i'd like my AR to turn out looking like this....but maybe with a removable barrel shroud so i can put on the weaver/picatanny rails on it

buy this, melt the fcg into slag, build it with your own lpk. thats what i want to do.
if you want a legit lookin' nam rifle, you gotta have the a-frame on the front!!

ahh confused on bolded above :confused:

melt the fire control group into the what?
what's an LPK?


that parts kit looks great. seems to have everything except the lower.


oh yeah...what about the bullet button? can i opt for a bullet button configuration that wont alter my gun permanently?...like remove it when i go out of state so changing out mags are easier. i heard you have to grind down the bullet button so you have to use a tool to press it.. i dont want that to happen. looking for something "temporary"

some folk have taken issue with this kit, as some of the parts appear, in the foto, to be full auto parts (constructive possession.) use you own Lower Parts Kit. destroy the fire control group that comes with the kit.

bahaha :D..... it seems they have everything for me. I just bought a WASR from them (highly recommend them)...i guess i'll be gettin the AR from them as well. an AK and an AR. My collection is complete.

It seems they're both out of stock of both items . I can wait, save up money.
