Listener Feedback:
Richard Jensen: Hi, Jake — Saw this on thegunwire.com. I’m not sure if Reed said he’d ever built an AR from an 80% lower or not.
Does anyone really think that building an ‘unregistered’ AR would make a difference IF a ban made it through Congress?

They don’t have an AR-15, but they do have an M16-A1.  I had to pay to get it (.99 for one firearm, I think I did $2.97 for 5 (AK-47, M1 Garand, Remington 870, Mauser 98).  One of the things I like about the app is that you can label the parts. :)

Jeff Hinkle – Hey guys,  Love the show.  I just finished listening to episode #2.  In the episode you briefly discussed the 300 AAC Blackout.  After reading an article in Recoil Magazine I decided in July to build a 300 BLK upper for my AR.  The only difference between a standard 223 AR and the 300 BLK is the barrel.  The mags, bolt carrier, gas tube, gas block, handgaurds, and upper receiver are exactly the same as your standard 223 AR.  The only issue I really had was tuning a reload that would cycle 220 grain subsonic loads.  I realize no one can be an expert in all facets of AR’s so I thought I would pass on a little of my experience and knowledge.  Keep up the great podcasts.
