DIY AR Build Tutorial
« on: December 06, 2012, 04:00:50 pm »
For all of those like myself who are taking advantage of Coleburn Armory's deal https://wethearmed.com/m-w-coleburn-armory/wta-special-ar-recievers/ on AR receivers, here's a cool resource that I definitely plan to use once I get my receivers.

    Possible silly question; I'm building one of my uppers for the soon to be received (?) Aero lowers and I've run into a possible problem.  I've put a Yankee Hill full lenght free floating hand guard on an DEZ arms barrel and flat top receiver but when I tried to check the head space with Go/No GO gages there was no difference in bolt carrier travel.  The upper is 556 and the gages are .223, is that the sole reason I see no change between Go and No Go?  Thanks in advance, Jim. 
    Good night Chesty, wherever you are!

    It's possible for a good 5.56 chamber to swallow a .223 No-Go gauge. The best check would be to use a Field Gauge.
