Default My 3rd build

This time one for my 8 year old son who has been helping me pick out his parts aside from the extra parts I had sitting around from my other two builds.
Here we have a Surplus Ammo & Arms lower that I painted the symbols on, My son commented on others he had seen with it.



A lower parts kit from Sherluk I got this with a full AR-15 kit I bought at a gun show, I already had a DPMS parts kit



Here are a couple more parts, From top to bottom, An Aero Precision assembled upper, Model 1 Charging handle via MidwayUSA, BCG from jeepcreep927 here and finally an adjustable buttstock from a PCF lower.

Things are coming along nicely, everything fits well.





My biggest issue I had was with the front pivot detent pins, It was difficult to get in as usual, But I tried a few times, Then I noticed that the detent pin wouldn't go in far enough to let the pivot go into the hole, By at least 1mm, I gave the spring a little trim and I was able to get the detent pin in.

Finally things are about to come together.

And we have a happy kid!



Looking around and asking my son what he would like for a barrel and hand guard, I will be looking for a 16" barrel with the two piece hand guard, RRA has a nice barrel kits that are equal to or cheaper than me going with one of the Green Mountain Barrels along with all the other pieces needed, Like a gas block and tube, etc..
Unless you all know something I don't about barrels and other ancillary parts.

What a great project for you and your 8 year old son, VitSports6! Thanks for sharing...

Great project. I bet your kid is ecstatic.

My son (3) says, "I wanna get big and strong so I can shoot daddy's guns!"

No, He is pretty good about that, I am usually sitting down on the computer five feet from him and don't allow any of that, He does holler a booya! or "you want some of this" from time to time, He really only uses the head set when he plays with his friends.
