Damn JL you're one helluva task master

With several pauses to take pics, hone the trigger & snip a spring & counting clean up too the Krieger project took about 2hrs.

Attach barrel to CMT upper



Carefully slide free float hand guard over gas block & screw it on.



Step 2 or so



<insert music from Jeopardy>
Brief pause while I looked for the forward detent pin after launch

80% along



Almost there



It's official. Build number 6 is done

HA!

TWO STEPS ahead of ya

I did the trigger job during assembly & just this morning I finished the last of 3500 rounds of 55gr ammo. I do have 1k of Nosler ballistic tips to load up yet though.



Winters in Michigan make for plenty of reloading time.

Note the sheepleflage' ammo cans. Those are dishwasher detergent buckets.

C'mon man where is the 2 stage trigger? You cant have all the other fancy stuff and then screw around with a modified stock trigger!! Get a Jewel or a Gieselle. Something, anything other than a stock trigger.

Errmmmm... Price?

Total cost $894 with optics. I shop carefully in EE & the auction sites along with a couple prefered vendors.

<buckling to peir pressure>

Ya a Jewel is the next trinket to be added.

Nice build!
