Default My first build.

Just got in from work at about 1:00 and couldn't resist the temptation to do a late night build.

The specs are as follows:

PSA mid-length, light profile premium upper
DPMS stripped lower
PSA MOE lower build kit.
I'll be ordering a BCG this week.

The build was not nearly as difficult as I expected and I have to thank Dillinger for his thread on building a lower, it helped me more than any video that I could find on Youtube.

There are many others to thank as well, you guys know who you are.

As for my level of satisfaction with PSA thus far, shipping is slow, but worth it.
On a bad note, they failed to send me a trigger guard at all, I'll have to shoot them an e-mail...

On a seriously awesome note, the accidentally sent me a CTR stock rather than a MOE.
Won't be my last build, thanks again guys.

I think you may be right, I intended this to be a decent quality budget build, hence the carry handle... Just caught myself looking at an EOTech 512.


I fear there is no cure, quickly approaching the $900 mark.

I'm in the middle of a build. Got my lower done now waiting for some more funds to free up for an upper. My budget build went from a $650 budget to close to $1000 already. I have $350 into my lower. Ill sure that number will go up again before this one is all said and done lol. There are just too many nice accessories to keep it under $1000. Either way its still a way better deal to build it yourself.

Yes it all starts with a simple, mid priced black rifle and only escalates into them multiplying and some turning into NFA items

Nice build Sputnik!

And nice upgrades with the DD BCG, CTR, MOEs, BFG sling and Noveske QD end plate.
