Im almost done with my first ar build, decided to go .308 with this one :) Im just waiting on a bolt carrier and a bipod. Im so happy with my first build can't wait to shoot it! Ive dealt with some great companies & very helpful people on this build. They will for sure get my business again! Thanks Golden Bear Arms for the upper/lower combo, Rainer Arms for lpk & gas block, Tier One Arms for the ubr stock & Elite Tactical Components is going to hook me up with the young carrier when they get them. Here's my parts list, what do you guys think?

Hey that Leuopold is sweet I think I have the same one. 3-9x Vari-X? It's a great scope I just sent mine back to Leupold for a service and they returned it in like new condition! But yea, get the NightForce...

Ya its a nice Leuopold, Im really happy with it. I've had it for about 8 yrs now. I usually have it mounted on a .270 Remington 700. I had to steal it for now until I can afford the Nightforce. I want something with a little more magnification.

By the time I pay for the bolt carrier & I think Im going with an atlas bipod it will be right around $2300.
