for $150 total, including taxes, so I bought one. Picked it up today after
my waiting period, put enough parts in to get it ready to fire. I used the
same upper I used on my DIY lower. Fired fine, no issues.
A friend was telling me about a guy they shot with that could stiff arm a
semi-auto and pull the gun against his finger and bump fire but without a
bump fire stock. So I tried it, after a few failed attempts I got it to
double, then I got a 3 round burst. Sounds like a machine gun and I can hit
the ground with every shot! :-) I don't think it would be a good way to
hit anything, may be useful for gardening, I can plant seeds in the holes I
shot in the ground.
After I torque the barrel on the M-16 upper it will be ready to test fire.
The 4 raw forgings I ordered in early February finally came in today. I
figure I'll try to machine them with my CNC mill to the 80% point so I can
sell if I want or finish the trigger pocket in the CNC when I decide to. I
wanting to build a 30 cal for the 300blk cartridge, that will probably be my
3rd upper but I hear ammo is hard to get for the 300blk. Maybe I can get
some dies to neck out 223 to 300blk and load my own.
