Snagged an Anderson lower at the gun show today for $40. Let's build something. Here are my ideas:
>24 inch 6.5 Grendel rifle
>8.5 inch .300BLK pistol with one of those collapsible pistol braces and a fostech AR-II trigger
>lightweight 16inch 5.56 rifle

I already have an 18inch POF 415 and a Century Galil in 5.56 so I'm leaning toward a different caliber. I don't really have a long range gun so 6.5 sounds fun but I also don't live near either of my farms right now so it's hard to justify building the Grendel with nowhere to shoot it. I do already have dies, brass, projectiles and powder for .300BLK and I've also always liked the pdw AR look. The only reason I'm even thinking about a lightweight 5.56 is because my AR and Galil are both pushing 9lbs so something handier would be neat. Let's hear some compelling arguments.

go for a 14.5 lightweight build, pin & weld a comp so you're at 16.1 overall

Nahhh if I do a legal rifle, I'm definitely going for a full 16" to maximize velocity for 5.56. If it's under 16", I'm going .300BLK. Plus pinned 14.5s look like ass

Pistol is an option.

16 inches isn't really maximizing velocity on 5.56, though -- 20 is.

If you want to go full stupid, you might start looking into a .458 SOCOM pistol. It'd be like .50 AE out of a desert eagle but somehow more difficult to use.

Stop it.

I literally said in the OP that I have 2 18in barreled 5.56 rifles already. I don't want or need a 20inch 5.56. If I get a rifle that long, it will be in a caliber that justifies a gun that unwieldy, i.e. 6.5 Grendel.

>6.5 grendel is a meme
Go fuck yourself. You can make it from spent AK brass and it's good to 1000 yards on coyotes so it's more than viable.

>>35198178
I thought about .458 but I feel like .300BLK does most of what .458 does for significantly cheaper (minus barrier penetration which doesn't really apply to me.) Plead your case, I'm listening...

>>35198470
Nahhh I've got a hard on for .338 so if I go full retard, I'll buy a rifle in that.
>>
Do the middle option, but make it an 11.5" barrel and .223

That's what I'm currently doing

>>35198541
>spent AK brass
this is my it's a meme kid

>>35198541
If you're considering Grendel, look into .277 WLV too. It's neat.

Primary arms has started packing shit I order with Anderson Lowers instead of packing peanuts. It's an amazing time to like AR-15's.
