  1. This is the 2nd video I've seen on the Blackout AR15.  My interest is simply the smaller caliber AR15 is illegal to hunt with in my State (minimum is .25).  I noticed in both videos the builder kept the forward assist, I don't plan to and hope that works out.

  2. That's not how to torque a barrow nut people that don't know don't do that go to 35 inch pounds if it doesn't line up just go to the next hole you should never have to go to 80 inch pounds don't. Do that im. Not hating on the guy he just don't know hes probably a rookie

  3. I've been a gun nut for decades, but finally developed an interest in ARs.  I'm currently on the slow build process for a 300 BLK pistol and a 223 carbine.  Fun.

    Even though I don't plan on doing a lot of AR building, I did buy some AR specific tools.  You seemed to do well enough using a 16 ounce framing hammer and a large pair of Channelock pliers, but I bought a 4 ounce brass hammer and a set of roll pin punches from Grace.  Both came from Amazon.  These well built American made tools cost little more than the cheaply made import versions, but I like the way good tools make me feel good, and make the entire job more enjoyable.  I'm building for fun, and doing the job with quality tools specific to the job increases my enjoyment.  I sometimes enjoy doing the most with the least, but not this time for some reason.

    The big holdup on my two AR builds are the 80% lowers.  I've been dragging my feet on milling the last 20%.  Fear of failure?  Delayed gratification?  Knowing that as soon as these two AR projects are built, I'll need to buy the next gun?  Who knows.  Regardless, I'll enjoy watching the videos documenting your AR build.  300 BLK FTW!  I may need to build at least a 300 BLK upper for my AR carbine.

  4. Just curious, whats your total invested in this build? Palmetto seems to be the place for good cheap AR stuff!

    BTW, your wife is a cutie! Lucky man!

  5. FYI – The American Outdoorsman did contact me with his info and his swag is on the way.  Stay tuned for the swag giveaway from February's man can.
