    Can you take a close up of that guard for me? I was eyeballing one on gunbroker. Hows the fit?

    I will try to remember to take a close up in the morning when I have some outdoor light. The fit is really good in my opinion. I had the big full length Midwest on there before and all you see is the flash hider. I love the smooth feel, but wanted just a small section of rails on the end. The TJ was the best choice. I'm still trying to get used to the shorter length. Not sure if I like the shorter guard and seeing that much more of the barrel. Maybe I'm just so used to not seeing any barrel at all.

    Very nice indeed. Great looking first build.

    Not usually a fan of different colors on ARs, but I like your color choices. Subtle yet apparent.

    Shoots as good as can be with the irons. I don't have an optic to see how tight the groups are.

    I'll try to remember the parts:
    Surplus Ammo & Arms lower
    RRA lower parts kit
    Magpul stock
    Magpul MOE plus grip
    Magpul RVG
    JD Machine upper
    Bulldog barrel
    YHM Todd Jarrett handguard
    And can't remember the BCG

    Good seeing you too. Don't be a stranger. I'll let you get some shoulder time on it even.

    I honestly like the M4 profile in stainless, I just can't understand it. Seems like an oxymoron.
