    Pretty stoked to see this rifle,but why couldn’t they make that upper receiver contour line up with the lower,it’s killing my OCD.
    Right? That was my first thought. Whole thing seems rushed. No one seems to want to get back to me about a .243 anyway.

    Starting to think that myself, unless all of the pointless bickering has sufficiently buried the original question.

    The barrel is a bit vague as well though I've learned to expect that, without some provenance or depth of detail, "match" is just a marketing term abused in the MSR scene

    SO why all the hubbub even if its the """same""" receiver ? Wasnt the problem with the BCL102s the BCG they used ? Something about the extractors on them being pretty grabo ?
    Or is there more to it ?

    That, and the process cheese alloy that they chose to paint instead of anodizing to impart some surface hardness. None of which pertains to the design, the execution of which by Troy should be divorced from the typical nea derangement syndrome infesting the topic.

    Saw it at taccom, spoke to a couple people about it. It's essentially a rebranded BCL102 with super minor differences.

    Why get a SEMI AUTO...only to have it heat up and shift POA/POI after only a few rounds?! Lol...especially in a "larger" calibre too!!!

    A lightweight Barrel will only wander as it heats up if it was not properly stress relieved at the factory during the manufacturing process. All of the Main Battle Rifles of the 1950s and 60s were designed and factory-equipped with so-called "pencil profile" barrels. Picture the FN FAL, M14, G3, heck - even the original AI AR10 had a lightweight Barrel beneath a Grenade-Launching Barrel Shroud. Back in the early 1980s Army Reserves we used to fire our FN C1A1s until the wooden Handguards were quite literally smoking hot, without significant POI shift. And that's an absolute fact, not a hazy youthful recollection. So you see, only an improperly treated barrel will crap the bed and suffer POI shift as it heats up.

    If that is true (not saying it's not/you are wrong) then why are medium-heavy barrels even a "thing" then?
