its a hybrid because I havent purchased my 20-24" upper for the prs build and just got the LPK to put the ctr build together. Ill show off both when I get the second upper later. right now Im just stoked I waited 6 months for this upper.

Sweet, I'm running a 20" Predator Pursuit in .223 Wylde. So far it's giving me some good groups with some off the shelf ammo.

yeah Im paying off a house right now so no bull barreled upper for me for a long time. people here directed me towrads White Oaks Armament so Im gonna save up for that. theyre supposed to be top notch and not much more than RRA.

I get that, I built this at the peak of the frenzy, and it was not a cheap build. But it's giving me some pleasure :) so it was worth it.

Hopefully if the trend continues, you'll probably be able to finish your rig for a good deal.

yeah I purchased this at the peak of the frenzy hence the 6 month wait. it was worth it though I got stock everything minus the lower receiver for 600 bucks shipped in a group buy. while I was waiting I bought a couple lowers and magpul everything for when it got here (today).

all I need is a bull barreled upper and Im done. the upper market has stabilized its just a point of me getting the funds to purchase it.

Good things come to those who wait. I've been cursed with very little patients, and that hurts in the wallet.:(

speaking of patience.. looking around on here...one can pic up enough used parts in great shape to build a complete rig for under $666

yeah but I didnt want used I wanted brand spanking new. in hindsight I coulda done that and still can I need to get another lpk and bcg as a back up for whatever reasons I may need them. I was kicking around the idea of getting a gpu but I think Ill get a robinson xcr in .308 next instead.
