I had a co worker come to me and ask me what I thought about building him a 6.5 grendel.  I talked with him about his plans for the rifle and he started ordering all the parts and picked up his lower.  So all I really had to do was advice and put the finished product together while teaching him why / what I was doing.  By far the easiest rifle I've ever done (just because I did not have to pick out all the parts lol)







I'll try to remember the parts the best I can.

Upper:
Side Charge non reciprocating charging handle
Black Hole Weaponry 18" barrel / rifle gas / national match / 1x8 twist
SLR 16.5 Solo Lite MLOK rail
Odin Works 6.5 BCG
VG6 Prevision Gamma Brake
Magpul Offset MBUS Pro
Burris PEPR
Burris Veracity 4-20

Lower:
SMI Billet Lower
Seekins Safety Selector
Seekins Magazine Release
Seekins Bolt Catch
Norgan Ambi Mag Release
Hogue Overmold Grip
Geissele SSA-E
PWS H2 Buffer
LaRue RAT Stock
Magpul MOE Trigger Guard.

Thanks, and your shop can be that neat.  All it takes is a little OCD, and being off work for a new born.  Only so much the dad can do at first lol.

Thanks for letting me know it was a Gibbz.  The fit and finish of it was spot on, I'm thinking about picking one up to swap out on my SPR.

Gibbz makes a lower too that obviously matches up perfectly with the upper, it's a nice combination.

The only minor thing that bothers me about the upper is the lack of dust cover.
