I'll give it a shot........

 

Often a round will get stuck in the chamber and it won't come out by simply pulling on the charging handle. The way you get it out of the chamber is to pull on the charge handle while you rap the butt of the rifle on hard ground with pretty good force. A lot of folks think they will never need to do this to their rifle. I have had to do it to all three of mine at one time or another.

O.P.

Definitely want an aluminum lower for a pistol build.

It is not going to be shouldered like a regular rifle, unless you go SBR.

That will add stress to the extension section of the lower.

Prices are low enough on forged lowers if you look around.

 

Here's my 300 Blackout pistol build, close to the specs mentioned.

Good luck on your build.

 

Thanks,

Glenn

The one in the video came free pretty easily. I've had to bang them a lot harder to free up the bolt and or clear the jam.

Also when you have to mortar don't forget to slide the adjustable stock all the way in. I've heard of people breaking their stock by banging it on the ground all the way out.

i've seen fixed M16 stocks get busted up mortaring, now the fact they were mortaring them from three feet off the ground contributed to it, but you give someone the minimal instructions n something's gonna give

I saw that deal. I almost jumped on it. I've got my heart set in a badger state ordnance spartan upper.... I'm just trying to figure out which lower. I'm to keep the weight of this build as low as I can... that's why the polymer kinda caught my eye...

I would think in general a forged lower would be lighter than billet unless its expressly machined to be light.  Most of the billets I have seen (not that I have seen a lot) are a bit more blocky than forged.  I know my billet side charger is considerably larger than a forged upper.  That may be just because its a side charge.  The barrel and optics are where an AR gains weight.  My 16" .300BO carbine was light as a feather til I dropped an older 3X9X40 Pentax on it.  The scope is amazing so it isnt going anywhere.  In fact I am looking at another one now.

Why go poly when you can get an Anderson for ~$30 right now?  It weighs about a half a pound.

Agreed. Got a couple coming to me. For that price, it's a no brainer. I think that's the lowest I've seen them.
