Well here it is, first build. Nothing fancy, but just what I wanted.



Will be going to the range tomorrow to try it out.

Thanks Dano,

I am pretty lucky though, my wife doesn't really care about this stuff. I just got finished with this and have not even taken it out, but I am already plannning another. I told that to the wife last night and her response was, "OK".

+1 on a nice build.

My upper just arrived, literally. Another will be born soon.

Kuddos on your new rifle!

Very nice. What's your configuration? Where'd you get the parts from?

I'm looking to start my build soon.

Simplicity works best for me, so I dig your rifle... I won't lie of course, I enjoy the sight of those fancy "tacticool" AR's, but for my use, a simple build is more than comforting.

Thanks guys, sorry for the delay in posting a reply. I thought I would wrap up the spec with a range report, since I took it out this morning.

The lower is LCW, LMT 16" Upper, LMT Tube and H-Buffer, VLTOR stock.

The trip to the range was good. Zeroing didn't tak to long and went through ~250 rounds. I used a mix of WWB, Black Hills and even Wolf. I am very happy to say, there were zero problems. Everything worked flawless. I really like this rifle. I took my father with me and he fell in love with it too. I think he is intending to build one himself now.

So to sum up a great trip to the range and the EBR disease has been transmitted to another. Now I have to take my brother, so he can be infected too
