I finally broke down and built one

Anderson manufacturing am-15 lower
Psa lower build kit
Ptac 16" 5.56 NATO 1:9 twist heavy barrel upper with 12" Midwest industry hand guard
Magpul mbus gen 2 flip up sights

I have a couple things that are still being shipped and I will post a pic of it completed when the stuff gets here.

Let me know what you think

first of all nice looking build! very nicely done.

second, welcome to the forum. stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello to everyone and tell us a bit about yourself.

I like it.

Welcome.

Very nice. I just got into building myself. Damn if it ain't addictive. Finished my second lower build last night, already planning my third. I will likely go with an Anderson lower. Used Delton on first two.

I've been obsessed with checking PSA's deals everyday. I think that's part of their business strategy!! Also use JoeBob's, their shipping is usually two days as opposed to 2-3 weeks.

Thanks, it will look better when the rest if my parts get here. I only shot 1 round through it so far I'm saving ammo to sight it in once my optic gets here.

Psa is the only reason I built one I got my lower for $80 lower build kit for $87 and upper for $415.

If you think BRD (black rifle disease) is bad try retro BRD;)

It's 100x worse, you plan build 3-4 before #1 is done:eek:

Sputnik. What do you mean BRD? I am on build 14 and have not contacted it!

string1946 01-22-2014 12:58 PM

It looks good. I started my 6th lower build yesterday and found out the lower parts kit I had was missing the bolt catch buffer and I had to order one from Brownells. Part 92 cents, shipping $7.95.
