So here it is in all it's mismatched finish glory (fortunately the black on the MOE parts ties in the Palmetto upper heh) with parts from 7 different companies:

Tactical Innovations stripped lower - $79
PSA LPK Magpul edition - $124
PSA M-4 upper (on sale) with Midwest Industries T9 rail and low pro gas block - $409
Daniel Defense A1.5 fixed sights - $105
Bravo Company Bolt & Carrier - $135
PSA Charging Handle - $17
The bullet button that makes it all lawful - $20
Cheesy Tango down 10 shot magazine - $14

Total cost $903 :D

That still leaves an extra $97 for a sling, rail covers, and forward grip to bring this puppy in under $1000!

She looks good, great job on sticking to what I imagine was a 1k budget. I wish I had that kind of budget oriented will power.

I'm sure the budget will be over 1k when I add optics. But at least by keeping down the cost I don't have to compromise on optics. Thinking about either going with an EOtech 512 or an Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic to limit the cost of the optics to the $399 range. That way when all the accessories and optics are added I still come out less than $1,500. Anyhow time to take her out to the range this weekend and sight in.
