My Grendel/LBC build for hunting/TS
New to the board and I'm looking forward to learning a lot. I'll start off by saying that this build is going to be mostly dedicated towards hunting (Occasional competitive shooting) and I stalk on the ground a lot when I hunt, so I wanted a fairly light weight rifle. I was originally moving towards the 6.8spc but I started leaning towards the grendel's ballistics over the 6.8's variety of factory ammo choices. This build will end up going suppressed later on this year so keep that in mind as well.
Current specs on my lower build:
-Mega machine Gator forged lower
-PSA LPK w/ Gissele SSA-E trigger
-RRA Operator fixed A2 stock
-Magpul trigger guard
I ordered a AR Performance .264LBC 18" SS bead blasted barrel with 5/8x24 threads and a matching ARP bolt last Friday.
For my upper build I'm planning on going with:
-Mega Machine forged upper assembly
-Noveske Switchblock gas block
-Samson Evolution 9 EX rail
-Mega charging handle
-Nickel Boron bolt carrier http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Kies...p/kies-kcn.htm
-Three 45* rail sections mounted to top rail two for BUIS third for a Burris Fastfire(or similar)
-Undecided on scope still, possibly a Vortex Viper PST
Feel free to comment with suggestions, concerns, or personal experiences with either of the parts I listed
