Default Built my first ar 15

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

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.

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

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.
