Just ordered a hoodie and shirt!

I think I'll be going to do only a partial hk416 build and used the sig516 upper instead.ill have hk parts stuff around but I won't go as hardcore as you crazy fucks with full on hk everything.

Better off using the sig lower or the brownells for the sig 516upper?

 

I think you missed that I was going to send you a free shirt, so I'll just hook you up with some extras.

 

Re: HK build, I was going balls to the wall until Brownells basically told me to pound sand regarding my gas piston orders. Now I'm going to take my sweet ass time and wait for the better deals to kick in, and see how the ATF situation plays out. If all is well I'll return the Brownells handguard and barrel, and go for the nefarious shorter barrel and a Geissele or Remington handguard.

Meanwhile, I think I might join you and put the 516 upper on the BRN lower.

They are virtually identical, save for the hole on the buffer end of the m400.

Guys, the HK (BRN) lower can't take some mags, at least from what I read on Brownell's....just a PSA, in case it mattered to y'all thinking of using one on a non-HK build.

I guess pmags won't work, for example.

Thats been the case with all the HK AR platforms until recently with the new angled lower design. USGI and Lancer mags are fine. Same with Gen 3 pmags and all HK mags. Its mostly the older gen pmags that dont work. Magpul had special ones made prior to Gen3 just for the HK but I forget the name.

Thanks for the heads up ya'll. I actually read that earlier, and ordered a bunch of Gen 3 pmags from Primary Arms, and recently the aluminum mags from Sig.

Yeah this was my concern,the lower is cool as fuck though but I might go with a sig lower for this one.

What would something similar to this with a good geissele mount cost?

You could get the strike eagle for about 300 and vortext mount for another 100

Like serge said the strike eagle is a great option or the primary arms stuff is worth looking at.

Unless you are doing a clone build, ACOGs are generally regarded as a thing of the past. They lived a good life, but they are generally going the way of the dodo in the SOF(SOCOM has dropped them etc) community and competition for a reason, LVPO and an offset dot for the win IMO. 

 

They just cant do what a quality  LVPO, especially with an off set dot mounted can do. Hell the new ACSS reticle is practically one of the few things keeping them alive lol.

Quality optics, with robust turrets that actually give the moa adjustments claimed, arent delicate, have good glass Quality and gather light well etc, actually give you 1x.... tend to be pricy IME.

 

That said when the 5-750 dollar range has some solid perfoming options in the 1-4 and 1-6 range.

I’d go with the PST GEN 2 1-6. Big upgrade over the strike eagle and not near as expensive as the razor.

Another option would be to look at the Swampfox Arrowhead LVPO. Comes in 1-6,1-8, and 1-10. With the code "WLSISLIFE" you can get 21% off on their website. Just picked up a 1-8 for under $400. Relatively new company. Look up the reviews
