Finished at last

My first AR build. I spent about six months building this rifle, most of the time was waiting for parts that were back ordered and other time waiting for the money to pay for them.
It has a York Arms custom lower with the Marine Corps Eagle Globe & Anchor on the magwell (for my son the reformed Marine) My Air Force serial # is the rifles serial #, caliber is .223 Wylde Poodle & the fire position on the safety is a biohazard emblem.
Barrel is a 20" SS Shilen match barrel 1:8. Collapsible stock, stripped upper is from Surplus Arms with a US flag on its top. Scope is a 4 ~ 16x 44mm, FFP with illuminated reticle.
Now if it will ever stop raining when the range is open I'll find out how accurate it is.


Trigger control + Breath control + Sight alignment = Gun Control.

Very nice build. I like the Marines emblem on the lower.

What's the story with the old GI mag?
