I've built a few AR15s for friends and customers but never personally had the funds to build one of my own. That is about the Change, ran into some money from selling/trading a violin. I've been done quite a bit of research and contemplating on what exactly I want.
Originally I had a delton m4 rifle kit on backorder, I came across JSE surplus and instantly changed my mind because from a few ftf members informed me on their great quality, service and they have awesome deals. After said conversation I immediately ordered a JSE M4 upper with dti cl heavy barrel (which they had in stock
From there I also came up with the idea to make it into a Punisher AR which is very common, I know but I have been a huge pubisher since I was a kid. So far I have ordered the punusher charging handle, dust cover and already have the take down pins with the skull on them. I also have set up to get my Charles Daly Defense lower (got a deal from lgs) to get laser engraved with the punisher skull along with 'Sic Vis Pacem Parabellum' on the blank side of the mag well.
As for everything else I have selected a Daniel defense lower parts kit and magpul stock, grip, foregrip, vertical grip and trigger guard.
I have everything needed to get it together except the upper and lower parts kit. Hopefully it ships out this week like expected. It's going to be a long road until I deem it finished. I will keep you all updated and have plenty of questions thanks ftf!
