    AR Carbine builds

    I needed to move guns around to make some space for some new builds.

    I emptied out one of the safes and it had a few of the Carbines with full stocks on them that I put together in the last few months.
    They are all built for under $300, With new, new take off, and like new used parts, most parts are commercial except for a few Colt or FN parts.
    (I plan on swapping out all the Colt or FN parts with commercial parts later.)
    Some are carbine length hand guards and some have the mid length hand guards.
    All are A1 stocks, all are "E" stocks,
    Except for one in the first picture at the bottom.(it is an A1 "D" stock.) It also has a A1 pistol grip on it that I will change out to a A2 PG.
    All have 16" barrels.

    I have found that most people that shoot the carbine with the mid length hand guards and full stock really do like them.
    I am one of those people.

    Here are a couple pictures I took yesterday of a few of them: They are all A2's (Note: a C7 is considered an A2)

    Enjoy!
    Have a nice day!

    WOW! I like that one.
    Thanks for the post and the picture.
    I had not thought about using that color on the furniture on the carbine.

    I should have took a right side pic. This is a slick side upper and the muzzle device is a modified BM59 mb grafted to a turned down diameter bbl.

    Thank You! That was my next question.
    Next question: Did you make it or have it done?

    I had already saved the picture and enlarged the muzzle device.

    Thanks

    I am too. It seems to make for good handling with a solid mount to the shoulder. IMO, the collapsing stock is a compromise and I don't find it as comfortable to shoot. My Rock River LAR-8 has a 16" barrel, mid-length handguards, and an Ace skeleton stock. It's not as short and hand as my M4gery, but given the larger receiver it never would be anyway. It's short enough for most purposes and I definitely shoot better with a "real" stock.

    I love that color. Completely changes the look.
