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.
nicholas morales: It's a boot, not a freakin' shoe.
TeufelhundOR: Zero at 100..
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
Jacob Aaron: Having a bipod mounted to your barrel completely eliminates the point of
havinga free float handguard
H Nguyen: Nice setup. FYI. Firing pin is different.
VEight Merc: go to my channel and search "ar15 magazines" I have a whole vid explaining
what magazines I use and why.
MrDailyPrepper: When you ordered from Model 1 sales, what options did you choose to get
that exact upper?
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?
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
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
VEight Merc: Oh really! that clears that up for me. Basically an Aero rifle then.
coooldeal: I have heard that those steel cased rounds cause more wear and tear.What do
you think?thanks for the video.
VEight Merc: look and feel of an AR with the cheaper (at the time) slightly more
powerful ammo. And I did mention that we have other rifles in the same
caliber, and 223 would be an odd ball for us. However, its not like the
different caliber upper makes it permanently modified. It turns your AR
lower into a multi cal platform and only one registered rifle. I am in the
works of getting a "M16" style upper.
h8i: How is the reliability of this in 7.62 x 39? How does it compare with an
AKM and an AR 15 in 5.56? (in terms of jams or FTF's)
Gunlover2727: @TheManfromNibiru is talking out of his ass
VEight Merc: This is the first time I have heard this. Maybe the bullets are of wrong
diameter? Try a different brand entirely. I have to honestly doubt the
barrel. give it a try.
Nicholas Travica: I was thinking it when he said it~ LoL
goosegaurd: How long is the hand guard?
VEight Merc: Thanks. I have already put on a Nikon monarch bdc on it and I just put up a
1k round range report.
VEight Merc: I just rolled over 1k rounds and never had an issue with feeding or firing.
Because the case of 7.62x39 is tapered it experiences less and less
friction as it is extracted from the chamber, this would mean it is less
susceptible to failed extractions. In all honesty, I just recently broke my
bolt (two lugs broke off) and I dont have an idea to why. I have sent my
bolt back for warranty work and Im waiting to see. This bolt breakage is
common for all AR's and is not a special case.
VEight Merc: In therory yes because brass is softer than steel. However I think it would
take a very high round count for issues to arise. Extractor breakage is the
only issue i can forsee but that is a inexpensive part to replace if it
happens. (but I still think it would take a high round count for that to
Matteblackful: Perhaps the 7.62x39 round will be more accurate on the ar15 platform (or
any platform other than the AKs) because the ar15 platform doesn't
quiver/flex as much as the AKs
