Upper is here and I need an action block and an armorers wrench to install the YHM rail.
i'm ordering mine with the rail preinstalled
How did you not know this?
Ordered the rail and other shit before I got the upper. Cheaper.
I could help with the wrench but I haven't got a block yet. Check some army/navy places, I found a few around that do simple smithing on the side or for their personal use, they were kind enough to let me use their bench for the action block to install a barrel.
what upper and how much was it + the rails? i know CMMG has them available for installation before they ship
More than what I got it for from Eagle + rail covers + G2 tapeswitch + VFG + YHM gas block front sight.
RRA Mid Length CAR A4 flattop upper with a Badger Tac Latch for $463 shipped.
yeah, the YHM lightweight carbine rails (that im going to be getting) are +$105 to the $575 CMMG 14.5" upper w/phantom 5C1
Almost went with CMMG, but Pete had better and a hell of a lot more endorsements. Mid length ARs are hard to find.
I might take you up on that. I don't see myself ever building another AR, since I set this one up the way I wanted, so buying another tool and block seems a little pointless.
who is this Pete person?
Pete @ Legal Transfers.
Seems competitively priced with the guys I normally buy from.
Steve @ Adco wants $410 for a midlength RRA upper.....figure a little for the latch (which is cool btw)..+ ship
it's about the same.
mid crew holla
i had to wait forever for my upper from rra
I didn't need a block when I put mine together, I was able to tourqe it enough by hand. Grabbed it by the magwell and the wrench and twisted as hard as I could.
