Hey all,

New to Calguns...hope you're all well.

Proud owner of some H&K pistols, 1911's, AR's, shotguns, bolt action 308's, etc.

Way too much money in this hobby. :eek: Then again, if I lived outside of the PRK I'd have a heck of a lot more I guess.

Anyhow, cheers. :)

Welcome to Calguns. We're enablers, not a support group, so be prepared to come with a small AR dependence, and leave with a serious OLL additction.

LOL - thanks. I like enablers. Helps me drop the guilt/shame around all the money I've spent. "My Calguns peers told me it was ok!"

Too late uclaplinker, as I already have a serious OLL addiction. ; )

Welcome aboard, and yes it appears you have already contracted the Black Rifle Disease.

Nice taste in optics, too.

A real addict has no unbuilt lowers, or at least doesn't have them for more than a few weeks he/she waits for parts. ;)

That's a USO on the top, is it not? What do you think of it?

I'm curious... how did you get into OLLs without CG? I know it happens, but it would be interesting to hear your story...

Hey uclaplinker,

Well, I read and studied for months on AR15.COM

Ordered three lowers directly from Lauer Custom Weaponry (for CHEAP, $99 each), and had them ship to a local "garage FFL" willing to do cheap OLL transfers.

I read up on what I had to do to build them into legal OLL AR15's. Followed the letter of the law...and built 'em.

Bought the LMT stocks and lower parts kits, and put them together myself using an armorers book and DVD (and help from AR15.com). Took them down to a local shop and had them pin mags in my first two, and later the same shop sold me the california rifles stock for my third build.

I then bought complete uppers (all LMT & Troy) from a vendor off of AR15.COM's Equipment Exchange (fully assembled and test fired). I used Wes at MSTN.BIZ
