I'd go with a different barrel and handguard, and in my opinion, that's a very poor choice of optics for that kind of rifle.

Im definately not a guru on these, but i was thinking you can use any mil-spec barrel from any company.
if this is the case maybe you can order from a different company.

I do remember reading about the gas chamber maybe being different on a few different barrel lengths.
either way, sweet build!!!!
I want to see it done!

Can't go wrong with RRA. They're about as good as it gets for the money.
You can get better, but you'll pay for it.

I'm not sold on milspec stuff anyways. You'd be surprised about how much of a croc all that is.
Basically just paying so you can say "ya, it's milspec...."
