"Finished" the build a few days ago and thought that I would post pics of the end result. picked up 3 mags before the craze, got 2 for christmas, so I'm done with black rifles until prices level back out.

Very nice! Look forward to seeing you break it in in a week or two.

Thanks, I've never been able to hit crap with an AR, we'll see how this one goes.

Nice build, sputnik1988! And nice timing to get it done just before the panic set in.

My last build is very much like that, with lots of PSA parts. My upper is the lighter profile midlength, looks like yours is too. I like the pencil barrel but this one is almost as light. PSA sure makes it easy to save money.
