This .300 Blackout pistol is I believe my best effort yet. It's more than just a really nice custom, built with the finest components available anywhere. Being a pistol, it can ride around, in all Free States, right next to you. It is one heck of a lot of horsepower in a compact package. With Barnes 110 grain TTSX marching out the muzzle at 2240 fps, it tops anything else in this size range.

The parts: SanTan STT-15L billet receiver set; V Seven 10.25" SS barrel and gas block, coated Black, with the only .30 caliber feed ramp barrel extension in the world (All the rest of the .300 BLK barrels out there of which I am aware have too-small .223 feed ramps.); Geissele Mk 14 9.5" rail with VZ G10 rail panels and hand stop; Surefire 7.62 WarComp; Geissele charging handle; JP FMOS bolt carrier group; LAW tactical folder; Geared Works Mod 2 pistol brace; Geissele Super 42/H1 recoil system; TriggerTech 3.5 LB Competition trigger; V7 small parts; Aimpoint T-2 in Aimpoint 1.535" mount. The LAW folder adds folding capability, obviously, plus 10.5 ounces, bringing the weight of the bare gun up to a still handy 6 LB 9 OZ.

My SR15 upper seems to love 62gr ammo. I shot my first sub-moa group with it on that target to the right- .830". The other groups were shot while walking in my zero but are around 1.1-1.2". Groups were shot at 100yds using support.

I'm really impressed with the Winchester 62gr OTM that was made in Sweden. It out shoots Magtech 77gr in my rifle.

At the 2020 SHOT Show, Battle Arms Development introduced their new "Monolithic PDW Lower Receiver + VERT® Pistol Brace with Tailhook MOD1". I finally was able to lay my hands on this creation, and I really like it. (More ordered!) This may just be the ultimate "pistol" lower receiver. The Tailhook Mod 1 found here works much better than the slightly-too-short BAD PDW stock for me. This lower costs a tad more, sure, than the standard PDW version, but you save the $200 transfer fee on an SBR. Besides, this is a "pistol", and you can carry it legally in a Free State as you would any other pistol. Let's take a look at some of the components that went into this build. Note right away the V Seven fluted 10.25" .300 Blackout SS barrel, coated Black, tucked away inside the BAD 9.5" "RigidRail" forend. With a SF WarComp out front, it is ready for either suppressed or unsuppressed applications. The bolt carrier group is the JP FMOS with DLC coated bolt, well known to be one of the very finest. The trigger is my current favorite, the TriggerTech Adaptable Flat Trigger, adjustable from 2.0 to 5.0 LB. There's a set of BAD push pins plus their proprietary billet bolt catch found here, as well as titanium V Seven ambi safety, mag release, and fire control pins, plus aluminum ejection port cover and pivot rod. The recoil system is BAD's proprietary set up for the PDW lower, with a special recoil spring for handling the .300 Blackout cartridge. The charging handle is the Geissele SCH Airbrne, in keeping with the weapon's ambi theme. A Magpul Pmag especially engineered for the .300 BLK cartridge is stuffed in the mag well. My favorite RDS is on top, the Aimpoint T-2, here shown with an Aimpoint 39mm throw lever mount. Just a few ounces over five pounds with the Aimpoint.

Just finished assembling a "bump in the night build". Would have been done a while ago but had to swap in a different handguard, barrel, & stock to lighten it up a bit so it's easier for my wife to use should the need arise. As you see it now it's 5 1/2 lbs according to the bathroom scale.

Still needs a sling (will be a Proctor sling), light (still debating what to put on it...feel free to make suggestions), and I need to set a few $ aside for an MRO green dot, but as it is, should be fully functional (wonder if the ranges are open, yet...)

