pretty cool. i'm looking to buy or build an AR-15 as my next purchase. probably Rock River complete, if Scheel's gets the ok to start carrying them.
Thanks! I get nice deals on gun stuff so it didn't cost me too much. DPMS guns are pretty reasonable in general. I've seen basically the same gun go for ~$750 on Gunbroker and I didn't pay too much less than that.dave_in_delaware said:That's a sweet AR-15!!! I'm jealous! Is that a 20" barrel?? May I ask what that setup (rifle only) cost you?
They can be found lots of places. I bought mine from here - they have lots of other options for AR-15 grips. The Hogue was about the cheapest though, and some internet research showed that most people really like it.bryan.tonya said:Hey polymer, where did you get your hogue grip from?
A light on a varmint rifle.........?dave_in_delaware said:I'm looking into a quad type rail for mounting a bipod and light eventually.
No, no grip cap. You can pick up a generic grip cap and I'll bet it would work. There is a hole in the bottom just like the standard grip.Does this hogue have a cap in the bottom or just hollow?
Simple, Dave. I shoot this thing off rest bags or metal rests with bags on them. Why would I want a stinking Picatinny rail hanging up as I adjust for windage/elevation? And what the heck am I going to attach to my handguard that I can use to shoot prarie dogs with? I'm not going to light them up with a laser or tac light, lol. My gas block has a Picatinny rail up top in case I ever need to put a front sight on it.Why do all the varmint rifles have that FUGLY free-float smooth round tube type handguard?
VERY nice - looks very similar to mine. Yeah, I got the 6.5-20x 50mm AO scope. I dig it. What bipod is that? I'd like to add on ebefore I go after coyotes, but I can't decide what Harris height I want. I'm thinking 9"-13" since I'll be shooting prone mostly.Here's my RRA 20" Varmint.......
Polymerhead said:No problem Dave. When you use trigger words like fugly I feel like I have to defend my purchase. If I was putting together a CQB rifle, I would want plenty of Picatinny attachment points. This definitely isn't one of those types of guns though.
And for those interested in the Hogue grip, here's a detail shot with the grip and a 20-round AR-Stoner mag.
