He did, however, give me a parts list of what went into it, and in the interest of not forgetting any of it, figured I'd list what was going into this rifle:
Lower: York Arms Conspirator (natch') with a custom serial numberThe stock will eventually be swapped out with something like the Magpul PRS, but for now the butthook gives something to hold onto for precision work at a price that didn't make this build too pricey. I'd prefer something adjustable, since this is meant to be a long-distance precision rifle shot mainly from a rest. The flattop upper will have the Leupold Mark AR that the good folks at Leupold were kind enough to send for the build a few months back.
Stock: Choate E2 'butthook' style
Trigger: York Arms 2-stage at a very crisp 4.5 lbs
Upper: A4 flat top, no sights / no optics per your request
BCG: A correct 8620 carrier and 158 MPI bolt, all done in NickelBoron
Barrel: York Arms custom - 223Wylde, 1:8 twist, air-gaged, Chrome-MolyVanadium, 'husky' profile, 25" length, fitted with a NickelBoron extension.
Handguard: Troy Alpha VTAC, 13" with a short rail segment to mate to a bipod
The barrel, well, I know that 20" probably would have worked just as well, but the extra length can't hurt, and after shooting the MG Arms K-Yote with the 24" tube, I'm impressed as hell with the accuracy out of the longer barrel. I've got a nice Harris swivel-mount bipod that I can put on it, but I'm thinking about looking for one of the rail-mounted ones for aesthetic purposes.
Hopefully I should have pictures of the completed rifle in the near future, and it will be a Friday Gun Pr0n picture shortly!
That is all.
