    Like the diamondhead rail! Looks great on that barrel length/flashhider combo. Why 1/9 twist? I thought everyone had jumped to 1/7 unless they were building varmit rifles (1/8 wylde). 1/7 handles a wider range of bullet weights.

    Planning on a red dot to cowitness with those sights? I am thinking about a vortex or an aimpoint for my personal carbine. Bought a cheap 4x UTG with handle mount to start, waste of money. Looks great the way it sits!

    #17?!!!

    That you own or have built? I've built nearly that many in the last 18 months, but only really own five (one DD, four builds).

    Good looking upper!

    SGT, Nice arm but you would be better off fitting a traditional lower :) I too just completed another using a Palmetto chf upper and 15" rail with a Rainier (nic boron) BCG and am on my way out to kill some dirt clods and soda cans this morning. Love to build/modify AR's, seems like Eugene Stoner just meant for us to have fun.

    This one I'm selling . I have a few personal ones already. I just like ordering parts and building. I've sold 13. Not sure about optics , when I sell them I just put on BUIS. I have a 1:7 16" middy, a 1:9 7" pistol, and a 1:10 7.62x39. People generally like the 1:9 because of the ammo price for lighter rounds.

    I guess the joke fizzled...I was referring to your arm as the lower..looks like you have some nice AR's, I shot a bunch of pumpkins today with my brand new build.

    It never gets old building these beauties. I love it and I'm glad I get to make a living doing it.

    Same here. I've got my personal varmit rifle that I testbed ideas on. Way too much money($3500+) in it at this point! Makes a nice showpiece for my table at gunshows. :D

    I keep a 1/7 middie SBR carbine with 14.5" and MOE furnature as my "carry" gun. A new16" 6.8 middie built for hog/deer hunting. Plus 2-3 "transitional" pieces. I build for myself then someone makes an offer I can't turn down. And it goes out the door. :(

    Can't argue the ammo price for lighter rounds but most of my customers "require" 1/7 even for 55 and lighter. I've learned not to argue, just give them what they want and take the money. Educating the customer seldom pays the bills...;)

    Oh well I get to play with something new all the time so I can't complain. :D

    What length barrel do you have on the 7.62 x 39? I am trying to decide between a 14.5" pinned or a 16" for the build I've got going with the Diamond Head hand guard.
