Hello everyone, I'm an old Army infantry veteran back from the '80s. I spent two years in Ulm, Germany and two years at Fort Benning, GA. Additional schools included the NBC Defense Course and the Small Unit Armorers Course.
After a long hiatus from firearms, I recently "rediscovered" ARs. After a lot of research, I purchased a Troy "Sgm Lamb Carbine"; full length 15" rail, HK style front sight, 20" sight radius, match grade barrel and a Geissele super 3-gun trigger. .
. I look forward to using BHW to be an integral part of my first custom AR build. The customization offered and the Caudle rifling are the finest features available from any manufacturer. I admit I am more than a little intrigued by the Caudle rifling; once I saw the drawing, the other barrel manufacturers fell off my list. I'll be posting a few questions in another section...
Thanks for the welcome, everyone. Lerm, thank you for your service, Semper Fi.
I painted the Lamb after watching a Youtube video posted by the US army AMU showing how they paint their rifles. I experimented with about a dozen different colors and coated the entire rifle in Testors flat lacquer, available at any decent hobby shop. Testors military modeler spray has a ton of colors available, although I only used one color from them. The OD and darker tan are the Rustoleum camo colors, the rest was satin finish and some fine steel wool to rough it up a touch, then the flat lacquer.
