    Yeah. I realized after I took the pics that I had forgotten to put the buffer in.

    The 1:9 barrel twist will not stabilize heavier bullets but if you aren't worried about that then it looks good.

    I prefer 1:8, or 1:7 barrel twist so I can use 75 grain bullets for HD or hunting.

    Also with my old eyes, I prefer a removable carry handle to be able to mount an optic if necessary, but I like the idea of the retro style set up if you don't have a problem using iron sights.

    From what I understand, there is some controversy over chrome lined barrels. The coating may not always be applied evenly, which can affect accuracy.

    Not sure where I read that, but it might be worth a Google.

    I've read pretty much the same thing.... generally speaking, unlined barrels may be more accurate, chrome lined barrels may be more durable.

    Of course there are a lot of other variables, but everything else being equal, etc....

    I had read that as well. From what I could find it appears the chrome lining only makes "maybe" a 1/4 MoA difference but does significantly protect the barrel from heat erosion. To me the small loss in accuracy is worth the increased barrel life. Last thing I want is to have to worry if that last mag dump just caused premature wear.

    I have a .223 bolt that would be used for hunting so that's not a great concern for me. This is mostly just a fun gun to me.

    ------------

    My main concern is the overall quality of the company building it. Are they known for good quality products and reliable quality control?
