Finally finished gathering parts and put it all together last night. The pics really don't do it justice, and the cerakote finish is hard to capture with a camera phone. In person it actually looks 10x better.

Cerakote and TM 80% lower by roccobro
7.5" pistol barrel by vytamenc
PSA blem upper
Samson evolution rail
PWS CQB comp
Spike's pistol buffer tube
Seekins Precision billet trigger guard
Magpul/Noveske STS selector
PA micro dot (still needs a tall mount)
Spike's Tactical BCG
Rainier Arms Raptor ambi charging handle

On to the pics!

Looks good! What color of cerakote is that? Hard to tell in the lighting with the cameraphone...

Edit: Can't tell if the tube has a cover on it...

Color is burnt bronze. I have several of your buffer tube covers and planning on picking up more! :)

Picture was only taken without the cover because it's still at my gf's house.

Sweet ride! Very unique looking pistol, I dig it. Range report? I always hear a lot about 7" barrel ARs having jams and feed issues.

Nice looking finish and I'm digging the Samson rail. Post up some action shots from the range when you get 'em.

Nice! Buying a blem upper with the intent to re-finish it from the get-go is a good idea :)

It's a prototype my good friend is looking to produce. Same concept as your standard bullet buttons but will be offered for much less once it's finalized.

OMG im in love with that upper I give this build 2 thumbs up.... If I may ask how much did putting that upper together run ya?

Thanks. Here's a quick breakdown of what the upper cost, minus the Cerakote.

PSA blem upper w/ forward assist and ejection port door cover - $75
VytamenC pistol barrel, gas tube, and low profile gas block - $157
PWS CQB compensator - $70
Spikes Tactical BCG - $114
Rainier Arms Raptor ambi charging handle - $67
Samson evolution rail $100
Barrel nut - Free

Total for the upper comes out to $583

Here's what the lower cost.
TM anodized 80% lower + machining = $160
PSA MOE Lower parts kit - $50
Noveske/Magpul ambi selector - $48
Seekins Precision billet trigger guard - $19
Spike's Tactical pistol buffer tube - $20
KNS pins - $20
Buffer and spring - Free
Prototype bullet button - Free

Lower cost - $317

Cerakote - $100

Pretty much comes out to $1000 even.

The PA micro dot was like $85 from the marketplace. :o

Nicely done!!! I love the cerakote job. That's about as close as you can get to gold plated. :)

good looking pistol. I did mine in Burnt bronze too, and you are so right about camera phones not doing this color justice. It's just too bad everyone and their grandmother has this color now. :(

By the way, I believe what you meant to say was you already have/had a zero round sled, and the single shot pistol was built with that sled.

Pistol looks great. What's the length of the Evolution rail?

Sure thing! I have a Noveske KX3 going on another 7.5" pistol, so I can give you a side-by-side comparison once everything's put together. :D

Another linear compensator I considered was the Levang (~$35).

Pistol looks great. What's the length of the Evolution rail?

Rail is the 7.6" version. I wanted a little more rail to cover the comp and I found it for a good price on ARFCOM. Worked out nicely.

Nice. I'm going with a 9" version on a KX3, but the 7.6" is looking good.

My other pistol is going to be a 7.5" barrel + kx3 with 9" rail. Love that look.

Added some FDE, yay or nay?
