I think this rifle - unfinished - looks good enough to photograph, thanks to the just plain good looks of the PROOF Research CFW barrel and Battle Arms Development receiver set done in Tungsten Cerakote. If you look closely, you'll see good number of V Seven titanium parts, too. And how about that VZ G10 pistol grip?

A lightweight, compact, precision build based off of a Proof Research carbon fiber wrapped 14.5" barrel and a Battle Arms 556-LW receiver set. MSTN N/M DLC coated BCG and PRI Gas Buster. Just about every titanium part V Seven makes. Geissele SSA-E trigger. VZ G10 grip and rail panels. BCM KMR rail with titanium barrel nut. Next Intent Tactical titanium adjustable gas block. SF WarComp pinned and TIG welded. Magpul MOE-SL buttstock. Tungsten Cerakote by Shapeshifter Finishing. I really hated to see this one leave....

I know, I know, Veer_G spends all of his time in the Bear Pit and never makes those posts, you know what I mean?

Hopefully, this'll give your weekends a good start.

Just turned the last screw on her two hours ago. I think I shall call her "Agnieszka," in an homage to a past European sojourn, as weapons are as close to strange as I'll ever get. The build is DMR-ish, I guess, the result of a few lazy years of parts accumulation. As the pile grew, I accelerated the pace, and here we are after a 7 month wait on the barrel, which wasn't unexpected.

From left to right:

- YHM Phantom QD FH
- Custom 20" 5.45x39 H-BAR barrel from ASI, Byers, CO, chambered for Hornady V-MAX 60gr
- Superlative Arms AGB BO .750, melonited/melonited gas tube
- VLTOR VIS-3AK "polylithic" 12" FF/upper, picatinny rails/FA
- Atlas BT10-LW17 bipod
- Stag Arms 5.56 lower (thank you, BHO) c. 2008
- Power Custom Oversize Magazine Release
- Geissele NM DMR trigger
- No-Name 5.45x39 BCG
- DEZ Tactical Arms Enhanced FP
- Custom extractor cut down from 7.62x39 model
- BCM Gunfighter CH
- Brownells AR16/M16 Oversized Trigger Guard
- Radian Talon 45/90 Ambidextrous Safety
- Sierra Precision M16/AR15 grip
- JP Enterprises Silent Captured Recoil Buffer Spring Assembly Gen 2
- Luth MBA1 buttstock/QD sling swivel (not pictured)
- CTK AR Rail
- CTK Ultimate Rail-Pod

Glass and mount are being thought out, and I have a pair of Troy HK-style Micro Battlesights. As-is, 10.2 lbs.

Comments?

You need to get a range report on this thing ASAP! I've always thought a 5.45 AR would be awesome but I don't have the balls to get too far off the beaten path.

If you don't get off the beaten path, Kirk, how are you ever gonna get to hook up with blue-skinned women with fire-red hair?
