Mano di Dio v.1- LWRC 6.8SPC carbine

09437B0F-2746-482D-A113-DC7E64570650F6B1E8D4-183C-4440-9885-F726D2B5DADD5B79EDCE-6745-4429-9CC2-940F4CDD20EE24C17D45-53CC-4559-981C-C46BA92AE60B9638D59A-BF8B-4446-9F82-082B5BB128CA24690E7E-FB0E-4152-BF9F-093E818F6A1572C5FB97-D77D-4A32-89A8-6AC87570ADD6If all goes well, this November a group of LFers will get together to blastificate some wild Bacon...I mean pigs.  I know 5.56 with the right ammo would be fine but it finally gave me an excuse to use a really old LWRC 6.8 SPC lower (take a close look at the stamping) that I got from ATS.  So this is what I’ve come up with so far (and without firing a shot, I already see a couple of things that will have to change.)

-LWRC 6.8 lower with Colt LPK

-H3 anti-tilt buffer with Wolff spring

-Colt 4 position receiver extension with gen1 LMT SOPMOD 

-TD PR 4 sling mount with BFG Padded Vickers sling

-LWRC M6A2 piston upper, 16” barrel

-KAC 45 degree offset irons

-Aimpoint T-2 in Spuhr FBI HRT mount

-SF Fury Tactical 1000 lumens in LT mount

   The HRT mount might be too high.  I’ll have to shoot with it first.  I also have the C-More 1-5 in a LT mount that I’ll try as well.   The ammo will be XM6.8GD.  90gr Gold Dot.  That should do ‘em.

    I always use a vert grip which means ye olde tyme KAC.  I have an LT grip but the QD lever always seems to get in my thumb’s way.  I’m going to try a hand stop as well.  And maybe a M203 if I ‘m feeling frisky.

No worries.  I got you.  (Actually going to the new Torrington courthouse Thursday.  Unbelievably nice and HUGE.  Lots of room to process criminals quickly and efficiently.  Lol. )

I knew there was a reason to like you:  6.8 

I agree, the mount does look high, and for hunting you might want to look hard at an LPVO.  Why?  The added magnification is always nice as well as a no-brainer, but the ability to look into shady spots (think like a hog) and shadows is gold.  By late morning this time of year (and early fall), most animals are laying up and digesting the morning graze/forage, and not moving unless necessary.  A good LPVO with a sufficiently large exit pupil will gather enough ambient light to allow you to see the kinds of details and movement in the early morning twilight that you won't catch in a 1X Aimpoint or something similar.  If you really needed to dial down to 1X, you can, but your dedicated 1X sure won't be able to go above that.

Any hogs that have been hunted will go nocturnal. Unless you run across one driving about or over bait.... they disappear.

Bolt gun?  What bolt gun?

That’s my baby, my first custom.  Factory Surgeon Scalpel in .308.  Remember I told you I wanted SAC to rebarrel it in 6.5CM?  Couldn’t do it.  That’s why I got the PGW Coyote.

It appears there is thermal in my immediate future.  I may switch my hunting technique to over watch  instead of walking through the brush.

You might want to have someone take a look at that receiver end plate and castle nut. The sling mount looks like it has rotated slightly clockwise, and taken the castle nut with it, breaking the original staking.

Walking through brush after hogs at night will either get you ripped up by hogs or shot..

With NV and/or thermal it is viable, since you can see. Otherwise... bait and watch is the common method. With thermal you can drive, scan, then stalk up and shoot.

I see what you mean but it has to be the angle as the PR4 is dead nuts level.  Once I got everything dialed in I restaked the castle nut and went to town with locktite.

There is no staking on the receiver end plate/castle nut in those photographs. Also, looking at the sling mount in relation to the rest of the rifle components, it appears canted in the photographs.

Have you leveled the sling mount and staked it since those photographs were taken?

You didn't loctite the castle nut did you? I presume you mean just the bolts in the sling mount 

Regards.

Uhhhhh.  OK.

THESE  pics are right after I screwed it together.  Nothing has been staked or loctited yet.   Now they are.  I of course did not loctite the castle nut.but I did do every screw that could come loose as well as painting witness marks in case anything does back out.  This ain't my first rodeo.😉😎
