Default $50 BCL-102 Handguard

Made my final payment (SFRC let me do that for some reason) on a 102 stripped receiver set on order that ships in May, so I've started to look around for parts.

Handgrauds in Armlite spec are well $400 and that is basically the cost of a barrel. However, somebody posted a handguard on CGN and I ended PM him asking how it had turned out. Gave me the thumbs up and said it was all to spec.

Its named the TriRock you can have either 12'' and 15'' version, are Armalite spec (1-7/16" X 18 UNEF-3A) thread, 6061-T6 aluminum, anodized, and the "15 one is 1.17lb which is 0.26lbs lighter than stock. The only downside is keymod, but, for grips and stuff for that, it is perfectly acceptable if you ask me.

Best part they are ONLY $50!

Good to know, I like the stock one. They do however need a barrel, trigger and high pressure bolt with undersize firing pin. I tossed the stock barrel and fit a 6.5 x 47 Lapua on mine. How much for a stripped receiver and estimated wait? I want to build one from scratch as well. Next will be a .243 WIN

Stirp receiver was a one-time thing back in January, and I have no idea whether or not they will do it again. They are $830 with tax and I did it over 3 months. The only way I could afford it. I was just planning on buying stuff slowly over the coming year, but, an insurance claim from being rear-ended (C-1500 vs audi q4, C-1500 won) is changing that and I'm very excited.

I am waiting to actually get the receiver set (ships in May, unless delayed) and as soon as I get I am heading over to Alberta Tactical Rifle to figure out compatibility with the BCG (I hope the Brownells one does, lowest cost) and barrel etc. Trying to wade through CGN or GOC is just a pain in the ass and I just do not feel like buying a bunch of parts that may not fit.

However, from what has been officially posted I have been able to figure out some of the specs. Hence I have put some of the basic parts on a list that should be compatible. This is a do everything rifle, so I have been taking cues from my personal use case/experience and the "what would Stoner do?" rifle project:


Geissele SUPER CHARGING HANDLE 7.62 or Radian Raptor AR-10 7.62 $100-$170 respectively (Cross dominant, going to be learning to shoot Left so this is needed for me. I have read online that the Radian Raptor does need mod's with gen 1, I do not know with gen 2. The Geissele is drop in from what I have read and has the approval of InRangeTV, I have a lot of respect for them. I am leaning to the Raptor due to the significant cost reduction, but, having to mod it is putting me off)

Matador Arms The Stinger (I do not feel like ****ing people off at the range, part of a Swiss Rifle club and I would enjoy being able to make friends. Also Matador is a local company)https://shop.matadorarms.com/collect...=4885895020572 $109.99

ALG Defense ALG Combat Trigger (Will be hunting gun so I think that this will be a good option to prevent AD, but, not have a gritty or crapy parts kit trigger. Also, I have shot Enfields a lot and have no issues with there trigger. This one kinda has similar pull weights to an Enfield) http://www.armseast.ca/alg_defense_t..._trigger_act_/ $89.70

TriRock 15''Hand Guard $50 (already bought, shipping takes a long ass time) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Blac...ceBeautifyAB=0

Standard pistol grip: https://www.albertatacticalrifle.com...ory_pathway-89 $15.00

Basic A1 or A2 with buffer tube: Not sure what the price will be since I will be using JP Captured Recoil sring. ATR has a full A2 kit with spring and buffer for $175. Take the spring and buffer out not sure what it will be.

JP Enterprises Silent Captured Recoil Buffer Spring https://www.albertatacticalrifle.com...ory_pathway-97 $220.00

Crossfire II 2-7x32 (wanted a 2-7 Diamondback, but discontinued) http://www.vortexoptics.com/product/...v-plex-reticle $200

Grip pod of some description

The barrel I have had a quote of $450 for a barrel from Mystic Precision

BGC if the Brownells one works and headspaces $200. If it doesn't well dammit more money...

Then all the small ass crap I am missing.

The Raptor charging handle needs to be ground down on the Gen 2 receivers, Gen 1 was drop in. Apparently they fixed it for Gen 3.

From what I’ve read the Brownells BCG doesn’t work properly with the stock barrel, even though it headspaces correctly.

Well I'm not going to have a stock barrel so that doesn't really matter.

I found this and it will be important for the stripped receiver owners:

From SFRC on CGN:

If you are replacing the trigger guard with an aftermarket one, please remember to put the notch in it. If you donít, pinned magazines wonít fit in the gun. You may also need to shave the back of the rivet down on mags that are riveted on the spine.

Also:

Can somebody direct me to the ruling on the XCR pistol magazines? I don't feel like having mine confiscated along with my rifles like some guy did back in 2013 with LAR-15 mags: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT9yGCdr7o8

If any of you guys are looking for a MFT Battlelink stock, I ordered one in SDE but I am receiving a burnt bronze 102 so I'm going to a black stock instead. So I have this for you at a good deal.

RCMP have ruled that the restriction is on the magazines not the firearm;
http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/b...323-72-eng.htm


4. Magazines designed for one firearm but used in a different firearm

The maximum permitted capacity of a magazine is determined by the kind of firearm it is designed or manufactured for use in and not the kind of firearm it might actually be used in. As a consequence, the maximum permitted capacity remains the same regardless of which firearm it might be used in.

Example:
The Marlin model 45 (Camp Carbine) rifle chambered for 45 Auto caliber uses magazines designed and manufactured for the Colt 1911 handgun, therefore the seven round and eight round capacities are permitted.

So nothing changed then really - a 10 round pistol magazine is legal to be used in a semi-auto centerfire rifle.

Hey direwolf, do you have a picture of the hand guard you installed? Interested to see how it looks. I also have a bcl102 on order. Looking into replacing the hand guard too. Thank you.
