    It's hard to tell from the photo's but does the top of the receiver not match up with the top of a "mil-spec" handguard?

    Nope- the handguard definitely sits lower than the receiver top does. If you look at the buffer tube, you'll see it sits lower than an AR's as well, so you may need a cheek riser.

    I checked with Jard, and the second shipment will, whenever it arrives, still be smaller bolt face kits, for 556/.223, .300 Blackout, etc. They will be bringing in larger faced bolt builder kits in later shipments. Longer term, they intend to bring in some interesting additional Jard projects, like a J180 lower that takes AK mags, and something in 9 mm.

    I was seriously contemplating buying one of these receivers to convert my DPMS panther from a safe queen to a NR tool that I can use. Problem lies in the NR part, to be NR the barrel has to be 470mm (18.5" )or longer. The barrel on my DPMS is 406 mm (16"). So that creates a new problem. Instead of having a prohib in my safe that I can't use and have to await it's fate come April 30th 2022, I have an unregistered restricted firearm in my safe. Bein in possession of an unregistered restricted fire arm would not be a good thing should LEO com knocking at my door.

    You could probably order the build kit and either send your parts to Sylvestre or have a local gunsmith do the install and handle the registration for you. The J180 has an FRT entry. The only negative is the government would know you have your restricted J180, and of course it would be a range queen. Or buy a non-restricted barrel with the same gas tube length and use your other parts in an NR build.

    I guess I could do that but that Kind of defeats the purpose. I could just as easily buy a completed J180.

    Enough twenty inch ARs out there.
    Buy a barrel.

    Be ready to start the celebrating.

    If you put flip up sights on, would that variance be OK, {adjust for it?} or is there a higher/riser type front sight that would need to be used?

    The third shipment will have complete firearms, but if you don't want to wait, I'm sure ATRS or IBI would be happy to sell you a high quality Canadian made barrel.

    As you seem to be in the know..........

    Is there a time line for the larger bolt face to arrive. A none-restricted in 7.62x39 is appealing to me.

    Thx
