Seems like a good deal...
I know nothing about ARs, but it looks good to me
If it were mid length, I'd have bought that motherfucker right now
What about those helical fluted barrels? Good, bad, indifferent?
useless and ghey
if it's a kit you want, check http://ar15sa.fatcow.com/store/page2.html
Pete's a great gut and will talk you through the deal
How much extra would a decent lower cost?
120ish plus ffl
Rainer is a good place to to business with.
how hard is it to convert carbine to midlength?
You don't you buy a midlength barrel. it's just easier that way if your talking about gas systems. If you want to just run a free floating midlength handguard, thats easy.
i don't know enough to care about the gas systems, i guess. i just prefer the look of the midlength hand guard over the carbine.
so you just swap the barrel and the handguard? whats the difference in the gas systems?
Ive got a Pelican AR15 handguard mount and flashlight if youre interested. Its over in the yardsale
sell me your M4 stock and trigger kit that you have now.
A midlength gas system is a couple inches longer than a carbine gas system. Basically they drill the hole for the gas further down the barrel. It makes for a smoother and more consistent gas flow. In other words, its not worth your time or money to try and convert a carbine gas system to a midlength. You just buy a new barrel.
If you don't want to change the barrel you can just change the handguards to midlength handguards provided you have a low profile gas block.
if you plan to put on a scope or something on that flat top get a barrel without a front sight.
Even if you put a scope on it even a 3-9 on 3 power will just show a barely visable blur at the bottom of the glass. Having said that, I think it looks silly to have the front sight (at least no flip) on scoped gun. Scopes on carry handles are even worse .
Rock River Arms has a complete kit for less.
You can order it w/chrome lined barrel for $680.00
They don't mention a mid, I imagine you could call and check on it.
Would look alot cooler with a Pelican 2390
shameless plug what
All the cool kids are shooting 1:7 twist.
yeah, that ranks right up there
isnt that the light you're selling?
no chrome-lined no care.
