone's input, I want to get this right with out buying stuff to replace my mistakes.
