I'm not sure. The only thing I can think of is that I think Geissele used a slightly longer than mid-length gas system on the 16" barrels. I'm sure an AGB would soften it up even more but I got this one to have something I could leave completely factory that people couldn't give me shit up as a back like if one of my home brews goes down at a class or something lol

ETA: Home brew may weight slightly less but not more than a half a pound
All the cool cats and kittens rock Geissele

Sweet. How do you like it?
I dig it. Shoots great and the trigger is insane. One of the most well balanced guns I own even with the LPVO. Its very accurate with 75g hornady hpbt. Trying to get out to the 850 yard range to run it with some distance.

for the features it comes with I don’t think there are many better values out there and I admittedly spent more than I wanted, but you gotta pay to play.

Yanked the .224 Valkyrie barrel & bolt out of this gun and replaced with a Proof Research 18" CFW 6mm ARC barrel and appropriate bolt. First day out with Hornady 105 BTHP produced sub-MOA groups at 2689 FPS.

Anybody need a nice Bartlein 20" fluted Valkyrie barrel by Craddock Precision and JP Enhanced bolt? Shoots great but this new cartridge has me all lathered up.

Aero Precision upper and lower. Ballistic Advantage barrel. KAC trigger and handguard. Surefire suppressor. Night Force 2.5-10x24
Classy looking and to the point. I like it, looks mint. Shoot well? I've had good luck with BA, some other folks, not so much

Is V7 making barrels in house themselves?

Here’s a money pit 6.5 Gendel I’ve been piecing together for about two years:

-Seekins SBA15 lower, IRMT-T upper, MCSRV2 15” Mlok rail
-20” Proof Research CF barrel
-Griffin Armament Paladin 300, Griffin Armament Ti Minimalist brake, FDE Coletac wrap
-SLR Sentry 8 Ti
-Bushnell LRTS 4.5-18 in a Warne Xskel mount
-JP VMOS heavy, H2 SCS, Ionbond bolt
-Geissele SD-E
-Radian Raptor SD in FDE
-Amend2 Mags cerakoted FDE and Magazine Blocks custom limiter to 5rd for hunting.
-All other plastic is Magpul FDE. UBR is Gen 1.
-Cerakote by Odin’s Workshop. Receivers and handguard are a medium brown (I just call it shit-brown), parts are FDE.

Just gotta get some ammo and see what she’ll do. I bedded the barrel w/Loctite 620, torqued everything with a recently calibrated torque wrench.

I have a second Seekins upper & lower receiver/hanguard set I had cerakoted the same color, at the same time, that will be an 18” .223 Wylde or 6ARC. Kinda waiting to see how the 6ARC teethes in the lighter weight bullets. It will be a dedicated coyote gun. The Grendel above will be a deer gun.

How is the tailhook fitted to this PDW stock? I have the same setup, in monolithic form and wonder how this is done. Also is that firearm considered a Pistol? or SBR LOP looks long for Pistol. Thank you

Nevermind. I see Battle arms makes a monolithic PDW with the tale hook installed. I want to convert mine over, probably no dice.

Pic thread.

20" blaster I put together for an article a while back, maybe 2 years ago while I was checking out a Bergara 20" AR barrel. The receivers and handguard are from AeroPrecision, the BCG is a Brownells nitrided unit, and the LPK was a Stag Arms kit. It shot ok, I think with some more time to figure out what it liked it would've been a solid MOA gun. Slinging 55's it was dead on with the BDC out to 400.
