Default 1st AR build

Finished (well sort of, there's too many add on toys to check out yet) my 1st AR build. Now I'm broke cause all my money just went to ammo (damn Palmetto free shipping!)

Cold shoots great... Hot not so much but I think that's due to my lack of rifle experience...(this is my first ever rifle and AR build at the same time...Been a pistol guy for over 20 years... Go figure...;-).

I shot 250 rounds at Sunnyvale but I was pretty tired so my groups at first was 1.5" @ 50 yards without the scope and then later it was 5" at 50 yards but was tired....

Honestly it's easier to shoot my handguns than the 223/556 cause the ranges here in NorCal are limited.. I only have Sunnyvale and Los Altos to shoot this and I'm not a member.

My 22LR dedicated upper from PSA should help me with trigger 'memory' once it gets here. Gotta luv no tax n fee shipping...

I'm at Reeds at least once a week... Let me know if eny of you guys/gals wanna shoot there....

Lates....

You can go to Livermore Rod and Gun, Chabot, Metcalf and a few others as well. My favorite is Livermore, never had a bad experience there but I also go to Chabot occasionally and I've been meaning to get out to Metcalf for a while. I'll be at Livermore Saturday mornign (bright and early otherwise it'll fill up).

Thanks folks!

Barrel is 16". Handguard is 10".

The lower is really tight and I had to sand down my Magpul 10/20's in order to get them to drop free (common issue with the Magpuls). USGI mags no problem.

Next up..... Tac light.. Oh wait I just bought a 10/22 takedown today... There went my AR toy funds.. ;-P

Thanks...my 10/22 takedown is still in Jail til the 24th or so......I'll let ya know after that..

I do have a dedicated .22 LR upper from Palmetto (free shipping eh?) that I'll be throwing on this thing in a few weeks...

I bought the original CMMG .22 kit from Brownells but that shot like pure 'S--t' out of my 5.56 upper so I returned that and got a dedicated .22 upper in a few weeks instead.

Damn this gun stuff.... $$$$$$$ coming out of my A--!!!

But McLovimg it !!!!!!!!
