Default Completed my first AR from scratch...she shoots great!!

A big thanks to Parallax Tactical, Project 2000, AIM, Primary Arms, G & R Tactical, Syrac Ordnance, Core 15 and some various other Amazon sellers.

While this is not my first AR, it's my first that I have hand built from my own selections. I am very happy with the outcome. The adjustable gas block from Syrac makes the recoil feel like a .22. Way softer than my SCAR and much much easier to handle\manipulate.

I have a 1-4x Mueller speedshot that I still need to mount as well as some buis but she's done for the most part. She was a fun project. Only lost one detent spring in the assembly.









Major components of note....

Geiselle MK1 in sand. 13 inch. VERY happy I opted for the 13 inch.

Syrac adjustable gas block

DD LW barrel

CMMG LPK

Aero receiver and lower

Spikes ST-T2 buffer

Core15 NiB-X BCG

Griffin Armament M4SD2

Thanks for looking!

Happy Friday eve!

I greatly appreciate all the kind words gentlemen. Asked my father in law about getting me some ammo at the SDPD POA (union) and even they were cleaned out. They were selling it at 400 for 1k.

I'll have to conserve my remaining.

Yes. I drilled a super small hole down by the latch lever and tapped in a gas tube roll pin. You can't even see it and works great. If you want detailed pics, I can send those along.

For the diamond pattern, I used a laundy hamper net from Target. Cost me $5

Her name....hmmm, that one I will have to think about!

Ha ha, thanks!

When I saw that BCM Haley rifle I had to chuckle. I think the only thing fundamentally different is I have a more basic trigger.

Odd that Haley would not opt for the 13 inch rail.
