Well the parts are off to WMD for coating. Now I have 4-5 weeks to hurry up and wait. I was planning on using a 3 1/2 lb single stage Timney in this build, but when in a local gun shop today picking up a dust cover kit I came across one of WMD's NiB-X coated fire control groups. For the price I just could not pass it up. I then ordered a JP enterprises 3 1/2 lb trigger spring kit for it. the NiB-X Trigger group just fits the theme for this build perfectly, so I'll give it a try. Hey if I don't like it I'll pull it out and drop in the Timney.

........Oh and another thing. After I got home from work I ordered the Reaper hydro coated Magpul UBR stock and vertical grip. So this makes my decision easy. As soon as the carbon fiber Lancer LCH5 hand guard gets in, I will be sending it off along with the Troy backup sights, pistol grip, scope and scope base to be hydro coated to match. I can hardly wait to have a table full of completed parts in front of me! It will be like Christmas morning. Heck it had better not take until Christmas!
