Re: AR Five Seven Barrel Change?

I posted this same question here a couple months ago, for the same issue. I had an 11" upper but didn't have enough thread for my suppressor. I ended up buying a used 12" upper at a decent price here, and just sold my 11". From the replies I got it just seemed like too much hassle to change the barr...

Re: Official NFA Photo Thread

Here is my little 5.7 family.
I just got the HK416 sights, they look good but I think I will be going back to an Aimpoint for the AR57.

Re: PS90 blown to hell

Ouch! Very glad you are ok, and thanks especially for sharing your experience with us. It might save some people from making the same mistake. I know I have been thinking of getting into reloading, and the 5.7 round is one reason for doing it since it is not a cheap round to shoot. I will be watchin...

Re: Stpuid NFA question

Cyberfly - I was just being a tad sarcastic, and hoping that Bones would explain how someone, as a non FFL or SOT holder, can run out and get demo P90's... lol
Because if we could, we all would. :ponder:

Ok, I'm curious. How exactly does a civilian get a demo from the Batfe?

Re: AR57 Pistol Build

The only problem I have with these uppers, is the problem being able to mount an optic and a flip up iron sight together. With the mag needing some room for clearance, and the short rail, even with that smaller than normal Eotech it is hard to get them both on there without the rear sight hanging of...

Re: WTS: Like new AR57 11" SBR/pistol upper

Yes, upper only is for sale. As mentioned above, this can be installed on a pistol lower with no additional paperwork, or an SBR lower with an appropriate form 1 or form 4. There is no NFA transfer involved in buying this or any short barreled AR15 style upper, the lower is the registered firearm. Y...

SPF: Like new AR57 11" SBR/pistol upper

Sold pending funds. Upper is in excellent condition, I put maybe 150 rounds through it with no problems at all. $600 - now $550, comes with upper, semi-auto bolt, buffer, and spring I can send better pics if needed, this was a quick cell phone pic for a buddy. http://members.cox.net/stevenwenk/AR57....

Re: Magazines... buy one get one

Just a heads up, the free mag is an ATI mag. The ATI mag I bought to test does not work at all, the follower binds up and gets stuck constantly. Last time I tried it with a factory FN follower and spring to see if that was the problem and it still did not feed at all. Also the spring in my ATI mag w...

Re: Stpuid NFA question

No, as a civilian you can not buy a P90. But you can, with the correct ATF form and $200, install a short barrel on your PS90 and have virtually the same thing just with that pesky extra little 'S' on the receiver... ;) In a nutshell: 1. Buy PS90 2. Send form 1 (2 copies front and back, fingerprints...

Re: PS90 Magazine Problem

My non-FN mag sucks, I bought one cheap one just to test and it and it binds up constantly. I have never had any problem with the FN mags, odd that you are having issues. Honestly, if the blue tips are breaking off when you are loading the magazine, my guess would be that you are still not loading t...

I never really cared for shrouds on any guns, but I like that. Looks good.

Re: McGowan 28" barrel for the AR-57

Looks very cool.
How hard was it to change the barrel? I have an AR57 upper that I need to change barrels on but I have not had a chance to get too deep into it yet. Any direction would be appreciated!

Re: PS90 barrel break-in?

I agree, I just take em out and shoot em.
I know I read a lot of WTS ads, from people that have 'properly' broken in the barrel. Shoot one round, clean, shoot another round, clean. I am not a gunsmith so I could be wrong, but it seems like a waste of time to me personally.

Re: Tossed the red dot for old school on the AR57

I like it a lot, they look pretty natural on the AR57.

Did you buy those new or used? If you found a good deal for new ones please share, I would pick up a couple sets since I have a couple rifles that need back up irons.

Re: CMMG 5.7x28mm AR Upper at SHOT?

Interesting, pretty cool.
It's great to have more 5.7 options... but 50-round top-feed/bottom-eject is still 5x better IMO.

Re: AR57 barrel change - easy to do?

Thanks for the info, sounds like too much trouble. I guess I will just live with the few dings on the upper I am keeping and sell the pretty one.