Build list:
Rainier Arms Flash Hider
Midwest Industries CRLW 15 inch Handguard
Sionics Lightweight Chrome Lined Barrel
V7 Titanium Ionbond .625 Gas Block
Samson HK Style Front Sight
Bootleg Mid-length Nitrided Gas Tube
Aero Precision M4E1 Upper
Strike Industries Dust Cover
RRA Stand Alone Rear Sight
Forward Controls Titanium Ionbond Forward Assist
POF Strike Eagle Charging Handle
Daniel Defense Chrome BCG
Lantac A1 Carbon Fiber Stock
White Oak Armament Rifle Buffer Tube
Damage Industries Chrome Silicon Buffer Spring
223 Handguard Rifle Buffer
Hexmag Grip
Radian Talon Ambi 45° Safety
Velocity Steel Case Trigger
KNS Trigger/Hammer Anti Walk/Rotation Pins
PWS Ambi Lower
V7 Titanium Ionbond Mag Catch
JP Enterprises Microfit Takedown/Pivot Pins

11,5" barrel, 2-7 Redfield optics, Hogue stock&grip, CMC trigger. Basically a 60 shot flashbang.

The only thing on my wish list for this setup is an upper receiver without a forward assist. Being a lefty, racking can be a bit annoying.

Alex, how do you like the Khales Glass for .223/5.56?
As a someone who used S&B exclusively in a peace and not so peaceful times and this is my first K I can say it is really really good. For AR is exceptional ..... Enough FoV (I don't said plenty I said more than enough ), optically nice, easy of getting npoa great, mechanical precise and clicks are tactile and dense perfectly . Since that I'm not a magnification whore and I dealt with respectable distances with much larger caliber always dancing in the range of 12-18x this one works well. Will try it on 6.5 Victrix armament as well. For this particular rifle as a low mid range platform that's it (not selling a kidney for TT)..... maybe I like it even more than S&B of the same range ...... SKMR3 works very well as a reticle .....One opton as well ..... cranck ilumination to max during the daytame and use it as at low magnification (3-5) as a main scope. Triangle makes nice more than reasonable -aiming tool

Those are Griffin Armament FailSafe sights. I've had them for years and at the moment the only set of offset irons that I have that play nice with the MUR receiver. I like the looks of the UltraDyne sights but I'm not willing to take the chance on them and then have them not fit.

I also have a Vltor MUR, what makes some work and some sights not? I assume the forward assist?

The size and slope of the forward assist doesn't play well with some designs that have a protruding windage knob. I tried to run my usual Magpul Pro Offsets on it but there was a section of the sight near the windage knob that interfered. The scope is so big though that it cuts the FOV considerably when using the offsets so I'm considering going to a piggy backed red dot.

Thanks.
Im going 15” and 16” barrel.
May regret it at some point, but I think it will look good.

I like the SPR look best of all ARs. The MK12 mod0 got me going and is still my favorite look.

I have two set ups with 15" handguards on 16" barrels but neither one is really a precision build. My recce and spr both run 13's because i can actually reach shit and I'm able to attach my magnetospeed sporter. Funny thing is that on my 15's the only thing i run at the end are the irons.

Swapped from 22 Nosler to 223 on this gun. First ten rounds were pretty good. Maybe get out Friday and see how it does from 2-600. CEE6BF38-58A0-4C2D-9DA6-27049C41FCE1.jpeg

As light as you can go - 5.75 pounds - and still shoot to 1000 yards???

Here we have a Proof Research CFW 18" 6.5 Grendel barrel living inside a Battle Arms Development (aka BAD) 556-LW billet receiver set and 13.7" RigidRail, both done up in Tungsten Cerakote. An SLR adjustable gas block, V7 titanium Furion brake, V7 titanium trap door, Geissele Super Charging Handle, JP FMOS bolt carrier group complete the upper receiver.

The lower receiver has a VZ G10 grip, Vltor A5 recoil system and TriggerTech 3.5 LB competition trigger, and, as you can plainly see, one of everything V7 offers in raw titanium. The Ti bolt release is, however, also from BAD.

This one is sold, but I do have another barrel ....IMG_8856.jpegIMG_8857.jpegIMG_8859.jpegIMG_8860.jpegIMG_8861.jpegMSTN logo-lg.jpg
