    Barrel Fitment

    " tighter than stock fit and thought that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible." Could turn out to be a great barrel and hope it works well for you. My only concern was if the slide would wear to the tighter barrel take15 will get you 15% off if anyone else decides to try them out.

    Barrel Fitment

    "My question is why buy it if you were iffy about them??" Lot of positive reviews made me feel okay about purchasing it. Bought it to try a comp and figured give it a try and If it didn't like a comp, I wasn't out much. Really had no concerns until I noticed the tighter than stock fit and though that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. Also do not expect a $50 barrel to last as long as a factory or KKM etc so hence the reason for not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible. Everything about the barrel looks okay. Rounds fit okay, gun goes into battery. Rifling looks shallow and the finish could be better but it is what I would expect at the price point. Will post up results compared to stock when I get a chance to shoot it.

    Barrel Fitment

    "Shoot it. It will be fine" Thanks "What Brand Barrel?" This amazing $51 delivered masterpiece. http://www.combatarmory.com/combat-armory-barrel-fits-glock-19-stainless-new-9mm-match-grade-barrel-threaded/ Not something I want to make a long term commitment to or alter my slide by using.

    Barrel Fitment

    Picked up a cheap threaded barrel to play with on a 19. It fits tighter than the factory barrel. Have never swapped a barrel before and am concerned that the slide may wear to the cheap tighter fitting barrel making the factory barrel fit even looser. It is an MOS slide so I do not want to screw it up. Something to worry about or just shoot it?

    advice with first AR15 build

    https://suparms.com/collections/adjustable-gas-blocks-direct-impingement set screw is smaller diameter, I prefer clamp. Specs are on the website. JP has a nice low profile .750 block that should fit https://www.jprifles.com/buy.php?item=JPGS-9D Rifle above is pretty much the setup you are building. Barrel is not the match series. It is light out front and points fast.

    advice with first AR15 build

    Superlative .625 fits fine. The .750 may fit. It is a really great hand guard. Good profile, installs easy, comes with a torque key. Been very happy with it. (looks like i may need to adjust the block if I get bored)

    Faxon match, Faxon gunner, Odin, BA

    Have a 16" gunner with the superlative block. Tried different ammo, bolts, deep cleaned, different scope, broke apart and reassembled, brake no brake etc but could never get consistent moa groups out of it. Seems like it shifts when it warms. Contacted faxon, not much response. I love the weight and use it for bays now but do not trust it for much else. Built an upper using an 18" criterion hybrid barrel and have been impressed with it's accuracy. It is sub moa with pretty basic ammo. I enjoy shooting the faxon and know some people who have had good luck with them but when it is time to replace it will go with another brand.

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    https://moaprecisionllc.com/product/patrick-kelley-signature-edition-stoeger-p3k/ Looks like Tom still offers it prebuilt. New website looks nice and there are some great looking stoeger parts.
  10. https://leapers.com/index.php?act=prod_detail&midx=1976&status=new&itemno=AIR32250 You can find these on amazon and some places like primary, optics planet etc. Saw a few at a match some weeks back and picked up a set for a back up gun. Installed about like most others and appears well made, have not zeroed yet. Included torque specs, wrench etc.

    G34 gen4 mos slight issue

    Tape seems to do a good job of protecting the vortex on a MOS that I use. Black tape doesn't even look like it is there.

    Good Quality, Slick Safety Earmuffs

    Gel cups for Howard Leight sports make for a pretty decent ear muff. The seal and comfort is light years ahead of the standard offering. The seal seems to make a large difference in noise reduction. I would double up when shooting an AR with a comp on the clock if wearing muffs. Not an audiologist, operator, leo, or pro shooter so your results may vary. https://www.amazon.com/Noisefighters-Thick-Relief-Glasses-Impact/dp/B07HYG5KY9/ref=pd_sim_469_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07HYG5KY9&pd_rd_r=31cd1370-d929-11e8-8ab2-735607aeb124&pd_rd_w=nNZIy&pd_rd_wg=7uGxu&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=18bb0b78-4200-49b9-ac91-f141d61a1780&pf_rd_r=K9BHNMZ638M8V39MACV1&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=K9BHNMZ638M8V39MACV1

    Limited Irons Build Help

    https://ultradyneusa.com/ more than $100, kind of a weird set up but allows you to run any gas block

    9mm buffer in 223 carbine?

    Some 9mm buffers are extended and some are the same length as a carbine buffer. A "generic" 9mm buffer would be carbine length and weigh about 5.5 oz. or similar to an H3. Google "ar buffer weights chart" and you will see more then you never wanted to know about buffers.
