It looks like the company info above the Fire/Safe markings are cut/stamped deeper than the Fire/Safe marking. Are they or is it just the picture?

Good luck on your build and keep us updated with lots of pictures!

Thanks! Yes the Fire/Safe markings are different than all the other markings on the lower. They seem to be like 'bubble lettering' . they are not as deep or sharp as all the other markings.

I was thinking of coloring in the Fire/safe, just to pass the time untill the other parts come in

UPDATE: just placed an order for a Harris Bipod HBRM 6-9"

I will Order my new scope tommorow. When it comes in, I will measure it, so I can order the proper ring height.

Waiting on Noveske to Deliver me a Recon, and Gonna order a Larue 20" when I get the cash....

Look what the UPS guy dropped off today I will post more pics when I get my other parts. I ordered my scope from SWFA, but they emailed - it is backordered. I will call them tommorow and see if they have a reasonable ship date. If not, I might cancel the order and buy from someone else who has it in stock.

Build is coming along nicely. Price I pretty good - so far. Price as seen above $654.00
I just recieved my Hogue grip - I love this grip - have one on my Bushmaster M4.
Still to come....(hopefully this week) Scope, Rings, Magpul enhanced trigger gaurd, Harris 6-9" bipod.

With the scope/rings, and all accessories, price is still better than buying a complete rifle from Bushmaster, RRA......ect.

But.... the price might be a bit higher soon ...Seeing as I "MUST" have a Magpul PRS stock(generation II). Man thats sweet!!

Nice build & Stock CelticDragon1972

Well, my Magpul PRS (Gen II) came in.
Ran about 160 rounds through her at the range - very accurate with factory ammo. I am now looking into Reloading I'm sure I can get better accuracy , AND consistency with reloads.
