    Finally finished my Varmint AR!

    Its a bit pieced together but turned out to be (IMO) a sweet rifle.

    (Excuse the ladder rails and AFG... They came off a different rifle and are just being used for the time being)

    - AR 57 lower
    - Colt upper
    - 20" Krieger varmint barrel
    - Parallax tactical 15" rail
    - Magpul fixed CTR stock
    - Magpul MOE grip
    - Standard LPK - will be getting a match trigger asap. So far putting down sub MOA groups with little effort.
    - Pride Fowler 3-9x42 optic - first focal plane, BDC out to 600

    Fully loaded it weighs in at 10lbs 12oz

    Nice build! I like the AFG anti-pivoting device.

    lol It actually doesn't hinder it from pivoting at all

    That'll be fun for ringing steel at the range if your not shooting critters.

    Caliber? Sorry, had to ask. Chamber, twist rate of rifling & fodder to be fed out of it? Factory ammo or hand loads?

    Be well.

    No worries. It's .223, 1/10 twist (I think. I'll have to double check). I have been shooting hornady 55gr steel match through it with great success. I want to get into reloading sometime soon.
