    Here's my Jack clone finally done with everything I want on the rifle. The reason I went with a clone instead of buying the real thing is, well...because its been pretty much impossible to come by until recently unless you were willing to throw down 3k+ on GB...No thank you! I also preferred a clone because I would have changed out the 10 inch handguard anyway and wanted a hammer forged barrel along with some other minor preferences. Living in the desert I wanted a different cerakote than the nice disruptive grey it comes with to better match my surroundings. I got it cerakoted in dark bronze by Joint Force Enterprises who are the same people who do the cerakote work on the Jacks. They do excellent work and am very pleased with how it turned out. I tried to stay as close to the Jack as possible but had a few different preferences of my own. I actually purchased a Jack Carbine just yesterday from Rainier Arms but that will be going to my wife as it will suit her a little better I think. This clone is the kind of Jack I would have bought for myself. Comments or criticisms welcome:D

    and before you ask "what the hell is that mounted on the rail?"....Its a rail mounted Battle Blade. I just threw it on there because I haven't decided on an optic yet. Thinking about a Vortex Razor HD 1-6x gen 2 but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Sorry about the pics too I'm not a camera guy at all really.

    unprotected sights just don't make sense on a fighting rifle.

    Guess I'm still a noob here but what is the lever above the trigger on the right side?
    Great looking rifle by the way. Where do you do most of your shooting? I'm out here in Gilbert.

    Don't wanna think about that yet still enjoying the finished product lol. Nah I don't know exactly yet haven't added everything up because it took so long to get everything together exactly how I wanted it. I would guess upper 2k vicinity tho. I def didn't go cheap

    that's the Phase 5 Tactical EBR which stands for extended bolt release. It is a handy device for engaging the bolt catch/release with your trigger finger. Makes clearing malfunctions easier IMO and mainly why I got it. I used to go to Teds Shooting Range but now I only really shoot out in the desert. Shooting steel is more fun to me

    Beautiful AR, LaiePoi! I love seeing someone put so much thought in their build and use top quality parts, it's truly rare.

    I'm sure Travis would give your "Jack" a thumbs up, I sure do.

    BTW I think you made the right choice with dark bronze instead of burnt bronze. That dark bronze looks badass!!!
