Battle Arms Development Paratrooper

I like the looks of it. Although that doesn’t look like solid walnut (might just be the photography though).

I wouldn’t want .300BLK and certainly wouldn’t pay $3k for it. :)

With a 7.5” barrel, it pretty much has to be .300blk or it’s virtually useless when it comes to being effective on target.

The cheek piece is likely dipped. The rest of it looks like wood. The grip is made from two halves.

I like it a lot better than black plastic.

I think you’re right. The cheek piece is essentially “simulated wood grain” like in a fancy car dashboard.

I’d expect more from a $3k weapon but you know how I roll, lol.

From the item description: 
Paying homage to the old-school WWII era weapons, the "PARATROOPER" is furnished with custom Grade A French Walnut Handguard & Pistol Grip.  To cap it off, it is paired with wood finished SS Cheek Rest (UV stablized, simulated wood powdercoat finish) for strength and durability.  The complete rifle is finished with H-Series CERAKOTE with custom blended "Parkerized Green Steel & Cosmoline" theme finish matching that of the M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, 1903A3, etc.

If that’s true they should have made the barrel longer. I had a $500 PLR-16 with a 9.2” barrel that was accurate at the ranges you would be using a SBR. With manufactures offering AR Pistols that don’t require the NFA drama; I would want go that route.

Isn’t there someone making real wood AR furniture?

      In today’s entirely predictable outcomes, the ATF has begun arresting folks who bought Glock autosears off of Wish.com. How they didn’t see this coming from a mile away, I don’t know. If anyone reading this was dumb enough to make this mistake, I’d get on figuring out how to get rid of it in a way that the ATF might take mercy on you. At least do it for your dog’s sake

      I have a spare stripped upper to go with my TGO billet lower and have always intended to build an upper to match my 18” upper. For a couple of years now, I’ve gone back and forth as to whether I should do a 14.5” barrel with a pinned flash hider to avoid the cost and hassle, or go the SBR route and go with something like a 10.5” barrel.  
      Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve researched the process. Is it still a painful and time consuming process?

      There are a couple of new products but I'm going to focus on this one.   

      The AAC Jaeger 30.   MSRP $449.   Sounds awesome.   A very affordable can rated for 300 win mag and smaller.

      Everything sounds amazing until you get to that aluminum mono core.   I'm very curious how long that would last shooting 300 win mag through it.
