This one belongs to James, a friend of mine and the host of the Bidet Shoot. The backstory on this rifle is that the first few times he took the rifle out….something broke. And by happenstance, I was there for each one 😀

Finally had a chance to sit down and list out all of the parts for my FAR-15, which stands for *ucking AR-15 🙂

Base rifle: CMMG basic AR Carbine model, bought October 2007

Innards: Adams Arms carbine-length gas piston conversion
Adams Arms full-auto one-piece bolt group (designed for gas piston conversion)

Geiselle S3G trigger group

Optics: Eotech 512 Holosight
GG&G Eotech QD throw-lever mount
Magpul Gen 1 front and rear MBUS

Furniture: Vltor Enhanced EMod Buttstock
Magpul MOE Carbine Handguard
Magpul MIAD Grip (with 2-AA battery grip core)
Magpul Winter Trigger Guard

Other: AAC Blackout 18-tooth FH
Magpul MOE Handguard Sling Clip
BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle (Medium latch)
Magpul B.A.D. Lever
CMMG Ambi-Safety Lever
Magpul MS2 Sling
Magpul Ambi Sling Plate

Future Add-Ons

Spikes T2 or T3 heavy buffer (want to check with AA first)
Forearm mounted light (need one that doesn’t interfere with grip)
Eotech Laser Module upgrade (why? why not?)

As much as I rag on ARs in general, and this one specifically, I fully believe that my earlier issues with the gas piston system were 100% user error. Now that I have been educated properly, I don’t think I will have any more issues with it. This rifle is built exactly as I want MY rifle to be, which is not something I can say of most any others in my collection. Wish I had more .223, I would shoot it a lot more if I did.
