Default Second Build Halfway Done

Just finished building the lower for my second build. This is my brothers gun that he's having me build for him. Going to be very similar to my first one except for barrel and stock. Surplus A&A lower, RRA LPK, Magpul MOE+ grip, Magpul ACS stock, Pmag all in dark earth.

Purchased some roll pin punches and they were worth the cost!

Looks good. The damn things are addictive once you build one, aren't they?

Heck yeah. Especially considering most parts are inexpensive one at a time. So $50 here, $200 there is a lot easier than $1000 in one hit.

Actually thinking about buying like 3 or 4 lowers once I get my FFL.

This is what the wife refers to as trying to fly under the radar, then crashing and burning.

Thanks. Took her up to a private gun club on Monday that my FIL is a member of. Shot great, just waiting on my optic.

When you get some free time, holler at me some weekend and I will bring out the 22s and we can shoot at my house.

That's a JSE Surplus custom upper with a YHM Todd Jarrett competition series handguard.
