This is my "Mule" anytime I test parts, I end up doing it on this one. weather it's a trigger, or BCG etc... this rifle has had a ton of parts through it. I don't have a current pic. I shot it out to 350 yards with a scope and bipod, but that was a long time ago.
Right now it has the Luth AR stock, and a 4x32 ACOG (green chevron) with RMR.
-Mega lower
-BCM upper
-no clue on rail
-223 wylde 1/8 16'' barrel
-Trigger Tech flat 3.5# trigger.

8.5'' Pistol build. nothing special about this. pretty generic. Picked up the palmetto upper and rail from a friend. added an 8.5'' barrel and kak blast can (i think that's what they call em)
Fun to shoot, makes a ton of noise and shoots fireballs.

This is my rifle and what it did today.
This group consists of two twenty round magazines shot over 15 minutes from the bench with the usual bipod and rear bag.
Not bad for a .gov profle chrome lined barrel with a NATO chamber.
The ammo is a home rolled 62 grain BTHP over 26.1 grains of AA2520 in a Lake City case with a Wolf primer.
I don't know why the shot group pic is so big and the rifle pic came out a reasonable size.

An 18" fluted Bartlein with .223 Wylde chamber by Craddock Precision, left bead blasted, forms the centerpiece of this rifle. I've never seen finer work, myself! BAD 556-LW receiver set and 13" rail, all done in tungsten Cerakote by Shapeshifter Finishing. The usual MSTN N/M bolt carrier group, with fitted bolt at minimum chamber specs, all done in Ionbond DLC down to the gas rings. Can't go wrong with a PRI Gas Buster! This rifle has just about every part V Seven offers in Titanium, some you can see, and some you cannot. Vltor A5 recoil system and SF MB556 finish out either end.

How do you like the 1-6 SWFA? How does it perform up close to a couple hunred yards, say 500?

Thinking about one for a similar type build.

Mine is the SS1-4HD FFP. I bought it new and it has really been a joy. I recently found and purchased a second like new one and have reconfigured my and my wife's identical carbines with them. In my estimation there is no more versatile option for the AR platform. I am faster with it than a dot due to my astigmatism making dots look weird and the added capability at distance cannot be overstated. I talked about versatility here https://libertyandlead2.blogspot.com/2018/02/versatility-for-win.html

Get the switchview lever from SWFA though, the ring is stiff.

I took the 2 Trijicon MROs off and put the 1-4s in their place.

The SPRish rifle above that the original was on is probably going to morph into a Grendel.

The new combo.

Did they discontinue the HD 1-4? Only see a 1-6 HD on site.
Yeah, it stopped production once the 1-6 was introduced and was removed altogether a while ago.

They actually have a trade in 1-4 in the sample list for 500 I believe.

They have a trade in 1-6 there too. The reticle in the 1-6 is different and I personally didn't like it as much.

I used to have one of the early 1-4s and it was a great little optic (relatively speaking). I haven't looked at the 1-6 but SWFA makes good glass.
I drive by there everyday when I take my kids to school.

This is my Palmetto State Armory AR-15. RRA 2 State trigger and a Ballistic Advantage 18" 5.56 SPR barrel with OPS 12. It shoots great out to 550 yards but i havent had the chance to take it any further. Right now I have a Vortex Crossfire 2 4-12x44 on top that works well. 20160920_165124.jpg

My 3-gun rifle is mostly Aero Precision parts with Wylde 16” mid-length gas, Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6, Velocity flat single stage trigger, JP captured spring, Magpul plastic, flash hider rather than comp. Simple and reliable, not too heavy, expensive or fussy. I’ve had fancier ARs with lighter parts, adjustable gas, etc. but this is the one to keep.

No issues with Aero’s quality control, had several and all quite good FWIW.

For years I have been convincing myself that my bolt guns got the job done and I really didn't need an AR, but the past few months the urge has gotten to be too much. So, after looking at factory offerings, I decided to build one myself and finally got all the parts together. Nothing fancy, just a basic rifle.






Aero Precision Stripped lower
Seekins LPK and adj. low profile gas block
DS Arms 6 position buffer tube
DPMS buffer/spring
BCM upper assembly, charging handle and pistol grip
Stag Arms BCG
Brownells B-TAC 16" 1 in 7" socom profile barrel
Magpul MOE stock
Troy 13" Alpha Rail Handguard
