I finished my AR build today and here it is in all it's magpul FDE koolaidy goodness

I took one of the turners ATI lowers, built it with a bushmaster LPK added a DPMS upper and BCG and all the magpul stuff. I'm still waiting for my scope to arrive but I can't wait to shoot it. I already used the lower with my A2 upper but I can't wait to break in the new upper.
Yea gun show and turners(10% off magpul sale and I even bought my bcm gunfighter bolt handle there. Turners has really embraced the black rifle) and ammo bros.
UPDATE 1-16-12
Finally completed my build. Couldn't be happier with my Scope- A Leupold 3x9 vx-1 on a Burris PEPR Mount I bought from Cabela's- but I wanted a reddot also. Well Cabella's came through again. I put a Blackhawk offset mount and a Bushnell TRS-25 on it. It seems to be pretty solid and was well within my price range. for under $1100 I have a rifle I can use in Three gun and have a great time. I have my scope zeroed and now I need to set up the reddot. Hopefully I can go up to angeles Wednesday night.

How do you like the afg on the carbine? I think it would be a bit better with the middy. I swapped it for an mvg and like it a bit better v

I'm a big fan of the afg. I thought it more of a gimmick on the carbines but I shot a buddy's and I liked how it sat in my forward hand especially for bench shooting.

Great job! AFG is underrated by the haters who shoot every 8 weeks.

It also not implemented as intended by most of us (me included!) who have em!

Although, outside of using it for thumb over bore to quickly engage multiple targets, I do find it to be just a plain ol comfy grip, but nothing wrong with that.

I'm not a hater, I just find the thumb over awkward on the carbine with the afg. I still utilize thumb over with mvg. Sorry to be viewed as a hater.

I like the AFG with a gas pedal on carbines. It's like running a long 1911

Code blue revive a necrothread.
Finally got to shoot my completed rifle today. (I coach football and the season finally ended) so I went up to lytle creek and found this

Shooting in santas backyard was pretty cool. It was 38 deg. I did not expect the snow but lytle is at 4500 feet ,the trailer dude said, so I guess they got hit Monday. Rifle functioned well. No issues with ejection even with the cold. I did all the break-in cleaning so I only got off a hundred and 50 rounds today but I get to shoot again Sunday at Angeles and my laser bore sighter is supposed to be here Thursday so I can get sighted in. I need to add a picture of my scope mounted up ( leupold vx-1 on a pepr mount) will do that Sunday.
Thanks
Don

Since some people are sick of AR threads I thought I would update my build thread.
You can thank me later.
