Well, after letting my wife shoot my AR she had to have one. So, I started to shop around and this is what she ended up with. Just wanted to see what it was going to look like. I'm still waiting on the "Goddess Purple" Duracoat for the upper and lower than I can let her put it together.

Spikes upper 16" carbine 1/9 twist
M16 BCG
Aimpoint Comp M2
C3 Defence lower
Stag lower parts kit
KNS pins
Troy bolt release
Ambi safety
MIAD grip with built in trigger gaurd
YHM light weight free float rail
YHM low pro clamp on gas block
Ares Armor SS Comp #4 of 30( she was so happy about that)
Vltor Imod stock
Palmetto State Armory buffer kit (ordered on the 3rd and still waiting :mad: so the stock is just sitting there...)

Guess you pissed her off and are sleeping on the couch for a bit (I noticed the wise lack of fire control system and ran with it ;) )

Nice looking rifle!

Tell us more about that compensator. Why did you/she choose it, and how loud is it?

I'm good friends with the guys that own Ares Armor. The comp they designed is tunable/stackable. To me its not that loud, than again, I am a Machine Gunner.... Once tuned for the shooter, there is 0 muzzle climb. For $100 you cant beat it. Here is a better picture.

This is my wife shooting mine while we were in AZ. Keep in mind, its tuned for me.

Nice build!

The only thing she may not like is that grip. It's a bit wider then your usual AR grip and if she has smaller hands she may not dig it. If she's just going to be shooting from a rest it's not a big deal though.

I let her pick everything out. Mine has the same grip on it, just had to put the smaller back strap on hers.

coming along very nicely

LOL I looked at that picture with the comp and I thought it came in a little green prescription bottle...

Is there a design on the takedown pins?

That is fricken hilarious about the "green" bottle

Hmm I like those takedown pins
Do you have a link for them or are they custom work?

I think I might have mistaken the alternator for a snail...
Is the Vette ever going to see a snail?

I recently went for a ride in this beast

I'll PM you the link.
The Vette might go FI, but I am holding out for a C6 Z06 right now. The LS motors are great to mess with.
