Bump.

Also, for someone asking about stripped down, $1300 plus shipping without the railed handguard and stock. Another $50 off if you don't want the Schuster.

That’s not a XM21. It’s a M21 DMR receiver. There’s a difference. The XM21 version only has Picatinny rails and not iron sights. The M21 DMR receiver, in my opinion, is a better selling point since most prospective buyers are looking for both scope and iron sight options.

And your shims are in the wrong place. They go behind the front band.

Also, I’m not aware Springfield ever made a 18.5” medium weight barrel. Can you post pictures of the barrel markings?

Tony.

Good points, thanks. I'll move the shims.

Yes, M21 DMR. The other one I sold last year was an XM21.

You're correct, Springfield didn't make an 18.5". I had it cut, crowned, and threaded by a local gunsmith down to that length because I prefer it in .308. Did the same thing with my FAL - perfect mix of length for velocity vs weight when you're hanging a suppressor at the end.

If you go back through my previous posts, you'll see where I bought this barrel on here then ended up sending it up to Jeff to put on his receiver when I bought it during a sale Christmas before last. I'll see if I can take a minute to get pictures of the barrel markings, you can see them when it's out of the stock.

M21 DMR Bula

A rear sight would be needed for open sight shooting? What kind of flash hider would be needed for this resized barrel? Thank you, Rick

Yes, you would need a rear sight as well as a GLFS (Gas Lock Front Sight). The gas lock on it now has no sight base option.

I have the pic rail that threads into the front and rear screws for this per the M21DMR option, I was going to scope it.

I believe we threaded it 1/2x28 for a .30 cal to 5/8x24 adapter but I'll have to check tomorrow. I was planning on suppressing it, hence the Schuster, with my Gemtech HVT THD in .30

M21 DMR Bula

Thank you for answering my questions. Would it be a expensive undertaking to get the M21 DMR front and rear open sight option? I have a tiger stripe stock that it would look great in.

I don't know what Jeff sells those for. Getting a GLFS isn't expensive at all. A NM hooded rear sight can be had not terribly expensively from a variety of people, including some on here.

Replied, thank you. Not interested in trades at this time.

Still need to get pics of that barrel and I don't believe the muzzle has the notch for a standard flash hider but I'll double check. It's a cut-down Springfield NM medium weight barrel that was 21" so I somewhat doubt it.

Yeah, should have posted when Tony asked. Sorry, it's just been crazy.

Threads verified 1/2x28. A little over half an inch of threads and .0561 shoulder at thread base. Sorry for the weird lighting on one picture. (and yes, I did use the other end of the micrometer for more accurate measuring, I just took a picture where you could see the digits).

Thanks,
