Default New here - new to AR

Hi guys,

I am new to this web forum and also new to AR. I got my first one last month.

I have numerous handguns and other rifles and shotguns. There are few firearms I haven't owned or shot at some point in time.

Here are some pics of my new girl....

Impressive looking stick. 5.56 I presume? Looks like a Magpul adjustable stock and is that 20" bull barrel you got there? Lother by any chance?

JD

EDIT: Answered after I had posted. HBAR, 20"

Yep, 5.56 and it is indeed a Magpul 6 position adjustable stock.

Also an Osprey 3X9X42 Red/Green Optic and Hellfire X-80 light kit.
