    I just wanted to share this little tidbit:

    [​IMG]

    So...this is a DPMS upper, mated with a comple, factory (older 4+ year) Bushmaster lower. BCG is from Joe Bob Outfitters.

    I got the BCG in the mail today. It was so tight, that I had to nearly pry the bolt to make it rotate inside the carrier. After I got it to the forward position, I slid it into the DPMS upper that I purchased @ a very good deal.

    Once it was inserted, I took a Pmag loaded with 19 rounds of Wolf 55gr and dumped them all blindlessly into the night (into a creekbed on my property).

    They all went downrange without a hitch.

    Honestly, I was quite surprised. With as tight as the bolt was, I honestly thought I'd have some malfunction of some sort. However, it didn't happen.

    This is close to my 17th-21st build; it is nearly as cheap as I've gone. I've seen others who preach and preach, (not going to go into what the sermon contained) yet I am successful.

    Is it luck? Who knows? I just wanted to share that even with a few dollars invested, repitious fire can still be acheived. :tongueout:

    Oh...and about BCM -- I reckon there was none, so maybe this didn't happen??? :whistling:

    I can eat lots of popcorn with the ~$350 I've saved. I think I have about $485 in the rifle. That's going to the high-side as far as estimations go. :tongueout:

    The only thing I didn't like is the BCM reference. Bravo Company (a GREAT rifle for the price), who I spend every dollar I can with, is the least expensive of the accepted "top tier" rifles. BCM doesn't deserve to be chided like that. Noveske, however, does.

    DPMS is a four letter word around here, don't you know! :rofl:




    Congrats, always fun to complete a new build.

    I have been in the thick of it before BCM, Novenske, etc. were ever in diapers. :tongueout:

    Yes, they make great stuff, I'm not doubting that.

    I'm gonna run many, many more rounds through this weapon; you can count on that.

    Point being made -- you don't need ~$900+ to make a weapon.

    That being said, this is a truck gun. I don't want anything expensive possibly being stolen.

    LOL, yeah...my Rolex GMT-IIc works just as good as your Timex does -- so what's your point? :tongueout:

    Seriously, though. It does the same thing. Some do it with style and class, some do it without. For this truck gun, I prefer to do it without. :wavey:
