It's a 24" E.R. Shaw barrel with RRA upper, Stag lower. Don't much care for the stock and thinking on a Gisselle 2 stage trigger. I'm done breaking in the barrel, now to go pop some critters! It's still a virgin!

Great looking AR. If you decide to go with the Geissele, you shouldn't be disappointed. I love mine!

Well, that's what I get for waiting this long. I was building my CMMG exactly like yours with an A2 buttstock instead and I'm sure a less pricey scope. Same setup in .204. It looks amazing to see it built. You've got a PM headed your way for some other details.

Looks really cool. How much was the upper? I know you said it's an ER Shaw barrel, but I don't think they make complete uppers?

Thank you for the responses. If I had to build it again I could have saved some loot. But sometimes my need for instant gratification gets the best of me! I purchased my lower stripped receiver for $150.00 plus $25.00 FFL dookie. It is a Stag lower. Good rep and a lifetime warranty. The trigger I bought ($60.00) is a standard military issue single stage from Stag. It's a little heavy pull so I'm thinking on the Gisselle 2 stager. The pistol grip is a Houge which feels great in the hand and costs around $25.00. The stock is a regular joe blow but lacks a good cheek weld. Magpul is what will replace it. The bullet button costs around $20.00 and is required in California. Easy to use but it sucks. I keep a 25-06 full metal jacket bullet in my pocket as my tool. I purchased a complete upper for $625.00. Here's the link - http://www.pkfirearms.com/store/get_items.aspx?type=0&term=106. It took 5 buisiness days to arive at my door. (instant gratification :signbummer8tl: ) the upper is a RRA bolt carrier with an ER Shaw 24" Stainless steel varmint heavy barrel with 1/12 twist chambered in .204 Ruger, 2 pc solid free float tube with bipod stud and A3 flat top receiver. The scope is a Leupold VX-I 3-9x50mm. I payed $250.00 plus $50.00 or so for the sun shield and caps. I want to replace the Weaver scope rings with something removeable. Any suggestions would be great! Will this throw off my accuracy? And last but not least, I do not know the weight of the rifle because I do not think bathroom scales are very accurate. Maybe I can take it to the Post Office and have them weigh it? :rofl2: . Last but not least again, I just finished breaking in the barrel. I cleaned after every shot for the first 10 rounds, every other shot for the next 10 and every 3 shots for the next 10 rounds. I will post my results next time I get to the range. They were pretty tight off my bi-pod but I think a new trigger, good bench rest and no coffee will squeeze them holes right up! I hope I answered all your questions and please try not to laugh too hard at what I spent! I'm happy with it and it only took me 3 weeks to build! I'd do it again! Here's one of two pics...

"I want to replace the Weaver scope rings with something removeable. Any suggestions would be great! Will this throw off my accuracy?"If you have the change:Larue LT-104 or LT-139 depending on your needs. Some people use these when they have several different scopes for the same rifle. As long as you put it back in the same grove, it will shoot in the same place.Armaliite also makes a mount that can be had for around $90 and when it was on sale it was $49.The best review for AR-15 mounts I have found is at: http://www.maxicon.com/on this page: http://www.maxicon.c...iece_mounts.htmI just ordered a LT-139 for my AR-10.Good luck,David

I use the Weaver Grand Slam Rings Lever Lock Extra High on several of my rifles. See Midway link if for some reason the picture won't show on the link. But you can just input the Midway product number in search and it will come up. If you double cleck on the link the picture should come up. Funny thing they list my review of the product. WOW how cool is that.http://www.midwayusa.../...&t=11082005 Weaver 1" Grand Slam Rings Lever Lock Matte Extra HighProduct #: 984743Status: AvailableOur Price: $26.99Average Customer Rating

Thanks for the build specs. I looked at the link you provided and I'll be giving them a call on Mon to check on availability of their complete uppers. I think I should spend some money now just in case the November elections drive up prices.

Check Model 1 sales, I think they had the same upper a little cheaper... PK Firearms had mine delivered in 5 business days.

Hey thanks StoneTower. That was one of the better websites I have seen for mounts. Have you ordered from them? They have a lot of goodies! Dennis(the link... http://www.maxicon.com/[/url] "

I believe that the maxicon website is but a review of all the different mounts. If you are interested in a LaRue, they sell them directly. I understand that you get a bunch of cool stuff with it if you order from them directly. I purched my LaRue mount from a guy on AR15.com that had 5 new mounts for sale. This AR10 project is costing me a small fortune and I need to save where I can while getting exactly what I want. Money saved here and there = more ammo :signgreatreport3kg: Good luck,David

Did you have any luck? Were they in stock?

DJ: They scope rings where in stock each time I ordered them. Do go with the extra high rings otherwise your 50mm bell will not clear. I found out the hard way and had to reorder. Bob
