The texture on the grip gives it some character. Looks great.
How are you going to top it off?
Original plan was to build it as a 7.62x39 upper so I could shoot the same ammo as my AK. However the wife got me a few 556 pmags so it looks like I will go with what I fan find for the time being.
I think your wife saved you a lot of grief, 5.56 is the way to go.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
