It was like Christmas morning when I opened up the case, but now I have to wait about two weeks to actually be able to get down to the range to shoot the darn thing ARGH!

Is that steel cased commie ammo? Careful with that, some AR's don't like it. Had to pound 2 stuck cases in my Oly AR. Won't use steel in it again.

Enjoy the rife. I just finished building #5 and 6. One in .223 and one in 7.62x39. Using Yugo brass cased ammo in the 7.62x39.

Yeah, I'm trying out a few boxes of steel cased rounds to see what the rifle likes and doesn't like. Got a few boxes of brass as well, hopefully it'll take the steel stuff like a champ, though I know not all rifles are alike.

To be on the safe side though, I made sure I got a stuck case extractor and such, hopefully I won't need to use it.

If I ever do get an AR-15, that's what I want right there. I'm not into all the folding stock and tactical add on stuff. That is what I'd get! Who makes that one?

Redneckwino.... Not trying to start anything, but that looks to me to be an a-3 with a removable carry handle/sight.. its a very nice looking rifle ya got there. I am too interested in what make(s) that beauty is.

seems to me that you got yourself a good deal.... dont know what manufacturer or how much you paid, but if you are this excited, then it is a good deal. :) and it does look to me like an a3 upper also with removable carrying handle.

Anyways, what IS it lol, I like that olive drab stock, though if it were me i would have also have gotten my pmags in olive drab ;)
