Building my first all-around AR15. I'm going for a mid to lightweight rifle. Something that is nimble enough to shoot on the move within 25Y while having competent accuracy out to 100Y.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
Lower/Upper & Handguard (Already purchased) - Aero Precision M4E1 (5.56) Matched Upper/Lower Combo & Aero Precision Atlas S-One 15"
Lower Parts Kit - Probably Sionics
BCG - Toolcraft Nickel Boron
Charging Handle - Radian Raptor LT
Muzzle Device - Seekins ATC
Buffer Tube - BCM Intermediate A5
Spring/Buffer - Vltor rifle length spring and H2 buffer kit
Stock - MFT Minimalist. I have it on another rifle and I like it.
Optic Mount - Thinking Aero Precision Ultralight SPR for weight considerations.
Gas Tube/Gas Block - TBD after barrel order is placed. Since I don't plan to run suppressed I'll likely go non-adjustable.
Trigger - Haven't decided yet but will have street sprice below $200 (sorry Geissele). Thinking Larue MBT-2S or Wilson Combat 3-Gun Tactical Trigger Unit. No experience with either but heard good things.
A lot of these things are personal preference but I would really like to hear praise and criticisms if you have experience with anything listed here.
In addition, I've been to the moon and back on barrels. I could use the most help here. Here's what's left on my short list:
Black River Tactical Optimum Light 5.56 (CMV 4150 w/ a 1:8 twist nitride barrel, 24 oz) - Comes with a factory pinned intermediate length gas system and 0.625" gas journal. Criterion/ADM 16" Lightweight Contour .223 Wylde (CMV 4150 w/ 1:8 twist nitride barrel, 24 oz) - Midlength gas system and 0.750" gas journal. Criterion/Midwest MI-C16H223 16-inch Hybrid Profile .223 Wylde AR Barrel (CMV 4150 w/ a 1:8 twist Chrome-Lined barrel, 27 oz) - Midlength gas system and 0.625" gas journal. Rainier Arms Match .223 Wylde Rifle Barrel Lightweight (Stainless 416R w/ a 1:8 twist nitride barrel, 27 oz) - Midlength gas system and 0.625" gas journal. Larue PredatAR 16" .223 Wylde (Stainless w/ a 1:8 twist nitride barrel, 27 oz) - Midlength gas system and 0.625" gas journal.
All are under 28 ounces and $300, which is where I'm comfortable being. I'm not a high volume shooter so I don't know if I should just avoid chrome-lined entirely. I'm also not sure if I should stick to 4150 in these lightweight profiles. I could see the stainless barrels getting pretty whippy with quick follow-up shots.
Thanks in advance for your replies,
