    I FINALLY got the upper from my 'smith today. This build has been a long time coming.


    Daniel Defense lightweight CHF 16" barrel (midlength gas)
    RRA midlength handguards
    PK Firearms A1 upper
    generic BCG (thanks internet, no BCGs anywhere)


    PSA Blem
    Fulton Armory A1 stock
    Geissele SSA-E w/ PSA LPK
    MOE grip
    20 round PMAGs


    3x mini ACOG (TA33)



    I absolutely love this rifle. It ran 100 rounds of Hornady 77 grain steel match today without a hiccup. The ACOG on the carry handle is freaking awesome. I heard SO many people say that it was horrible, but the transition from the irons to the ACOG is seamless, and I still get a good cheek weld. 100 yard shots are child's play. I can't think of a single thing that I'd change, we'll see w/ time. Every AR that I ever build will wear a Geissele trigger too. It's easily the equivalent to the nicest bolt-action trigger that I've fired.

    Very interesting setup you have there, OP. I'm kinda digging it, though.

    Thanks. I knew that accuracy, reliabilty and light weight were going to be my main concerns, so I tried to plan accordingly. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    I just have to love a guy who puts a $200 trigger in a $49 blemished lower under an A1 upper with a lightweight barrel, an A1 stock, and mini ACOG. It says,"I am building a rifle for me to keep at the ready. I give not a whit what others think because this rifle is mine. I built it to shoot bullets from, not to shoot pictures of. It is a tool and so am I".

    Great rifle!
