Remember 1 internet commando who dropped $100 on gen 3 pmags that they can’t use in a lower are gonna be infinitely more annoying and loud than 100 of those who actually use their shit and know it’s quality.
sounds good. this build will be 90% bcm, so I wanted to double check...
16" ELW upper with the a2 FSB and moe guards
BCM ELPK with the PNT trigger
H buffer from BCM
(buffer tube and spring are from Right to Bear Arms, lower is an Aero Gen 2, Toolcraft phosphate C158 bolt carrier group pistol grip is hogue beavertail, my fav pistol grip)
but to play devils advocate, BCM lowers have always been their lowest quality part IMO... the lack of being able to seat gen 3 mags after THIS long on the market IS kinda annoying. I'd rather get a BCM lpk and add to an Aero, Mega, PSA or Spikes lower which are KNOWN to accept just about any mag out there than use their lowers... uppers, I hear nothing but rave reviews and for good reason.
