So I have this lower..... Login/Join 
Member
posted
Several months ago I bought a few stripped lowers.
I fairly rapidly used 2 of them.
The 3rd has been sitting in the safe ever since.
Was at Cabelas yesterday and picked up a lower parts kit.
Put it all together today.. so I now have an assembled lower sitting in the safe.

Am trying now to decide what to do with it.

I already have:
Sig MCX (9" 300blk SBR) (i know i know... not an AR)
Aero Precision (10.5" SBR)
Barret Rec7 (16" piston)
Sig M400 (16" DI)
Palmetto State (16" DI)
Barret Rec7 DMR (18" piston)
Aero Precision (20" DI)

Suggestions?

Can I get an 8-inch barrel so I can put it on my pistol lower?

10.5 inch 9mm pistol with brace.

I have a 9mm carbine with 16 barrel, and Colt 32 round stick magazines. One of the most fun guns I own. I'd make it into a pistol, but I can't because this particular lower came from the factory as a rifle.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

You really need to figure out what you want to do with the end product. Otherwise it will collect dust in your safe. If you're uncertain, I'd let the lower sit for awhile.

To throw a wrench in the works, there's no need for a 1-to-1 ratio of lowers to uppers. I stopped thinking that way a few years ago.

You have a solid range of barrel lengths in 223. Therefore if you stay with 223 you'd be looking at redundancy.

There are a number of the other calibers available for an AR-15. Consider your purpose -- plinking, steel targets, paper targets, training, competition, hunting, HD, backup rifle.

Do you hand load or do you rely on factory ammo? What distance to targets? What are your ballistics expectations -- flight and/or energy on target? What are your plans for optics, if any? What's you budget? Are you planning to suppress?

Oh - I also have a Sig MPX w/ pistol brace
Barrel chopped to 5" with an omega9k on it
So I'm good to go w/ regards to a 9mm subgun

(also have a Kris Vector SBR in .45)


5.7 is interesting.... I might go that route....
But then I would "have to" get an FN-57 and a PS90 to go with it...

I've been considering getting a Franklin Binary trigger to put in one of my SBR'd lowers ... this is my 12" barrel ... you can shoot mag's or belts ... or Beta-C mags if you have them Smile



If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink
