I also bought ZQI 7.62x51 147gr FMJ-BT for $9.97 a 20-rd box.

Good ammo at a great price! Definitely...

I also bought some ZQI 7.62x51 147gr FMJ-BT for $9.97 a 20-rd box.

It fits on the FSB tight then is cinched down with two hex screws. And it is shielded by the barrel from a side blow. I'd say it's a secure as most other light mounts as long as the FSB is pinned...

We really need to know what the black rifle is. If it's a crappy AR then selling it won't hurt so much. But if it's a good one I'd keep it since used ARs are going real cheap, no matter how good they...

My Streamlight TLR-1s weighs about 4 ounces and the BattleComp Mossie Midnight Mount weighs just over an ounce. I'd say they weight less than 5.5 ounces.

Here's a review I did of this elegant...

I agree, PSA is the way to save money if you aren't in a hurry. Actually they've streamlined the order process over the summer. My last upper came in 10 business days which isn't bad for an item on...

True dat. I haven't heard of a Gen 3 PMAG in anything but black. I painted a couple Gen 3s with the Aervoe Coyote paint.

Yeah great minds think alike or at least along parallel lines. A lot of us here have built extremely good ARs! All my lowers get all four Chart X's and the BCM and DD uppers get 16 of 17 X's, losing...

I'm kinda embarrassed by that so today created an Excel spreadsheet with the 2009 Chart data. Only took an hour, most of that formatting cells to add color and justify text. If you want it I could...

I agree. Nothing wrong with a good AR.

I have an AK clone (WASR-10) but only because I bought it 8 years ago when they were $300. Today AKs are 2-3 times as much and no longer bargains while ARs...

Great advice, Overkill. Crossing the line of diminishing returns (or over kill if you will :D) is a mistake too many folks make.

The Colt 6920 is a great milspec AR, Zack, and your Magpul...

I also am not a fan of alphabetizing the chart. Brands should be arranged by performance, like the old chart. I'd use the same specs that previously were rated when it comes to barrel, BCG, sight...

As far as pistons, I don't see how this can work if we open the door to various models. It'll get too confusing. It may not be wise to even add the midlength DI gas length. Even if we stick to...

In case it's helpful I'll drop in some images of Rob Sloyer's 8/20/2009 M4 Comparison Chart:

Actually, if a manufacturer gives proper, detailed and honest specs you could fit their M4gery in the M4 Compatibility Chart. A properly built PSA or Spikes would come in ahead of LMT and run with...

It would be helpful to have an updated chart but very hard to do. It would have to be targeted for just one model from each manufacturer, probably their milspec M4gery. I'd examine Rob Sloyer's old...

Well you've got to decide on 7.62x39 vs. 5.56. If you go with the former I'd get an SKS or AK which work much better than the trouble prone Mini-30.

If you decide to go with 5.56 then the Mini-14...

I already had exactly what I wanted except for color. And it was genuine Magpul, if I'd tried to trade, with my luck I'd end up with a counterfeit CTR, etc.

Also the handguards have holes drilled...
