I think you built one kick butt looking rifle

I got it from sogarmory.com it doesnt give a brand name. it list for $209.95 but I think they had a sale on when i got it.
My brother has a GG&G Quad rail, he paid like $400.00 for it and as far as im concerned you cant tell the differnce.

I would recommend a good quality tactical light.

You could also upgrade your optics to EOtech or Aimpoint with a BUIS later on.

Not to sound stupid but what is a BUIS? Love the Eotech but the $ is crazy. The optics are Nc Star- I know very cheap but I have put almost $1500 + into the gun already. Planning upgrading in the future though. I have a surefire 6p that im waiting on a pressure cord for the forward grip and the mount. I also have the rail covers on the way.

BUIS is an acronym for Back Up Iron Sight. Too bad they removed the acronym tacked thread at the AR Discussions forum.

That's good that you're getting rail covers too.

I'm using TangoDown panels and Magpul ladder rail protectors, they fit great on my rails.

Good luck.

Dose anybody know where I can find pics of an AR15 refinished all in - desert tan - OD green or dark earth?
I would like to do a total custom job on it but I would like some feedback. In addition, what do you think of the multi color deal- example desert tan Stock, black upper & lower, desert tan forward grip & quad rail covers? Sounds nice but I wish I could see it. I do not know tell me what you think, I it is stupid let me know. If you know, a person that dose good paintwork and I do not mean crylon let me know.

There are refinishing services offered by dealers in the equipment exchange and in the industry section

Great links- this will help a lot. I just got done painting my redi-mag. went to Wal-Mart and got a air brush and some black enamel paint sprayed it and baked it (looks great) I will post pics in the morning 2:00am time to go to bed.

I dont think this turned out that bad at all.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 2:02:06 PM EST
great work!! there nothing like shooting and owning a weapon that you've built!
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 8:11:45 PM EST
This is before painting and I will put one on after. I got the norells moly resin and im going to do it myself. OD-Green, Desert Tan and Black

I think green was a bad choice for the bbl. Tell me what you think
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 6:58:53 AM EST
I am waiting on a new gas block and im ordering a EOTech next week. The white band on the rail is only to keep the rail together. I will probably make some changes to it . You don’t really know what its going to look like until you are done. The only thing I am not happy with is the green bbl.
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 9:26:55 AM EST
Just my opinion, but I would have left it as is.
Nice AR though.
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 9:46:07 AM EST
i would have left the bbl. black
Link Posted: 3/12/2006 6:33:38 PM EST

I like it better with the black upper and lower. Did you just paint over the tan and green?
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:32:01 PM EST
No I re sandblasted everythingand I do mean everything. To do it good it takes alot of prep time. Now I know why it cost so mutch to have done by a gunsmith.
Anything with teflon on it (upper on a bushmaster) has to be sandblasted all the way down.
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 3:01:26 AM EST
OK, looks good to me either way. Nice work!
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 6:48:57 AM EST
Nice work!! I also like it better with the black upper and lower...but then again I am in the new and acute stages of BRD, so anything black is quite appealing to me.
