I started collecting parts for my wife and daughter's ARs back before that (last) panic set in. They were getting pretty handy with their 15-22's, so I figured it was time to "graduate" to their own, "real" ARs. Parts collecting was pretty rough for a while, but today I finally finished both guns!

I present to you, The Twins (Lite)!

My wife is 5'6" and 125lbs and the kiddo is 5'3" and 96lbs soaking wet, so the point was to keep them pretty light, but I didn't want to sacrifice quality or ruggedness. Here's the breakdown (They are identical except for the color. The wife's is the Tungsten colored one.):

Spike's Lowers
Swapped for the K grips
ALG ACT Triggers
BCM mil-spec stock kits
Magpul CTR stocks

Spike's M4 Uppers
Spike's 14.5" Mid-length Pencil Barrels
BCM Mod 1 Comps (pinned/welded by ADCO)
Syrac Ordnance adjustable gas blocks
11" Troy Alpha Rails
BCM Mod 4 Gunfighters
Semi-auto BCGs (lighter weight than full-auto BCGs)
MBUS sights

I also pirated the PA MicroDots and Larue mounts from their 15-22s until I get something else. I did a few other little things, like Spike's/Seekins billet mag release buttons, Armalite bolt catches, matching (Punisher and Calico Jack) dust covers, Cerakote, color-fill, etc.

As an interesting side note: I've built a bunch of ARs for friends and family, but these are #13 and #14 for "personal" builds.

Nice looking build(s). What's the weights for them?

I don't have anything better than a bathroom scale handy at the moment (it says ~5.5lbs with an empty magazine). They aren't feather-weights, but they're pretty damned light. I still need to add lights, but that shouldn't add too much weight.

Both look like nice sticks, and hope they enjoy the hell out of them.

How do you like the ALG Triggers? I'm looking at getting one for my pistol build I have in the works.

I like them, they are no geissele or timney but for the money I think they are worth it. I have a set if JP springs in mine to which brings the trigger pull to 3.5lbs

Yea I put an SSAE in my last build and it is awesome. I was thinking about the ALG on this pistol it's just hard to get away from Geissele

Nice rifles! Wife pics?

Jeez, I'm jealous that you have a wife that'll shoot with you. Much less one that'll shoot AR's.
