As much as I would have liked to build, I bought a complete rifle and added stuff. Next time I might build a 2nd AR in .308.
Mine is a Lewis Machine & Tool CQB MRP 16" 5.56. It's a black gun, It just looks almost lightly camo'd in the pic 'cos I played around with the editing....I actually shot 3 images a stop apart and combined them into an HDR image and went from there. I realize the 'scope is way too much glass for the 5.56/223 system, but it was on sale for cheap, it got more than decent reviews, holds zero perfectly so far and works very well in general. Put it this way...I don't care, I am having a lot of fun with it and that's all that matters.
The additions/mod's so far are.........
Geiselle SSA combat trigger
Tango Down Stubby foregrip
Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20X50 riflescope
Burris P.E.P.R 'scope mount
Magpul ASAP sling mount and Magpul MS2 sling
Vortex SPARC red dot sight
Magpul Extended Trigger Guard (which I have not fit yet)
Later as I can afford it I will buy better optics. But really, bottom line the Simmons and Vortex have worked very, very well for me for the money. A shooting buddy I go out a lot with has the much more expensive Aimpoint PRO red dot and with general use he has no obvious or evident advantage over me. Of course I am not going to submerge my Vortex to 150' underwater and I realize the Aimpoints are top shelf. I just cannot afford one. I like Vortex as a company though. I dropped my SPARC and dented the eyepiece quite badly. It held zero dead nuts in subsequent shoots and later Vortex replaced the entire sight free of charge even though it was my fault.
I really like your image.
