Feedback:

Zephyr R: Just started listening. Heard three so far. Always riding the old guy is getting old. It was funny at first, but you do it every show. Show some more respect for the old guy and his iron sights etc.

Tony S: I've been listening to the podcast for a few months now but haven't seen a new one in over a couple of weeks. Hope all is well.  Looking forward to hearing  from you guys soon.

Nathan J: I recently finished building a 6.5 Grendel and am now fine tuning some of the parts. I have a 24" barrel and installed an SLR Rifleworks adjustable gas block to help tune the gun to the specific loads to prevent over gassing and to create a better shooting experience (reduced recoil, etc.).

Question:

I have always been interested in the JP Enterprises Silent Captured Spring because I hate the twang of the standard buffer spring as well as other benefits it provides (smoother action, reduced recoil, etc). Based on my current setup JP Enterprises recommends that I purchase the H2 version for my rifle, but I am wondering how much of a difference this spring will make (especially considering the price) when used in conjunction with the adjustable gas block. There are obviously some benefits that it still provides such as a smoother action, but the adjustable gas block should help resolve any bolt bounce due to over gassing. I know that my question is subjective, but in your opinion is the smoother action and twang elimination worth the $200, or should I focus my funds and energy elsewhere?

Martin S: I am actually starting my first build. I have a DDV7 and a Midwest Industries Pistol, but 556. I bought my barrel for the build from Ballistic Advantage (TY JD.) It's an 8.3" Premium 300 BLK. I am applying for the SBR. My question is about handguard. Two questions. I am thinking of hiding much of the muzzle device in the handguard. Probably a cone type linear comp). Do you see a real downside to having a 8 or 10 inch handguard on an 8.3 inch barrel?

Second question--I am dabbling with the idea of getting a suppressor. Should I go with a wider hand guard so the suppressor could go in that handguard? I love the Midwest, thin hand guard. 1.5'OD. Lovely to hold (and iron sights mount great). They make a bigger one to accommodate suppressors. Just looking for second opinions. Thanks!!

Main Topic:

Hey, I'm Aaron, a host on the Off Road Podcast for the past year. I was wondering if I could come on your show to talk AR15s, lowers, & iron sights.  I recently built my 1st AR15 followed up quickly by a 2nd. Both are very unique (see attached).

Also, our most recent episode was about firearms and rigs and general gun safety. It would be the episode I would mention. I've been around firearms my whole life. I also share many of the same views you guys do about ARs, and other things. I'd like to also talk about an upcoming AR build (SBR) I am planning. I've got some newb questions to ask about optics and filing for an SBR with the Govt., something I don't think I heard covered in your latest episode about SBRs.

I've been listening to your podcast for quite a while know and have been listening to other podcasts on the FRN for the past 3 years. I think I could make a great addition to your podcast for an episode.

Thanks for your consideration.

Short-barreled rifle (SBR) is a legal designation in the United States, referring to a shoulder-fired, rifled firearm, made from a rifle, with a barrel length of less than 16 in (41 cm) or overall length of less than 26 in (66 cm). In the United States, an SBR is an item regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) as a Title II weapon. In the absence of local laws prohibiting ownership, American civilians may own an SBR provided it is registered with the BATFE, and a $200 tax is paid prior to taking possession of or creating the firearm.

The regulation of short-barreled rifles was the result of the National Firearms Act of 1934 which also imposed restrictions on short barreled shotguns, silencers and machine guns.

When an individual wishes to build a short-barreled rifle, he or she must beforehand submit a completed BATFE Form 1
 

Feed Back -

DW Taylor - Since Reed is such a fanatic on Iron Sights, I had to throw him a bone!  I'm building a black rifle chambered for the 6.5 Grendel. This will be used with a magnified optic, but I also want backup iron sights. 20 inch barrel, low profile gas block, rifle length. I want to put a free floating handguard on it, probably either Brigand Arms carbon fiber or similar style.

I'm wondering how the accuracy of iron sights on a free floating handguard is compared to sights mounted directly to the barrel.

Also, what buffer weight should be used with this? I have a PSA Magpul MOE mil-spec lower build kit that I'm using, but should I use a heavier buffer? Should the buffer spring be changed as well? What's the downside of using mil spec buffers with a heavier round?

Thanks again for a very informative and enjoyable show.  I'm still working on my lowers collection, but do I really need 83?  So far I am only at 18% of that target.

