It's done...finally...

JayhawkerJayhawker ModeratorPosts: 15,213 Senior Member


PSA 8.5" 5.56 MLOK upper
Ruger lower
SOB Brace
Magpul BUS
Magpul MOE grip
Magpul Enhanced trigger guard
Ambidextrous safety
Vortex SPARC II Red Dot
25" overall length...

Without a doubt the handiest AR variant I've ever used...everybody that picks it up and shoots it ends up wanting one...

I have found that I prefer to use 20 round magazines though I tried a friend's Magpul 60 round mag in it...the coolness factor was off the charts but it's just too heavy to be practical....

More detailed range report to follow...

    Very nice! I beed to follow your lead and make a shorter setup luke this. It looks very handy.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Is it an SBR? I mean the bbl is 8" long?

    No.. it's a pistol. Under 26"', has a a BATF approved brace that cannot be adjusted for length as opposed to a stock, lower was sold as a pistol lower and registered with the state as a pistol.

    I like your set up a lot. Have you shot it yet?

    Very well done! You SUCK.

    I LIKE it! Looks like it will get the job done.

    I bought one of the Shockwave Technologies Blade braces for my pistol AR but haven't tested it yet.

    I like it, my box'Oparts is full and I need to put one together, are you able to compare the SOB to a Sig brace in your experience?

    Fair enough, I am thinking the braces are not going to change things very much brace to brace being that the have to be of a similar dimension.
