Need advice on 2nd 300BLK SBR Build

Hey guys, I've gotten the bug to build a 2nd 300 BLK SBR. This SBR will become my primary SBR and my original build based on an AAC 9" upper will become my secondary gun (primarily because I kind of hate the billet lower I used in that build). One impetus for this is that I think that we will see ch...

Re: Rig Mounted Y Sling. Thoughts?

I'll throw my .02 into the ring as well. This sling looks like a solution in search of a problem. I'm personally not a big fan of single point slings. I find that they have a lot of limitations compared to two point slings and all of the instructors I've had have actually made a point of showing dif...

Re: Can't justify 300 BO

If all you want to do is plink targets then it's hard to see why you wouldn't just stick with 5.56 or even 7.62x39 since the ammo is cheap. I view my 300 BLK setup as my SHTF rifle. It has way more muzzle energy and probably stopping power than a 5.56 cartridge, has all of the ergos of an M4 and I c...

Re: Is AAC no longer making the 9" upper?

I asked a similar question a few months ago as I am in the market for a 2nd 9" AAC Upper. I was similarly told that they have moved to a new facility and needed to re-start production as they have been out of stock on the 9" upper for quite a while now. What I know for sure is that the first thousan...

Re: Drop in Triggers

I would also recommend a good single stage trigger with about 3.5-4.5 lb of trigger pull for a 300BLK carbine. I put a 2 stage Giessele in mine and the 2 stage is more suited to shooting on the bench than shooting and moving in my opinion. Plenty disagree with me as lots of guys run the 2 stage trig...

Re: 300 Blackout Subsonic accuracy a joke???

I think people have to be realistic in comparing accuracy when shooting paper targets to accuracy needed for combat effectiveness which for any combat oriented cartridge is the true benchmark for accuracy. 6 MOA at 100 yards would be considered operationally effective by the military community who w...

Re: AAC 9" upper - new generation coming soon?

Yeah I am looking to buy a 2nd 9" AAC Upper as I've been pretty happy with mine (although lately I've been having a FTF on 1st round with a certain type of magazine and haven't had time to troubleshoot it). As long as production will resume I will sit tight. It would be nice if they upgraded the rai...

Re: AAC 9" upper - new generation coming soon?

If AAC moves solely to suppressors after getting bought out it is a huge blow to the cartridge being more widely adopted.

This stinks!

Re: AAC 9" upper - new generation coming soon?

All that's known for sure is that AAC stopped producing complete MPW rifles. So it's the AAC stamped lowers that will start disappearing. The uppers are still included in their 2015 product catalog, with the 9" model being the most scarce. Highly doubtful a new lineup of uppers will be produced. I ...

Re: AAC 9" upper - new generation coming soon?

KAC newest rails are based on key mod and are basically universal and much lighter but the shortest one is 10" http://shop.knightarmco.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=KM30740 KAC has an 8.5" URX4. FWIW, I have guns with both the 3.1 and 4 series of URX rails and I like them both. The URX 3.1 is n...
