Default 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.

Nice. My Spikes Midlength Upper should be arriving the day after X-mas.

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.
