I am very pleased with how it looks. I showed my coworkers and they love it. I think I converted 2 more to AR 15's. with any luck it won't be to late.

Oh and one more thing. Getting a spikes is totally worth the wait. Can't wait to see it when it's together.

I agree. I'm trying to make the rifle a complete Spike's build. What I mean is, put as many Spike's parts on it as I can (without being ridiculous about it).

You don't hear of Spikes around here as much as you used to but they build a solid AR. PSA stole some of their bang-for-the-buck thunder so it's good to be reminded Spikes is out there and a smart choice. Nice rifles guys!

My other choice was a doublestar. I just got lucky with spikes.

Yeah, you did well. I'd take Spikes over Doublestar any day.

It will also as you stated in a previous thread fit a 3X magnifier as I run the 1X5X magnifier on mine.
