    My first AR is a Rock River whick I have changed out some of the parts on. I decided in December to order another upper, primarily as a back up in case I had anything break. Well that plan went to hell. As soon as the upper arrived I knew that I had to build a second gun. :eek: So I quickly located and orderd all of the neccesary parts to complete my first build. I realize I could have saved alot of money had I built this six months ago, but what the hell. I have no regrets. Here are the parts that comprise my build....

    * TRR15A3 16 Inch Upper with Superbull Diamond Cut Profile Barrel, YHM Long Free Float Diamond QuadRail Handguard (Came complete with BCG and charging handle)

    * LRB Arms M15SA Stripped Lower - which I then proceeded to laser engrave my Pin-up artwork on)

    * PSA Lower Parts Kit w/out fire control group (Came with OD green Magpul MOE grip and OD green enhanced trigger guard.

    * OD green rail covers, Magpul CTR stock, Magpul MOE RVG

    * Carbine buffer tube & spring with H2 buffer

    * Timney 668-S 4lb single stage trigger

    * KNS precision trigger and hammer pins

    * YHM flip up sights

    I can't believe how easy this was to build. And I'm affraid that it is highly addictive. I've already got another upper on order and my eye on a lower on Gunbroker!

    Only part I'm changing out is the charging handle. I ordered the Rainier Arms Raptor Ambi charging handle.

    Yeah. I can't wait to shoot it. Unfortunately the only rifle range in town sold out and closed last year, so now I have to drive an hour to some of my family's farm land just to shoot. Not complaining I like being able to get away from everything and get shoot some tannerite exploding targets which the local range did not allow. I just don't get to go as often as I like. I'll report back with how it performs as soon as I get a chance to let 'er rip.

    Had to look that one up. That is a bad *** stock! I'll have to keep that one in mind for my next build.

    Thank you sir. No I'm not a lefty. I like the Raptor charging handle over the standard one because you can grab it from any point and yank it back. You don't have to engage any tabs like the one on the left side of the standard one. As for how she shoots.... I hope to find that out real soon! :cool:
