    Hello all,

    I just recently finished up a build for a friend. He was looking for a basic set up, and this is what we ended up with:

    Noveske N4 Light 14.5" NON NFA barrel w/vortex flash hider
    Palmetto State Armory Lower
    Palmetto State Armory MOE LPK
    Palmetto State Armory H2 buffer and spring
    Magpul MOE midlength handguards
    Magpul UBR stock
    Magpul MBUS Gen II
    4 Magpul PMAGs (30 round)
    1 Magpul PMAG (20 round)
    2 USGI mags (30 rounds)
    4oz bottle of Slip2000
    Hoppe's Bore Snake

    I got everything from Palmetto State Armory and DSG Arms. With LE discounts the total was $1,255 for everything.

    Very nice build you have and you have done a good job putting it together and selecting the parts. And your pictures are very good too.

    Great looking rifle? How do you like the UBR? I have been thinking of one of these for my rifle, but don't want to spend the dough, and find out afterwards I wasted my money.

    I personally love the UBR. I have 2 UBR's on 2 of my rifles. My friend (who I put this one together for) tried out different stocks and decided he wanted a UBR, so that is what we went with. It's a little "rear end" heavy but it makes the front seem very light.

    A few hours ago I order an MOE lower build kit, a Classic build kit and a stripped lower from Palmetto... this is my first attempt, and seeing a good-looking one completed makes me happy :embarassed:

    Mad....the Palmetto stripped lowers are great! I bought 2 of them myself, and they are just sitting in my safe awaiting parts. I put this one together without a hitch. You'll be a happy camper for sure!

    Very nice rifle. Looks clean, sharp and not a bunch of junk hanging all over.

    That eases my mind a bit... I don't know anything about them, and I was hoping they were decent :wavey:

    Know anything about Surplus Arms & Ammo? My FFL stocks their stripped lowers for $89...

    Hmmm I do not. As long as the lower is "in-spec" I don't think you can go wrong. I don't really mind what the lower/roll mark is, as long as it goes together. I got 3 of the Palmetto stripped lowers when they were 64.95 shipped a piece a few months ago. I just took a chance on them for that price, and they work just fine for me.

    If they go down to $65 again, I'll order three myself...

    I'll do more research on the SAA receivers. Thanks for the info :wavey:

    Can you show that tac weld on the Vortex? The one on the Ranier Arms website is all discolored and nasty... looks like 4 days after a smallpox vaccination.

    I assume that's a heavy coat of CLP on the front end as well?

    The tac weld looks a little discolored but not booger'd up. I don't have the rifle anylonger, I built that one for a friend. I'll see if he can take some pics for ya.

    That was right out of the box, and it had a light coat of some sort of oil. We zeroed it last week. For a plain jane Noveske, I was very impressed.

    That's cool... I'd appreciate it!

    I kind of want one, for no reason.... although now that I think of it, there's a niche to be filled between my 11.5" and my Noveske Light Recce...
