Well, everything went together flawlessly CHL_Chris.
For everything I bought it saved me a few bucks... For example, the barreled upper would've been like 424 for the barrel, upper, front sight, gas tube, flash hider and delta ring, so I saved time not having to take off all those things to put on what i wanted, plus i saved like, 30 bucks maybe?
It went together in about 45, maybe 50 minutes MAX. Everything timed perfectly on the second try(tried lining up the anti rotation screw hole with the gas tube lol.)
Pictures will follow... HOPEFULLY tomorrow, but I've been busy with attempting to maintain the semblence of a life lol.

I can't wait to see your pics!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
