    Honor our soldiers for there heroism. But let us not forget the sacrifice of the time lost by the families at home. Or for every crushed dream when a Father, Mother, or wife hears that there loved one wont be coming back to see them or the children they may leave behind. Yes friends we have sacrificing heroes right here at home. Remember them in our prayers.

    So I'm new to the Grendel (so new in fact that I don't own one yet but am looking for one), and have the opportunity to buy a used one. A Quality Arms one, no less. I was searching the forum for info on the side charging and came across this thread and thought maybe this is a good spot to ask my question.

    Here is the description:
    You get the gun and a very nice pair of LWRC Pop up iron sights. Has a Magpul ACS Stock and Tactical Ergogrip. Comes with 190 brass (even though I've shot less than 100 rounds through it), brass was collected from other shooters, and 300 Hornady reloadable bullet tips that were $40 per box of 100 each. Also comes with the Blackhawk Sportster 9-13" Retractable and pivot bipod. Just bought this beast a few months back is all and am only selling due to some bills, priorities, and other things going on. Gun is not even close to being broken in yet and is in brand new condition, its just been sitting in the gun safe and slicked and cleaned up. Also comes with 2 extra $30 magazines. (3) 24 round magazines and (1) 10 round mag total. Also comes with a custom 6.5 Grendel reloading book. Lastly, it has an additional $180 Rock River Sportster 2 Stage Trigger kit.

    has less than 100 rounds through it. Its not even broken in yet. Asking 1800. Only came with one magazine, but I bought 3 more @ $35 each and each box of Hornady Ammo to reload was $35 also. The bipod is $50 as well.
    So the Grendel rifle with:
    • LWRC Pop up iron sights
    • Magpul ACS Stock
    • Tactical Ergogrip
    • 190 brass
    • 300 Hornady reloadable bullet tips
    • Blackhawk Sportster 9-13" Retractable and pivot bipod
    • 2 extra $30 magazines
    • (3) 24 round magazines
    • (1) 10 round mag
    • custom 6.5 Grendel reloading book
    • $180 Rock River Sportster 2 Stage Trigger kit

    He has it listed at $1800. I offered him $1500. Said he would sell it to me for $1700.

    Good deal?

    As far as the deal on the gun, it sounds like a decent deal. Need to know what kind of lower, barrel, and handguard before a definitive answer is givne.

There isn't much side support needed on an upper and if you compare his to a Mil-Spec forged upper then you will understand that Quality Arms is way stronger. Also the ASA has a slot down the left side for the charge handle too and from what I here it isn't Billet, it extruded. Nothing wrong with them except more expensive, just different processes and both are heavier than a Mil-Spec forged.

    Tedward,
    I too am a little concerned about the amount of material is removed for the left charge/right eject upper. I'm not saying they are making anything that is dangerous or unreliable but there is a lot of material missing. With the higher power of the 6.5 Grendel and additional barrel whip, I would hate to lose that extra material in the upper. Saying that I'm tempted to get a left charger anyway. Because if I wanted to single load rounds while at the range, it would be really nice to have.

    The billet material is actually a tad weaker than a forge material. I'm talking about 7075 billet vs forged. What makes billet upper/lower better is that they are typically thicker in all the good spots than a forging, which makes them stronger.

    I don't know if they put one thru the sledge hammer test and also understand that billet is more brittle as the grain is length wise rather than formed around the curves and so on. Billet it's not weaker, it has different manufacturing processes. Like a log with no knots. A forged is like trying to split a log and it has a knot in it, pretty hard and holds together even by a twisted piece of the grain.

    The pressure of the Grendel has no bearing on the upper as the carrier and bolt take that force and it is just sliding inside the channel at the bottom of the upper receiver. A light weight milspec forged upper would most likely flex more and have less rigidity than QA Upper or almost any Billet Upper. Each to there own and the upper in post #35 looks like what I want so maybe QA will offer a left charge and right eject one day. Right now he is on the path he is on and in time things always seem to change. One point he did make was you can pull back on the left hand charge and load a longer OAL round easier being able to reach in both sides. So you could load ammo easy that doesn't fit in the mag, like when using 140GR pills.
