Looking good! You'll love the SS with the panels. I have one on my pistol with the handstop on one and it works great.

As far as irons go, I really like the MBUS Pro's. Nice and small when folded down, but easy to use when up.

That upper receiver looks strangely familiar ..... New Frontier, Joe Bobs Spartan. Which I happen to be waiting for to come back in stock.

Thanks. Which one did I sell you? It has been too long for me to remember. I hope that it is still running just fine.

I just did most of the work to my upper assembly. Installed the BCM 14.5" mid-length barrel, mid-length gas tube, BCM gas block, Midwest Industries 12-inch Gen2 SS-Series One Piece Free Float Handguard - BLACK, and Midwest Industries G2SS PANEL KIT (FDE). Next is to get a FH pinned and soldered and acquire a set of BUIS.

I made a decision. I just ordered a JP Enterprises Compact Tactical Comp with Persuader Front End and a set of MAGPUL MBUS sights from Primary Arms. The nice thing about the JP Comp is that it is pre-drilled for pinning and soldering and includes the pin and crush washer.

It was a lauer custom weaponry lower with a Midwest two piece quad rail and pinned phantom...which over the years has since been upgraded and swapped out and etc.

I remember that one. It was the only one that I used a LCW lower on. That was a good build. That has been quite a few years ago.

Looks good. The upper and lower's lines and countours mesh together nicely

Like the look.

I forgot to mention that tomorrow I am going to try and get it to the range for its maiden session. I am excited to finally being able to shoot it.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 9:46:14 AM EDT
Well guys, the range trip was a major success. The weapon ran flawlessly (XM193 ammo). This is one of the smoothest shooting ARs I have ever built and owned. The combination of the BCM 14.5" mid-length barrel, JP Enterprises compensator, the NiB M16 BCG, and standard carbine buffer worked like a charm. I got the Aimpoint PRO sighted at 50 yards and after that, I was hitting targets at 110 yards easily. The recoil was negligible. I am extremely please. I would venture to say that it is just as smooth as my BCM Jack Carbine. It did cost less, but just a few hundred dollars less.

I did notice that the receiver had the notch that is required for the BAD selectors. I just do not have a need for an ambi-selector.

You guys did a great job on the receivers. I really like the pin setup for the bolt release. Beats a roll pin any day. Everything fit really well.
