Well, I had some time tonight and finally ended up with this.Image
I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow. The bull barrel made for a little more work than I wanted but I'm liking it.

So is that one going to be yours? Lot to be said for bull barrels.

I like the plain stock and the flattop look. Simple and uncluttered. :thumb: I only shot one aftermarket AR and I could not handle the twanging of the spring in my ear. Is there such a thing a a hydraulic or pneumatic buffer for these? If the rifle was quiet in my ear I would love one.

Thanks Randy, I really like the look too. There are several different spring and buffer options available to address the issue you speak of.

The only other rifle I shot like these was the original toy from Mattel when I was in the military, I do not remember now if it twanged like these do. I was in the Air Force so I didn't shoot them very often, just for the required yearly qualification.

Looks Great Tolly!!
I like the A2 stock (I think that's what they're called) and the flat top too!!

That's a rifle length hand guard isn't it?
And the barrel isn't free floated, is it?
What kind of hand guard is it??

Don't all the "experts" claim the free floated barrel on an AR is more accurate?
Then again - I really like the way it looks!! :great:

What kind of scope rings did you end up using?

When are you going to shoot that baby??

Will it be a Youtube event?? :cool:

Inquiring Minds wanna know!! :D

I know I'm pretty impressed with the SS barrel I have!!!
It's 300 fps faster with 50-55 grain bullets than a 16" barrel - which is about 10% faster!!

Anyway - keep us updated!! And I hope that scope suits you too.

The hand guard is a magpul rifle length. I had a Bushnell scope I was gonna put on it but that Nikon looks perfect. And that a2 stock looks pretty bad ass. I'll probably break it in before I shoot it on my YouTube channel. Maybe this weekend.

I pretty much quit trying to watch videos once we got down here and ended up on satellite internet. Not just the bandwidth, they just sit and spin for the most part on my computer. If there's one I really want to watch I get my phone lol.

I had satellite internet for years and years, slow and limited bandwidth. Beats dialup and that's about it honestly.

When we got the chance to get fiber optic internet we jumped on it..... no looking back.
