I own a couple AR's but never built one. I quicly found it was like restoring a car, lots of options and easy to get off budget quickly. For my first build I wanted to do it all and do it for a reasonable price. This is what I ended up with. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and seems to be a good shooter. I've only had time to put 60 rounds down range. .Areo Precision lower .Daniel Defense lower receiver parts .Chip McCormick drop in trigger .DPMS A2 5.56 1-9 twist 16" barrel .Olympic flash hider .DPMS A2 upper and assy parts .Falcon Ind free float quad rail hand guard .Falcon Ind over molded pistol grip .DPMS 6 position stock .Mako 4 position fore grip .Galco sling .Shurefire light with pressure switch on fore grip I included my FTF engraved Mora knife in the picture as they seem to go well together I'm going deep sea fishing with Gary this weekend and taking this along, I hope he has learned since the last time I went out with him.
