Looks good.........does the B.A.D. interfere with the KNS pins?

Not at all, but it does interfere with the upper receiver. I end milled a bit of material off of the upper to allow the clearance for the BAD. I just matched the depth of bolt catch recess, and enlarged it where needed.

I'll be mailing it off to a certain company to have it re-anodized, that way it'll still match the lower.

Why the KNS pins? Do the pins walk out already when you fire it?

No, but it is inexpensive insurance. Also, the RRA NM trigger uses oversized pins already. So as preventative measure I used oversized KNS pins.

I no engineer or armorer but I believe that this will help keep the geometry of the FCG better vs using standard pins. There is absolutely no "play" or "slack" in this trigger. Everything is precise(the way it should be) and the break is very crisp. Thanks Bill!

I have a daughter but she's only 3, so no go just yet. The little nephew enjoyed it thoroughly. The recoil is nothing compared to most bolt guns.

Very nice build. I cringe at the thought of that front sling clip scratching that sweet looking rifle though.

Post a range report when you get a chance.

I looks like the front sight post is a circle. Ive never seen that before and I cant find anything about it on Troys website. Do you have any info?

It is a KNS sight.

Check my post with the pics and you'll find a complete parts break-down of the rifle.

BTW- Will post a range report after I get some more ammunition reloaded.

Been away for a little while and missed your post

I'm on the east edge of Fruitvale. Just off of F road near the Mt. Garfield Nursery. I thought those dirt hills in your pics looked familiar.

My friend of mine just ordered a barrel,bolt and upper from Alexander Arms to build a 6.5 grendal build.
Cant wait until we get it all done to see how well it performs.
