Default Wifes Birthday Present

Built the wife her first AR-15 and gave it to her today for her Birthday. She also shot it this afternoon on the range. It is 100% Rock River Arms parts with Midwest Industries flip up rear sight and EOTech Model 512 Holographic Sight. We did not have to touch the iron sights at all and when we got the EOTech sighted in she put three rounds in the 4 inch target at 100 yards measuring a two inch group for he first time out! I think I have created an ammo monster! She advised we need to plan a day next week to spend the day on the Range! OH MY! Oh by the way it has here favorite color of Hardware to go with her favorite color of clothes. The picture does not do it justice but it is "PURPLE".

That's cool brother, looks good. I think I might do the same for my chick. She likes the purple muddy girl camo from Magpul. This way she will not complain when I keep buying ammo.

Wonderful gift for her, Sniper! Glad she likes it! A couple years ago I gave my wife an AR based on a Valkryie lower (her name is Val). At first she was lukewarm but now loves it.

Looks good. Do you plan on doing any color on the receivers?

I have thought about putting some color on it. My Fedex man does the work so I would probably have him do it if I get it done. Of course I may keep it as is so that if the SHTF in the future I can put it back to original hardware. Purple is not a cool tactical color to be concealed in the woods!
