Unless you're in N. Kansas City, MO, you'll be building yourself an AR10 if you use Armalite gear, or a Large-frame AR if you use other receivers. A GAP-10 is built by GA Precision and I doubt they would appreciate anyone else building a rifle with the same name. I don't know if they have trademarked the name, yet, but they have trademarked other names in their rifle line.
I am sure they wouldn't mind if I build one and call it a GAP-10, I am special like that.

Ok, not really as far as being special, but I do work at GA. If you get a rifle with a proof mark that looks like a mitten (or a mil replica ordered since I started), I built it. The proof mark was supposed to look like a boxing glove, but it came out looking more like a mitten.

Well I guess that puts you in the N. Kansas City, MO disclaimer.
I was wondering what this symbol was:

That is Adam's stamp. When I do get around to making a GAP-10 I probably will have him spin up the barrel as well. He basically is the GAP-10 section of GA. I can do it fine, but he will do if faster and probably better as he does them all and knows all the right speed/feed rates to avoid chatter in contouring, etc. Outside of the mil replicas (because the real ones don't have them) all the GA guns have a makers stamp on the barrel and in the barrel channel of the stock for bolt guns.

Well make sure he knows he spun a good one on this rifle. He is probably still cursing my existence for the 11/16-24 threads on the muzzle and collar on the barrel for the Ops Inc can.

I can't wait to show off my GAP-10 and upload pics of it on this thread. That is as soon as I find one for sale. Seems like everyone is holding onto their GAP-10 as I have not seen any posted for sale on this sight at all. Anyone got one for sale?

Thx

I actually remember your barrel (unless it was someone else with the same set up I guess). Man, he was cursing you up one side and down the other for weeks.

Ok, I kid. We actually like when there is something different most of the time. Though I am serious about remembering the barrel part, but that was from just talking about the set up as far as turning it.

I honestly am not just saying this because I work at GA, but with the wait time being as low as it is right now for GAP-10's and with the price they usually go for when sold second hand, it may just be a better idea to get a new one and exactly as you want it.

I am aware you need to take my answer with a grain of salt since I work there, but that really would be my advice rather I did or not. Of course it is possible to find a screaming deal on one in the chamber and twist rate you want, with the parts and colors you want, etc; but you may be waiting a long while for that.

Thanks Mitten. I was actually considering calling them on Friday. Can you tell me what the wait time is currently on a new gap 10? You can just pm it to me if you like.

Thx

From their Facebook page back in July, 2 months. What it is now, I don't know but it took mine 9 months .... worth every minute. The tune on the Geissele SSA-E is AMAZING and it is a hammer with 140SMKs, 140ELDMs, etc.

The lower and upper was made by Hogan. GAP manufactured the rifle.
man·u·fac·ture
ˌman(y)əˈfak(t)SHər/
verb
past tense: manufactured; past participle: manufactured
  1. 1.
    make (something) on a large scale using machinery.
nothing I said about Hogan manufacturering my gun was incorrect. GAP assembled the parts. They didn't manufacture anything.

I was wanting to know load info on the 6.5 creedmoor. I'm aware they are good shooters. Also the video sound is distorted.

Weird, the sound works great for me.

Anyway, give GAP a call, they should be able to give you a good load recommendation. George gave me one for the 6mm Creedmoor and I found it worked great and I've been using the same load for years. Also, try looking in the reloading sections of this forum, you might find something good in there and the load doesn't necessarily have to be for a GAP10, just any semi-auto 6.5 Creedmoor. Be careful of the bolt gun loads, they can be too much for the gas gun.

Need help having ejection issues with gap 10 g2 in 6.5cm. I bought this second hand and have had nothing but issues with this gun. When I received it I took it out to the range and shot it unsupressed and it kept jamming on me. I took it home and the retainer for the buffer was bent so I replaced the buffer tube and retainer because it had damage. I cleaned everything well and took it out with factory match loads 130 grain and used my suppressor with the gas turned completely off and was still locking bolt back. I'm thinking the spring I need to replace the buffer and get a stronger spring to counter act the over gassing. Any thoughts?

If your gas was completely turned off, how is the BCG cycling? What gas block do you have? Is it the Noveske or something else?

Hmm, not sure what brand gas block that is. GAP's website says they use the SLR Sentry 8, but that doesn't look like a Sentry 8. Nor does it look like Seekin's. Is the adjustment screw on the front or side? Maybe take it off the barrel and see if the adjustment screw is not closing all the way.

My old Gen 1 in .308. Shot tiny groups with fed fusion 180gr. I had a guy talk me out of it but regret selling it.

What loads are people shooting in their GAP10s in 6mm Creedmoor. Looking for suggestions.

I’m shooting the hornady 108 gr match. I may start to reload for this, but haven’t decided yet.
