    Default Got a New Toy, the AR 57 upper.

    Hi Guys,
    I bit the bullet and bought a AR 57 upper from Cope's. I have it mounted on my Bushy Lower receiver for now. I will be taking it to the range on Monday and I will post a range report with pictures. Has anyone else shot one of these yet? If so let me know what you think of the upper and what optics/ buis that you are using.
    Thanks,
    will6970

    How is the barrel mounted into the receiver?
    Is it pressed pinned or screwed.
    The PS 90 barrel is not solidly mounted.

    I shot my friends AR57 conversion two weeks ago. It was accurate and fun to shoot. He just had the factory iron sights so I don't know what the accuracy potential was. It seemed to me that the low recoil would be a terrific compliment to someone who had a registered F/A lower. It functioned flawlessly and the design ranked way up there on the "cool factor".

    I want one but definitely can't swing it since I ordered a Safety Harbor Ultramag .50bmg upper. Still want to see the pics/range report!

    Yeah no kidding about re-loading, I re-load for every caliber I have and a few that I hope to have some day. One problem is finding load data for the 5.7 x 28 useing some of the various powders. If you have any known charge data please let me know.
    Many Thanks,

    Hey Nalioth,
    Good to hear from you! You bet I will post some pictures. I will post some before and after of the targets, the rifle inside and out etc. Let me just say that I am VERY IMPRESSED with the quality of this upper, it feels rock solid and if it performs as well as I think it will you gents might want to pick one up before....well you know.... Take care man! I will talk to you later.
