Here is the "current" version of my first build. I am not LEO and have no military background. This was put together using forums like this and my own personal taste. I wanted something that could do most things well and here's what I chose. Parts list: Spikes stripped lower RRA 2 stage nm lpk Miad grip RRA Car operator stock BCM BFH lightweight 16" upper Troy vtac 13" alpha rail Ikh slap sling plate Magpul RSA (not in photos) MS3 sling (not in photos) Spikes dynacomp (not in photos) Mbus sights Burris pepr mount Simmons wtc 6.5-20x50 scope(great value, average scope) Wish list: -RDS, probably go primary arms. Just can't justify 500+ for my uses. -Contemplating swapping the operator stock for a CTR. Thoughts? My uses: coyote hunting, plinking, home defense, irritating neighbors and fondling. Not necessarily in that order . I included pictures of the building process. Only thing I had done was barrel torquing since I didn't have an upper receiver block. Let me know how I did.
