    New AR

    Well I swung by Bud's Gun Shop the other day to take a look around and ended up walking out with this. DS Ar15 with magpul goodies. I couldn't pass up the deal, and got a somewhat decent LE deal on the package. Standard ar flat top, 16'' barrel. It came with the MOE handguard, stock, and pistol grip, one pmag and mbus. I purchased the magpul afg for it today and already had an optic from a previous rifle. All in all its a fantastic weapon and shot just as well as the M4's we used in the Army. Plus I love buying local and the DoubleStar factory is only about 15min away from my house. Anyways here are a few pics from today.

    Looks like it should get the job done for sure. I do love getting all hopped up on Magpul parts...

    thanks for the comments guys, i just picked up a sling for it today, and will be getting five more pmags this weekend. We took a trip to Sportman's Warehouse today and apparently they carry alot of MagPul products Everything from MOE handguards, stocks, Pmags, rails and covers, and a few Troy Industry parts

    I know you said you got a sling, but if you favor single points, look into the ASAP attachment to run one off of.

    How do you like those handguards? I am thinking on my next AR I am going to go with MOE's to save weight and money.

    I bought an A-Tac single point sling, the rifle came with a ambi single point sling attachment already on it. As for the handguards I love them. I'm not a big fan of the quad rail system and prefer the MOE setup. It has a good texture and fits perfectly for my grip especially with the afg on it. I higly recommend the MOE handguard.
