Andrew Avila: Sweet build!
About your bolt carrier group. You stated everyting is similar to a
5.56/223 except the bolt itself, how about the firing pin? is that standard
5.56/223 or do you need to have a special one for 7.62
Howjadoo22: I'm sure you've fixed it by now, but in case you haven't, you mag release
button isn't screwed in all the way... The screw should be flush with the
face of the button.
Brian Clark: Bought one today at a Houston gun show ( complete minus lower). Ended up
spending about $675 for the upper, parts kit, milspec buffer tube, free
float handguard, MOE stock and a c product designs mag. installed on a
spikes lower. Can't wait to take her to the range :) got the 16" barrel. I
like the look of the 20" and might go that route eventually once I see how
this build goes
Dewey Barnes: I also have the fakcog and actually it does well on my ak
nicholas morales: It's a boot, not a freakin' shoe.
Snake45679: 3 quick questions.
1. can you get a shorter barrel.
2. whats the price.
.3 and can you put a quad rail on it?
Pat Hand: Oh! I think I just figured it out...You are in Kalifornia. Now I understand
the "just for looks, fake box magazine". Geez! What a crap state.
Mu Am: is it possible to attach a bipod to this rail? If yes, how? thanks
Pat Hand: How could you possibly fire 7.62x39mm using that magazine? The only mag
that will work in a standard AR15 mag well are ASC CURVED mags?
Jacob Aaron: Having a bipod mounted to your barrel completely eliminates the point of
havinga free float handguard
TeufelhundOR: Zero at 100..
ldbranda: Good build. Ignore the assholes that can walk on water and know everything.
Good information here. Thanks.
H Nguyen: Nice setup. FYI. Firing pin is different.
belbro62: i really like the ak round on a ar. wondering if its worth the buy. got
the 300 blackout but ammo is super expensive and rarer than a unicorn
unless you reload so this is an alternative . got two lowers on back friday
sale.i want to start to build a 11.5 pistol on a model 1 upper. what
magazines do you recommend
afshin735: I forgot to mention the ammo. I use golden tigers for most of my x39 guns.
afshin735: Buddy, I don't mean any disrespect but either you are a lousy shot or
upper/scope has a problem. My x39 Colt upper shoots MOA at 100 yds (3
shots) and slightly larger with 5 shots.
VEight Merc: go to my channel and search "ar15 magazines" I have a whole vid explaining
what magazines I use and why.
PrepCaliber: When you ordered from Model 1 sales, what options did you choose to get
that exact upper?
TylerWCarr: Which round is better for CQB?
slant6guy: Good video: thank you! Just a few items... -What magazines do you have for
the 7.62x39mm AR15 you have? What is the capacity of them? A 25 round that
looks like the 5.56mm STANAG 4179 magazine? or a 10 round version or a more
curved 30 round magazine(s)? -Also, you stated that you wanted a 16" barrel
version, I'm looking at a Model1 Sales Dissipator 7.62x39mm A3 upper
receiver. I like that because the 20" Bushmaster AR-15A2 I have has the
same sight radius. What do you think of that? Thanx!
VEight Merc: definatly, no prob. Post em as responses to all my videos for this rifle.
VEight Merc: Do you like to randomly describe yourself in the comment section of youtube
VEight Merc: No no, You can stuff 25 in that mag you see in the video. In my Magazine
options/issues AR15 7.62x39 video I go over the whole thing. I just
recently got "15rd" 6.8 spc mags for this gun and they work great. Heres
the vid /pdSyuBg4sgE
Chris Nena: Russians had it right when then create this ammo. Frigging deadly.
VEight Merc: slightly more but not much. I think it also depends on your stance, if you
are standing a bit sideways you can absorb the recoil while keeping the
sights on target. But it does have more muzzle jump.
boutcha1: I love it. Would love to know where to get all parts on your build, it's
Michael Samaniego: I take it you live in CA. The only reason I say that is cuz I think I see a
bullet button. True?
VEight Merc: Im assuming you mean between 5.56 and x39. 5.56 decreases collateral damage
where as the x39 would sail through and pass through the wall behind (FMJ).
5.56 will dissapate its energy in the first target and not have enough to
do damage behind (FMJ). Now HP are a dif story, in that case I would want
somthing with more Kenergy to dissapate into my target to stop it as fast
as possible. My pick would be x39 with heavy HP to deliver all energy into
target. And you can punch through cover if need be.
