It's been a long road to get to this day. I started this build at the worst possible time, December of 2014. I took my time and researched parts, looked at videos, and asked questions waiting for prices to get back to a more normal level. I slowly picked up parts and have finally finished. All that's left is checking headspace and shooting it. I have a couple of crush washers left over so that might be the basis for my second build....

Here are the parts I used:

RBA build your own lower parts kit
Magpul enhanced trigger guard

Looks nice! Don't worry about it taking a long time to build, my first rifle was that way too!

I'm curious about the trigger and HexMag. Looking at the EDT myself and have heard mixed things about the HexMags.

Thanks. While I haven't shot it yet the trigger is very smooth with no discernible creep. I may swap out the 5 lb spring for the lighter one once I get a chance to play with it. We'll see how the Hexmag goes. It's what the local shop had in stock at the time. You have to slam it pretty good to get it to seat but there isn't any play once it's in.
