    Ok I have a .556 MVP and have been trying to get information on any upgrades available for them.
    So can anyone give me a web page that has a list and price sheet for whats available?
    I looked up Crosshair precision and what I get is a link on this site with no way that I can see to place orders.
    I sent a PM to Robert Lynch several weeks ago and have had no response.
    Anyone???

    Just saw this so you may have already found your answers. In case you have not, there is a good discussion of mag wells here. (modifications/ptg-metal-magwell-for-the-5-56mm-mvps)
    Also, I wrote up a review of my rifle and mods I performed in: modifications/my mvp 223 mods).
    I have the Tromix stuff and like it. I am debating buying and installing a timney trigger in my 223 mvp.
    Good shooting with your rifle.

    I forgot to say that next on my list is to remove the factory barrel and barrel nut, clean the threads, set the barrel back about .015", make two new barrel nuts, and pin the recoil lug. Then install the barrel, tighten to about barrel nut to 25 ft lbs, finish the chamber with a finish reamer, and test fire. If your rifle is like all others so far, the barrel nut is torqued with a machine at the factory so hard the spanner hole is distorted. Huge amounts of barrel nut torque are unnecessary on a bolt action rifle as a general rule. My two cents.
    Good shooting.

    Woodchucker. I am seriously considering it. I can make them in my shop and that is on my list of things to do. (sigh) My "things to do" list does not seem to get any shorter. When I get something done and mark it off, it seems something else gets added to the list the next day. lol. Always something to do.
    If there are two piece jam/lock barrel nuts available, I would take a look at them depending on the price.

    Woodchucker, sent you a private message but have not heard back from you. I will take one set of MVP 223 barrel jam nuts and one extended mag release. I "might" be interested in a heavy 223 barrel. Just let me know how much for the stuff and shipping and where to send the money. Thanks.
