    My first ground up AR build... Noveske Gen II with NSR rail

    So I have a few factory built AR-15's that have been modified a lot, but I haven't actually put together my own until now.

    Here's my first "build" I just finished today. Let me know what you guys think, and if I missed anything?
    (not sure if I want/need to run BUIS on it. I'll decide later I guess)
    I'm dying to get out to the range to break her in!

    SPECS:
    Noveske Gen II stripped lower
    Noveske NSR 13.5" Rail
    VLTOR MUR-1 upper
    Fail Zero BCG w/ Colt firing pin & cam
    Hand Matched enhanced bolt from Compass Lake
    Douglas Barrel from Compass Lake (Chrome Moly, 1:7 twist, 14.5" RECCI type contour MID, wylde chamber)
    AAC 51T Brake
    Geissele SSA-E Trigger
    Stag lower parts kit
    Magpul MOE grip, STR Stock, BAD Lever
    Bad Ass Ambi safety

    I see it's deviated a bit from the original concept and has started spitting out baby 1911s. I'd like to build a breeder someday...
    It looks like a keeper. Congrats!

    Great looking build. Nice choice of quality components.

    Thanks guys!

    As far as cost....without the optics, I spent the exact same amount that Noveske charges for a factory 14.5" Afghan nsr rifle, except I got the match grade barrel, Geissele trigger, upgraded BCG and all the accessories I wanted and the refinish. Not bad IMO.

    Will post a range report soon I hope. =)

    I really like the grey finish and that handguard :) Those Noveske lowers are a thing of beauty.

    That is pretty close to perfect for a compact, somewhat lightweight precision rig. Good going on that one.

    Thanks Jon!

    Yeah, everything was pretty light weight. That is, until I added the barrel. lol
    It's pretty beefy...

    Do you have any pencil barrels in your stable? If so, how do you like them? Accuracy wise, etc...

    If I had gone with one, this build would have been super light.

    I have a Colt 6720, 70's era SP1 which doesn't really count and had two KAC SR15's. For my next few rifles, I'll very likely be going with the CHF Centurion mid weights which are right between the lightweight and standard/govt profiles weight wise. These are pretty much ideal, and about the same as the Noveske N4 CHF profiles. These are thicker under than hand guards but slightly thinner in front of the gas block than standard barrels, and are two ounces lighter, give or take. They are also extremely accurate.

    I probably won't buy anymore lightweight barrels since these are just a little heavier than lightweights, 2 ounces pretty much, but are 1 MOA capable with quality match ammo. They also don't open up like lightweights. My KAC's, though they had this profile, were never very accurate. My lightweight Colts are 2 MOA with match ammo but open up pretty quick when hot.

    Wow! This looks like a great gun! I love the finish. You made a great selection in choosing top quality parts. I'll look forward to hearing about the range report. Great SBR.
