This is a discussion on Self build AR, good deal and equip or no?? within the AR Talk forums, part of the Long Gun Talk category; Looking good, I'd stick with the midlength gas system, they all can't be wrong... Here's another option for a bcg, G&R. I have no complaints ...

Here's another option for a bcg, G&R. I have no complaints with mine. Of course, the "high dollar" bcgs look real interesting... YNM and FailZero. A milspec tube and a 50% VLTOR Modstock from BCM is worth consideration...
Good Luck and stay safe

Hrm ... my MIAD came with a roll-pin to semi-permanently attach the rear part of the grip ... maybe this is a new development?

I only got it last month.

That is what I did, a mil-spec BCG (BCM is one of them) will be partially CL. The 9130 steel and shop peening is more important IMHO than a CL BCG, it is your call.

There are advantages to a middy, I am not denying it. I am simply questioning the advantage over the HUGE (IMO) disadvantage of a heavy bbl.

If I where to buy a new upper, I would buy the 14.5 (+perm FH) mid length BCM upper.

Half of my carbines are 14.5, and my work horse 14.5 Bushy is my favorite. It doesn't have all the 'Right' specs, but it is the proverbial sewing machine. It has a mil-spec auto w/ xtra pwr extractor spring BCG, forged CH and upgraded buffer spring. Runs all day long.

First off those are beautiful. I have reconsidered and decided to go with the M4 version kit even though it is a little more expensive. After considering all the pros and cons the hvy bbl is just a HUGE drawback. I have also decided to go haead and order it without the BCG and get one from BCM. They have the BCG (MPI) - Auto for 139.95 In Stock.

Longer barrel = more velocity and accuracy. I guess one has to tailor the weapon to meet his needs. My 18" 1/8 twist 410SS fluted Saber Defense SPR barrel is not heavy or unwieldy by any means, esp with a DD M49.0 FF rail, very accurate if I do my part... here's my 556 fun gun...
good luck with your build.

That is a sweet rifle. You are correct, the longer the bbl the better the accuracy is.

Not true. Longer barrel means more velocity but accuracy is dependent on the quality of the barrel not the length.

Check what bench rest shooters use, short heavy barrels.
