Well, it is finally 'finished'. I still need a BCG for this rifle, but I have enough that I can borrow from another at this point. I still need a sling and optic as well. I decided to build something fun, and that could be changed easily in the future to an SBR when I finally become less lazy, and have more time. It fills a nice in between point of my 16'' AR and my 7.5'' AR pistol. It is a 11.5'' barrel with a pinned 5'' flash hider. I did this build some what slowly, spending $2-400 a month on pieces, and assembling where I could. Total is just under $1400 at this point. Lower: $658 USA Tactical stripped lower- 130 Lower parts kit- 36 Magpul ACS butstock- 130 Buffer tube kit- 51 Magpul Miad Grip- 36 Magpul BAD- 30 Enhanced trigger guard- 25 Timney Trigger 4lb skeletonized- 220 Upper: $730 USA Tactical stripped upper- 90 Forward assist- 16 11.5'' barrel- 170 5'' Flash hider- 25 Crush washer- 4 YHM 10'' FF rail- 140 YHM rail end cap- 21 Low-pro gas block- 35 Gast tube- 21 BCM charging handle (medium)- 45 Gear Sector hand stop- 48 PMag- 15 YHM iron sights- 100 I'm planning on going with a XPS2 Eotech, VTAC sling, and the ionbond BCG, which will bring the total to around $2k for this build. I have shot the upper on another lower and it functioned flawlessly. I have done the function tests on the lower, but have not had a chance to shoot it yet. That will probably be next weekend. So far, I am loving the Timney Trigger, and may purchase another for my 16'' AR. I would also like to say that 90% of these parts came from USA Tactical out of Statesville, as I prefer to support local small businesses. Sorry for the large pictures. I use photobucket for hosting, and it does not have a resize option.
