After months and months of lurking and asking lots of questions, my first ar is finally complete. i havent recieved all my parts yet, but when they do arrive, pics will be posted. I do however have pics of my upper built by Denny.www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=250051

Upper:
John Noveske Afgan Barrel. 14.5" midlength. Has pinned and welded Noveske KFH
M4 cut CMT upper
Larue gas block
Larue 13.2
LMT M16 BCG
PRI gasbuster ch
Troy F/R BUIS
Surefire M900a
Magpul XT rail covers on 3,6 and 9 O'Clock rails
Magpul ladder rail covers on 12 O'Clock rail and flattop

Lower:
Bushy XM15 lower reciever
Chip McCormic Single Stage flat trigger with KNS pins
Ergo Grip
Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard

Im still undecided on optics, but for now i will just use the troy's till funds become available.
Im also waiting for the release of the Tango Down bipod, and its spot is reserved on the Larue 13.2

Very nice. It's begging for an ACOG.

Why dont you like a socom stock with single pt. sling?
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 11:40:34 PM EDT
Tact 3 pt slings can do everything a 1pt can and a hell of a lot more.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 12:40:46 AM EDT
Not fair if this is your first upper and it's nicer than any of mine. You've got to pay your dues first!
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 1:51:13 AM EDT
Very, Very, Very Nice +1

You're right. It can also get in the way of the bold release.

I think he's sounding off about the SOCOM Ace Stock

You went "first class-plus" on every single component of your first rig, and topped it off with a 3rd rate stock (some would rank it 3rd)

Now if you have all those great components and add a LMT/SOPMOD or Magpul 93B, or even Vltor, you are atop the heap

Great gun, by the way, congratulations!!
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 7:36:48 AM EDT
Ya im probably going 2 eventually replace the stock, cuz im already getting tired of the socom and ive only had it for 2 months. When i get more money i will replace it, but this build cost me a boatload of money so it might be awhile.

EOTech only, why, because you will love it.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 7:56:30 AM EDT
Well if i didnt spend so much on this build i would have bought an eotech, aimpoint and acog like i was going 2 when i was going 2 build a KISS m4 type upper. I went all out though so i cant afford optics just yet.

we know the feeling

an ACOG can cost you nearly the same as a complete AR!!!!

FWIW: I use the ACOG TA31 (donut reticle) which is a great choice-- whenever you get to that stage.

but they have come out with the TA31RCO, and there are many who rave about the TA31F, and other models. ahhhh choices, choices!

Heck, some even like the EOTechs and AimPoints ........
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 8:12:05 AM EDT
Yeah if someone would buy my 9mm Beretta Storm thats been on the EE for the past 4 months then i might be closer 2 buyin optics for this build.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 8:23:59 AM EDT
Great looking upper,

p.s. get the Magpul or vltor

I have trouble transitioning from strong to weak with a 3 pt, thus I prefer the single pt.

John, I wasn't a fan of it either but the more I looked at it the more I had to have one!!! They are very nice. Very nice build byt the way. Post more pictures when it is 100% complete.

I surely will post lots of pics when it is all put together.

Ya i still cant believe that i bought all that as my first ar. My lower was sitting all alone for the longest time and i was constantly changing wut i wanted to do with it, but im satisfied with the setup i selected, for now at least. Now i gotta save up for optics and possible another upper eventually. And of course it will be something unique and definately built by Denny.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 7:07:37 PM EDT
Upper arrives tomorrow and hopefully i will be getting some packages of goodies that i ordered from Bravo Company and from G&R Tactical. I might be able to post pics tomorrow night.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 7:14:28 PM EDT
That beats the hell out of my first AR! That's a sweet build, can't wait for the range report.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 10:57:50 PM EDT
Ya i have 2 locate and purchase some good match grade ammo and see how tight of groups i can get with troy buis's.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:07:49 PM EDT
I have some preview shots of the finished build. Im still waiting on some of my parts so it isnt 100% complete but it gives u a good idea of the base gun before adding accesories. Im to lazy 2 resize them so they are thumbnailed. Enjoy









Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:41:24 PM EDT
Wow. Most of us dont have an AR that nice, and we are on our 5th or 6th...
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:30:18 PM EDT
Holy shnikes....nice man! And your first...I'm totally impressed. That was an excellent choice with the 13.2in. Larue...I love the look of it with that short barrel.

If you wanted to make me scream more like a little girl with excitement joy you could put a magpul stock and an ACOG on there...and a Magpul MIAD grip...OooOOOooo! But again its already incredibly cool the way it is!
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 9:12:41 PM EDT
Whoa.

Now that's a first AR.

Good job.

WIZZO

I almost screamed like a little girl when i saw 3 packages sitting on my porch waiting to be opened. Im still waiting on my M900 from Bravo Company and some parts from G&R but all my other stuff i got today.

I really didnt think that many people would be that impressed with my build, seing as there have been some awesome builds on this board in the past.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 11:56:36 PM EDT
Very sweet. Glad you went with the 6-pos stock.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 12:05:19 AM EDT
Thats the stock that was on my lower when i purchased it. I just decided against installing my SOCOM for now. Still not sure whether i want 2 use it or try another stock. The 6 pos looks good on it though, but it isnt top of the line like the rest of the stuff on my build.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 3:47:15 AM EDT
congrats

In keeping with ARFCOM tradition, let me be the first to call DUPE!

Oh and IBTL, and.............

Nice rifle.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 4:27:16 AM EDT
Excellent build, Definitely go with the ACOG TA31F or RCO/Larue mount combo
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 8:48:33 AM EDT
I was thinking... "ok, let's look at this new guy's stock Bushy or something, tell him howdy, and way to go."

THEN I SAW YOUR UPPER! WOW! Most people don't learn about all that stuff until AFTER they buy the rifle. I can see you're a "measure twice, cut once" kind of guy.

Congrats, and "nice rig."

My thoughts exactly.

My first AR was a 14.5" HBAR with an A2 upper.

You did a MUCH better job, Lenaburg.

Just wait until i get the rail panels on it, the enhanced trigger guard , an ACOG and maybe a M93 stock. After that i cant think of anything else that can be done to it, other than a paintjob or some kg gunkote
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 1:29:28 PM EDT
Hopefully im going out to the range this week, so a range report is coming soon. Unfortanately i only have my troy buis, and less than match ammo so groups will not be that impressive, however it will give you an idea of the accuracy of this system with less than stellar ammo and irons.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 3:50:57 PM EDT
Have you shot it yet? I'm interested to see what you think of the Krink.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 4:10:23 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 9/19/2005 4:11:59 PM EDT by Lenaburg]
I havent shot it yet. Denny test shot the upper for me before he sent it out 2 me, and he said it shot 2" groups with mil surp M855. He also has the KFH on some of his guns like his 10.5" Noveske which shoots 5/8" groups with match ammo, and he said that there is a big enough difference with and without the KFH that it is worth having. I trust what he has to say.
Link Posted: 9/29/2005 5:20:54 PM EDT
Time for new pics. I finally got some freetime on my hands, and the rest of my parts installed so...

Ya i decided not 2 go with it. I was going to invest in an M93 but Rich dropped the news so im kinda iffy about buying one.

Also im considering some Krylon on her, but i havent decided yet. Wut do u guys think?
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:17:34 PM EDT
I put the first coat of krylon on this evening and will b puttin the second coat on tomorrow morning then post pics.
