    LR308 v.3 Aero/Rainier/Troy Build

    This is my 3rd 308 caliber large frame rifle. I've tried to learn from each and incorporate that knowledge. My last AR-10 was an LMT MWS (16" rifle gas cut down from 20") on a Mega MATEN lower. GREAT FREAKING RIFLE! But it was super front-end heavy. To the point of giving my jacked up shoulder issues after a couple of hours of running and gunning. So I knew then my next 308 project was going to be lighter than the MWS.
    I've not been in a rush, slowly acquiring parts here and there and finally got the last pieces in to finish it up about 0330 this morning.

    It weighs in w/ an empty mag at 9.9 lbs (with optic). Quite the difference between this and the weight of my MWS. At 16" it's a maneuverable rifle and should work great in the battle rifle role that I planned for back when I put this project on paper almost a year ago. I wanted a rifle I could run and gun with that delivered a heavier payload than my 5.56 guns. That said, I toyed with SBRing a shorty, but in the end for a variety of reasons decided to go with the 16".
    I should get it to the range this Saturday and will provide some feedback on function and then do a more detailed write up in the custom build thread after I work out any kinks and go over my parts choice and why. Once I get 500-1000 rounds through it and I'm 100% solidified on my setup, I will break out the Aervoe and camo spray the crap out of this thing. I don't mind this look, but it looks exactly like my MWS and I want to do something different with this one.

    Thank you Drew. Iím actually in the process of getting a new barrel. I was experiencing some issues with the early gen 16Ē Rainier Arms Ultra Match barrel and so Rainier is sending me a brand new one that has a different gas length than the one in the pic. Iíll post in the custom build thread (and provide a link to that post in this thread) when I get the new barrel, because that potentially could affect the buffer weight/spring choice I currently have and I would rather post the the final fully functioned checked rifle than post a config that might not work. Plus Iíve already changed some parts out - some due to necessity and others because Iím trying/testing that part out. Plus this is more of a pic thread and I dot want to clutter it up with my build list parts and why I chose specific parts for this 308 build.

    That said, if you want the build list shoot me a PM. However, I do think it would be best to wait until I get the new barrel mounted and a good function test on the rifle to ensure all parts are working well together and working as advertised. Plus Iím still waiting on a couple of other parts I am changing out. Once I get the parts changed and the new barrel mounted I will provide a detailed write up with some really good pics of the build.

    Thanks again for the compliment, I really appreciate it!

    I just wish to say rifle gas on 16Ē barrels for 7.62 is an art. I got lucky with my M110K1 build

    RTT, nice rifle. I just noticed you have the Troy handguard; I just ordered one of their carbon fiber handguards as a first step to emulate what you have here...

    And nice rifle, 03scgt
