Your BCG is an Adams. The upper could be anything. There are two major companies that do forgings and sell to distributors and manufacturers that just stamp their logos on them. Not too important, the barrel and BCG are more important to verify quality. Judging by the rest if the parts , I would hope its a decent barrel

Default What did you do to your AR today?

I'm in the process of building my first AR. With nowhere near the budget for a DD or BCM, my plan was to build it piece-by-piece.

But, while ogling gun wares at my LGS, I came across an Anderson Manufacturing complete lower for under $200 OTD. Couldn't pass that up.

Now, I'm saving up for the chrome-lined upper. PSA seems like a good place to start.

Not much, but colored my lower in.

Little mag stipple and new lighter rail. Really understanding the ounces equal pounds, pounds equal pain thing.... Never knew an AR could be this light. Now if I could only sell this Aimpoint Comp M2.......

If you mean Mid-South Guns in Wagram and not Warick I wouldn't be worried about quality. It is hands down the best shop I have been to in the state. I haven't been since I graduated college but I need to get back down there. Sucks the guy told you it was a RRA though.

I took my new Sig M400 Enhanced ODG out of the box. Put the back site on it and read the book. Next I will clean it and then shoot it. I've been waiting for this day for awhile!
