Gathering all the parts for my next build.

So far:
Fulton m21 receiver
Satern heavy stainless barrel
GI op rod, trigger, and bolt

Not going to bed this one, but hoping it’ll be a real shooter none the less

First part of recovery is to admit you have an addiction. :ROFLMAO:

Very nice build you got going-

Looking good! Keep posting the build. Curious, why no bedding?
Went that route on my last 3 rifles and wanted to see what accuracy I can get out of this without bedding it. Plus, this t44 repro stock is a bit on the thin side and I don't want to take all that much material off of it. I think I will keep it as is and treat it as a heavy barreled battle rifle.

Hi
What is the story on the Satern Barrel?

Never heard of it?

Hi,
Well, for my best personal SHTF, AR-15 Build...

I went with a Daniel Defense CHF Barrel and matching BCG.

The barrel was close to $300, but it hits like a hammer!

I would not go that deep on every build but I did for that one and glad I did!

That's the Satern barrel you mentioned before about going 18.5", correct? That almost seems like something I'd be interested in. You had Satern do that correct?

Separate. I have a 22 from them, going on this build, and they are going to cut one down to 18.5 for me.
Just one more quick question;

On the 18.5" cut down, are they just cutting and crowning, or cutting the splines and threads?
