Here is mine. It has a JP capture spring kit, brake, enhanced BCG, and adjustable gas block. Bolt rifle accurate.



I guess ours will be cousins. I just picked one up from a member here on the hide and have the jp silent buffer, brake, and bcg on the way as well. The gun is fde 6mm Creedmoor.

My new to me gap10 in 6mm Creedmoor. Has a Hensoldt ssg-p on top for the moment which is a really cool optic. Unfortunately it's not mine so it will go back to its owner after the optics I have all get back to me.

Triad. Just search sniper skid plate. It more of a comfort to my hand deal but does keep the gun from sliding around as much when shooting off barricades or whatnot.

I know mine with a 23" barrel is perry heavy but it's well balanced. I'd say mine is around 14-15lbs with an optic on top but I'll get an exact weight later..

Just an FYI for anyone ordering one. Make sure it had an adjustable gas block. My 6mm Creedmoor was so overgassed it broke the bolt catch completely off. It also had the recoil of a dang bolt 300 win mag with a brake on it. Now with the pri adjustable gas block, jp silent captured buffer and low mass bcg it's such a smooth shooting gun with almost zero recoil and absolutely zero cycling issues.

GAP 10 18" .308
-SSA-E Trigger
-Noveske Switch-block
-Badger Thruster brake
-LaRue CTR/RISR Combo
-Ergo OBR AR10 Ambidextrous SureGrip from LaRue
- JP Silent Capture Spring
-Harris BRMS
-LaRue OSS Sling
-IWC QD End Plate (A must have to use the OSS)
-LaRue SPR 1.5 Mount
-Steiner Military 3-12x50 Optic

The rifle and scope where sent to GA Precision to be coated in FDE. Side note, you can have your dust cover coated FDE if you ask.







After 150 rounds for break-in/playing, we decided it was time to do some load development. This is what we got.
Lake City brass
178 AMAX
44.2 gr Varget
Wolf KVB7 Primer
OAL 2.190

We achieved a 3 shot group of 0.247 @ 100yds. Now it is time to load up more of that exact load and see if it keeps producing 1/4 MOA groups.

Was out at Sniper Country this weekend with Deliberate Dynamics and we were running a precision rifle course as well as a train up for SAC teams. Got a ton of trigger time and was really able to dial in the dope for my .308 18" GAP-10 running the Copper Creek 175 smk Gas Gun Loads. After confirming the zero on the 10" swinger at 1000 yards we started to toy with some longer ranges. I'm getting 2555 fps according to the magneto speed, temps were in the mid 80's to low 90's at 4600 feet and Sunday morning we had virtually dead calm wind so it seemed the right time to reach out a bit so after 3 hits at 1100 I took 4 shots at 1200 yards. The first shot was just over the left shoulder, the second shot was a hit though I'm not sure where as no one was on the spotting scope yet. Chris Wilson (half of the 2012 SAC winning team) heard the 1200 hit and jumped on the scope for shot 3, which missed left due to a slight wind gust and then called the hit on shot 4 which was dead nuts center, exactly was where I was holding. I was dialed 14.4 mils elevation.

Not so bad for a pokey little .308 gas gun.

Does anyone have an answer to this question? I, also, like the old hand guards. Mine will be done by the end of February. I might give GA a call and ask them to use the old one for mine.

Willcy, can you post pictures of the whole hand guards or rifle when you get the chance? This is the first time I heard GA using new hand guards and would like to see it.

Jackripper, I'll take another photo when I get to pick up the gun. I just snapped a quick photo as I left. I get to pick up on 9/7/14. I hate this 10 day waiting period. I suppose I can give them a call later today as ask to see why they used this new hand guard... They should update the photo on their website! Hopefully it's just something that can be removed, but I doubt it... I knew it looked different when I saw it yesterday.

Pretty sure old hand guards are gone. George posted this a year ago. Basically exhausting that inventory then every one will be with updated guards.

Yeah I found that post, but the photos were no longer viewable. I was hoping for the original hand guard :/ still a badass rifle though!

When my GAP-10 was sitting at the FFL for 10 days, I took home the completed upper and the case.

The shop says they don't have room for all of that stuff, just the important parts with the serial numbers.

10 days later I walked out with a complete lower.

Ken@GA also told me that it was not possible to obtain the older hand guards.

I should have my second GAP-10 coming in a few more months. If anyone out there is open to swapping their older rifle length (14"), FDE cerakoted handguard for new version (also rifle length, FDE), please PM me. The new look doesn't bother me but I'd rather have two matching GAP-10s.

How tight is the upper and lower fit? Mine is super uber tight that I have to apply a good amount of force to close and separate.

If someone with a new style hand guard in FDE wants an old style hand guard, I'm down for an even trade. The photos of mine are on page 17 of this thread.
