It just keeps looking better!!!

It's funny, I've been eyeing those JP handguards the last few days...plotting my second build.

Thanks for fueling my BRD further

Jon,Don't worry about using Red loctite.If you ever need to remove it,a heat gun or hair dryer will loosen it's grip.

By the way,That's going to be a damn nice rifle when it's finished.

ive got a torch for such things. used it to remove the red loctite off the mounting screws on the larue spr mount. you gotta be insane to red loctite ring screws i would figure larue would know better

well its been kicking around since september of last year. wife got me a magpul PRS stock for my service match AR15 and its just not needed on that gun but the thought from her was good. ive been thinking about utilizing that stock somehow for a long time. i really like its look and feel.

AR15s have always been my favorite rifles and i dont really have a great precision type rifle so why not build one!! hard part was trying to find a match grade type reciever and you had one in stock from rainier arms. did a second order ffrom you for the LPK from RRA minus trigger pack and the timney single stage to go with it.

Got home from work today and there was a very nice surprise waiting for me. the krieger barrel showed up!!

its not as grey as the bead blasted finish of my rra/wilson national match barrel but it does take a lot of that annoying stainless shine off.



the low profile gas block that krieger makes if you ask for one with your barrel.



each krieger barrel is stamped with a serial number and twist rate just ahead of the chamber



nice machining on the crown. they do good work



everything together at last!!











its all together just in time for this weekend!! making ammo tomorrow and taking it out for its first shoot this weekend. i cant wait!!
