Yeah it seems the original plan never is the way it ends up but that's because we figure things out along the way, improving the "plan"! The important thing is that the initial plan doesn't paint you in a corner. That's one reason I do things like you do and start with a stripped lower. Once I get the lower built, plans for the upper seem to fall in place naturally.

exactly ... why I enjoyed this AR section over any others. If I had bought an AR first I would have been royally pissed when I found out how easy it is to assemble one! The rebuild is more about reliability/use issues than anything else. I couldn't be happier with how she functions and shoots now ... but mud/rain/snow/abuse are realities of life ... my battle rifle is NOT a safe queen

Mine is a Stag Mdl-1. Looks a little different now. Is that a PRI MSTN muzzle break? How you like it?

I don't know if that is the exact model but it is similar looking ... I hate it! I only have it because when I purchased the upper I was still living in NY. That is one of the items that will be getting changed out with v2.0

There should be a name on top and/or bottom. Looks are one thing. How does it shoot? I think there are a few with that profile. Jerry's, PRI-MSTN, Beenie I think. Try timing it before you call it quits.Name:  Roxienow.jpg

Looks great dog. I definitely understand changing plans as you go. My rifle is slightly different from my original plans, and I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.

the stock is a CAA adjustable with cheek riser. It is a nice stock but for someone my size it is just a little too small. For a precision stock I would lean towards the Magpul PRS and for an adjustable battle stock I may give the Voltor EMOD stock next.

So here's a little update on the my STAG AR15 -
1. I had her put her all together,
Attachment 18008

she sat like this - shamefully - because I have not had time to get out and shoot her.

2. Then I got some new parts,
Attachment 18009

some of which I didn't like and some which were not needed. So I got smore.

3. So now I have her finished and ready to shoot,
Attachment 18010
Attachment 18011
Attachment 18012

Now I just need you all to be a little more patient with me since I wont get to the range until Labor Day weekend. I picked up 200rds of 3 manufacturers to do the break in and fine tuning.

I work on guns,but have only dabbled in ARs. How hard is it to put these things together, and get it right, head spacing and stuff like that? I am assuming that all parts are probably milspec. Are they all put together the same? Didn't carry an M16, just a 45, so I didn't really have one of my own take one apart. Was assigned to weapons platoon, so I can do M-60.
