    So tonight at the LGS I finally broke down @ got an AR. It is a spikes tactical M4 flattop w/ magpul flip up rear sight. I also picked up a Drago rifle bag, Magpul AFG2, hogue grip, Magpul CTR, 3 extra Magpul mags, & Magpul Bad Lever. After getting home I ordered Midwest industries 2 piece FF quad rail, Magpul ASAP, Raptor charging handle, blackhawk 2 point quick adj sling, @ Aimpoint PRO w/ killflash.

    +1 on the Raptor. I use them on most of my builds. I always liked the idea of being able to chamber a round with either hand. The Raptor is easily the slickest looking ambi charging handle made. The only one that doesn't stick out and jab you in the chest when being carried! Easy to get hold of reguardless of what optics you have. The offhand rake is real useful when I'm shooting lefty. ;)

    Build looks great! Your definitely having too much fun!

    Thanks for all the replies so here are a couple pics w/ the CTR. I was gonna wait & put it on w/ the other parts when they show up put couldn't wait.

    I haven't used the Raptor charging handle before but it's nice to hear good great things about it since I spent $95 on it.

    As for the Drago bag it's awesome if you don't mind waiting I go on leave Wednesday so I'll post a detailed review/pictures of the bag Thursday/Friday time frame.

    I've been debating getting a light for the rifle but I don't have $300 for a surefire considering how much I've on everything else. What's some advice on lights & mounting options?

    +1 to your +1

    I will only use Raptor on any future build.

    Broke down? Sounds like you jumped in with both feet to the tune of $2K!

    I think you've set up a solid rifle. Now shoot it a bunch and take your time with additional decisions...because more are sure to come.

    I can't believe it either my wife has lost her mind or I have the most amazing wife in the world. She gave consent for me to drop $425 for a reloading setup. I feel like the most blessed husband in the world. Needless to say I didn't get the surefire light. Happy happy joy joy!!
