I decided I wanted another AR15 recently since I only have one (Model 1 16", purchased in '99), and since the AWB expiration was coming up I went ahead and ordered preban stuff (before the big rush woo hoo!). It's not completely done but I figured I might as well post a pic of it so far.

A3 upper with T numbers, LMT bolt assembly, and MI rear site from Bravo Company, 16" M4 profile barrel from Bushmaster with Phantom FS, and 6 pos stock from Bushy. I just put the parts on an existing lower and used an existing handguard set. I should be replacing the handguards with some railed ones along with a new lower sometime in the future, and maybe some optics... I took it to an indoor range the other day and blasted a couple 30 round mags through it just to make sure it all works (it did!!!).

This was my first ever real "build". Until now I had never seen an actual bare upper receiver, and I was afraid to mess with the barrel, gas tube, etc. on my existing upper. After building this one, I disassembled and reassembled my old upper just for fun! I have a feeling I overtorqued the barrel hey, live and learn.



Some of you might remember this picture from my post about the vice my neighbor gave me:

How's the Finnish on it, funny man. It looks pretty good from here. You won't regret the rail system decision. Good job on the build.

I beat the Finnish out of it first!! It is 100% American now! Oh yeah, my only existing AR was an A2 upper, so the flattop is pretty sweet. Hope to get the rails up front with handgrip and light.

Does anyone else want to stroke me, or is this it?
