    Thanks all. Just put it together, heading to the range for shakedown soon.

    ETA - Got out to Elk Neck yesterday for some shooting. 100 yards with m855, from improvised rest, rifle was shooting pretty good. I need to work on my technique a bit. It was great fun at a beautiful facility.

    18" lightweight PSA grendel upper on an aero lower. Still need to swap the gas block for a superlative arms adjustable one and the trigger for a mbt2s that's still in the mail, but getting closer to being done. Would also like a 45'd mrdo, but we'll get there eventually.

    I ended up tossing a mbt2s into that aero lower, but i swapped this ruger lower over to this 6.5 upper because they fit tighter together. There's no wobble whatsoever between them, so that's nice.

    I had feeding issues from PSA with this upper. It wasn't getting enough gas because the factory PSA adjustable gas block leaked badly from the front and back. At first, it was just a straight-pull rifle. I sent it back and PSA said they "adjusted it to factory settings". When I got it back, it cycled hornady and Barnes, but had an occasional hiccup with wolf and was a straight-pull with ppu. Getting it back home, the gas block was still burping gas out the adjustment screw, under the front, and out the back. Screws were all tight.

    I tossed an aero adjustable gas block on and all issues are gone. No more gas leakage and it feeds everything, to include the weak-sauce ppu. The aero block seems to be awesome so far.

    Good news, the thing seems to shoot well. Here's groups from Hornady and Barnes. 3 shot and 5 shot at 100 yds. Still need to cant off a red dot to wrap this thing up.

    Pretty sure you’re gonna be very pleased w/ the performance of the Criterion barrel— very sexy build… enjoy!

    How come no new posts here? Ok - I'll add one. My new Windham Weaponry rifle Heavy Barrel Dissipator. Actually - it's a WW dissi upper that I have had for a long time and I decided to mate it to a WW lower. You can get a stripped WW lowers, so why not? I got a WW lower parts kit and stock. Disappointed in the stock though. It is advertised as having the Windham Weaponry logo but does not. No logo at all, just a generic M4 stock. Emailed WW but got no response. At least all of the parts are of good quality.

    Love the shorties. Gonna have to crank out some form 1’s. I’ve got a bunch of AR’s, but I love the handling of my 10.5 “pistol” the best. Makes my 20” HBAR seem like a musket.

    You say "musket" like it's a bad thing.....

    It kinda is. I haven’t shot my “musket” in like 10 years. I think if I could only have “one” AR it would be a Geiselle urgi 11.5 with a can. Since I don’t have one yet I’ll enjoy my 7.5-20” AR’s.

    One of my most inexpensive ARs, but also one of my favorites. PSA lower & Aero Precision Upper.
