Very nice [:)] I would also very much like to know how it shoots. Once you get her broken in could you post your impressions? Thanks in advance!!

I don't know about the whole break in crap.... I went out today and shot 1/2"-3/4" 4 shot groups at 50 and 100 yards. For it being a 16" upper is shoots like a 20". I was very impressed with the accuracy of the 416 stainless barrel. It's probably then best barrel I've used so far. I will post pictures of the targets later. Andrew

That's very similar to a project I want to put together. Can you give me more details about the barrel?... What's the twist rate? What's the coating on it? The picture is not clear to me, what if anything is on the end of the barrel? Where did you get the barrel and home much was it? Thanks

1. It's a Olympic Arms 16" 416 stainless steel heavy barrel that's been coated at the factory to make it black. 2. It's a 1x9" twist. 3. There's nothing on the end of the barrel. That's the groove they put on the end inorder to pin a postban muzzle break on. 4. The complete upper minus the bolt, carrier, and charge handle was about $425.00 TT&L Andrew

Like the looks of your first build. Really like the stock. I was wondering where I could go to get one.I'm just getting to build my first one and I really like the looks of that stock compared to just the regular buttstock [snoopy] bubba4602

Congrats on your first build. Looks real nice. Now time to think about the next one.[:D]

The next one's already in the works... it's gonna be done beginning of May cause I'm building it to LEO specs since by then I'll be a certified officer. SO it's gonna have all the bells and whistles. Andrew
