    Based on all the great reviews of the Hansen profile barrels, I ordered a 14" one from BA during the Black Friday deals for my build. A while back I had put together a pistol lower for my .300 blk SBR with the SBA3 brace, and found it not lacking at all, so have decided to do the .308 up as a pistol.

    I also picked up my first Geissele trigger. It will go in the .308.

    Is AR308 the same as LR308?

    Iíve read post #59 and a few others but not all 230+ so I might have missed the answer to this question: are the charging handles all the same?

    The S&W M&P10 has a different charging handle and if you want to put an aftermarket CH in an M&P10, you have to do some filing. Other than that, no.

    I bought a DPMS bolt catch from Brownells but it didnít come with the spring and plunger. Do I just use a standard AR15 spring and plunger or are those parts AR308-specific as well?

    So I'm working on an AR10 6.5 Creedmoor build and I'm trying to decide on what BCG to buy. I believe all the ones I've seen so far use 9310 instead of C158. I know the mil-spec is C158, and I make sure to always use C158 bolts in my AR15 builds, but it doesn't look like I'll be able to do that for this build. So what are y'alls thoughts on this? What have you used in your .308 or 6.5 build?

    What BCG would you good people recommend to work well with a BA Hanson .308 barrel? I've read great things about the Lantec enhanced BCG, but I've read a few things where the bolt doesn't headspace right sometimes with a BA barrel, but I love the features of the carrier. It's going in an Aero upper.

    Aero Precision is part owner of BA, so you'll get good compatibility, interoperability between BA parts and Aero parts. My preference is for the BA NiBo bolt, only if I can get it on sale at $100. after that, my preference is for the 308 Aero NiBo BCG, again, only if I can get it on sale for about $180. I've also used the 308 Aero nitride BCG with good success. YMMV.

    I'm running an Aero Nitride BCG with a BA Modern Series barrel, and it headspaced properly.

    I need only the BCG and charging handle, and she will be shootable. Not complete mind you, I'll want a light, and an optic before I call her done, but shootable.



    I have run into a snag that kinda has me worried. I got the barrel back from my gunsmith today. (had the Warcomp pin, and welded) Once I got it mounted, I noticed that the rail is slightly off. Somehow I missed that before. It's not quite as tall.




    Now if I have to adjust the front sight up a notch or two, no biggie, but if the receiver isn't machined right... I'll be upset. I won't have anything strattling the receiver, and rail, but the thought of going through figuring out a non-running gun isn't pleasant. It's an Aero Precision receiver, and I did get the correct .210 upper tang MI rail for the DPMS .308 pattern. Anyone had issues like this with either Areo or MI?
