AR donor gun or run it? Login/Join

Bought this at a pawn shop, just under $600 tax and all.

My initial thought was to swap over the JP low mass bolt and Geisselle 2 stage trigger to a stock DD rifle already in the safe and try to get most of my money back.

Some decent parts on this one actually.
Could upgrade stock and charging handle or just run it as is.

Has a Vooodoo Ultra Lite barrel, heard of them, decent?

Adjustable gas block also.

Anyone recognize the brake?

What would you do with it?
Definitely going to shoot it first.

Yeah, part it out and get your money out of it.

Some quality parts in there, but if you have a DD in the safe, I doubt it would impress you compared to that.

Looks like the JP bolt is pretty pricey, anyone run one?
Was just spot checking some of the parts online, looks like someone was well north of 1k on this build at retail prices.

That thing may just be a real shooter! Between the LW barrel, low mass carrier and adjustable block (oh, and brake!), recoil will be like a BB gun and I bet it will handle real nice.

Just the bolt, trigger, ambi mag release are worth that. Good deal.

Looks like someone tossed together a decent lightweight build.

See how it shoots, go from there.
Ok, you have an AR in the safe, nothing says you can't have TWO!

Run it!!!!
If you don’t like it then swap the parts to other guns. I have a bunch of those Rainier uppers they had a blemish sale on them years back and they were like $50. I could not find a blemish on any that I bought.

I also say keep it. It looks like a nice gun with some good parts. The brake might make it a little loud but even that, I wouldn't complain for the money spent.

If not the Precision Armament, very similar design.

That I would bet a quarter on, not just a nickel. A friend has a Miculek style brake on one of his ARs and I must literally stand behind him when timing his shooting. This one appears to direct the muzzle blast even more to the rear, so it will probably be even worse (and perhaps why the gun was sold in the first place if the previous owner was not familiar with other types of muzzle devices).

Looks good or better to me. I would not be anxious to part it out or dump it. Clean and Lube it and have at it. I am betting it would do as well as AR's costing close to $1k.

If you offer it here guessing you will find a taker at $600

In your 4th photo, the hand guard looks canted. Or is it just the photo?

Run the hell out of it. Then sell it to someone on Sigforum for $600.
