    My Spikes Tactical upper came in...

    so I'll be passing on the Troy M7A1. Tom over at Spike's built this 9.25" upper for me. I originally wanted one of his 10.5" upper with a DD rail system but he convinced me to try something different. It's only about 1/2" longer than the Troy upper and it's got 1.75" more barrel. I'll get to shoot it next week hopefully. This thing really is good looking in person. It's very light and solid feeling. I'm going to have to get some tan furniture now.

    Spike's builds some quality stuff.

    Nice, very nice. I flew down there to visit them when I picked up my 22 upper and they are a super nice bunch of guys. They make some quality stuff, when I was down there they had just received a lower with the new Pirate markings, I wanted to buy one but they only had a few of them back from the machinist and couldn't let them go.
    Don't confuse enthusiasm for competence

    They're definitely a good group of guys Aziator. It's similar to dealing with Rob Arms cause you get to talk to the folks behind the magic.

    Magik, it took a couple of weeks. But I don't think that's the normal time. This was kind of an inside job.

    Here's another one of their builds. Got it a couple of months ago. I don't remember if I posted it. It's called the Brown Gun. It's just under six pounds. 14.5" pinned chrome lined 1:7 barrel. DD rail. It's made for all day carbine training. Light weight and sturdy.









    Are you aware that they joined forces with Adams Arms and Daniel Defense. Now they're building piston guns.

    I got a Spikes lower. Am putting an Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel upper on it. Just got the upper a few days ago. Yes, Spikes makes some nice stuff....the finish on that lower is superb.

    that's a great looking rifle too prizm. I'm gonna take note of those specs and parts. I want a 14.5 pinned upper for a lightweight 5.56 build, and I figure if I use one of my cavarms receivers I can still have an aimpoint t1 and still be at a nice and light 6 pounds but still have a full featured rifle...

    Magik- PM me if you have any questions about some of the other specs. This gun was purpose built for my needs. Tom did a great job on it.
