    I have been wanting a 6.8 for several months. Was stuck between lwrc razorback and modern outfitters mc6. Was leaning towards the MO because of the weight difference. Now I've thought about just building my own, especially since I already have an extra lower Im not using. Looking for very lightweight 16". But the barrels for both lwrc and MO are very cool looking. I think if I could find the barrel, I could build one just as light as the MO without a $2500 price tag..... any suggestions or thoughts?

    Have Eric from Blackstone Arms build you an upper. Build your lower for it.

    I think I actually shoot better off sticks with a heavier rifle.....


    Once I get it into position, of course. (Haha)

    You could. He posts here as hdfireman, so you could PM him, wait for him to reply... he'll take good care of you. The A R P barrels he uses, take a back seat to no one.

    Im opting to build my 6.8. I get everything I want and jave no 1 to blame if it sucks. I built 3 ARs so far and all perform flawlessly. I used the same barrel as BA as a foundation
