Yea, it turned out pretty much exactly how I wanted it. It's not complete yet, there is a new magpul acs-l stock in FDE coming as well as a gunfighter charging handle, plus my optics should arrive tomorrow, but here is what I have so far

Sorry about pic quality, only have my phone to take em with.

Specs:
PSA 16" 1:7 chrome lined barrel
Low profile mid length gas system
MI T15 hand guard
PSA BCG
Magpul MBUS (front and rear)
Delton stripped lower
PSA LPK
Magpul MOE grip
Magpul MOE stock (getting switched for the acs-l for a little more substance)
Magpul AFG (I went with gen1, I like the rounded sides for my grip style)
Magpul BAD lever
Magpul trigger guard
Harris swivel 6-9" bipod
VTAC enhanced 2 point sling
Magpul ASAP plate

Have a 4-16x40 piece of awesome vortex glass coming tomorrow with a Burris P.E.P.R mount as well as a Primary arms micro that's going to mount to a scope mounted rail segment. Should be right around 1 to 2 o'clock and a slight can't of the weapon should change my line of sight from the glass to the micro... We will see!

Can't wait to shoot her, she came out exactly like I pictured her..... Simply beautiful. Now time to rough her up!

Todd, that is one nice looking firearm. Well done!!! I'll post pics of mine in my thread as I go along. I'd make videos, but that'd be like Helen Keller directing traffic.

Seriously? You mean other than the stroking of anything, quality or not, as long as the manufacturer of said product pays up? I could go on but that should be more than enough in the eyes of anyone looking for real unbiased information.

What bias do I hold? A bias for quality? FO SHO

I would never push crap for a dollar, ask my boss. I get "talked to" all the time at work for not reaching sales "goals". I refuse to talk people into something that doesn't fit their needs. It's called integrity.

Easy there guys, I like both forums and would like an disagreement you two have discussed elsewhere of you wouldn't mind... call it a personal favor. I want nothing to detract from the beauty of the new pictures I have to upload! These are two sets of pictures, the first is the set from this morning before I went to the range. These are my rifle with the new vortex diamondback on it. Here they are!

(updated stats and weight coming with the next set of pictures/post)
