Has anyone here ever owned or fired the diplomat? I was contemplating building one for my first ever SBR. Just wondering if it's a waste of time or not. I have a 14.5'' middy BCM custom build, but the thought of an AR that tiny is awesome. If not, I'm building a 308 Leonidas Clone. The Diplomat. 7.5'' 1:7 twist med con barrel. Leonidas. 12.5'' .308 CQB weapon Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
