I will try to remember to take a close up in the morning when I have some outdoor light. The fit is really good in my opinion. I had the big full length Midwest on there before and all you see is the flash hider. I love the smooth feel, but wanted just a small section of rails on the end. The TJ was the best choice. I'm still trying to get used to the shorter length. Not sure if I like the shorter guard and seeing that much more of the barrel. Maybe I'm just so used to not seeing any barrel at all.

Very nice indeed. Great looking first build.

Not usually a fan of different colors on ARs, but I like your color choices. Subtle yet apparent.
