    DSA is kinda local to me.

    I don't know about what they are doing now, but their old stuff (think two-three years ago) was a fucking steal IMO. I've been there and met their guys, and they were real legit guys who loved playing with guns.

    Little known thing.... they used to be somewhat of a custom shop. They were known locally as doing some fairly neat builds, and would do so while you watched.

    1/9 is kind of a bitch but otherwise that's decent

    shit i might pull the trigger on one of these. I'm in school and was gonna build the upper I want over the course of the next year or year and a half but this would hold me over until I could build it all at once.

    the only thing i dont want is 1:9. Will 1:9 do fine for most ammo until i can build something better?

    Yes, 1/9 will stabilize just about everything that fits in an AR mag including 75gr TAP

    I think thats probably being too confident, and its more accurate to say tap might stabilize and that even if it does a change in elevation or temperature might cause your group to turn into a pattern the next time you shoot.

    You can get a complete dedicated CMMG .22 upper with one mag from THT for $490 shipped. I'm thinking that would be the better way to go for a .22 build.

    I realize it's right on the edge of stabilization but either way, there are still plenty of good bullet choices for a 1/9 barrel if he's even going to use it for that.

    Take a look at 75gr 5.56 TAP, rather than the .223 version :o

    The next run is supposed to be 1:7 and a little more expensive. I think I might snap one of these up for a beater even if its 1:9 and not chrome lined.
