My friend, Ron (Gunmonkey) did something totally awesome for me today. Check this action out:






Today he handed me a box full of the following: Brand-new (to me) black 20" furniture camo-ed up with a neat "desert sage" pattern, GG&G rail, Knights vertical fore grip, A2-length stock and pistol grip and a Spectre spare magazine pouch.

Wasn't that sweet? In the words of Jimi Hendrix "Excuse me while I kiss this guy."

This rifle is built on a 20" A2 HBAR (we think it's an Olympic, who knows?) upper, DPMS lower with match trigger. All I need to get this rifle finished is to thread the barrel, add a Vortex or Phantom, bipod mount, tac sling and optic (and a boatload of magazines) and I'm good to go.

+1


I'm a youngin' but even I know of the controversy surrounding that particular line from Purple Haze. It was widely thought that he said "Kiss this guy" but it was in fact "Kiss the sky".

I am pretty sure MeanSteve was implying a joke.....but in return he got accused of misquoting.


Nice rifle by the way!!!!

Did you say, "I can't quit you!" when he gave you the belated Valentines gift?

He used three cans of Krylon camo spray paint and some plastic fishtank foliage for a mask. It also appears that he tore some jagged strips of masking tape for the heavy brown transverse stripes.

When I first saw it all put together, I was all DANG DOGG, WE NEED TO DO THIS TO THE RECEIVER! I don't know yet if I should, as it would make a big hit on the resale value of the rifle. Setting up a camo furniture set is simple vanity anyway, as I don't think the coyotes and jackrabbits care one way or another if the rifle that's shooting at them is 100% black or only 47% black.

It sure did! See folks, literacy is FUNdamental. If more people took the time to actually read things, they'd find the witticisms subtly hidden in the topics about which many people write. However the joke I made was as subtle as a sledgehammer to the groin.

Anywho! Thanks guys. I'm so totally stoked about my new rifle. Think I might go try and get some trigger time in before the sun sets tonight.
