-Troy battlesights fixed front and rear 98
-Raddlock 37

Total $1340
Add another $50-$75 for shipping, tax, DROS. I could have shaved $300-$400 going with more basic parts.

Haven't shot with it, but it has a nice feel to it. Came with 3 detachable rail sections which is nice if I want to add any "junk" to it.

i feel kinda dumb for having over $1100 in this rifle when it is kinda bare bones but atleast its parts are decent and i got the lower for a good deal.
I hope you have a spare guitar! Ya I know the feeling, especially since complete M&P sports are coming back for under $900, but it was fun to build.
