Weaponizing the...AR15 is coming soon.

Yeah yeah - I did a semi-sorta post on it awhile back (old server CF forum) and that thread was moved here and is still lurking in the depths of the new CF forum but it merely scratched the surface of an AR mod thread.

Toying with the idea of a “DIY precision rifle on a budget” thread and maybe some CZ and Beretta pistol stuff as well.

:lol:

There isn’t too much polishing to be done on an AR...depending on the parts you start with, there may be quite a bit of deburring and tuning involved. If you started with a milspec rifle (M4 profile w/carbine length gas system especially), the amount of tuning required is considerable.

What is the difference between a stock AR and fully tuned AR?
Stock ARs often damage brass due to inconsistent ejection and they also have much more recoil and muzzle rise than necessary. The grip angle is off for most people and the factory adjustable stocks have a decent amount of wobble. The triggers are often trash or close to it. Their buffer systems and springs are far too noisy.

Weaponized AR:
More accurate
Much better trigger pull
Considerably quieter buffer system
Brass consistently ejects to 4 o’clock and forms a neat pile of undamaged brass
Muzzle rise and felt recoil are roughly on par with a 10/22
Much smoother operation overall

Setup works on most gas systems with minor adjustments. It will even work on most of the so-called “cheap” ARs that people like to trash talk after they spend $1500 or more on a higher end AR...because they don’t know how to tune them and almost always buy the wrong parts. ;-)

I hope you talk about reloading for an AR/M4 as well. I'm interested in reducing buffer spring twang. I will be watching this tread with interest! I'm pretty happy with mine the way it's set up, no butt stock wobble,and no wobble between the upper and lower. I suspect it might be just a tad over gassed.

Easiest way to spot overgassing is usually the ejection angle. If your AR dings up brass it is usually because it is bouncing it off of the deflector as a result of really violent ejection. If your AR ejects brass at around 3 o’clock or forward, it is almost certainly overgassed. When they are dialed in, brass will land in a fairly neat pile between 3:30 and 4 o’clock when the barrel represents 12 o’clock.

I shot in a carbine match yesterday and I would guess 90% of them were overgassed by a considerable amount based on how badly they were denting brass and the fact most were ejecting brass at around 2 o’clock.

The most annoying part of reloading for an AR is the initial brass processing. While I still do a lot of my own, it gets more and more tempting to send it off to a brass processing service like M&S Brass. They will fully process 2500+ for $95. That includes cleaning, primer pocket swaging, resizing, polishing, etc. It basically shows up ready to load.

That is a good deal. $40 for 1000 rounds of 300 BLK converted brass is nice too. I've made my own but I'd gladly pay $40 for that.

Edit: Actually already packed up 1000 cases and will ship them off in the morning.

I’ll need to pay attention to this thread.

I just pulled out a old Bushmaster AR that only has about 50 rounds through it.

I pulled the A2 sight/gas block off & installed a low profile gas block, so I could mount a scope on the pica tiny rail.

My eyes have gone bad, can’t see the targets passed 20 yards.

I would love to learn how to tune up the AR.
