After several years of upgrading, I finally finished it. It Has a Wilson Combat 14.7 match barrel, Yankee Hill Suppressor, Gibz Billet upper and lower w/side charger, Spikes lightweight carrier, LWRC bolt, Hydralic buffer, RR 2 stage trigger, Trijicon MKIII 60 Thermo

Scope w/battery pack, set up on a Slik Tripod. Also has a Crimson Trace Green Laser w/light among a few other goodies. It shoots -1" groups at 100 yds. Have even gotten 1/2" groups w/some almost going through the same hole.

Nice pig rig!

I Like. Excellent Taste you have there!
Just a note though.
I ran an Enidine Hyd Buffer about 2 seasons and all of a sudden started having stove pipe/hang fires.
( Cost me a couple of Dead Hogs),
Turned out to be the Buffer was breaking Down, getting weak.
I put a Standard Spring/Buffer back in it and cured the issue.
But,, those Hyd Buffers really run smooth!!!

Might not be finished yet, thinking of having the barrel fluted to trim 6 oz.

Just trimmed 9 oz, by removing the Trijicon laser/light and installing a Streamlight TLR-2 HLG, laser and light are not as bright, but for a close shot in a hurry, it will serve the job. The weight is more important as the whole rig now is about 11 lbs., w/15 rounds of ammo. Also replaced the hydralic buffer w/a STC anti-tilt buffer. Now I need to get to the range, so that I can hunt!

Well I thought it was done, but decided to trim some weight. Sent the barrel to Carl at Kampfeld Custom to get a spiral flute, he trimmed 5.7oz off of it and did a great job, turnaround was 12 days w/shipping! Then I replaced the handguard w/a Faxon CF and their TI barrel nut and some other TI parts. I trimmed 20oz. The rifle w/o scope but w/silencer weighs 7.6 lbs. Will trim even more when my Crux Nemesis gets out of jail.