FrankenFraud: Can you provide any links & other crucial info on how & where to obtain
this kit or a company that sells a gun similar to yours? I currently own a
WASR Double Stack that shoots the 7.62x39 & I have a ton of Wolf ammo. And
I am giving serious consideration to selling that gun & going with an AR-15
like yours. Thanks-Great video btw!
Aint1S: You sir, are a smart cookie! 223 overpriced... I'm replacing my 10/22LR for
this ammo and it just makes sense or cents! So cheap to feed for a varmint
funa mota: Will it shoot steel case ammo and do you recomend. It
VEight Merc: The ammo that I use is bulk and dirty. The gas sytem will clog up (I have
not cleaned my gas tube yet) and the bolt will obviously experience dirtier
conditions (domestic ammo is much cleaner). I have never wondered IF my
rifle will fire. I know it will because I run it "wet" and clean the bolt,
extractor, and firing pin every time I shoot (because of corrosive) Just
clean it and it will serve you well. I have just got a scope in a recent
vid, making this my DMR. Any more q's just let me know.
VEight Merc: like I said in the video (600rds at the time?) no FTF. Now I got 800
through it with steel and yugo brass corrosive. No problems even with
hollow points. Only thing is it has slight more recoil, I cant tell the
difference because Im a 30 cal guy anyways (does have less recoil than an
AK though) I have no expereince with AK's in 5.56.
VEight Merc: it should have been explained in this video or try my AR dissembley video
or the Model 1 sales review video (type in either title in the search bar
on my channel to find them) x51 is the AR10 not AR15. That is a standard
AR15 type lower. You can ge a variety of calibers on the AR15 type lowers.
The AR15 cannot feed and chamber 308 (x51) because the bag well is not long
enough.Your caliber is limited by the lengthe of the magwell. you can even
put a 410 shotgun upper on this lower, let alone 223.
TheRonrod68: Cool rifle, I just finished mine as well. 7.62X39 also. I did not buy the
kit like you did, which cost me more than it should have. Next build will
do the kit and lower. I did the Aero lower as well with CMMG lower parts
kit, spikes upper Model 1 bolt carrier group. Also 16" M4 style carbine
barrell. MOE furniture in FDE and rail height gas block.For sights I am
using a dtachable A2 style carry handle with A2 sights and a detachable A2
front sight.I hope to post a video soon.
nicholas makover: Thanks alot for your help man, I thought corrosion would set in within
hours but if it takes a couple days or weeks then I got no problem with
cleanup. Thanks once again!
Peter Martinson: Yes, that is why the bullets are being pulled. I was just wondering if this
was a common thing with Model 1 Sales 7.62x39 uppers.
VEight Merc: You should check out my latest vid of this rifle. AR15 7.62x39 100yd 1MOA?
Those targets in the vid were shot at on a cold december day with irons.
VEight Merc: Lower was 100 and the upper rifle kit (inc. lower parts kit and stock) 635.
telmanm5: Ак 103 сила
VEight Merc: The lower is the firearm so it is sent to the ffl.
VEight Merc: Model 1 sales .com, it is a pretty user friendly site. It is the exact
place I got mine at. Glad to help with any other questions. I got 4 or 5
other videos on this rifle that may help you out as well.
VEight Merc: I let it sit to see how long it took before it rusted and in a room temp
environment it took 2 weeks. We recently got a 5.45x39 upper that only
shoots corrosive ammo. We follow our cleaning method and after 500rds
through it, no rust yet. The point is you don't have minutes to clean your
rifle, you got at least a few days at low humidity and room temp. I
wouldn't like to pour water down my barrel as it will get moisture in other
parts of the gun. Only rust I can remember is the gas tube roll pin
ccarlin52: will any lower work with the a3 upper?
Guns & Gears: I am thinking of getting a kit like this from model 1, but the 16 inch a3.
How does it run, any feeding malfunctions or other problems? What kind of
mags does it use?
VEight Merc: I think the LAR47 uses ak mags? But try Model 1 sales, thats where I got
jonathan case: At 50 and 100 yards, you should be shooting a better group... 100 yards is
the distance you need to focus on with that round. With bullet drop and
all, a 100 yard zero (meaning your crap is hitting the same spot over and
over) is where you need to be. That means with most of your scopes or
whatever optics you plan on putting on, you can calculate the drop
