        Maybe they'll let me carry the AK-47 on duty

        I wish I could afford to build or buy one outright right now!

              If it's who I think it is, it's probably Lauer Custom Weaponry in Chippewa Falls. Well known as the DuraCoat® Firearms Finishes people, I think I've also seen some "custom builds" in a gallery on their site. They list suppressors as well as something called the LCW15: Target Rifle, Battle Rifle, Urban Responder, etc.
              The site seems to have some kind of error going on as I type this.

                • My 16" upper just went into production! Woot. Now I'm just waiting on the 20" 5.56 upper, and then maybe a 6.5 Grendel rifle.

                    • I joined the club..
                      and thank you to all the posts here about the AR's, it really made a huge difference in my knowledge.
                      Note to jwise...you're the man..thanks for sharing your expertise.
                      I ended up choosing the Bushmaster .223/5.56 A3M4 model. I've added a bi-pod forward grip and a scope, other than these items it's a stock rifle.
                      I'm in no way an expert, but I'm very happy with my purchase.

                      So, thanks to all.
                      I forgot, I bought a colt .22lr drop-in conversion kit as well.

                          IIRC, they make Duracoat. They also have some lowers floating about that are high quality.

                          1. LaRue Tactical is in TEXAS
                          2. Lauer Custom Weaponry is a very respectable company and is in WISCONSIN

                            Three?
                            Are you kidding?
                            I'd love to "build" my own, but I'm afraid that my finances won't allow another investment such as this. It's expensive enough just to buy the darned ammo for it...hence the .22lr conversion I bought for it.
                            I have three .45's that I'm shooting too, along with another .22 rifle ( Ruger 10/22) and a Remington shotgun. The cost of ammo, even it's lack of availablility is killing me.
                            I spend $100 every time I go to the range.
                            darned expensive "hobby" I've got myself into.

                              Three is correct. Once you play mix & match you will begin to understand/appreciate jwise when he says that "AR's are Lego's for grownups."

                              Very, very adddicting. You'll need to get a second job.

                              • Egress?

                                From page 26 of this thread:

                                Thank you. I'm glad it has helped.

                                Quote:
                                Topic #1

                                Can you discuss EGRESS, LMT Enhanced Bolts w/standard carriers, and LMT Enhanced Bolt & Carrier. I understand the benefit of the heavier FA carrier, but am not clear on the other BCG upgrades.

                                CMMG has the EGRESS at +$30 and the two LMT options at +$125 & +$189.

                                I see a reliability benefit from my reading about the EGRESS upgrade, but what are the benefits of the LMT upgrades that justify the price increase?
                                This is an exploded view of the E.G.R.E.S.S. kit:



                                You'll notice it's a five-piece kit. Let's look at what you get for $30 :
                                1) One-piece gas ring: Useless in my opinion. I've never worn out the standard 3 gas ring system that comes standard. Some may disagree, and that's fine. But I've never heard a competent gunsmith say, "put a one-piece gas ring in there and it'll run fine."

                                2) Chrome-Silicon ejector spring: The small parts and especially springs are affected by the high temperatures of the gas being blown back into the action. These parts wear, and break. Chrome silicon has two advantages, (1) lasts longer under normal use, and (2) is not affected by the heat as much (better corrosion resistance.)

                                3) E-Ring: This is the same thing a a D-Fender Ring which sells for about $10, but you can get the same result by using a #60 O-ring. The #60 is a standard size, and you can purchase a pack of 10 from Home Depot for a little over a $1.

                                4) Chrome-Silicon extractor spring: Chrome-Silicon wears slower and is more resistant to corrosion, but it does not say if it is an extra power spring.

                                5) Black insert: I have never found any evidence anywhere that says the black insert DOES anything. I have found lots of evidence that indicates the insert's color is only indicative of the type of spring used. I don't think this is a feature at all, but I could be wrong.

                                So- what are you getting? A $1 O-ring and longer lasting springs. Is it worth $30? No. Is it worth getting if you have no intentions of going to HD, buying a pack of O-rings, disassembling the bolt from the carrier, punching out the extractor retaining pin, and placing the O-ring over the extractor spring? Yes. The O-ring is VERY important, and so if you have no intentions of doing it yourself, I think it is worth it. You'll just get the other "features" bundled with it.

                                I have no experience with either the LMT enhanced bolt, nor bolt carrier. However, I know of SOME people who have bought these items and experienced problems in their carbines because of them. Most were users running very short-barreled rifles (10" or so). I know LWRC has had problems with their enhanced bolt as well. I don't know the current status with their ACB, but it had some teething issues at the least.

                                I'm a big fan of the standard bolt, as long as it has an O-ring over the extractor spring. That O-ring adds the power that the extractor needs for reliable extraction. The "sand cuts" and other features of the LMT products may be useful for some, but I would not whole-heartedly endorse anything that I do not even own, much less see the need for.

                                But, it's your money. You might feel differently. There are a lot of folks who own them and have not experienced any issues with their rifles.


                                I don't mean to sound stupid, but it appears that due to a backlog on CMMG's EGRESS bolt upgrade, they will soon be shipping my upper I ordered back in November without the bolt upgrade (My latest email from CMMG - The EGRESS bolt upgrades was placed on back order and it gave your order a $30.00 credit.). My question to you Jwise, is there anyway you can elaborate on the #60 O-ring placement, since I believe I will need to do that when my upper arrives. Or should it be crystal clear to me how and where I will be installing this Home Depot O-ring?

                                I greatly appreciate all the info you have and continue to provide us newbies.
