Re: 5.56 barrel

I've got a Douglas airgauged that is really nice.

The funny thing is that I "cheaped out" on the Douglas, didn't want to pay for another Kreiger. But between the 'smith working it and the barrel, I lucked out.

I thought the Kreiger was accurate at 1/3 MOA, but the danged Douglas is just as good.... comparing apples to oranges, but it's just as good.

Re: 5.56 barrel

Bought a LaRue Tactical Stealth 18" upper last week. Those guys are AAA-one,called in order 9:30AM Tuesday, they said it would be 4 or 5 days delivery since I live in Texas. UPS showed up next day 4:30PM with the upper! Right out of the box placed 2 shots lower right hand corner of target,both touching each other. Made a scope adjustment, placed 2 shots right under bulleye,1/4" from each other. Made 3rd adjustment, started shooting out 1 inch bullseye, 5 round jagged hole no fliers! Repeated 5 round, jagged hole in bullseye, no fliers, 3 more times before it got dark! So far it is the most accurate firearm I have ever owned.

Re: 5.56 barrel

Got a RRA Predator Pursuit 20" Heave Match barrel upper coming, will be here Tuesday. Ordered it 7 weeks ago, 2 thumbs down for RRA, must have been on a slow boat from China? From what I'm reading I should get some accuracy from this rig. THIS ACCURACY SHIT IS ABOUT TO EAT ME ALIVE, LOOKING AT A NOVESKE 16.1 RECON UPPER NOW!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 5.56 barrel

What did the smith do to your barrel?
Custom contoured the blank, chambered it, mated it up with everything required, and did all the accurcy work. It was a "here is a stripped upper and lower, along with a baggie of assorted small parts" type thing. He supplied 90% of the stick, and sent back a real winner.
