I like your thinking, I have been looking at doing this same build as well, I already did one for a guy but he turned into a ***** and would not let me get any range time with it to test it out properly and develop a good load for him to use in it, needless to say he just paid the money and ran off with the rifle and hasn't spoke to me since....... which I don't really like building a rifle for someone and then not being able to test it for proper function myself, but oh well, that was what he wantedI think the next thing I'm going to build/buy is an BCM upper A4 w/ a Colt lower to get as close to what I was issued.
I would recommend either a build or a DD. Either way, go light.I already own a rra elite operator 2. I love it . But like all gun junkies I'm looking to diversify. Any recommendation on a next make? Bushys are too generic for me no offense to those that take a liking to em . Thinking along lines of lmt or daniel defense