Michael M. - Show 197 Barrel Temp, Listening to the show a comment was made that after firing 300+ rounds in three minutes that the modified barrel temp was 207 degrees and that a conventional barrel would be 1500 degrees kelvin. 207 kelvin is about 100 degrees below zero (-100 F). Just wondering if you were implying 207 Celsius (500 ish kelvin). Just curious as even reducing the temp by half is impressive.

David L. - Evening Gentlemen, when ya'll were reviewing Shot Show and speaking of a target viewing system not using a spotting scope.
I think Anthony mentioned it. Also saying that a techie kind of guy could make one himself.

Remember that? Could you point me in the right direction to do something like that? I don't like spotting scopes and find it hard to spot 5.56 holes 300 yds or further downrange.

Thanks Guys. Enjoy the Podcast and I am learning, not to my Gunsmith Son's level yet, but ya'll are my tutors and bringing my knowledge level up behind his back.

Jeff  - Hey guys! Looking to get a BCG for my build and was thinking of going melonite. Could you recommend what you would consider is the best on the market? Cost is not a factor.

Seth - Thanks guys. First time using the Otis cleaning tools. Won the bone tool last year. Love it. Looking forward to another great year of content. Keep up the good work guys.

Tyler - Looking at building an AR for my older brother, he wants something other than 5.56 but still something similar and easy to find. Thinking a 7.62x39 due to cheap ammo and it's an all around decent cartridge. Besides prebuilt ones that are ridiculously expensive, do you have any build suggestions? I'm hoping to stay with a plane Jane lower that can take any normal AR upper so if I wanna get him a present in the future I can build him an upper. Anyways like I said, I've heard there's some reliability issues in feeding and seen some forums where the guys all ground down their feed ramps and bored out a slightly larger gas port and they worked fine.  Any advice helps

Tyler Dice PSA barrels are made by FN. But are PSA barrels made to PSA spec, or FN spec?

Trump Lower for Inauguration

Main Topic:  

  1. What does milled, stamped, billet, forged etc mean for receivers- and does it really matter?

  2. What parts are “crucial” to spend to spend money on vs being cool-guy gear? IE Spend on trigger? Hand guard ok to skimp on? Does a quality buffer assembly matter or are they all the same?

  3. How does gas system length affect your rifle? How will I know what I should get?

Feedback:

Jeff - You guys might have already had an episode on this but can you have on on hand guards. The current trends and some of the exceptional companies that are out there for each price point.

Tim - Get the guys from Joe Bob Outfitters back on to talk about the Savage Arms MSR15/10! They're the only place I've seen with either one for sale. Would love to hear some insight from them on the rifle, as well as anybody from Savage willing to come on and talk about it.

Who The Heck is Michael?

 

Feedback:

Justin: 300 blackout powder.  I heard reed talking about getting some brass to reload from a sponsor and I was wondering which powder he prefers for supersonic and subsonic.

D. Sure enjoy the podcast. Was wondering if you meant the episode numbers on the website jumping from 188 to 193. Did we miss a few?

Big Al in Nevada:  Hi all, I've been enjoying the podcast for about a year, and have dug through some of the older podcasts. And I have a few questions.

1) What are your opinions on "dissipator" rifles? My youngest (who has great vision) is interested in an irons only rifle. I've considered building one for him. I'm thinking more of a fake dissipator with mid-length gas.

2) Next, I'm building a 6.5 grendel for target and hunting. I was considering a Luth-AR MBA-3. I know it is not a great idea to use a collapsible stock for target shooting. But any way to help fit this into my Jeep would help.

3) I haven't heard you guys say anything about the Boyd's wood furniture for ARs. I know it adds weight, but they look cool. Maybe these would get JD to build some of those imprisoned lowers he has locked up.

Thanks for reading, keep up the good work

The reception..

Feedback:

Chris B.:  Thank you for the podcast and the work.

I am going to play devil's advocate and posit that none, I mean zero of the electoral outcomes you suggest will actually happen and you have ignored the most likely of all outcomes.

A Trump victory is not only unlikely, but impossible since the educated voter base in the large cities in the states that matter will not vote for him when the time comes. I feel like you are pandering to this particularly conservative audience by giving that outcome teeth on the air.

The most likely outcome is that Clinton is elected, and then indicted, and then impeached, leaving Kaine and an uncomfortably liberal cabinet in charge of a long political stalemate and longer legal battle.

In this scenario, to which all the current evidence points, 2A issues will be the least pressing of our problems when Islam, China, Korea, and Russia smell economic and tribal blood.

Chris, I think Christmas came early this year.
