I changed out the handguard, stock and muzzlebrake.¬† I bought it with a Midwest Industries handguard but after a very short time I decided I didn’t liek it.¬† It felt to small.¬† I changed it to a Yankee Hill Diamond Series Handguard (ridle length, $120.).¬† It had a standard flash hider on it.¬† I changed that to a Ranier Arms Muzzlebrake ($50.)¬†that works GREAT ! !¬† Hardly any muzzle flip.¬† And a Magpul ACS-L Stock ($79.).¬† Also switched the trigger guard with a Magpul and an Ergo Magwell grip.¬† The fisrt pic (top left) shows the ACS-L stock.
Location: At the pound looking for a Dawg....Very nice…¬† I’m in the process of building out a few.The end is near....I bought the one above but I also built one (5.56) with a 20 inch barrel. ¬†I built the below AR over a 2 year period and just bought a piece here and there (before the AR epidemic). ¬†I only have about $380. in the basic gun. ¬†I did upgrade the stock after a little while and the scope, bi-pod and grips. ¬†The only other thing I will probably do is change the hand guard to a free float. ¬†I got the barrel for nothing so I went cheap at first. ¬†Both my AR’s are built on Palmetto State Armory (PSA) lower receivers. ¬†I have two more lowers (one I put the lower parts kit in and the other is still striped).The 16 inch (Stainless barrel) is chambered in .223 Wylde with 1:8 twist.
The 20 inch (with bi pod) is a standard military barrel chambered in 5.56 NATO with 1:7 twist.

Location: At the pound looking for a Dawg....How are you liking the ACS-L?¬† I’ve got one here on the pile but haven’t tried it yet…The end is near....

I love it ! ! ¬† It is solid for an adjustable stock. ¬†It locks in great at any position. ¬†Is light and has a compartment for batteries for my EOTech. ¬†I had a standard stock but it had a little movement in it that wouldn’t stop (they all do). ¬†It’s noticeable. ¬†For the money ($79) I couldn’t go wrong.
I have an Ergo F93 8 position stock on my 20 inch AR and it works great for that gun as it levels out the front weight. ¬†And the 20 inch is usually benched or on the ground (bi pod). ¬†I think the Ergo is to heavy for a carry AR. ¬†But the Ergo F93 is GREAT !

Is that SS pipe a match series¬†from Ranier as well?¬† Ive been looking at staritng my next build with one (middy)¬†but now Ive found one 1:7 from a different brand¬†that I think Ill try instead.¬† I hear nothing but good things about the¬†Ranier barrels.¬† I also like the Ranier shorty comp/break but it does give off a heck of a flame.
I had planned on starting the build by now but funds have been tight.¬† Think Ill do the upper complete first and keep the lower stripped for a while.¬† I can always run the upper on my existing complete guns as a test drive.

The barrel is not Raniers Arms.¬† I think it’s an FN barrel.¬† I bought¬†the¬†whole gun from PSA and FN makes there barrels so….¬† I’m not at home to check.¬† The Ranier Arms Muzzle Break¬†does throw a flame with some types of¬†ammo…. but still love it.¬† I hear ya on the funds.¬† I have a complete PSA lower I put together but no money to start the upper.¬† I also have another stripped lower (PSA) but no money to do anything with it.¬† I’ve been putting money into reloading and hunting (archery).
