Here is the start of my First Build.

Got a Spikes Stripped Lower Receiver, I also Decided to paint some of the engravings. Not sure If i want to paint more or leave it just how i have it now.. Comments are Welcome.

Most parts will be coming in Next week, so this will be a fast build. plus already Ordered the Eothech with 4x Magnifier to be installed.

Im always torn weather to paint like you or leave black...................Paint is definitely cool lookin'......but Black is stealth....Hmmmmmmmmmmm??

I left all mine black so far......You did a good job though


edit: Ya Know, Spike's should make a totally badass Billet extra extra custom lower, w/ al the bells and whistles.........and call it "The Black Widow"....and paint a little tiny red hour glass on thier logo................Huh???

Nice paint job. Now get that thing together and have some fun.

Only took Two hours to Built and its Done, this was taking my time and using three different video's for reference and reading Guide to build the lower receiver.

Now the Mods Can Begin :)

Nice! Keep us updated when you select some optics to put on her.

My Eotech's should be here by end of this week a 557 with 4x Magnifier.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 10:42:32 PM EST
Welcome. I gotta say, everything looks good. Enjoy shooting that thing.

I think that you will enjoy your rifle even more because you took your time, chose quality parts, studied how it is put together and then built it yourself. I still have the very first rifle i ever built from a stripped lower and it is still the one that comes out of the safe the most. Happy shooting.

For a Quick Mod I Ordered the Magpul MOE HandGuard, I will Need to start another build soon, and I can be using this one in the mean time. That way the next one can be built slow and be my ultimate AR-15.

Nice job Joe. My first build is going to look just like it. I like the looks of the LMT rear site but have never seen one in person. I am debating if this is the way I should go or opt for a rear buis that folds out of the way for future optics use. Any thoughts?

Get a Fold Down It will interfere with a magnifier or scope, See Next Post you will see not much room left, But i do like it.

Got My Optics in, Red Dot with 4x magnifier behind it which flips to the side when at close range.
Now I just Need to replace the Standard Hand Guard for something a little more presentable.

KAC M5 RAS!

Link Posted: 9/16/2009 4:27:17 PM EST
The M5 RAS is for rifle-length gas systems (e.g., M16 clones). He could go with a regular (M4) RAS, however.

Well done, Joe.

Last Upgrade, I did not like the stock Handguard, so got a Magpul Moe for 30.00, Looks good now, I have read some people have play in the fit, But mine is very tight no movement at all.

This is the last upgrade for a while.

Now time to go Sight it in and have fun.

I got the Itch bad Now :)
Maybe I will start another build soon, completely from scratch and over a few months, will be a total tactic Rifle, Black and Sand color I was thinking.
