    I would say yes. It's hard to get into any AR for 325.

    Thank you for your opinion

    I'm going to use it for plinking. I'll post pix of finished weapon (Lower receiver was fathers day gifts {inards & buttstock} and stripped lower was a gift from friend.)
    So I have spent $337 {upper + s/h} and I have a finished weapon.

    I'm gonna replace the front site assy with a lopro. I'd like to do it and keep the same hand guards. With my eyes (blind in 1 eye, yada yada,,,,,) I'll need a scope....:cool:

    A fine stick, sir! I have a del-ton upper as well, and I'm as pleased as punch with it.

    Glad to hear we have another satisfied member of the FTF AR build family :D
