Q&A:

class93409 asked What are the benefits for each in choosing a stripped or full upper receiver for an AR-15?

I recently purchased an AR-15. I am in the military and know my way around guns but am in no way an expert. The AR I have has an integrated carrying handle and I would much rather prefer a picatinny system for mounting optics. What are the pros and cons to using a stripped upper receiver versus a complete full length upper receiver? Just looking to hear some opinions.

And got the following answer:

I agree with risonav. At times, buying a stripped upper will save you money. Although, you will need to spend money in buying the necessary tools to put the whole upper together. Vice block, armorer’s wrench, vice, torque wrench, etc. Plus the tools to check the head-space once the barrel is on. Although, once purchased, these tools will continue to be used as you make assemble many more uppers, so they can be considered a one time expense 😉 The cons are the time expense, tool expense, and having to check head-space on the upper. Assembled uppers already have all of this done, but for about $100 extra, more or less. Note, that money figure is excluding the tool expense, because you might have some of those already. Also, checking head-space is not difficult, just takes a little time. By the way, thank you for your service!!
Amended: Assembling an M4 carbine upper from parts from Bravo Company Manufacturing will only save you a few bucks (maybe around $30). Their complete uppers are top notch (equivalent to Colt and such) and start at around $430 minus handguards and CH, BCG. You’ll save more money if you’re building a more “exotic” upper with a lo-pro gas block and free float rail, since you subtract the initial cost of the delta ring assembly and A2 front sight base.

jacksmama asked How can you minimize damage to the tip of the bullet when chambering a round in and AR-15?

Have you noticed that when you chamber a round in an AR-15 and the tip of the bullet comes into contact with the guide at the back of the barrel, that the tip is bent or scraped. This is especially so with hollow points…8 times out of 10 the hole is crushed and I assume that affects accuracy and effectiveness of the bullet. Anyone have any ideas?

And got the following answer:

Interesting question I wondered on it many times in the past. Truth is that it doesn’t actually effect the flight path of the bullet enough to matter. To understand this first you need to look at the distance of the target u are shooting at. Most AR’s are accurate out to 300 to 400 meters depending on size of length and width of barrel and weather you are using iron sights or optics. If you are using optics u could increase the range to 600 meters depending on which optic you choose to apply. However it is strongly discouraged to hit a target with a 5.56/223 round out past 300 meters, since you lose most of your punch after 300 meters. At 300 meters though the scrap of the side of the jacket Is not enough to effect the flight path of the bullet. If the bullet doesn’t seem to be hitting the target at the range go back to BRM and try again. If the bullet is still missing re zero your AR at 25 meters.
Hallow point bullets in an AR15 is a bad idea. There simply not needed with the way the round was designed. I would strongly advise not shooting them throw your rifle along with a couple other brands of ammo. To explain further, the plastic tip was simple never designed to feed in to the starfish on your barrel.
There are two things u can do to reduce the chance on chafing and scratching to the bullet during the feeding cycle. Lubrication, like all good things in life lubrication is the key to success. AR’s are extremely sensitive to environment. In most of US climate they should have a good coat of CLP or other lubricant applied to moving parts. This includes the starfish and mag spring. Note it should not be dripping. This will ensure better feeding. Second you need to look at the type of mag you are using. Plastic mags tend to have stiffer springs which while feeding will cause the bullet to drag and sometimes may not feed. There are ways to fix these springs or simply replace the spring. I would recommend a good thing pot metal mag. Be gentle with it though they can were out fast with abuse.

matt asked What is the best scope for hog hunting?

What is the best scope to mount on my AR-15 for hog hunting but that’s kinda cheap and gonna reach out at 20 to 200 yards. Im looking at Leupold, Nikon, and Trijicon. I need the reticle to be red. Needs to be under $500.

And got the following answer:

So, making the reticle red more or less means you need to get into something illuminated. So, that largely moves you out of some of the good lower cost Nikon options.

Which is too bad – a fixed power 3 x 32 (P-223) with a Bullet Drop compensator sounds like a perfect lower cost option for you. I’ve got one of the 1 – 4×24 M-223 with a point blank reticle on it that I like pretty well.

Both Leupold and Trijicon make excellent optics which will do what you want … but not for less than $500.

I’ve actually been pretty impressed with Leapers optics when I am worried about budget. Here’s a nice example:
http://www.leapers.com/prod_detail.php?mitem=optic&level1=Reticle/Illumination&level2=Mil-dot&itemno=SCP-U432AOW&status=&mtrack=3m4

Again, fixed power, Range Estimating reticle, AO for changing parallax to do deal with both the close and long shots and they have a version you can get illuminated so you can have the red reticle if you like.

I’d probably take a look there at least to get a base price and better define the spec you want and then look around. Hawke may be another in the budget range worth looking at, and then as a company probably on par with Nikon or at least between Leapers and Nikon might be Konus.

Raoul asked How to add a rifle scope to an AR 15 with iron sights?

I have an Ar 15 with front iron sights and flip down rear iron sights. Problem is when I put optics on it lines straigh up with the irons making them useless not to mention in the way. Is there any way around this while maintaining accuracy

And got the following answer:

It depends on your rifle scope. You will most likely be limited to an optic that is 4 power or greater (the front sight will blur out), the Marine Corps specifically uses an ACOG 4x on theirs and I have no trouble hitting things out to 500 yards with it mounted and the front sight post in the way. Another option is a true 1x optic like EoTech, Aimpoint, or something else that will co-witness with the front sight or 1/3 co-witness. That would put the red dot on top of your front sight tip or it would put it low enough in the reticel that it wouldn’t be in the way, but would still be usable if your battery dies and you need to flip up the rear sight. Personally I normally buy without a fixed front sight post but for a short range (0-200) fighting carbine with a RDS, a fixed front sight can actually be the way to go for a few reasons.

You didn’t mention what optic you are trying or what mount you are trying it in so it is difficult to give more specific and helpful information than the general statements above, hope that helps.

majpopo asked What is the best and most reliable online Military Surplus Store?

Looking for mostly camping equipment, military equipment, AR-15 magazines, and other “survival” type gear.

And got the following answer:

I do business with two and have been pleased with both:

For magazines, ammo and more hardcore military stuff:

For more general stuff like camping, footware and optics

www.sportsmansguide.com

These are great catalogs to keep in the “library” at home

CJ L asked What is the best scope for the AR-15 as far as “bang for the buck”?

I am in the market for a scope for my bushmaster AR-15. I would like to get some feed back from people who have used the weapon with various optics. Money is not a huge issue, but no one wants to get duped.
I would like to have a scope with quick acquisition abilities as well as long distance accuracy, and bright clear and crisp cross hairs.

Thank you to all who respond

And got the following answer:

I’ve been using a Tasco World Class 3-9x40mm scope. It’s good enough to hit soda cans at 300 yards.

A better scope, such as a Leupold with up to 16x magnification makes seeing distant targets easier.

Since you wrote that money is not a huge issue, then I suggest trying Leupold brand scopes. If money becomes an issue, I suggest Bushnell brand scopes.

SaxWalrus asked What do the letters and numbers on the top of my Ar-15 mean?

On the rail of my Del-Ton AR-15 assault rifle, there are white letters and numbers that say T4, T6, T8, T10, and T12. What are they there for?

And got the following answer:

They are there so you can put accessories/optics back in the same spot each time you remove them.
