Haven't sighted her in yet. Been busy and have several other M4's, so haven't had a pressing need. I want to run it in the next carbine class I teach, so I'll have to run a few hundred rounds soon.

Recently assembled a lower with parts that were on sale on SOLGW's website. Trying to decide what sort of upper to put together to go with it.

Ran exactly 200 rounds of Federal XM193 today with no issues, all out of PMags.

Shot just over 2MOA, prone unsupported, @ 100yds. Recoil was smooth n' easy.

Geissele trigger is very nice, of course. Smooth take up, then a crisp, light break.

Ran 30 rounds of Hornady TAP 70grn GMX Barrier. Again, no issues, and this load grouped under 2MOA.

Thanks from Snyper762 and 3Gunnah

I don't see why, with the right ammo and a good optic, that this carbine wouldn't shoot well under 1MOA. If I get a chance, I've got a Nightforce ATACR F1 4-16x42mm in a GDI QD mount.......may put them together and see what she'll do.

Thanks from WaM14gunner

Round count so far:

Monday 3/6:
200rds Federal XM193 5.56
30rds Hornady TAP 70grn GMX Barrier 5.56

Tuesday 3/7:
120rds Federal XM193 5.56
150rds PMC Bronze .223

Friday 3/10:
150rds IMI M193 5.56
30rds Tula
30rds Mk262 Mod0 5.56
30rds PSA 77grn SMK
60rds Hornady TAP 70grn GMX Barrier 5.56

The Mk262 Mod0 was shot with a Nightforce ATACR F1 4-16x42mm in a GDI mount. This load shot a best group of .56" at 100yds, with an average for 5 3-shot groups of .68". Keep in mind, this is not an SPR and has a barrel made on the same machinery that makes M249 SAW barrels for the military.

For those of y'all questioning the validity of buying this carbine from Sons Of Liberty Gunworks instead of building it yourself, take a look at their Lifetime Guarantee.

I spoke to Mike (one of the owners of SOLGW) today. He stated that their Lifetime Guarantee covers EVERYTHING. If you wear out the gas rings, extractor, springs, even the BARREL.......ANY part of the gun.......SOLGW will replace the part(s) for free for the lifetime of the gun. Hard to beat and definitely puts the price in perspective.

Thanks from Firedude67

I think people did give you a hard time about not building it yourself. The main reason I was considering it was it would be my first AR. Not to say I am not handy or mechanically inclined but there is something to be said for learning the platform before you start building one. Has anyone here said don't buy a Springfield M1A you should just build one yourself.

Keep us posted on how its running for you.

I've built plenty of AR's over the years, in at least 7 different calibers. Didn't feel like going that route this time around.

Just completed building a lower on an SOLGW "Angry Patriot" receiver, trying to make up my mind on what I want the upper to be.

So far, 800rds in 3 days.......which ain't much......but she's flawless so far.

Damn! I wish I could say the same. That's generally a number I shoot a summer.

Glad to hear she's running well and with a guarantee like that, hard to beat!

Apples to oranges comparison. If you are a little mechanically inclined, understand the concept of "righty tighty", and own a few punches and a vice, you can ASSEMBLE your own AR. No building of anything is actually required. And when somehting does break you will know how to fix it yourself instead of waiting around for parts to be shipped from the company who has a lifetime warranty. I've found that most companies that have those overcharged in the first place. Use quality parts and you will have no issues.

I've got a safe full of AR's and M4's; some I bought and some I built. If anything goes wrong with this new one, I am highly qualified to fix it myself, or I can send it back to builder, have them fix it for free, while I shoot one of my many other M4's.

And SOLGW's warranty covers even routine wear. If I ever shoot out the barrel, they will replace it for FREE. I'm not gonna screw around and pay good money for a barrel that retails for $300 when SOLGW will supply and replace the barrel AT NO CHARGE. I don't see me availing myself of the warranty for small parts like gas rings and springs; I have that stuff figured into my maintenance schedule and will square it away myself as needed. An expensive barrel is another story.

For anyone that is LE or military, contact SOLGW for a 10% discount.
