My AR build is done (almost)

Started with an original stripped upper, original furniture, and a barely used barrel. Now I just need to go pick up a bipod adapter.

That looks cool. Also on a side note what is Seattle Guns, why are you banned, and why are you proud of it?
I have mostly non-sporting firearms
In NJ, technically speaking, ALL guns are illegal
Also in my state there is such thing as a Class III BB gun :barf:
Happy to say that despite the NJ AWB I still manage to make my guns look scary

Looking sweet. Have ya been to the range with it yet? Post some targets!
What lower? Who's upper and what scope?

I hope to be posting pics of mine next week if my scope and rings (Badger) come in. Got all new mags today, bi-pod also came in. Lots of work to do yet.
Have not shot mine yet, but will be loading about 300 rounds for it tonight.

Will PM about Seattle Guns. I was told not to rant about other gun forums and their moderators.

Havent been to the range yet. YHM lower, Vortex Viper 2-7x32 scope. Original stripped A1 upper, OD furniture from Rock River. 3 prong flash-hider is new. DPMS lower parts kit, Harris 6-9" bipod. Cant remember what bolt carrier group (pick it up at the gun show).

Nice upgrade to a classic rifle.

The nice thing about an AR-15 is you can buy a piece at a time...and build one yourself.

Nice job!
Have a nice day at the range

I knew someone was going to say it, I like the old-style better also. Just something nostalgic about the oblong shape of the handguard ......
