You'll be very happy with it. Great company.You all convinced me to go with Grendel Hunter. Just ordered it. They are out of BCGs, but that can come later.
I ordered this one:
19″ Fluted/Target Crown] 6.5 Grendel – Stainless
I have a new Weaver Tactical 3-15 EMDR to mount.
Good looking upper, I’m interested in a range report, my kids need a hunting rifle and it seems most grendels and early 6mm arc’s are on the heavier side, and I don’t want to buy a proof carbon fiber barrel for a 150yd and under deer rifleReceived my Grendel Hunter 20 inch upper yesterday. It is a beauty.
Slapped on a Midwest Industries Picatinny rail section on the bottom for a bipod and a MI sling adapter on the left.
Ordered a bolt carrier group from Aero Precision because Grendel Hunter was backordered on the BCG. Then I ordered two E-lander mags from Midway USA.
Now to find my ammo.

The secret is their handguards. Lightweight but very sturdy, long, steel barrel nut. Somehow they still keep a 15.5 inch handguard ~12oz including barrel nut and mounting hardware.That’s why the GH uppers caught my eye, I did a bunch of math and I could get a 18” 6.5 grendel to weigh around 7.5-8lbs with a 3-9 scope and the AR platform for kids with very short LOP
Friend of mine has the LaRue, It's a damn good gun imo.I like my LaRue upper. I've never had a malfunction and it shoots the factory Hornady American Gunner good enough for shooting steel, less than an inch, but not half inch by any means.
Its a good value and if you don't need the lower parts, you can sell them pretty easily.
