View Full Version : Ahhh just about down with my first AR build

This has been nearly a year in the making. I bought the Spikes Zombie stripped lower from RifleGear in April $109+DROS
The Spikes LPK from Sportsmans Depot $70
The 6 position Mil Spec stock from BlackTydeTactical $39
The Upper is a 7.62x39 from Galati Int though I am pretty sure it is all Model 1 Sales $530 shipped

Without upgrades under $800

Upgrades include
Enhanced Firing Pin from Galati
Wolff Enhanced Firing Spring from the Wolff site(didn't need it so it's not installed)
Ergo Tactical Grip from JabTac
BAD Lever(and rifle mat ;)) from Maui Wowie
Limbsaver from Cheaper Than Dirt
10/30 C Products mag from the gun show

I took it out to the range without the Limbsaver, BAD Lever and Ergo grip last week and it ran perfectly. Not one issue, over 200 rounds of mostly Wolf Lacquer, and some Wolf Polymer, Winchester, and Zombie Maxx. I really think the upgrades are going to make it much more fun to shoot(was WAY fun already), the original grip was too skinny, I am new to AR's for the most part so charging the rifle with my off hand was odd feeling, and mostly for my girlfriend I think the limbsaver will be awesome, it will also help me out too because the stock has a sharp ridge that was really irritating my face every time I pulled the trigger so I think the extra LOP will really help with that. All in all I would recommend all of the vendors that I bought from even though Galati sent me 2 5 round ASC mags instead of 10 rounders and they told me the upper did not come with the enhanced firing pin ... it looked identical to me but I still swapped it out with the "new one". Very very happy with my new weapon- I keep envisioning zombies rolling down my alley :52::52:

The only other upgrade I am planning on doing is adding a rail to the stock handguards so I can use my grippod... Maybe a breach type flash hider, and a sling to participate in Appleseed

Oh yeah since it's in the pic.. VooDoo Tactical bag $72 at Bullseye Sport in Riverside - I got the 46" so I can fit my semi-auto 12 gauge and .40cal S&W oh it's on

Thanks man, me too. I was thinking of doing a complete zombie build when I bought the lower but I like the way it has turned out.
