    Sounds like the DPMS Sportical. I see kits and parts available every now and again.

    Sportical's,,,uh,,not the greatest. The ones I've encountered are rather low end, and BCG's seem to be much looser in the uppers than other brands I've run into and everything is not so tight overall . I haven't owned one personally and they may shoot just fine,,I don't honestly know,but there defiantly a bit sloppy IMHO. The M4 Sig I have is nice and tight and smooth by comparison for roughly the same bucks,other than maybe the front hand guard,mines a bit loose and pretty common on that model Sig from what I've read.

    I think there was mention of some issue with Anderson's too,what it was I don't recall right now. But someone here was mentioning something negative about those last year when I was considering putting one together and we were having a discussion,I don't recall what the particular issue was with them right off though,or even which version it was in relation too ??

    There's been enough discussions about AR's in the past so maybe they'll be something help full in the archives.

    Yah...What they all said. I would recommend against it based on being the one guy who actually has had to use a forward assist in a firefight.

    Just my $0.02

    Thank you Chiroone and others for your input.I. don't mind the forward assist I'm just different about i guess. Like ammo makers have come a long way in the in fifty years.the upper itself with no back up iron sights. Which I know you gotta just screw em right on.I also like tear drop button assist over the round one and I was taught banging a round in was worse than banging on our. Only time I had the faiure to chamber is fully chamber I did what a bud and banged the weapon down unlocked the case to extract and let me get back to primary mission. .los of tin cans.thanks guys I just think the inertial thng works.
