I decided a while back to build what I wanted in a AR based rifle this time. ordered most parts on sale just before and during black friday . Finally have all the parts in and finished it two days ago. Just getting a current picture loaded. Optics and folding sights are still up in the air for now. Parts list used Aero Precision lower -stripped and upper with fa and dust cover installed Basic lpk no trigger from psa RRA NM trigger group A psa m16 mil spec bcg a basic changing handle thru amazon. Free Blackhawk grip and A2 flash suppressor from a buddy Del ton basic m4 mil spec stock kit with H buff Criterion 16" mid length hybrid barrel with 223 wylde chamber and polished chrome bore RRA TRO 11"free float tube, mini gas block and tube And for now a 35 years old 2 3/4 power redfield scope in the photo Raining here for a couple days so all I have had a chance to do is fire 10 rounds from the carport just to see if its working well. Nice to have it shoot with no problems . The mid length gas system and heavier buffer sure makes for a smooth shooter compared to the m&p sport I had.
