Project 14.5 AR Full Review w/ Faxon Pinned Barrel

This is a review of Project 14.5, an AR project by myself and Optics Planet.  This AR has a Faxon 14.5 pinned and welded barrel, Faxon gas block and BCG.   For those people concerned that this rifle is not “California compliant” you’ll see the ejection port cover is closed.  That’s because there is no BCG installed.  That means it’s not semi auto and not an AW.  In other shots I took out the bolt from the BCG in which case same thing.  It’s not complete and not semi automatic.  That’s how I’m able to show it like a standard rifle.  Thanks guys.  Good looking out though, Appreciate it! THE RIFLE FEATURED DURING THIS REVIEW IS NON OPERATIONAL IN ITS CURRENT CONFIGURATION!

Houston We Have A Problem! Project 14.5

 There was a problem with Project 14.5 that needs to be addressed.  The handguard has started changing shape after the pinned compensator vented pressurized hot gas into it.  This problem seems to be getting worse as I continue to run it.  I will be changing this one out to a 12" version .
