Now what BCG did you end up going with? And was there any reasoning for choosing a 7.5" vs a 10.5"?
Good questions. Brownell’s had a sale on their toolcraft lightweight bcg’s so I went with the TiN finish for the reduced weight and felt recoil. Only negative was some said the extractor gasket needed to be replaced to properly eject brass? Finish was scratching too. We’ll see. That’s a way to test Brownell’s warranty.
I went with the 7.5” because I wanted as small a package as possible. I haven’t read much of anything negative regarding the Ghost uppers and the ceracote options were nice. Price was nice too. I considered the flashcan version but I already have a Troy Claymore muzzle brake to use which diverts all flash forward. Saw some in action and loved it.
You may need to mess with your buffer weights to get that lightweight carrier to run properly if you don't have an adjustable gas block. I've been running two standard Brownells carriers and haven't had any problems with them with pistol or carbine length gas systems. They run dry or wet, but you'll probably want to make sure you run yours wet if you're worried about scratching off the finish.
Good input. I have a DPMS carbine length buffer tube in the mail. This of course is for the carbine length tube that the SBA3 brace comes with. I’ll call Ghost with some of these questions when I get it built. By wet you mean heavily oiled?
Yeah, oil it up. It will reduce friction and help prevent the coating scratching off if you're worried about it.
here is something else to wet your whistle with. bolt action ar pistol. removable mag A ok.
IS that thing called, "the Wrist Breaker?"
I think a good muzzle break is going to be called for.
A nice linear comp.
I've seen that before. Not a fan, personally, but I'll happily build one if it will piss someone off. I'm all for pissing off moonbats whenever possible.
