    ZM LR300 upper; Surefire 951 light-- SPF again

    Price drop for the folks on here, if no sell, then on to barfcom...

    Up first is an older ZM Weapons LR300 upper with the nylatron handguard. Older upper but from the previous owner to me there have been less than 200rds through the tube. This upper uses a unique direct gas set up that doesn't blow gas into the upper receiver like all other DI uppers. 1/9 twist, chrome lined, 16". I installed an A2 hider, I swapped the YHM hider it came with awhile back. Now, here's my oops moment. I've had this upper disassembled for quite some time as I had planned on turning a new handguard for it and when I went to put it back together one of the screws got started to get really twisted in there (apparently the handguard needs GPS precision to line up correctly!) so instead of really boogering up the threads I left it out. They are standard machine screws so easy to replace, I'm just too lazy to fix it. Anyway, the handguard isn't going anywhere, it's secured and it doesn't affect the function of the upper in any way. This is the daddy of Para Ordnance's TTR, same design and same parts if you want spares. If you go to my thread under "stocks" titled "new stock ideas" from last summer I posted some detailed pics of the gas system and other parts, I think they're still up. These usually go for a lot more but my oops moment coupled with the fact I really want to order a PDW upper means this little guy needs to go.

    $550 shipped







    Next is a Surefire weaponlight, older M951 model w/ pressure tape switch only, 6v w/ thumbscrew mount. Good, solid weapon light. I've had it for a few years (bought at a gun show in San Antonio) but have been keeping it around for a spare light, most of my stuff is Insight now. It's used and has the usual wear as hopefully seen in the pics but it still works, as seen in the pic.

    I swapped the mount to an ADM throw lever mount and I will of course include the original thumbscrew mount. The ADM throwlever mount is linked here: http://www.americandefensemanufactur...&product_id=43

    $150 shipped





    Lastly (and to get them off of my workbench!) are nine (9) ergo grip, low profile, 5-slot rail covers, black. Brand new. These came off one of their 870 rail systems. I'd like to just send them off in one package to be done with them please. $15 shipped. SPF to Puke

    Shot fine for me, no problems. The claims that it totally ends all powder fouling are a little exaggerated but it does run cleaner in the upper because the gas tube is always capped by the extra long gas key. I don't recall noticing much difference in the recoil, lighter or heavier, but maybe a little more a push than a slap when fired. I wanted to get a ZM for awhile, found this one at a good price but by then my XCR had become my go-to rifle so I don't shoot much of anything else. It's been sitting on the bench ever since the first and only range trip to try it out.

    I have a LR300 but a newer one than pictured and I love it.
    It fires really fast. Faster than a buffer tube gun.

    That's what I found.

    I wonder how hard it would be to SBR down to 10.5"

    Easy, that was part of my big plan, 11.5". 10.5" might need a little tweek on the gas port though.

    Since a standard buffer is not needed I was going to run a standard CAR stock instead of a folding stock. I was going to turn on my lathe a storage tube for cleaning gear or whatever to keep in the tube in place of the buffer.
