Default FInally got my stripped lower tonight

I have been gone for a week at a trade show and waiting for my stripped lower , Of course it came while I was gone but I picked it up tonight and got her all put together in about 45 minutes, Took my time and did everything right , Ran about 8 rounds of electrical tape around the receiver to keep from scratching it up when putting in the bolt catch roll pin . Turned out perfect , I was a little disappointed in the trigger on this one its not quite as smooth as my other AR but its not terrible either , Im sure it will get better after putting some rds down range . I can honestly say its a little intimidating when you dump all that stuff out with all those springs , detents, levers ,etc but its really pretty simple once you get going on it . The key is taking your time and being careful driving pins in and having fun getting to know all the internals and how they work .

The wife has put the brakes on me for a while 5 new guns in the last 90 days. Guess that means stock piling more ammo for now its a little cheaper anyway

looks like you went from 0-2 in like 2 months. Does this mean you'll have a stable off 13 by years end?

o.O


LoL

LOL anythings possible , I think another stripped lower may be in order for that brutal comment she said about having too many guns
Still one of my favorites I recently got, well the wife bought it for me anyway , Dead accurate too, I shoot pretty fair with it out to 300 yards keeping them in a 2" group at that distance

Well it magiacally eats steel cased ammo just like my other one , I went out over my lunch today and was trying to get some rounds thru it before I get the scope sighted in 100% . After shooting about 20 rds thru it and getting it on paper I realized Im going to have to move my scope back about 1" for a better fit and feel and I forgot my tools she shoots great I cannot complain about anything. Now to get everything set where its comfortable and get it zeroed in . I have only ran Tula thru it so far , I figured if I break it in on that it should shoot everything else fine .

Oh no, another low cost lower receiver! I bet it works, or will work just fantastic! It's always dangerous to gun run past the wife - she'll call you on it...mine, I just go hide, ask her not to beat me....lol
