Hey Guys,

I think I may be getting old. I had an AR15 lower in jail for my new build that comes out Tuesday. Anyways my current AR15 pattern rifle, while functioal is borderline tacticool ( i say this cause it has an EoTech, BUIS, quad raid and is FDE).

Anyways I was looking for uppers in 300AAC and came across this, but I think my tastes have changed:

So I ordered that, along with 500 bullets, and 500 brass for $850, not a bad deal.

Here is the thing...all I am doing is putting a detachable carry handle on it and leaving it as is with all milspec parts on the lower.

I think my tastest are changing to super simple, but functional....im getting old

You can't go wrong! Like you said KISS. I am the same way too. I have a 16in ar15 tricked out with an eotech and all FDE. I am build a 20in that's free floating with a regular m4stock and a fixed Troy sight and that's it... For some reason I like the simple look as well... Are we all getting old lol?! When we no longer like the tactical look!

Ya I hear that....I would have went with the .223 model, however I do like the ballistics better for the 300AAC compared to 6.8SPC and .223....because I am stepping up to harder paper targets.....;)

And for ~220 bucks for 500 rounds of 300AAC when I load them myself (not factoring in multiple reloads from the same brace which will drop my price by a lot)....not to bad of a deal.

Ill post some pics up when Im done
