Introducing the Dark-15 my first 80% build
 
Just finished this build and took it to the range a few days ago and ran 60 flawless rounds through it.

It's chambered in 7.62x39. I used ASC 7.62x39 10 round mag that fed perfect. I even used my magpul standard 5.56 mags because I like the look better than the ASC mags and it would feed 6-8 rounds, so I kept it to 5 rounds and it fed perfect everytime.

Not 1 Fail to feed or fail to fire. Lets just say the boom was turning heads all the way down the firing line. It was louder than the 16" .308 AR-10's down the line.

The first shot out the pipe was kinda scary, but immediately put a smile on my face and made me giggle like a little girl.

Feel free to ask questions or tell me how I did or what I could improve.

Without further ado the PrOn:

I like it, what does it weigh?

Specs?

Nicely done! If loud is a problem, a flash hider instead of the brake will quiet it a little - but not much. Even a 5.56 pistol is loud... but fun!

Really? Seems like he used guns a lot to me.

Holy batman that's an awesome 80% pistol build!!! What did you use to finish it? Cerakote, Duracote, or annodize because its the dark knight of 7.62mm 80% pistols!

That looks very clean. Who did the engraving?

lavey29 12-10-2012 5:13 PM

Very cool build and I was wondering the same thing as above, is that painted engraving or just stamped on white color?

CrazyPhuD 12-10-2012 6:47 PM

Like the selector markings. Nicely done and I would say the batman symbol is engraved from the second picture.

BranNutz 12-10-2012 7:25 PM

Thanks for the kind words guys.

The lower was anodized prior to engraving, All marking were CNC engraved at Aimsmall's San Diego Build Party. It's just bare aluminum at the moment but I would like to fill it in with yellow maybe at some point. I'm just not sure how I would achieve that yet. Here is a better picture, the light from the flash is making the bare metal look white.

What tools did you use for the build? Looking at assembling my own rather than having someone else do it.

Thanks for the reply. It does look white with the flash. I have an 80% lower that is already anodized also and was hesitant to add some engraving not knowing how it would look bare metal but yours looks fine to me so thanks for sharing the close up pic from your build.

Here is no flash so you can see the metal.

I only assembled my lower myself and there was not much to it really if I remember correctly. It was my first time so I had some help.

There was one long allen wrench for the grip screw 3/16 I think but don't quote me. An armorers wrench for the buffer tube nut, and something to help you forcefully tap the pins in place once all your springs are in place for the trigger assembly. That last part goes alot smoother with 2 people.

Then depending on your lower mine uses one small allen wrench for the bolt hold open latch, but some just hammer a pin in.
