Just what does a "3 gun" AR need, as opposed to an AR set up for other types of competition? Or maybe home defense, or LE use, SWAT, or....?

Bling, Chicks and 3 gunners love the bling.

I haven't been on here for months, but now I'm here I can't help but throw in my two cents.  I agree with Evans and JMack regarding uppers.  I think the Odin 02 handguard is impossible to beat. 

My experience has been that a heavy scope will do more to ruin the feel of a rifle than anything else.  Notwithstanding new offerings from Nightforce and Leupold, I think Kahles is still the best high end 3-gun scope.

I shot a rifle a few months ago with a Burris RT-6.  If you're trying to not break the bank, that is a hard deal to beat.

Put some money into the trigger.  By far the best trigger for 3-gun (in my opinion) in the AR Gold with the flat blade.  I say that because the first time I went into a plate rack and a spinner with one I realized I was unnecessarily hammering the shit out of the trigger.  I had been running a Hyperfire with the big pad for awhile, and you don't realize how hard you are jerking the trigger.  With the narrow flat blade, which you can set as light as you want, you feel how hard you are pulling/jerking the trigger because it presses into the pad of your finger.  It has improved my ability to shoot quickly and accurately.  When I pick up the rifle and start shooting, I can immediately tell if I'm way too keyed up and am hammering the trigger.  Unfortunately, that doesn't always translate into settling down and doing it right, but at least I know I should.

Good luck.  See you at the next match.

Oh man, this is a great post. Thank you. This is some good data to consider. Alas, my upper project is paused for a few. Rep, for sure. I will refer back to this thread, most definitely.

Looks like you have removed the IGT calendar?  Yes?
We just did an update to the site, if someone wants to take on the calendar I will dig in tomorrow and figure out what it takes to get it back.

Right now I'm a one man non-IT show doing the best I can to keep the lights on around here.
