Thanks. All the parts (other than magazines, suppressor and optics) came directly from K-T so no fitting or mods were necessary and it probably took less than 15 minutes to install/swap everything. Also, the PLR will accept standard AR mags or suppressor/flash hiders and anything that will fit on a 1913 style Picatinny rail.
BTW, I am familiar with the AR platform and I had one of the first civilian CAR-15's with an extendable buttstock in the early 1980's. It believe cost me around $400 NIB and came with 2 10rd mags which I still have. The pic below is the style, though not of my particular gun. Kept it for a year or two and sold it because it really didn't serve my needs at the time and there weren't many options available back then. I got a Ruger mini-14 instead for $200 NIB and was perfectly happy with it until someone stole the gun during a home burglary in the early 90's. I finally broke down and got another AR style rifle about 2 years ago - a S&W M&P15- and now own the S&W awa a Bushmaster upper for it in 7.62. Still, my go-to gun in a SHTF or CQ self defense situation is my K-T SBR.
