          1. Make sure it will reliably chamber and fire your duty round.
          2. Put about 1000 rounds of your duty round down the pipe.
          3. Make sure you inspect every part in detail when you clean it.

          "I" would dump the DPMS Bolt Carrier Assembly and replace it with a CMT/LMT/RRA or Colt assembly that has been MP tested and properly staked. I would also run a 5.56NATO Reamer in the chamber and check the headspace so that it will reliably fire just about anything out there. Finally I like to function check my AR's with Wolf ammo because it's cheap, filthy, and underpowered.

          In reality you would probably be better off just selling the whole 20" upper half and getting a 16" upper with a 1:7 twist from a reilable vendor (CMMG, Noveske, LaRue etc.)

          • Boomstik,
            Shoot me a PM, we can get together sometime at the DNR range in richmond hill if you like and check out your AR. I'm sure that upper is fine. No need to spend loads of money unless it's not working properly. Living near an armorer has its advantages.... Close by - warehouse 27.

              What's "properly staked" ?

                        • I just got off the phone with CMMG because I had a few questions about their parts/options. One of the questions I was sure to ask was what are the benefits and/or legal issues of a FA BCG. They said the benefits were a greater weight (in grams, not ounces) which reduced the cyclic rate and may increase reliability but did not have much benefit in a semi auto carbine/rifle. They said there was no manufacturing/machining or tolerance differences between the semi and FA carrier. He also when on to say there we NO legal issues with having a FA carrier in a semiauto rifle in ANY state that he knew of. I was impressed with the customer service and product and they will be getting some of my hard earned bling on Thursday.
