    GAU-5A Air Force clone and review

    I finished my GAU-5A clone.
    PSA lower
    Aero upper
    Daniel Defense CHF CL barrel 11.5 .69 port
    Tool craft NB BCG
    Cry havoc barrel extension
    Colt internals
    Black river tactical comp
    LaRue trigger MBT
    FAB defense grip
    Magpul pro sights
    Sba3 brace

    Ammo used

    Federal 223T3 62gn bonded
    Federal Mk318 Mod 0 barrier 62gn
    Federal SP1 SP 62gn (Gold Dot)

    I shot for groups at 50 yards open sights. About 1 1/2 inches or so with all ammo. My eyes aren’t the best.
    The pistol was reliable and all brass landed about 4 o’clock. This is a very cool little truck type of gun. You can put the barrel on and be ready for action in about 3 seconds. 2 latches is all you have to push together. I took the barrel off a few times and put it back on and it returned to original zero.

    I like it.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    That is a nice looking pistol. 1.5 inches is pretty good with iron sights!

    Thank you very much. I am 53 and my eyes aren't as good as before. It is a very cool weapon. Going to be my bug out/truck gun

    Very cool. You should have posted it in the "Custom Build" forum. I have also built a GAU-5A inspired pistol that I've been meaning post. We used some of the same or similar components. Nice shooting.
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.

    I thought you meant this version (bottom rifle). Nice build!

    Damn. I hadn’t seen the QRB system.

    This thread just cost me several hundred bucks.

    Can anyone with experience speak to repeatability of zero after removing and reinstalling the barrel? And would mounting the optic on the handguard make a difference as opposed to on the upper receiver?
