Spikes 16" Midlength LE upper
Spikes Zombie lower w/ Spikes Enhanced LPK
Spikes 12" BAR rail
Magpul MBUS sights
Magpul AFG
Magpul ACS stock
Magpul MOE grip
Magpul ASAP plate

Looks good. What rail is that?
What kind of optic are you going to use on the rifle?

Spikes Tactical 12" BAR rail.
I'm not entirely sure yet on the optic. Most likely a red dot. Either EOtech or Aimpoint.

Can anyone recommend me a good sling? It would be nice if it could switch from a 2 point to a 1 point like the Magpul MS2. Anyone use one of these or can recommend another one?

Can someone recommend a website that sells 10/30 Pmags for cheap? (atleast as cheap as you can find them including shipping + tax) I'm looking for the OD green ones. I was hoping there was a website that might sell them in a bundle for cheaper. I would buy local but literally every store I called yesterday (about 8) where either out of the OD green Pmags or out of Pmags period.

The AR looks great! As for the mags, the cheapest place I've found for the foliage (can't find any 10/30 local) shipped is from calegalmags.com (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/calegalmags.com). I believe RifleGear and Golden State Tactical have the OD too.

Awesome! Just what I was looking for. Thanks man. Also do you recommend adding the UBB on the pmags? Looks like a nice idea.

I'm not going to put them on mine. I don't plan on needing to be able to perform the fastest possible mag change while shooting paper. It's one of those things that it depends on your needs/wants I suppose. :)

Found this place too: http://www.nationalgunsupply.com/Magpul-PMAG-10-30-Magazine-p/mp-mag211ca-blocked.htm

It's in Loomis. They say Foliage and OD are special order, but they'll ship 'em to your door. A couple dollars cheaper than calegalmags. I suppose if you wanted to grab a black one, as I may just to have one sooner than later, they should be in-stock at the store?
EDIT: I just e-mailed them to see if they allow store pick up for special order items. It'd save the shipping cost.

Very nice. I'm changing my magpul sights to either troys or diamond heads. Better sight picture ymmv. Good build op

Very nice Sig and Rifle. I like the VG, I may have to look into those types, they look easier to use than the standard ones.

Thanks. I agree, magpul sights aren't the greatest, but they get the job done. Seeing how I am going to be running an optic I'd rather skimp on the money here and spend the extra on the optic. Maybe somewhere down the road I'll get better BUIS.

Very nice Sig and Rifle. I like the VG, I may have to look into those types, they look easier to use than the standard ones.

Thanks! I love my Sig. Wouldn't get rid of it for anything (my first handgun). By VG do you mean angled fore grip like on my rifle or a vertical grip that comes straight down at a 90 degrees? I like the AVGs just because it seems more natural for the positioning of my grip. Everyone has their personal preference and nothing is "the best" but it feels "the best" to me.

I bought a vickers...wish I would have bought a magpul as it has the clips ready to go.

Optic wise, I bought an aim point comp m4 but I think I would have preferred to get something magnified. Die look at a 1-8x scope so you can have the non magnified or magnified. If your stuck on a red dot die get an aim point T1 on a Larue mount. Not only very effective and highly regarded but it looks cool too.

Beautiful rifle man.

I just ordered 5 mags. Thanks for the links roushstage2!
You're welcome! I got a reply back from them as well. They are willing to have the special order mags sent to them to pick up in-store vs. paying to have them shipped.

I'm not buying too many ATM, so the shipping is a bit killer for me. Just looking at a couple for now.

Nice rifle, how much did you end up spending on that build?

Wait for the MS3 sling, it is coming out pretty soon.

Someone told me that, LAST YEAR :D.

First off I've gotta say that is an awesome looking rifle, congrats on your score. Second I have the Magpul MS2 sling and my personal opinion is I don't like it at all, for some reason it just doesn't work for me but maybe you'd have better experience with it. Also I know you said you already ordered the PMAGS but in case they ever stop selling them I got mine from riflegear.com, they have the 10 round/30 body PMAGS for $20.99 in black, FDE, and olive drab, http://www.riflegear.com/p-621-magpul-pmag-10-round-30-body-magazine-223556mm.aspx

Had a red dot and sold it. I would save up for an acog which is what I did for my 15.
