This evening I sprayed Tungsten Cerakote on the hand guard, upper/lower receiver & compact carbine stock assembly. Had the parts baking when I left the office. So tomorrow I should be able to put this bad boy together!

I LOVE all these cerakote finishes!
How reflective are they in daylight or bright environments?

Don't know if this counts, but just finished making a couple of tools for my AR15. Made a PIVOT PIN DETENT INSTALLATION TOOL and a PIVOT PIN DETENT DEPRESSOR for my AR. These things would cost $20.00 from Brownels. Guess I'm just a cheap skate. Made both tools from a couple of allen wrenches.

This will make my 4th full size rifle that is mine (3 of which I built)! I sold my first two builds, then took apart and repurposed my third build. So 7 builds so far.

Got some trigger time yesterday at my friends place in Indiana. Shot a hundred rounds through the 6.8 build upper. Also ran 500 rds through my testbed varmit rifle. POF roller cam tested very well. Average group dropped by 0.1 moa!
