not a bad looking lower reciever, ...the two-tone pattern is refreshing!

I prefer the Daniel Defense quick attach sling backplate. It's nice to have versatility in your sling mounts.

with my most recent lower build, ..i decided to try the PWS buffer tube, http://primaryweapons.com/accessories/buffertubes/

..it installs w/out a castle nut, and no staking req'd... also has QD mountpoints integral to it... haven't had a chance for a test fire yet though..

Willy:

Beautiful!

I have a bit more money to throw at my Dillon first, and then hope to get into an AR....

About your question on editing: We put a timer into the system that restricts editing to a couple days. Numerous reasons, but the best one is to keep somebody from posting "1+1=3" and then getting chastened about it, so they go back and edit the thing to "1+1=2", making the complainer look foolish. (This is very simplified, but you should get the idea.)

Since that cranked a few people off, the staff will happily update an older post for you if requested. (I was going to add that such requests should be submitted in triplicate, using Cyrillic text, but I know we've got people here who would actually do that :mrgreen: .)

(I can't read Cyrillic, but my cousin Mick, who's a Zero worshipper, can. Lord knows what he'd make out of it :D.)

Enjoy the AR!

Regards,

Stu
