I put a CMMG 20" MedCon barrel, Midwest Industries low profile gas block, YHM Smooth Rifle Forearm, and an Ergo Target Grip on my sniper AR. Drew (aka Drawn) from Airbrush Armory sprayed Duracoat on the forearm for me and he did a great job. I had him mask the three small rails so they would remain black. I like the contrast that it provides.

Ok, let me see if I can recall everything:

Stag lower
RRA 2-stage trigger
PRI Tac latch
Magpul enhanced trigger guard
Ergo Tactical Deluxe grip w/palm rest in FDE
Magpul PRS in FDE
CMMG 20" MedCon upper with MI low profile gas block
Yankee Hill Smooth Rifle Forearm w/End Cap
Yankee Hill Phantom flash hider
Yankee Hill Bipod Adapter
Harris S-BRM Bipod
Armalite one-piece 1" mount
Mueller Tac II 3-10x44 scope
RifleGear take-down pin with pull ring
RifleGear ProMag w/Magpul 10/20 magazine
And a Bullet Button

I think that is about everything.

Looking pretty good. Another great job from Drawn. Drawn, you are the man! :D Look out for a Foliage Green build coming up in the future. ;)

OH man, it took FOREVER for YHM to get those to me. I finally got them in about two weeks ago!

This is a "rebuild" of a previoius configuration - it would have cost a lot less to do it right the first time :eek: I could build a similar upper for around $675 using my retail prices - a little more to add the PRI tac latch and the Phantom flash-hider. I just plugged this all in to Excel and based on the retail prices on my site this rifle would total approx $1420.00 in it's final configuration without optics. Damn, did I really spend that much... You could shave quite a bit off of it by not adding things like the pull ring, PRI tac latch, enhanced trigger guard, Phantom flash-hider, etc... - but whats the fun in that! :D

Isn't YHM great like that. :rolleyes:

You make a $1000 order and they send you $300 worth of stuff.
Then $80 worth in a couple weeks.
3 days later they ship $400 worth and 5 months later you get the last $220 worth of the order...

I have had random little boxes show up that are 3 orders back and the only way to figure out when you actually ordered those parts is to go back though old PO's. :mad:

Yes, their model makes it very difficult for a small retailer to stock their items reliably. Midwest Industries is the exact opposite, I place an order and they fill it in full usually the next day!
