I have been wanting an AR for years and finally had the time and money to get one. I hit up EVERY shop in town for months waiting on one to show up that I wanted, researched building, checked gun shows and still...nothing that made me

So I finally decided to Build my own so I could have it EXACTLY how I wanted and know everything about it, inside and out.

I started off with my first piece, a stripped Spike's Tactical lower, then later that week picked up a Tactical Innovations lower parts kit and MagPul 30 rd magazine.

I looked all over and different barrels and hand guards and everything else and this is my creation.

And as far as accuracy goes... well...

I sighted it in at 100 yards because thats all I had available to me but I hope to get out to the farm tomorrow and push it out to 200. You can see where I started high and left and brought it in little by little. And the hole on the bottom right.. "that lil guy? Nah, I wouldn't worry bout that lil guy!"

Thanks for the compliments and welcomes. My girlfriend wants to build one now that she had a chance to shoot mine. She wants to have hers duracoated so that will be our next build. This one took about 9 months or so to complete, hopefully hers wont take near as long.

Oh, forgot to add. I sighted it in WITHOUT the bipod. I havent had a chance to shoot since Ive added it. Hopefully that happens on Wednesday. I cant wait.

It is a RedHead scope that I got at BassPro. My girlfriends brother gets 40% off so I gave him cash and he bought it for me. I was told their scopes are made by Bushnell. Its a 6-24. I was really looking for an illuminated but thought I would give that one a try. If i didnt like it, I was going to put it on Craigslist and get another.

Me and a friend talked about starting up a shooting team once I got this rifle built. He was a marksman over in Iraq and then went to sniper school and did a little bit of that. Hes helped me alot on my marksmanship. Hopefully we can get this thing going soon.
