    I hadn't realized AR-types had gotten so inexpensive.
    Don't hold your breath waiting for pics, I've been sitting on the A1 barrel for about seven years without sending it off to ADCO.

    I'll certainly post pics when they're done.

    Good question

    I'd say Creedmoor just cause it has more support for it nowadays.
    On my honor,
    I will never betray my badge,
    my integrity, my character,
    or the public trust.
    I will always have
    the courage to hold myself
    and others accountable for our actions.
    I will always uphold the constitution,
    my community, and the agency I serve.

    Ballistically speaking the Creedmoor, but the Grendel is nice because it can be used in AR15's, just change the barrel and bolt and you're good to go. I shot it accurately as far as 600, but have heard good results at 800. The Creedmoor will leave it in the dust.

    Brownells has A2 uppers and A1 uppers.
    They also have triangular hand guards, A1 tubes, etc.

    I think the CM is a superior round compaired to the Grendle
    However
    The AR 15 is superior to the AR10 due to the USGI standards compatability
    I was tinkering with a CM build the other day that is short stroking due to a short buffer tube
    The five different design variations with almost Zero compatability just totally drives me nuts

    I know what you mean, I have two DPMS GII AR308's, a DPMS Gen I and Spikes Tactical. I like 'em all, but the differences can be annoying. For instance, the Spikes Tactical was designed to only run with the Magpul type magazines, runs like a sewing machine, but an aluminum DPMS mag or others will not work because of the profile of the back of the magazine, it won't allow the bolt carrier to go forward! I called one of the managers of Spikes, they said it was designed that way, they didn't even think about the metal mags, hard to believe, but that is what he said! Good thing I have plenty of Magpuls!
