    We can have AR's, AK, and all manner of black rifles though a OLL loophole. CA is buying more lowers and uppers than any other state in the nation.

    That sounds like it would be badass when you are done. I like your rifle, but that was the first thing I thought about when I saw it - "it needs a UBR or something heavier in the back". Just looks like the CTR would be too lightweight to balance out the front-end. I still haven't played with one of those yet, get one and tell us what the deal is with them.

    Oh, and a FUG? Damn, you must be ballin outta control son. I just hacked down some $10 gunshow VFG and rocked my ghetto ass on. :rofl:

    Looks like CA has some nice black rifles. Mines a registered AW so it doesn't really count as a OLL

    Another black rifle CA guy here :) (well, FDE/Black)
    And please don't refer to OLLs as a "loophole". I know what you mean, but we aren't exploiting the law in any way.

    Just made some calls.

    Got the rail and gas block, should be in tomorrow.
    Sold my Samson rail and ARMS flip up sight last night on EE.
    Now all I need to do is sell my EOTech for like 300 or so, and find an Aimpoint CompM2 for about 350-400. Then I need to wait until I can find some magpul MBUS. then I am done :)

    Just "ordered" a larue LT-129 mount.

    Guy kinda rushed me off the phone, and hung up on me. Name was Paul. Fucker. Time to bitch on AR15.com?
     
  11. I actually talked to Paul a few days ago to order a Troy sight and he was really nice. Maybe Mark was about to start telling one of his stories and Paul didn't want to miss it.

    Yeah, he took down my info, but sounded extremely rushed, probably put it down on paper.

    Whats the turnaround time for Larue stuff? He said they'd have to make it, and it'd take a few days.

    UPS tried to deliver my rail and gas block today, but no one was home to sign for it.

    Luckily, the local hub was 10 mins away, on the way back from work.

    Worked overtime for two hours until it was time to go will call my shit

    Got there, picked it up, came home, BAM rail on the upper.

    Is your gas block being held in by set screws?

    Did you dimple your barrel, stake the set screw, or just use red loctite?

    With the new drilling/tappings jigs for pinning gas blocks from Rainier Arms, i'm thinking of pinning my accuracy build's gas block.

    Did not stake the set screws, used loctite in the threads, still on there pretty solidly. shot close to over 1000rds in this config with no problems so far.
