Quentin that lower looks great, amazing finish.

Great job! Looks really good.

What is that on the side of your optics?

Yes, Charles Daly really did a nice job on their lowers. I got that one for my son-in-law for Christmas 2010 (he's from Harrisburg). I'm sorry to see them go out of business after decades of importing nice firearms (and building a very good AR for a few years).

They're very high quality, the lgs I got mine at has one more that I may have to snatch before someone else does

Not a bad idea man. Nice looking build too! You must be stoked to shoot it!
