Nice man! Its a lot easier than it seems to build your lower, however the one part that i had trouble with was the front takedown pin, or the pivot pin. That took a friend and I about an hour to do, hit me in the eye 1 time as well.

Still haven't shot her though, waiting on some mags + ammo, surprisingly expensive, i did not factor them into the price when planning my gun xD

Oh believe me, we used everything from razor blades to credit cards, the cards ended up working, but i did not know of the bag method, would have saved us some searching time xD

I post them by putting it on photobucket first, then after I upload it, I copy the image link at the bottom and simply paste it in here.

And now that I'm done with her AR I can concentrate on my Savage Lapua 338 which kicks some major a$$ I have it scoped out to 3/4 of a mile trying to get the Brass Kings out of Michigan to make me a round that will break the 1 mile mark. I have a case off 300g subsonic hollow points talk about snap hit a wild bore close to 350- 400 damn near took it's head off with a vital shot at 940 yards I'll post the Lapua as my profile pic
