Default Finished my first build

I was going for the retro look so I went DPMS oracle upper kit with the 3 prong flash suppresor. The Lower is a palmetto arms with Mia pow emblem on the side for those who never returned and for those who did but left part of themselves there . The wood stock came from precision arms and was a breeze to put on . Thanks for all of the advice from the board. Looking forward to my next one.

Not a big fan of the wood trimmings but it does look very nice. Congratulations ... now, how about a range report and how she shoots?

As a big fan of wood stocks and there "warmer" feel, I applaud you for doing something completely different. If there was a wood forend with a picatinny rail I'd probably do it myself. Congrats and please give us a range report as soon as you can!
