I bought a Cryptic Coatings mystic black bolt carrier group to use with my BSF barrel mentioned in an earlier post. The Amorphous Carbon CVD finish reminds me of a finish I occasionally come across in my industrial maintenance career. I’m anxious to get my build assembled to see how this BCG holds up and if its worth the extra coin vs the hard chrome BCG’s I normally purchase. Cryptic Coatings Mystic Black Bolt Carrier Group offers reduced friction, increased performance, and greater wear resistance than that of a standard bolt carrier group.
I have wanted a carbon fiber wrapped .308 barrel for quite some time, but three things have stopped me up until this point, necessity, price, and accuracy. For this build, the necessity comes from the desire to reduce weight, and the 16″ carbon fiber-wrapped, fluted barrel weighs nearly 25% percent less than my similar Criterion Hybrid .308 barrel. The price, well it is what it is. Regarding accuracy, some carbon fire barrels have a reputation for stringing when they get hot, BSF does not. The .308 Winchester chambered 16 inch BSF Carbon Fiber Barrel appears to be the obvious choice for my new “CT Other Lightweight 308 AR build“.
The Radian Talon Ambidextrous safety selector is an easy way to make your AR-10 308 AR more user-friendly by allowing left and right-handed manipulations. It is important to be able to manipulate your rifle from multiple positions and this selector switch adds the ergonomics required to be able to do so. Machined from billet 7075-T6 aluminum, this safety selector can be changed between a 90° and 45° throw for faster operation.
The Viper PST Gen II brings you all the features of elite, top-tier tactical optics, with exceptional performance at a fraction of the cost. The 5x optical system delivers bright and crisp images across the zoom range with an impressive field of view for quicker target acquisition. Exposed turrets provide ample range of adjustments for dialing long-range shots, are available in MOA or MRAD, and always match the reticle. After a day of dialing at extended ranges, the integrated, mechanical, RZR zero stop will bring you back to your exact zero every time with positive engagement.
ODIN Works AR-10 Upper Receiver Vise Block is an indispensable tool needed for the assembly of an AR-10 and AR-15 Upper Receiver. This .308 AR Vise Block allows you to secure your upper while you clean or install barrels, forends, muzzle devices, and any accessories you want to mount on your upper.
The Young MFG 308 AR Bolt Assembly & Disassembly Tool makes it a simple operation to remove or install a new ejector and spring into the AR-10 bolt. Anyone who has tried to do this without a tool will be amazed at the reduction in the number of swears needed to perform the task.
Selected by the U.S. Army for both the Squad Designated Marksman Rifle System and for U.S. Special Forces, the Sig Sauer TANGO6T is available in the commercial market. Designed for today’s common MSR/AR and bolt action platforms, this scope is the ideal solution for CQB / mid-range tactical engagements, 3 Gun competitions, and hunting. The TANGO6T is complete with our HDX optical system for extreme clarity and low-light performance, HellFire fiber optic and glass-etched illuminated reticles, and first or second focal plane designs.
The Scalarworks LEAP Scope Mount is one of the lightest quick-detach riflescope mounts on the market. The LEAP scope mount is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and uses 4140H steel hardware for absolute rigidity that results in a near-seamless integration between your rifle and optic. Scalarworks LEAP mounts are designed using two of the most efficient structures in engineering, the tubular boom, and I-beam bridge. These structures not only add strength and impact resistance to the mount but also allow for significant weight reduction. Additionally, LEAP Scope Mounts feature the Scalarworks’ LevelDrive screw that ensures that your scope is always perfectly level when in the mount.
Power Drop-In Trigger from Hiperfire! HIPERFIRE’s customer base has clamored for an AR drop-in trigger that features the “feel” and hardhitting hammers its triggers are known for. Most aftermarket drop-ins are notorious for LPS, light primer strikes. To get the pull weight down, designers have compromised their hammer fall. Not so with the new PDI line of triggers. These drop-ins pull at around 2 lbs. and sport HIPERFIRE’s unique HIPERSHOE that now mounts onto a curved bow, not just straight. The hammer strikes surpass SAAMI’s copper crusher spec and hit harder than MIL-spec M4/16 hammers. Wow! The pull? It’s single stage. It’s short, sweet, and smooth as butter. The “feel” is almost transparent to the shooter. To top it all off, no PCC blowback violence can touch it. The PDI versions feature a hammer collision bumper. Its disconnector and disconnector spring are impact and crush protected. Is it just for PCC? No way. It’s just an excellent trigger. Anyone can appreciate it shooting slow, fast, short-range, or for long-range precision, and on the move, it surpasses SAAMI’s rough handling specification.
HIPERFIRE Hipertouch Blue Line Edition AR Competition Fire-Control Groups deliver ultra-smooth, crisp breaks along with hard-hitting hammer strikes to make your rifle fire every time you pull the trigger. HIPERFIRE manufactures these revolutionary Rifle Triggers for shooters who demand competition-level performance and want to support the thin blue line. The HIPERFIRE Hipertouch Blue Line Competition Trigger Assembly has only a hint of creep, with rapid positive reset, so you can hit those double shots faster. Upgrade from stock triggers to the HIPERFIRE Hipertouch Competition Fire-Control Group for AR15/AR10 Rifles for amazingly precise accuracy and to support law enforcement officers and their families
If you want to build a lightweight 308 AR without sacrificing durability or functionality, the Aero Precision M5 ATLAS R-ONE M-LOK Handguard is one component you want to look at. It is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a proprietary attachment system that ensures your rail is locked down tight and will not rotate.
The Armageddon Gear Precision Rifle Sling is a highly versatile tool that can be used as a patrol/assault sling, yet also provides support when firing from alternate positions. No other sling allows shooters to “Sling in” to a sling-supported position and unsling from that position as quickly and easily as the Armageddon Gear Precision Rifle Sling.
