First off - Many thanks to the folks on AR15.com. Your help was greatly appreciated.

First Range trip with it is planned for today.

LMT LR kit
Del-Ton Upper Assy - 16" Pre-Ban M4 Flat Top Chrome lined Barrel Assembly

I put 300 rds through it, part of them while zeroing it. It worked extremely well. No FTF or FTE problems at all.

With respect to accuracy, I didn't get a chance to really test it. I shot 3 shot groups for zeroing it (@ 25m). When it was calibrated, it was within a quarter diameter, with 2 of the 3 holes touching each other. I'll hit an outdoor range maybe next week.

The only rookie problem that I encountered was that I put more than 1 drop of oil in the front sight, set the rifle vertically afterward, then took it to the range. It seems that oil will really smoke when it gets hot. Oh well, I took the handguards off and found where it collected in the upper retainer ring for handguards. Live & learn.
