Thanks for the help and answering all my somewhat stupid questions I learned alot in a short time on this site. Here are a couple pics of my gun. I am going to keep all the original parts for my SP1 to turn it back to its original glory when I have the dough to build a carbine.
Still trying to find a decent price on a VLTOR EMOD A5 stock kit for this gun. That might have to wait a bit on that one. Forgot to list the goodies.
-Surefire 2 peice handguard
-Magpul MAID grip
-Magpul sling mounts
-Magpul M2 sling
-BMC Gunfighter charging handle
-BMC extractor kit
I think thats it. I also replaced the firing pin, gas rings and cam pin. Should be ready to roll now! I cant wait to take it out.
Very nice! Glad to hear you'll return it to original down the road...
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

When you have the money? I would return my SP 1 to it's original condition since it is essentialy a collectors piece. And buy me another AR-15 to do what ever with. I have been offered in excess of $1400 dollars for mine in it's original state. Even after the Brady Ban took a dump! 'Thank God!" They were bringing in excess of $1600.00+ at that time. Mine is 100% original and will remain that way. I you do change it outas mentioned it is imperative that you maintain all the original parts to change it back.
