Good start. I'm sure an SBR and maybe a suppressor are in my future. Providing we're allowed after November...

A suppressor is part of the plan but the boss lady says I better be getting some other things first. Lol

Actually the only reason why all my pins are Geissele pins, is because all my trigger assemblies are made by Geissele.

Alright the lower build kit came in the mail today, PSA took a little longer to ship than I'd like but that's no real complaint cause I've waited longer. So when we got back tonight I started reading the stickies, watching YouTube videos, and gathering tools (by the way the stickies are great). After a little frustration and a couple of lost and recovered detents and springs I got her put together, and function checked on my other upper. Not bad for my first build if I do say so myself!

No Jon not broken pins, this is what i was talking about

Just be careful to, and extra LPK laying around just might transmogriphy in to a fully built and functional AR..
