Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Truck Gun

#1 Post by LEP » Wed May 15, 2019 2:45 pm

I was never a fan of the AR/M16 platform due to my active duty experience, but I couldn't pass up building a couple once I came back from over 5 years in the mideast. The prices had been ridiculous.
So, I decided to build a 'truck' gun. Something that could be used by anyone-righty or lefty, was weather resistant, didn't snag on stuff, etc.
My question: have you run across economical variations that are better than the parts I used? Haven't gotten an ambi charging handle, yet.

Nice job. I'm always amazed how well they shoot.

The market is saturated with AR rifles now. In fact you can put together a stand AR for around $400 for everything. Nothing fancy but they work just fine.
