    Well I've got the parts that are going out for nickel boron coating broken down as far as I can get them. They will be headed to WMD tomorrow. Then about a 4 week wait..... oh what will I do to fill my time?

    Building is addicting! Send me a stack of cash and I'd be more than happy to build one for you. I just have expensive tastes, so no cheap generic parts would be used! The upper, lower and all of their small parts will be nickel boron coated.

    The stock I want to use is the Magpul UBR hydro dipped in reaper black.

    I will be sending off my pistol grip, Troy flip up backup sights, Burris P.E.P.R Scope base andNikon P-300 scope off to sexyweapon.com to be hydro dipped to match the other parts.

    Here's my delima... Do I send off the free float hand guard when it comes in? I ordered a Lancer LCH5 mid length. It is carbon fiber, so it'll look bad ***, but it would also look good if it matched the stock. Here's what it should look like. I am leaning towards coating it.

    Well I have not yet ordered it, but it is hella expensive! $259.00 for regular black UBR stock vs. $329.00 for hydro dipped UBR stock. But i'm not building an uber affordable entry level carbine. I am building my dream gun, so to me it is worth it.

    This one will be a 14 1/2" 300 Blackout. To avoid NFA paperwork it will have the muzzle break pinned. I already have the barrel and muzzle break.

    I do not currently possess the patience to wait on the NFA *******s just to save a couple of inches. Besides this one is be built to shoot supersonic rounds not subs so a suppressor was not/is not planned for this build. I am going to do a 10 1/2 inch suppressed 300 build late this year or early next year. For that one I will load sub sonics.

    Well the parts are off to WMD for coating. Now I have 4-5 weeks to hurry up and wait. I was planning on using a 3 1/2 lb single stage Timney in this build, but when in a local gun shop today picking up a dust cover kit I came across one of WMD's NiB-X coated fire control groups. For the price I just could not pass it up. I then ordered a JP enterprises 3 1/2 lb trigger spring kit for it. the NiB-X Trigger group just fits the theme for this build perfectly, so I'll give it a try. Hey if I don't like it I'll pull it out and drop in the Timney.


    ........Oh and another thing. After I got home from work I ordered the Reaper hydro coated Magpul UBR stock and vertical grip. So this makes my decision easy. As soon as the carbon fiber Lancer LCH5 hand guard gets in, I will be sending it off along with the Troy backup sights, pistol grip, scope and scope base to be hydro coated to match. I can hardly wait to have a table full of completed parts in front of me! It will be like Christmas morning. Heck it had better not take until Christmas!
