First of all I want to say how awesome my wife is. If anyone here gets to meet her you will know what I mean. I don't know anyone who doesn't like her.

Since it's her 30th Birthday, yea she's feeling old, I wanted to get her something special so I custom built this rifle for her. With the help of Rob and Frank of course.

Oh and just in case you think I'm weird for getting her a rifle for her birthday we're also going to Disneyland for a week. So there....... :-)

I bought most of the parts from Sacramento Black Rifle. Rob really came through on this build for me and I totally appreciate it. If anyone is looking for parts in Sacramento be sure to stop by his store. Thanks Rob!

I had it painted by DREADNOUGHT78 (Frank). He did an excellent job. This thing was painted totally broken down and one piece at a time. He put a ton of prep work into each piece to make it perfect. If anyone needs Duracoat done right in Sacramento PM DREADNOUGHT78 on Calguns. Thanks Frank!

The Hello Kitty will always be the original pink AR but I wanted an "M4" version. My wife is short she needs the collapsable stock. Besides, I wasn't trying to copy. I wanted to take it to the next level. :D

Pic heavy is an understatement:D Have you given it to her yet? Nice present.

Sorry, I just wanted to show the detail in Frank's work. Everything was completely broken down. Even the QDS sights were totally taken apart. It needs a bit of touch up from building now. Frank is going to do that next week.

She doesn't get it till we get back from Disneyland.

Wow! Great job by all involved. Makes me want to do a project gun. But if it doesn't relate to cutting paper (cricket stuff) then she doesn't want it.

Makes me want to do a project M4 with color!

Have a safe and fun trip. We are headed to Disneyland on the 23rd for my 41st birthday. We're the sleep deprived parents trying to keep up with the 5 year old triplets boys.....if we're short with you, its because we are out numbered and our first Disneyland trip without a containment devise (stroller).

I think a Hello Kitty engraving would set it over the top quite nicely! haha but awesome present man, she will love it!

Just got done showing my mom this thread and she was like you better not be giving me one of those things! Oh well, she likes to shoot my 9mm AR, and Glock's but she does not want her own she says ;)

Still a very nice AR, and the Darth Vader Hello Kitty is funnier then heck!

So my question.........does that render that rifle less evil?
Kinda like a diet EBR.......EPR? It no longer depletes the ozone layer, baby Pandas will now be born by the dozens.
World peace is now at hand? Tibet is free and hippies will take those damn stickers off their cars while simultaneously taking showers???
People in Darfur are no longer suffering and that idiot Bono will quit telling me to give them my money instead of feeding my family????





Oh well, that is a beaotchen rifle though.
