I just finished my first AR build today. A M4 clone in all of its NO BAN glory!

Its a Model 1 Sales M4 kit with a permanently attached Phantom flash hider and 6 position stock on a Stag forged lower. Arms low flip up rear sight and Eotech Holosight.

Everything went together great and Walt's book was a big help, Thanks Walt!

The only problem I ran into during the build was installing that darn pivot pin detent and spring. After launching TWO sets of detents and springs into outer-space I went to ACE Hardware and bought a 15/64 brass door hinge pin and drilled a hole in it to make my own pivot pin detent install tool. It worked great!

The sights and the Eotech co-locate perfectly, so I don't even have to pull off the Eotech to use the iron sights.

Great lookin' gun. I'm about to do something very similiar. I'm new here so I don't know about "Walt's book". Got a link for this book? Where can I read it/ buy it? Oh...wait! Just found it.
