    Complete Lower Half

    This only took 20 min. to put together. The upper half will be here soon but not soon enough

    Looks great, but half the fun of building one of these puppies is chasing a spring across the room or crawling under a table for a roll pin. You are WAY to organized.

    I'm curious where you plan on mounting that plastic storage container, under or over the barrel? :p


    Nice work, welcome to the club ;) What are the plans for the upper?

    1st I would start with finishing your build. ;) Then you really should consider ponying up for SM status, this place really is worth the $15 a year. Think about it, in a years time I am sure you piss away far more than $15 on absolutely worthless crap, I know I do. :eek:

    BTW, how do you like that grip? How does it compare to the Ergo grips?

    you havent had fun till you shoot a 1911 plunger assembly across the room and it comes apart in mid-flight with all three parts bouncing ff a wall and landing in shag carpet.

    You have to either show extensive contribution to the AR section here, or complete an AR build that is documented here on FTF.

    Its made of a hard polymer and not over molded rubber like the ERGO but it feels great in the hand.

    That's a good looking stick. I am going to bet she shoots like a dream once you find the right load for her.

    Looking forward to your range report.
