My first home build. This one started out as a Tactical Machine 80% forged unfinished lower that I had the fire control pocket milled out and the whole kit n kaboodle anodized black.

It then got a PSA lower parts Kit (lpk)
Yankee Hill Forged upper receiver
Yankee Hill lo pro gas block
Noveske KX3 muzzle device
7.5" Heavy barrel, pistol gas 1x9, chrome lined DPMS barrel, 5.56 nato chamber, phosphated
VLTOR CAS-V mid length handguards
Rock River Arms Chromed BCG
VLTOR front sight
Magpul Bad Lever
Geissele SDC
Spikes ST-T2 buffer
CAA Side Saddle
Magpul ASAP
Magpul MIAD
Knights Armaments Winter Trigger Guard
Aimpoint Micro H1 4moa
Knights Armaments QD mount set to lower 1/3 co-witness.

6# 14 oz with RDS and mount
6# 8 oz without.



Some Notes on this build.

This was actually my first build. I still like the way it turned out and the way it looks. I've function tested over a hundred rounds of Tap 75 gr hollow points SD ammo and thats what sits in my magazines on the nightstand. If the Taps don't do it, the muzzle blast will.

The weak point of my build is the barrel, but there aren't many options for a 7.5" chrome lined barrel were avalaible then and still now. I have plans to make this a 8 or 9" 300 blackout with 220 to 230 grain subsonics for my BITNBS. (bump in the night boom stick) I have a 550 lumen cree P6 usually mounted on it but didn't weigh it for this test. That would makes this fine AR pistol heavier than my 16" RUC Carbine.
