NG

Hey Everyone,

New here. I was interested to see if anyone has used the SR 5.56 Takedown yet? I'm interested in putting the upper on a lower I have and was wondering if anyone has tinkered with this yet? I like the idea of switching barrels out, not guns. So looking for some help before I buy. The lower I would be putting it on is a Franklin Armory lower with a BFS trigger. I'm not a gunsmith or pretend to be one, but I think they should just go together?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Welcome to the forum!

There have been a few reports of the SR TD in the rifle forums. People seem pleased.

Welcome from middle Georgia. I looked at it, but when the salesman tried to show me the procedure and the bolt slammed forward before the barrel locked in, it took a gunsmith to get the bolt out. The bolt looked alright but that made me think I really didn't need another AR that much. I can just buy a .300 BLK upper and not worry...

Welcome to the forum.

I doubt that, as long as, the lower from your take down is MilSpec, you'll be fine.
