Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums, but I've been a lurker for a while now.  I'm in the process of building my first personally owned AR platform rifle (although I've been using them since 1997, just issued ones.)  Wanted to say hello.  (Fixed to exclude plug....my bad).

This thread will not last long.

Agree that it will not last long...

...that being said, G&R has been great when I've used them also.

Uh oh. Seek shelter immediately.

HAHA, umm no...

Forgive my ignorance, but have I done something wrong here?

This thread will get nuked.

That vendor and the owner are not to be mentioned on ARFCOM.

I sincerely apologize.  I did not see anything about that when reading the "conduct code".  My apologies.  The original post has been edited to be in compliance.

You chose poorly.

Anyone care to enlighten me, or will that just add fuel to the fire?

No way you could have known but they were kicked off arfcom a few years ago for allegedly trying to persuade other dealers on the board to fix prices.

That would explain the inflamed reactions to me mentioning the name, then.  Looks like I'm off to a great start here, huh?

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Yeah, you stepped it in, but it wasn't your fault.

Stick around, there is a lot of good info to be had here.

It must be nice to have a dick long enough to step on.

Welcome anyway.

Thank you!  It's a work in progress, and I'm still waiting on some components, but I'll be eager to post pictures of it when it's finished.

I was just trying to give a positive plug to a company that I had a good dealing with, but being the new guy, I didn't realize that it was a company/person that isn't too popular here.  Lesson learned...

I certainly welcome any advice or input from the forum members here.  I'm intimately familiar with shooting the M4 platform, but I'm quickly realizing that shooting one and building/buying one are two very very different things.   This forum has been a wealth of information thus far.  Thanks again for all of the nice comments.

Welcome to the forum,

Dont worry about it, you didnt know.  You will find there is a lot of good folks here with a wealth of knowledge, most of them will be glad to answer any Q&A and coach you on the best investments in gear.  But Aimless is right, for every group of helpful people you will have one jerk that wants to act like a child. When it happens just take it with a grain of salt and be polite, our MOD's will take care of the rest.

Best of luck Sir, Merc
