plan on taking it out to the range this sunday
i'll have a range report in afterwards
thanks to everyone that helped out
(JD, slo, and some others who i'm sorry i've forgotten)

Congratulations! That's a great accomplishment for your first time out.

Under $700USD is a great savings. You got some quality parts AND you got to assemble it yourself so you know how the damn thing works. Excellent job.

I am looking most forward to your range report.

However, a word of caution - Once you build your first one, they get damn addictive after that. :D

Ok well i went to the range today and put 50 rounds through it and zeroed it out
at first it was a little low to the left but with a few adjustments...
the last three shots were a beauty
:D

Dillinger 09-14-2008 10:56 PM

Very nice Junho - That is "Minute of Bad Guy" in any country on the planet. Looks like you built yourself one fine AR there brother.

50 rounds through it - Any problems?

How did it feed and eject?

Any problems getting the brass out and away in time to feed the next round from the mag?

How was the recoil?

All in all - how do you feel about your first build?

JD
