    Good call. I recently took the plunge to 6.5G and was looking at Larue, AA, and PF, all have good creds with the 65Grendel guys. I have an upper in the queue at PF, they have a 12-14 week lead time so it should be here in a month.

    Right now, thinking about optics, interested to hear what you'll run on the Larue. Mine will be an 18" mid-weight precision barrel, given the realistic hunting/target ranges I'll be shooting at, I plan to run a lighter 2.5-10x FFP.

    I'm thinking the same thing for the scope.

    Well Iíll just go be poor somewhere else.

    I already have an upper/lower/rail thatís sitting lonely in the safe so itíll be a frankenbuild for me. Awesome choice on the Larue.

    Iíve looked at the 65Grendel forum, any impressions youíve seen on just barrels from there? AA, Faxon, Ballistic Advantage? I see they have group buys all the time that I think come from Faxon.

    ARP has their 6.5 G barrels - 18 and 20 inch on closeout. He is a 6.8 guy at heart and often hates on 6.5 G but I have built three 6.5 G uppers with ARP barrels and they were all shooters. If you want to piece together a 6.5 G upper - this may be a deal for you. https://www.ar15performance.com/inc/sdetail/38016/41933

    My shooting partner recently built an 18 inch 6.5 G ARP barreled upper and it worked great out to 900 yards with Hornady Black.

    All three get pretty good feedback from what I saw. At first I planned to use a Faxon barrel too and put together my own upper, but decided to opt for the PF and go for a precision upper since I don't have one in 5.56.

    I built mine around an 18" Faxon match gunner barrel and bolt.

    I got the bbl on sale from Aim Surplus last Black friday for $172... and it came with a pinned Faxon gas block.
