Wood AR Furniture

Has anyone ordered the wood AR furniture kit (stock, grip, handguards)?

Was there any major fitting issues?

What was the resultant overall satisfaction?

I've been interested in such a thing for quite a while now, and now that money, time, and oportunity all seem to be in my favor- I think I'm going to go ahead with the project. Just wanted to check in and see if anyone has any good reasons not to.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

nothing major, a little minor fitting on the stock

pleased with it.. only put a fixed stock and grip on since there was no option for free float tube at the time..

put a CS flat wound spring in and a little weight in the carrier.. it makes for a nice varmint/target rig..it took a lot of the recoil pulse out of it..

The wood furniture seemed to be popular as far as I remember they were on display at the gun shows in the late 70s.
The wood reminds me of the wood furniture on the FN FAL types.
