    Chamberings for a switch barrel rifle

    Looking at putting together a switch barrel system and after some reading WTO seems like a good shop and an easy system. It ain’t no MRAD or AXMC but it won’t cost as much either. Thinking a defiance action with an AX 338 chassis. Now I come to the decision on chamberings. I know I want 308...

    Bergara build question

    I was curious if anybody out there has done this or thought of doing this. I really like the Christensen arms mpr for its chassis (lightweight and folding stock) but to save cost and arguably a better rifle, though about dropping a bergara into a Mpr chassis for rem 700 and clones. Only...

    AR-10 Build Question on specing out my new project

    I know that AR-10's are not a lego as AR-15s, being I kind of have to stay inside a specific style. The Style I have chose is Aero's M5 (I did not have the funds for Seekins or I would of went that route) I felt it was best to get a Lower and some mags in the safe prior to the upcoming...

    Tikka T3x Rebarrel

    I'm sure there is a better forum to have this in, but as a new guy I'm not sure which one, so feel free to move it. Now to the meat of the post. I have a tikka t3x action that I am considering rebarreling myself with a prefit (It will probably be a shouldered prefit). The goal is to be a...

    DPMS GII built up or DPMS LR-308 build?

    I am wanting to get an AR type in .308 WIN and having a hard time deciding how to go about it. I like the idea of the GII of being lighter by a bit and having some more compatability. However to my understanding it is easier to mess with the more standard DPMS 308 stuff. Thoughts and opinions...
