    1st AR Build

    It has been fun. This will be the 1st of several for my collection. My next one will be a piston model but for now.....I am content

    RRA stipped lower in 5.56
    RRA parts kit
    Tapco M4 stock
    Yankee Hill Machine 16" flat-top M4 upper w/fluted barrels
    Vortec flash hider
    YHM flip-up steel sights

    All for under $1,150.00

    Range trip is already past due but the cold rainy weather has to go first. Makes the range a sloppy swamp

    Congrats! It looks nice! Was it easier, harder, or the same as what you expected?

    It was MUCH easier than I thought it would be. Online (YouTube) videos helped alot BTW. I am fairly convinced that I will NEVER buy a stock package based on this experience.

    The upper in a piston configuration will be my next challenge.

    I want to do a 9mm short barrel pistol version and a 7.62/308 24" version in the not so distant future.

    I think I have BRD bad now

    Only treatment for BRD is an empty wallet, and this is only goes after the symptoms, not the sickness. My favorite support group: M4Carbine.net
    I'm interested to hear how it shoots!

    I got several lowers waiting on me to build them into guns,I'm not sure if a piston gun is worth the xtra money
