Howdy y'all....it's been a while.
I've been busy with work and life these last couple of months, but my AR has been on my mind irregardless. Having "assembled" a 7.5" pistol upper, I took on a "new" project since I already had in my possession a 11" heavy barrel. The hardest item to track down was the "commando" flash hider, I finally found one at FTF sales for $29. JSE had a A2 receiver for $130 complete with sight, forward assist and trapdoor already assembled. Everything else was kicking around in my spare parts bin. Eventually, I may be looking for a bolt and a charging handle if I'm too lazy to borrow them off another upper that's being changed out. Here's a couple of pics...one is the pistol and it's uppers(yes wrong section) and the XM177 parts waiting to be assembled. enjoy.
any suggestions is always appreciated.
