Spikes lower
RRA LPK
Spikes 6 position standard M4 stock
Magpul ASAP sling plate

Was gonna use a Spikes LPK but after I got the Mag catch in I realized that I didn't have a pivot pin. After going through the parts I found that I had two take down pins and 3 takedown springs and detents. Called Spikes this morning, they are shipping out a pivot pin. Said they had a new guy packaging LPKs for a while and this didn't sound like the first time

The movie



The parts (Spikes, not the RRA)



With a DPMS for testing, fit was good, finishes were much different. DPMS does have a nice finish.


Good times

Yeah, I've been collecting tools and parts for a while. All I need is a pivot pin and a stock for lower number 2. Lower number 3 needs a LPK and stock. Just not sure what I want to do with it?

Don`t use that vise for any barrel changes.

That's where the upper came from. A stock DPMS, on the chair you can't see is another DPMS (my brother's, just to check my work .

Oh and the vise is good for little stuff, not heavy wrenching.

I shot it today with the DPMS upper, wow. The ST-T2 buffer is awesome. Huge difference over the buffer in the DPMS. 60 rounds and solid as can be. Nailing 20 oz bottles of water at 100 yards. The RRA trigger is a touch nicer then the DPMS. My DPMS has a pretty good trigger not much slack, kinda heavy. The RRA is more crisp and less slack, I like.
