Default Finally a member of the build club.

Yes, yes I am.

Started with a Del-Ton lower and then bought a 20" kit and made a few changes to include a
YHM Diamond series free floating hand guard,
YHM flip up front sight,
YHM Phantom Flash hider
and an ERGO grip.

I was trying to resize it. It was huge.

And the puny little red dot is going to have to do until finances allow.

Very nice Troy, Glass’s AR is a Delton and she loves it. I think you will be very happy with it. What kind of glass are you going to put on it?

I like it. You added some good quality accessories to an already good unit. Job well done Sir!!

All you need is a YHM fold down rear sight ( or Troy Ind, or one of various others ) and a sling.

Looking forward to seeing how she shoots.

Now the million dollar question - how hard was the assembly on that lower?

Very pretty build! Why, that rifle has more than a few similarities to my own, what with the 20" barrel, YHM free float, stock, grip, DTI parts, cheap red dot etc.
