Not before me :D:P:angry:
Want to bet! :blink: Never say never. :PWhite Oak Armament, they're the varmint side of White Oak Precision. My gun club bought some uppers from the Precision side and they are sweet. The Armament side makes up do it yourself parts.http://www.whiteoakarmament.com http://www.whiteoakprecision.com/

I know you're looking at one of those not yet banned lowers. Sounds good to me. If I didn't already own and have these guns registered (paper work from hell!) I'd sure look at buying one. ;)

John,I wouldnt be getting another one if CA wasn't all about keeping me from having one! I have 2 in MO already in 223 so I am seriously considering a 25 WSSM that I could take to WY for antelope and then swap out an upper for cheap plinking at prairie dogs.

But since it's the last thing some animals will ever see it should be pretty don't you think? ;)B)

Then my 17HM2 would make some varmint very happy :)That is if they don't spot my yellow stock from a mile away.PANA0053.jpg

As a semi-retired motor head I am here to tell you that quality machine work is NOT cheap. Considering the work that goes into making this spiral fluting come out correctly this really is a good price in MHO.Joel,I am sure a varmint would be proud to have their demise come via that nice looking setup!!

The price of spiral fluting just caught me off guard. I'd pay $125 as it does tie in the whole setup to make it look very unique.BTW - do a lot of squirrel/coyote hunters use AR's?

I decided to have another upper built. I am going with a 25 WSSM this time around. It will do double duty as a predaotr rifle for me and a great deer rifle for my wife and or sister in-law. Undoubtedly my brother may want to take it with him to WY next year for antelope and then swap over to the 223 for the prairie dogs after the antelope hunt is finished!!

Just last night I found a .17 upper for sale. I called the guy and we're going to work out the shipping arrangements. I can't wait to get them both now. :huh:

When you get that 223 upper on Wednesday you'll have to get some pictures of it after its "mounted" !!

So far it's sight unseen but I know it has a 22 inch bead blasted Douglas stainless barrel. I'm waiting for some pictures and shipping info. I just wanted to put a hold on it so it didn't slip away like another gun I wanted did recently. He said it's only had a few hundred rounds through it. I hope it looks good.
