So I decided to build an AR after randomly picking up a Troy rail on a forum. Once I had that I figured it was only right to build an AR around it. After a bit of research and envisioning what I wanted to build I started to figure out what I was going to order.
I knew my first requirement was to build it with quality parts as a SHTF battle rifle. Not that it will probably ever be used as such, but I wanted to know it would stand up! I put it together last night and finished it up today. Hope to get out and shoot it a bit tomorrow to check it's function.
The only other thing I wanted was to be able to have a sliding stock. Being in CT I needed the lower to be a pre-ban. The good thing with this is I also got a threaded barrel, flash hider and a bayonet lug if I wanted one.
I found a pre-ban Olympic SGW forged lower and traded a S&W revolver for it. Everything else came together and I have what you see now! I absolutely love it. The only changes I plan to eventually make are a real Aimpoint Micro T-1 and then a Surefire light.
