Default Completed my first build

My first AR is a Rock River whick I have changed out some of the parts on. I decided in December to order another upper, primarily as a back up in case I had anything break. Well that plan went to hell. As soon as the upper arrived I knew that I had to build a second gun. So I quickly located and orderd all of the neccesary parts to complete my first build. I realize I could have saved alot of money had I built this six months ago, but what the hell. I have no regrets. Here are the parts that comprise my build....

* TRR15A3 16 Inch Upper with Superbull Diamond Cut Profile Barrel, YHM Long Free Float Diamond QuadRail Handguard (Came complete with BCG and charging handle)

* LRB Arms M15SA Stripped Lower - which I then proceeded to laser engrave my Pin-up artwork on)

* PSA Lower Parts Kit w/out fire control group (Came with OD green Magpul MOE grip and OD green enhanced trigger guard.

* OD green rail covers, Magpul CTR stock, Magpul MOE RVG

* Carbine buffer tube & spring with H2 buffer

* Timney 668-S 4lb single stage trigger

* KNS precision trigger and hammer pins

* YHM flip up sights

I can't believe how easy this was to build. And I'm affraid that it is highly addictive. I've already got another upper on order and my eye on a lower on Gunbroker!

Only part I'm changing out is the charging handle. I ordered the Rainier Arms Raptor Ambi charging handle.

Yeah. I can't wait to shoot it. Unfortunately the only rifle range in town sold out and closed last year, so now I have to drive an hour to some of my family's farm land just to shoot. Not complaining I like being able to get away from everything and get shoot some tannerite exploding targets which the local range did not allow. I just don't get to go as often as I like. I'll report back with how it performs as soon as I get a chance to let 'er rip.

Had to look that one up. That is a bad ass stock! I'll have to keep that one in mind for my next build.
