Vulcan Lower (Fired ~100 times and hasnt blown up even once!) :rolleyes:
Stag 0H Upper with a brake
Palmetto Armory Magpul LPK
DPMS Stock
Troy Fixed Rear Sight
Weighs 6.5 LBS with a 10 round mag

I wanted something light and small that would keep shooting bad guys after being kicked around.

Im into the rifle ~$600 and traded 300 rounds of 308 reloads to a friend. So about $650 total. It shoots well enough to chop down a smaller dead tree at 40 yards ;)

Very nice. Looks like it will do the job.
I looked at the Palmetto Armory Magpul LPK because I wanted to see what premium you paid for the upgraded grip and trigger guard.
Wow! $53? That's a great price for ANY LPK.
One question though, is that a slot-head screw for the PG?! Why? An allen-head screw wasn't difficult enough to install?

Well done, none-the-less.

The magpul grip comes with a pan head screw with blue lock tight

What advice would you give to someone interested in doing the same? Looking to get an AR but would like to get it the cheapest way possible.

Nice man! I have some bad news.. You're going to want to build another one and then one more after that and so on. It will not stop! :D

Won't be cheap when you're building your third! :D

Aw and here I thought I was cool for building one that didnt have the regular 6 position stock :( I like it, its very sturdy feeling and has firm clicks for the adjustments.

My advice is always the same: its way cheaper to build something right the first time. In this case however I wasnt sure exactly what I would like/dislike about the AR platform so I chose to get some decent stuff at a decent price. I plan to build a second Big Dawg status AR more along the lines of DD or Noveske, while maintaining short and lightweight characteristics.

I do recommend the PA Magpul LPK though for anyone wanting to get solid parts for a good price. And for the Flathead Panhead screw for the pistol grip, it wasnt that tough to get into the hole. It all depends on how good you are with your big screwdriver :p
Ah I crack myself up sometimes
