Call me crazy but with 7.62x39 ammo running at just about .22 cents a pop I'd like to try and build up a gun that will run it efficiently enough to serve as an all-purpose plinker and hunting gun.
I got a MAS Defense built upper with a 16 inch carbine 1x10 barrel and with the savings on this sparsely equipped model I ended up splurging on the bolt, which is a Leigh Defense NiB. I slapped it in an AIM Surplus NiB carrier and rounded this out with a DPMS lower that is marked 7.62x39.
I could have done the project without the lower but what the heck since this is my first stab at a AK ammo AR I figured to keep it separate from the "multi" caliber flock.
I also bought a Red-X arms enhanced firing pin.
The ammo, Wolf 122gr FMJ steel cased, arrives tomorrow - I figure to do a function test first with 100 rounds and then get started with the project part.
I'm thinking about using a Lead Sled and firing up the old chronograph to assess the ammo and guns native accuracy at 100 / 200 / 250 yards.
I expect 2 - 3 MOA at BEST, how are you guys getting better accuracy from there?
Where there is a will there is a way and I only find accurate ARs interesting.......
