    My California Legal M4gery "Featureless" carbine

    While I registered two AR15s (a mid-length 16" and a 601 replica) as Bullet Buttoned Assault rifles with CA DOJ, those are limited to 10 rounds and bullet buttons. I decided to build a "Featiureless" M4gery home/ranch defense carbine that I could use my LEO exempt Magpul Gen II 30 rounders in, and have a standard magazine release. (stupid laws )

    Parts list:

    Stag Arms lower
    Colt SP1 lower parts kit
    Monsterman Grip
    Colt M16A1 BCG
    Colt charging handle
    Colt Mil-spec carbine buffer tube
    Fiberite CAR-15 stock (pinned open)
    Colt 3.9 oz. H buffer and spring
    PSA T marked flat top upper with 16" 1/7 twist Melonite M4 barrel
    Wilson Combat Comp brake
    CAR15 skinny handguards
    Magpul Gen II BUIS
    Bushnell TRS-32 Red Dot

    Previously with this build, I got 1 to 1.5 MOA at the 50 yard indoor range. Today, I decided to try it at 100 yards on the property. I've never had better than "Minute of Pie Plate" with red dots at 100 yards, so I was absolutely amazed when I got a nice 1," three shot group with my MK262 MOD1 77 grain OTMBT ammo! This duplicates the performance of the RAW middy with its 2x7 tactical optic.

    I do believe that our problems with the local pack of coyote that are preying on the small dogs and house cats in the area, are about to come to an end. Lately, 4 or 5 neighbors pets have been killed by the pack, and several more have had large vet bills because of the pack.

    Pics tomorrow. My lame internet is refusing to upload pictures because someone else in the neighborhood is using all the bandwith before the signal gets to me.

    Nice work! So no evil bayonet lug and a less than vertical pistol grip and a fixed length stock yet ---- extremely accurate. It looks like you have a great place to shoot. Is that a private range? It's getting hard to find good places to shoot around here (western Washington). Salt Flat

    Its my front porch! Overlooks the three acres of horse pasture at the bottom of the valley/creek bottom. That is a cabinet I a about to refinish for the laundry room, but it made a handy temporary rest! You can see how steep it is from the downward angle I am shooting. Actually I seldom shoot there, as it p&sses off the neighbors. I had sighted it in at the 50 yard indoor, but wanted to check at 100 yards. actually had to do 3 clicks to the right.

    Fortunately, bayonet lugs are not a Californication evil feature: only pistol grips, folding/collapsable stocks, grenade launchers, and flash hiders.

    Range master. That made me laugh! I thought it might be your porch. Yea- I scratch my head over some of these gun laws. Keeping them straight is a challenge. Salt Flat

    Very nice. Does that grip angle work OK? Salt Flat
