Pencil barrel that is. I made a new upper for Miss Scarlett. The initial AR I put together didn’t work well with backup iron sights and I have been saving for a nice scope for it. In the meantime, I had an itch to make a super lightweight AR. I got her right at 6.5 pounds now and I can still push it out to the 400m 11″x18″ steel plate.
- ER Shaw .625 16″ pencil barrel with A2 flash hider
- BCM A2 FSB (drilled and tapped in 3 places to tighten around barrel)
- Magpul carbine handguard
- DS Arms stripped upper with KAC 200-600m micro rear sight
- Rock River BCG
Best part is, I’m only into this new upper for about $330. Working at a gunshop is great, I made mention that I was making a plain jane upper and people started handing me spare barrel nuts, unwanted flash hiders, etc.
