Default New build is finally finished!

Well after "helping" a couple friends build their rifles I'm finally able to build another one for myself. I'm building a GPU. I was going to use an 18" rifle length but couldn't get any solid answers from anyone if it would worK. I found a great deal on a 16" mid length chrome lined 1x9 barrel so that's it. Here's what I'm thinking of using for the upper.

Doublestar upper
16" mid length chrome lined 1x9 barrel
Adams Arms piston kit
Samson Evolution handguard

I already have the lower built.

Are you sure you want a 1/9 barrel? Do you plan on using any heavier rounds?

Where it was for $265 they kept saying backoordered so I ended up getting it from Rainier Arms for $279. The other company was going to charge a $10 handling and $15 shipping. Rainier Arms only charges $7.95 flat charge for s&h.
