AR15 Mast

Post by emmalroc » Tue Dec 27, 2016 2:44 pm

Hi everyone!
I am in search of dimensions for a mast for my AR15. I understand that the 470 mast can be used in an AR15- in order to build the mast step I need the exact dimensions of the mast I plan on using. Does anyone have any suggestions on A) what type of mast to use if there is a better one than the 470, B) where to find one to purchase (preferably used for the lowest price), and C) where I can find the exact dimensions for the mast. Thanks and happy holidays!
Emma

PS- can I put an AR15 sail in a 470 mast?

The plans show the moments in X and Y. Any spar maker can recommend spars that fit those requirements.

Where are you located? US, Europe, Aus?

Then check Dwyermast.com. They ship all over the US and deal with amateur builders.
But it is easy to find a used set of spars for a 470, they are all over the place.

Great, thank you so much! I'll be sure to check the sight and I'm keeping my eye out for 470 sparring.
