Newest AR build.

Just got the rest of the parts in to get this one finished up today. Kind of a pseudo "budget build" gun. I pretty much just used the parts that I could find. Made it basically a standard M4 clone.

Mega Arms Gator 15 lower (really surprised at the quality on this. Good stuff!)
PSA + MOE lower build kit - minus fire control group (had a standard GI FCG from other Geissele upgrades)
PSA 14.7" CHF upper (pinned flash hider)
UTG milspec stock
Barska carry handle
UTG quad rail

Still need to find a BCG in stock... but for the time being I'll be running it with my CMMG 22 conversion kit.

Thanks. Haven't shot it yet! Probably won't get to until at least NEXT weekend. Going to be out of town on a cruise from Fri-Mon.

Happened to check arpartsfinder.com this morning and PSA had full auto BCGs in stock for 179. Picked one up and told a friend.. he checked within 10 min and they were already gone. *whew* Lucked out there!

That was lucky to find a milspec FA BCG at that price. Even better it's the same brand as your upper!

I got lucky too with my PSA upper but couldn't find a PSA BCG at the time. BCM instead which of course is GTG as well.

Nice AR, close to my last build. I have a couple of the gator lowers and I'm very happy with the quality. My mid length PSA upper shoots great. I'm still looking for a aftermarket hand guard.

I saw the PSA BCGs in stock. Almost got one but couldn't really justify a reason why as my builds are completed. Yeah, a spare is a good idea. However, they were in stock for quite a while. Uppers in stock also. They are definitely lasting longer online. Good sign.
