Thanks I went with Daniel Defence. For the extra $15.00 with the Magpul trigger guard its worth the comfort of knowing you have one of the best.

Gonna start my first build very soon. Probably take me most of the year to gather everything. This is going to be a Big Bore for HawgHuntin the upper will end up being a 458 Solcom or 50 Beowulf thinkin of a PSA Del-Ton or Stag stripped lower to start Looking for opinions and thoughts

Great! The stripped lower can be found anywhere...doesn't need to be the biggest name brand. At $3 a round for 458, and I can't even find 50 Beowulf, are you sure? Is that perhaps overkill for hogs? Your rifle, though.

You should start a new thread to collect ideas, rather than asking for opinions in this thread.

.
Hogs can go as high as 3-500 lbs, so in my opinion, a big @$$ bullet might not be a bad thing . It can also double as a shtf gun

I've just never seen a hog that big. Wow! I'm always in favor of bigger is better (and more humane if the kill is quicker).

Looking good!

I have to admit, good AR tools are priceless. When building mine I bought a mag block, AR wrench, Delton ring puller, punch set, etc. Look at it this way -- once you have the tools, its very easy to keep building them Im on build #2 now.

Great to see another enthusiast building! Enjoy it!

Ok, I was getting excited reading. One question though. The match up of Lowers and Uppers. Is there any machine work involved, is it a one lower fits all uppers, certain brands fit better with each other, keep it all uniform with the brand name, or What?

A mil-spec upper and lower will fit, no machining required. Some fit better than others. Finish on most is close but not always perfect. Cant offer much beyond that.

Only caveat is with Colt "large pin" receivers. Not so common anymore but they are out there and will not mate properly with standard pin receivers.
