    I’ve heard this as well. Something about it either being for lighter rounds or heavier rounds. If they can get the teething issues worked out I think it would be a pretty nice setup.

    I have a .224 Valkyrie build I did, I ended up using a craddock criterion 22" 1:7 twist and am able to skirt right below an MOA with some serious barrel break in time( cleaning after every 5 shots for roughly 80 or so rounds) with 88 gr factory Hornady loads, once I did this it started to tighten the groups up quite a bit. If I would have know what I know now, I would most likely go with a 1:6.5 twist as that seems to be getting the best results with the heavier loads. An ACR DMR in this round would be pretty awesome IMO

    I would definitely be down for this.

    If there’s some midlength barrels I could convert one. I’ve already designed a new piston for rifle length. I just need to have some made up.

    Killer man. Do you need to have some financial commitment from a certain amount of users? The .224 Valk seems like such an intriguing rifle. I have too many LR bolt guns right now and the ACR is my newest squeeze. I'd love to try it out on this platform.
    Do it or don't!

    Not really, I can do one offs. For custom jobs like that just ask for partial or full payment up front because it’s custom. I used to do the builds and pull the payment after but some dude ghosted on me leaving me with a conversion I couldn’t use.

    I'll step in here. I think that having a .224V ACR DMR would rock.

    I'm running the operation of the system through my head, and think that just having a mid length spun up might work for this. Depends on dwell time and such for the piston system.

    I wonder what the bolt and piston system stuff adds to the cost?

    A complete bolt is about 125-150 unless you can find a factory one.

    The gas system parts is over 400 dollars. I think it’s 450-500 from BM. I sell them for 400. You might get lucky and find a used barrel set to get the parts from for less.
