    The s3g is the best for rapid engagement close quarter stuff

    Faster than any other trigger I know of
    But....long range not so great
    Hard to get used to know when she breaks...
    Cannot feel the first stage..lol
    I'm building my rig for near and far...so to speak...
    ]I'm seriously thinking about trading out to a nice 2 stage

    I just got my 18 5r on
    So I'm gonna do some longer stuff hopefully this weekend and see how I do with the s3g with that
    Let me know how that ends up working out for you when you make it out to shoot. I'm not sure how near "near" is but you have quite a bit of scope on there for close shooting. My experience was with the sd3g is that its a fantastic trigger but that was not ideal for shooting past 50 yards. If I could've made it fit in my B&T APC9 I think it would've been amazing there. (I'm not trying to dump on your build, btw)

    I moved some other parts around and shot mine at 260m the other day and got some good results with sh*t Tula 150gr (because its 45 cents a piece in nearly unlimited stock near me). I think I'm probably going to end up putting a 3-15x ish optic onto this rifle eventually but will use the lpvo with the pinned 13.5 barrel I have now. The 20moa ADM mount+XTRii has like 1.5mm of clearance at the objective lense.

    Snagged one of the 15.5" M-LOK stripped uppers off the LMT store and it just showed up today with a fancy sticker on it. Mocked it up with the 16" 308 barrel I have on hand. Definitely needs a spacer on the muzzle device if you have a QD-attach suppressor and want to do a 16 inch barrel - very tight fit.

    Very nice.

    I was not sure if it would take a 16 inch barrel and run a can.

    Could you take a closer look at the gap between the can and the rail, and also a close up of what mount and rail?

    I am wondering if a a dead air and combo would work here. Part of me would like to cut back my 20 inch 6.5CM barrel to 16 and run this upper.

    Something like my 13.5 308,

    If you’re cutting, I’d just go 16.5. With a 16 you definitely would need a spacer behind the muzzle device. Here it is without one:

    Wow...

    Definitely a tight fit.. It does look really good though, yeah, I think 16.5 would be a good call.

    @jwramp does it come with any M-LOK attachments for a bipod or anything?

    I am having a hard time not picking one of these up...

    Yeah.

    I would like to grab one and have my 20 inch 6.5cm barrel cut back to 16. Would be a sweet little set up

    How tight are the MLK uppers around the gas block? I know the mlr is pretty tight.

    And how much mlock is there on the bottom of the 15.5 upper? Has anyone found a dovetail section that fits in there well?

    It's fairly tight. There's space but it takes some wiggling to get it out if there are mlok sections installed in front of it

    See above post where my AAC muzzle device is recessed inside the rail. You need a good 1/4-3/8 of shims to get it out far enough for that can. Direct thread probably wouldn't be as bad.
    I was just trying to decide if I wanted a 15.5” MPR upper. This is a real bummer to see. Really wish they would’ve made this 15”. Damn
    So the threads started inside the handguard on your 16”?

    Well it was clearly made for a 6.5 system with a longer than 16" barrel, so I wouldn't say it wasn't well thought out. Just not quite matching whatever you have in mind for a build.
    I’d agree with you if the MRP wasn’t a switch barrel platform for which they make the very popular size 16” barrel...

    Considering its a modular system, I am ok with things not being as refined as say a knights. The length may have been derived from a requirement in the socom test that required a 15.5 rail so it is what it is. Fwiw. The standard upper is perfect with the 13.5 barrel

    It was also an easy fix for me to mill off a fraction of an inch from the front and rock on 😎
    Lol. As much as I was really looking forward to the 15.5, I’m not sure it’d be worth trying to find someone to do that for me. Would really bother me to modify a brand new product. I must be weird.
    Yours did turn out nicely. Good job.

    There’s a gunsmith d. Wilson who you can look up who is known for work on LMT and has posted a few handguards he has set back for people
