    A whole lotta parts that are not on the truck.
    I wonder what magic Larue is putting into those barrels. I’ve never bought a complete upper or rifle. All my guns are franken guns. The two ARs I’ve built are using Noveske barrels which I’ve found are well worth the hefty price tag. They are tac-drivers. So, I’ll say the barrel is the heart of any good system when it comes to ARs.

    Its great to see manufactures putting together good systems. It’s a great value, getting both good quality and ergonomics in the same package. Rather than building something only to find it doesn’t feel so nice in the hands.:thumbsup:

    All I have right now is the lower and some parts so I’m still pretty much wide open as far as direction

    My 18” Larue is an ultimate tack driver. On a good day, I can shoot 5 shot groups less than an inch @100 yards. With my other ARs, I’m getting 1”-1.5” groups.

    A 2fer on Tuesday. Have to be thrifty so on the bottom is a new Tippmann M4-22 pistol with a Mask. 1 range day with it so far and I'm impressed. As reliable as any other rimfire I own and way cheaper to run through 500 rounds on AR controls (Also get bonus malfunction drills because cheap 22lr is cheap).

    On the top for length reference, and because the discussion was accurate uppers is an 18" BSF barrel that I tried all the accuracy lore with (squared the receiver face, shimmed the barrel/receiver interface) and it is way more accurate than me.

    Got fished in by a Cheaper Than Dirt email and ordered a Wilson Combat lower with no real plan. Probably build it up with a LaRue trigger for my nice rifle, then decide what I want to do with the other lower. I don't have a .22LR, so might go that route.

    I always wanted to build an AR in 22lr.

    Same but then I just bought a m&p 15-22 for less than $400 a long time ago and it scratched that itch.

    Palmetto makes a 22LR upper, but who knows what kind of itch I will have when stock is available. All my current lowers are built out with standard kits, just thought I might put together a nicer one. But that leaves me with an unused one, and we can't have that.

    I'm the opposite right now. Spare upper with no lower.

    well i'm at the point where I have enough ar's that I can be picky about the lowers I want. The problem with that right now is everyone's price is still super inflated. I'll just have to wait it out. Not paying $250 for a stripped blem geissele lower haha.

    Why not try out a CMMG .22LR conversion Bravo kit? Much cheaper and your friends can use it in their ARs when they run low on ammo.

    I tried one, shot like garbage because the AR barrel twist is too fast. Bought an actual 22 barrel, all better.

    I actually had one of these also before I got my 15-22. Figured it was a good trade off but then I just figured to pay a little extra for a whole complete gun that has the proper twist rate barrel. those kits around liek $180 is. For $150 more i was able to get a whole 15-22.

    I guess for my COF practice I don't mind it's accuracy within 40 yards

    I did look at those and did a bit of research and came to a similar conclusion as golfindia. I would prefer a dedicated .22 barrel. That said, who knows what I will end up doing, but open to hear about any options anyone has tried.

    I've heard it called a Big Fucking Deal, which I agree with. They're almost as good as a suppressor for being able to run a brake when you're alone but not have it concuss bystanders when there's company.

    The wardens have been discontinued which caused price on the muzzle devices that work with them and also the wardens to jump in price. Avg price is now $190 if in stock anywhere or $200 in the gun community market.
    That being said, I've used a warden, kvp linear comp and a slr linear comp all on my 11.5 in and it does help a little with concussion to you and those around you.
