There are a very few things that I want to change/add... a Hogue grip, a sling... but it's done enough to make me happy!

REH lower.
RRA Advanced Tactical Hunter upper.
Command Arms FFS and FFB sights.
Standard A2 stock.
The scope... well... for now it's just a Simmons White-tail on an NCStar base... which is working well enough at present.
Functions flawlessly and gets about 1/3 MOA with my loads at 100 yards if I do my job.

How much was the stripped lower? Can magazine release use standard parts as well or is it confined to a certain non mil-spec design?

The stripped lower ran about $100 with the bullet button installed already. I don't think any bullet button by its very nature can be mil spec. I have no idea if it can be converted over to have a standard button, but the manufacturer is a Calgunner, REH.

Cool carbine, I was very intrigued by your lower. I did a quick Google search and fond the following CGN thread. Looks like, the manufacturer might be making lots of these in the near future if the infamous bill isn't stopped.

From Post #17
To remove you simply have to put the proper sized allen key or torx bit in the sleeve and remove. Replace with a standard sized mag catch/crossbar assembly and it operates like any other mag release.The button is simply round vrs. oval.

From Post #30

The reason for the design is to SAVE the customer $$ by not having to add anything to it to make it California compliant. You pay for the receiver and thats it.

To remove the button use a 3/16 allen wrench. I put a small amount of green lock tight on it so you may have to hold the catch with pliers so it won't spin. Take a standard catch and spring and using the hex head nut that came with the receiver replacing the spring and catch , will return it to a manual relase.

I guess you can say you are correct about not all the lower parts fit. The oval button will not fit the model 22 receiver. Thats it.

The people that have bought the lower told me they like it over all the other designs because it will not rattle loose.

Feel free to contact me for any addition need info. There is also an email address posted on the site rehorder@aol.com.

Thank you,

Richard Haase

Usually i am not a fan of the a2 stock, but it looks great on that rig. Good choice.

Very nice. Tell me about that handguard!!

It's the RRA half quad-rail. It lets you have the comfort of a non-rail handguard but then lets you have rails anyway. http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=440

Very comfortable. It's actually what sold me on RRA. Even though I don't have any accessories to add there yet, I'm seeing a time when I will.
