    I finally got around to building out one of my GCO lowers...

    5.45x39 Adams Arms piston upper with a Voodoo barrel. I love that cartridge. Can't wait to shoot it!

    Just curious, why did you choose that caliber? Expecting Red Dawn, and will need to raid commie ammo dumps for supplies?

    I like the caliber, it has very good terminal ballistics and ammo is cheaper than 5.56.

    Yes I know the price has gone up... But fortunately for me I am sitting on enough of it to last me for some time.

    I have an AK-74 and fell in love with the caliber.

    Looks good, I've wanted to do 5.45 also but parts seem to be getting harder to find and more expensive than they were. I enjoy my ak74's and have about 15 cans of surplus ammo.

    The Commie cartridge in the American platform. What's next? Dogs and cats living together?! :sly:

    Just kidding; looks like a cool rifle.

    Are you using standard 5.56 P-mags for 5.45?

    I love 5.45 too. I run it in two Bulgy side and a Polish.

    Yeah the rifle is still available, but the upper is out. I put in for an email when they get the 5.56 back in stock.

    I have plenty of AR's that's why I just wanted the upper. I'm debating on cutting down the number of AR's I have since they are modular making caliber changes easy and I really only shoot my short barreled rifles.
