Well here it is kids! I put the lower receiver together this morning:
DS Flat Top Upper
DS Picatinny Gas Block
16” 1x9 Crowned Chrome-Moly Match Barrel
YHM 2 Piece Rail Hand Guard
6-Position DS-4 Butt stock
Hogue Rubber Over Molded Pistol Grip
DS Two Stage Trigger
DS MilSpec Lower
Burris Fast Fire Red Dot Reflex Sight
I'll probably get a sling for it soon, I'm thinking I'll probably also need that red dot to come up a about an inch so if anyone knows a place to get some sort of riser block for it or can recommend a good way to mount a sling on the front let me know!
Well went and sighted it in today...
One of my magazines isn't working if you load over 10 rounds in it for some reason it jams the next round in between the bolt like this /, kinda scared me since it was the first magazine. The other two work excellent. The gun cycled perfectly and didn't have one hiccup. One of my trigger pins on the sear section tries to back-out but I'll have that fixed tonight.
I really love the Burris Fast Fire, The red dot was perfectly adjusted for when the clouds came over or when it was super bright out, it automatically adjusts. It also stayed locked on position and I will not need to raise it up any so that's good too. The gun is accurate as heck.
Picture of it with my Kershaw Blackout:
I've noticed a lot of you have mentioned that you recently acquired your rifles. I'm in the same boat, but I'm wondering if this is a sign of the times? But I digress...
LWRC M6A2 (SRT) 16.1" 5.56
Magpul CRT stock and MIAD grip
There's a sling, BUIS, and magnifier in her future, but not much else. Maybe a tripod, but I havn't decided.
I recently bought my first AR-15, too.
Copied from the Oly's website:
Receiver Material 7075 T6 Aluminum Forged Receivers Machined By Olympic Arms
Receiver Finish Black Matte Anodized Receivers, Pakerized Steel Parts
Action Gas Operated Semi-automatic Action
Upper Type Flat top w/ picatinny rails
Front Sight Gas block w/ picatinny rails
Handguard Free floating aluminum tube w/ knurled surface
Barrel 16" bull, button rifled, 4140 chromemoly steel
Chambering 5.56 NATO
Bore Long-life non-chromed bore
Twist Rate 1x9
Stock A2 w/ trapdoor
Weight 7.47 lbs
Great value with all the features you want. Features like a bull barrel, flat top upper, free floating handguard, rail gas block, and A2 buttstock.
Bringing it back to the top with a small update:
That's how I'd like to get mine looking, especially the hand guard and grip. I got a riser block for my scope which makes sighting the scope super quick. And hey, we're practically neighbors!

I recently picked up an AR-10T to go with my Bushmaster .223 because I'm not sure I'll be able to very long after the election. I'm also thinking about getting my own bullet making set up. I figure that even if they don't ban the guns they might ban the bullets to where we cannot purchase what we want.

Yep, it's the Franken-AR.
Target was engaged from 200 yards. Note to self: 8 clicks up at 200.
Who's the dude with the ventilated face?

Very nice rifle ksokie!!:hand10: What kind(brand) of optic is that?
It's just a cheap Tasco Pro Point 2.
Maybe one of these days I'll be able to afford a nice optic, but for right now there are other things I need to stock up on.
Nothing wrong with a a pro point. I have used one on various firearms since the mid 90's.

I'm contemplating building a .308 variant :smoke23: with some nice optics and a small magazine.
