O.K. I gotta ask were did you get the Magpul forend grip?
Link Posted: 1/20/2009 4:54:15 PM EDT
I found two in the last week. First one at riflegear.com (only had 10, sold out in minutes), then I got that one at G&R. Had to call in, they didn't have them on their site. I don't know if they still have any.

You can tell I'm not a photographer but here is my pride and joy.  It is a Sabre M5 mid-length flat top w/ MI BUIS and an EoTech 512.  It is fitted with a Daniel Defense mid-length Omega rail, MI QD swivel and Vickers Combat Applications sling.  It has a Surefire G2 in a Viking Tactics mount.  


Very solid rifle and build cost was only $1800.  Oh yeah, this thing drives nails!

Link Posted: 1/27/2009 10:21:20 PM EDT
Very first build! So happy to have it completed. Test fired... goes bang when I pull the trigger. Groups well! Shoots better than me..

14.5" barrel w/ pinned Phantom
RRA Lower
J&T Distributing upper
YHM Free Float Rail
YHM Front sight / gas block
YHM Rear flip sight
Hogue pistol grip

Only issue I had was the ejection port cover would not close when I received it from J&T. (pin too high, wouldn't close) I purchased a polymer cover that had pin adjustment available. Pinned flash hider job looks okay.http://i42.tinypic.com/npnv5d.jpg

My first build:

DPMS Lower
Magpul MOE stock/MIAD grip/rail panels
LMT 16" Upper
Daniel Defense Omega 7.0 rail
TangoDown stubby VFG
LaRue BCG (gasp!)

Pictures are a little rough, I used my little point-and-shoot...didn't pull out the Canon SLR and camera gear quite yet.  I'll do that once I get a rear sight and some optics.  I'm looking at putting an Aimpoint T-1 with LaRue mount on it.  It's my lightest AR by far, I figure the T-1 will keep it lightweight.

My first Build.  It is a Stag Lower with a Stag 2H upper.  Tapco Adjustable Sock.  No optice as of yet as I will want to shoot it with iron sights for a bit.  It has only a 10 Round magazine as a bigger one would make it "evil" here in California.  In addition I have a "bullet button" so that I can have all of these  "evil features"

Just finished,

More pics here, if you want: http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=4&t=423792

In the future (when $$ allows) it'll be getting a new trigger and some optics.
