    Default SI Commando and Dewey Crowe

    I have had a pistol lower sitting around since I SBR’d another lower for an older SI 10”upper. So ordered up a Commando upper a couple weeks ago so I could put this unused lower back in action. Seems like a well built unit and look forward to trying it out and sighting it in. A set of five 20rnd FDE Lancer mags will complement this little beast.

    Also during scamdemic I gathered up parts floating around and ordered up some of the cheapest junk I could find to assemble a Fudd Dewey Crowe Special. I think I have about a total of $350 in this thing. This also needs a test run to sight in. Right now waiting for a Rhodesian baby poop camo kit to come in to paint it up. Picked up a batch of 20rnd mags to camo up too.

    I think Dewey will surprise you.

    For the love of 8 pound 5 ounce NASCAR Baby Jesus. Why?
    I carry two kinds of trauma kits. One for fixing it and one for causing it.

    Gonna assume that was for the Fudd?

    Yeah it ranks like the last girl at the party, but will still go bang. Just a fun little side project with leftovers, cheap parts, and a cheap lower I picked up a few years ago. The most expensive part besides the barrel is probably the SI Kompressor on it, hahaha.

    Another friend made the same comment when I told him about my quest to build a cheap riffle with leftovers. He laughed and said it could possibly turn out to be a good shooter. Im guessing you might have some A2 carry handle sight zeroing experience? Might hit you up for any tips or tricks.

    Once I get it zero'd, maybe Ill do a side by side comparison with one of my SI upper'd rifles to the difference between $2k rifles and a blob of parts.

    Gonna side with Papa on this one. As long as there aren't any shit tier parts made of garbage it has a good chance to be a decent gun.

    Dewey looks like a fun project, will be interested in your range report.

    My bet is the Dewey will be decent although no where near the S.I piece. I'd be interested to see how things turn out!

    Love the commando bro! And I agree with the others about the Dewey crowe rifle. I think you will easily be able to get your moneys worth out of that weapon...
