Good choice with the BCM kit/H buffer/CTR! I did two lowers that way and one with the CTR and PSA kit.

Glad to see the update!

Default Build pic update

Well, the BCM mil-spec buffer tube, spring, buffers (carbine, H,H2 & H3, these are all for troubleshooting later on) showed up along with my Magpul CTR mil-spec in black buttstock and castle nut wrench So, I spent all of a couple minutes and installed everything short of torqueing the castle nut, will do that later. The trigger group is on backorder I think... If nothing else, maybe I can find my upper parts and trigger group at Camp P. this year Looking forward to that! And here you go, my lower...
