re: Official AR-15 thread


Anyone familiar with Wheeler Engineering products? Bout to embark on my first upper build and i scored this LINK . I dont know if its a brand new product or what, cant really find any reviews on it. But it seems well made and was a great price for a multi tool and torque wrench combo.

Been on order since Dec so I'm hoping maybe June frame period to actually have it.
And thats just because I went with the 18" hoping it would be less popular than their other offerings.
Folks with orders are getting confirmations now as soon as their lower is built, thus giving them a serial no. and ensuring they will receive one even if a ban goes into effect in the near future.
One of the local AR makers did the same thing. Can't understand why more companies didn't think to go that route.

About to get the SureFire P2X Fury dual output LED

I'd rather have the 15 lumen option instead of 500 only.

re: Official AR-15 thread


whats the OB's consensus on how much ammo is enough. Here is what I had before my pontoon boat sank sunday.


5000 .22lr
2300 5.56
1200 .223
500 12 gauge
200 .30-06
50 .38+P special
0 9mm

I need some more 9mm and .38 special I know. I am also thinking around another 1K of 5.56 and maybe a few more bricks of .22lr.

How easy is it to pop the fury in and out of the mount in case I want to bring it with me to carry or whatever?

hey guys, when it comes to buffer weight, what are the advantages of going with H, H2, or H3? What is the difference? Recoil? thanks in advance.

The heavier buffer will reduce felt recoil, and also reduce that twang sound in your ear.

If you're going to use the regular buffer and spring I'd go with the H3. I'm wanting one of these for mine. Supposed to be really quiet and similar results or better than the H3.

Yep, replaces the whole thing. And you're supposed to removed the buffer spring retainer so it just slides in and out.

Not that easy, you are supposed to use locktyte and really screw the mount down, you have to if you expect it to withstand constant firing without moving
