Not a build, this is a factory Noveske Johnny rifle 10.5" SBR in .300BLK. It's #70 of 250. Unfired, with box, manual, certificate, all extras, etc. Cerakoted in Foliage Green and has Foliage Green furniture. Novekse marked Magpul mag, AAC 51T mount for SDN6 or similar suppressor. Selling it for $2500 to anyone interested. The other side of the receiver has a flat black "Johnny Rifle" logo and "70 of 250". There's a photo of John using one of these before he died and they were made around that time.

It's a very handy little rifle and with an MRO it's pretty nice and stays compact and light. Weighs practically nothing, very well thought out. The Keymod FF tube is very narrow but very solid and keeps the weight down even further while giving the rifle a thin profile. Keymod slots at 3,6,9 under the break apart covers. I'm sure it's as reliable and accurate as all their other stuff.

It would make one helluva patrol rifle given it's size and weight, and being a tier 1 factory rifle, it's accurate and reliable. It just has a no-nonsense simplicity that's valued in the field.

Hows it going folks? This is my 224 Valkyrie build. This is a pretty budget build compared to whats available out there for 224 Valkyrie factory rifles. Anderson upper and lower, Brownells BCG, STNGR 15" hand guard, Strike Industries brake and Viper fixed stock and a CMMG 24" 1:7 barrel. With the exception of sighting in, I haven't shot it for groups yet. I wanted to get some rounds through it before I did that. I have about 200 rounds through it so far and I am pretty happy with its performance.

Tried my commando upper in precision mode tonight:


Took some effort, but well worth it. The blast, flash and noise were enough shock & awe to disrupt the others' training.

British SAS upper receiver group on a standard Canadian Forces (less the FA) ambi lower. Manufactured by Colt Canada (formerly Diemaco), who have only fairly recently started selling to the public.

This is straight out of the box. Made a number of changes and managed to ding the finish already. Sigh. I guess that means that I can go ahead and cover her with Aervoe, right?

Whats the barrel contour like on these?
Quite heavy. Can't really get in there to measure (barrel removal requires a special tool due to the monolithic upper) but I would guess the profile is the better part of an inch down to the gas block and then probably about .750 to the muzzle threads. The barrel is treated with some form of corrosion protection since it's pretty much impossible to get in there.

The upper is noticeably heavy for the length.

Getting about 1.5-2 MOA with some ammo and 3-4 MOA with others. Don't know what the Brits use, presumably SS109/M855.

RRA LPK with 2 stage
LMT SPM16 upper
Daniel Defense Omega 7.0 rail
CTR stock
Trijicon 1-4X Accupower
ADM Recon mount
Not shown but now on it:
Magpul MS1 sling with BFG QD buckle
Magpul MOE K2+ grip (God the GI grip irritates me)

LMT carbine.jpg

I also have an old Aimpoint Comp C on a Larue LT150 and a Larue LT103 rear sight. Don't use them due to astigmatism. For me a LPVO with a true 1X is the answer.

Put the new 5-25x50 Vudu on my .223 precision carbine I built. Really like it so far, it seems to be on par with the T5Xi 3-15 I replaced with it.

Heres 3 groups I threw down quick just to double check my zero. I was using Black Hills remanufactured 69 SMK ammo. I’m far out of practice, and this is a difficult rifle to shoot precisely (light, and it’s thin but tall, so small inputs cause large movements), but still got sub moa out of it. I adjusted the zero after the second group, which is why you see a shift.

Here's my battery of FDE AR rifles. All are LWRC Gas Piston 5.56s' except the rifle with the MRO Patrol, which is a dedicated AR-22 using a 16.1" .22LR Tactical Solutions barrel (1:16 RH Twist Rock Creek) and 416 Stainless BCG mated to the Upper and Lower Receivers of an FDE LWRC DI. All (including the AR-22), have Geissele SSA-E Triggers, FDE Troy BUIS Front & Rear, FDE (Magpul) Gen 1.0 MIAD grips with the F4 Integrated Enhanced Trigger Guard, Tubb Chrome Silicon Flatwire Springs behind LWRC H2 Buffers, and sit on Harris BRM-S bipods with direct-mount, ADM AD-BP-P2 Mounts. Obviously, the AR-22 doesn't need a Buffer or Spring, but I like consistency of parts. Front-to-Rear, the rifles are:

FDE M6IC Enhanced w/FDE ADM Scout 30 & PMII 1.1-4X20 LT, FDE M6IC Enhanced w/FDE ADM AD-B3 & TA11, FDE LWRC / TacSol AR-22 w/FDE ADM Full Co-Witness & MRO Patrol, and FDE LWRC M6A2-S w/FDE Gen 1 UBR+ Strikeplate.


FDE M6IC Enhanced w/ADM FDE Scout 30 & PMII 1.1-4X20 LT:


FDE M6IC Enhanced w/ADM FDE AD-B3 & TA11:


FDE LWRC / TacSol AR-22 w/FDE ADM Full Co-Witness QD Mount & MRO Patrol:


FDE M6A2-S w/FDE Gen 1 UBR + Strikeplate & FDE Troy BUIS:

Built 2 gray and one green. PSA 10.5 nitride kits were on sale for 259 a while back. Added PWS comp and Magpul SL handguards and sight. Slings and lights mounted now too.

Wanted these to keep in the vehs in discreet bags.

Thought about getting one of PSA’s 10.5 kits and similar outfit it + light. Haven’t heard much on their pistol kits, though their 16” middy kit has been reliable for me (1,000 round test, 1% failure rate, had to clean at 600, cleaned trigger group at 800, this shot with generic 55 grain FMJ, USA made brass case)

Would you in your time with the 10.5” kit consider it enough for HD duty? Would you bet your life on it? Am considering it versus the much more expensive BCM uppers.

Note: It would not be a “training” carbine that saw thousands of rounds per year, more like 1- 2k per year if that for familiarization.

Finally got my m110 SASS 223 copy finished. I’ve been wanting to build this rifle for years and couldn’t be happier with it. Shoots bug holes with Hornady black 75gr otm factory ammo.42AACCDA-BCE8-4EC4-A1DA-36BC34102468.jpeg

Here's some more fun ones:

11.5" Grendel SBR, 6.5Ultra9 and USO 1-8x

8.5" .300BLK SBR, decked the fuck out. This is the one I keep handy.
IMG_0905.JPG

Was gonna be a USMC issue type rifle but the rail didn't fit the barrel so I FF'd it. Just a well built 20" rifle, actually made mostly from spare parts. Tenebraex noticed the eyepiece cap was the wrong on and sent me a new one, so that's a bit different.

Timgunner - thanks for posting that beauty. I keep going back to it and admiring it. :p

I have never had or wanted a FDE long gun but just decided I would build a BOLT GUN project as FDE but thought I'd not do it with my next AR project. Your pic pushed be over the edge however and I think I will probably will. (y)

Is yours Cerakoted (or another finish)? Is it Magpul FDE?

Absolutely.

Upgrade the extractor spring to wolf after break in and with the premium BCG you are good.

I have many many PSA rifles and have had no failures that are not considered ammo or mag related.
