I took the leap
 
I have been thinking of buying an AR for the past year, but other things needed attention. I would just move it into the 5 year plan. After Fridays tragedy I moved the purchase up to Sunday. I started reading and stopped by the local Gunshop to look and maybe buy. I talked to someone that was honest, he said buy off the Internet and save some money.
I found on gunbroker a spikes tactical mil spec complete upper. I bought it and a complete lower. I can't wait to get them and post some pics. Well it's bedtime.

Awesome! They make great Christmas presents. What lower are you using?

Nice job man. My current build (my third and final) is a Spike's build. Ordered more parts for it this morning so now the wait begins. :-)

its really personal preference but turn that mount around and get that red dot out in front of you more it will give you a better window when shooting with both eyes open, By the way nice stick you have there

Thanks for the tip. Doing that would help give room for a 3x magnifier. I just started looking into them. Thanks again.
