Default FINALLY DONE WITH MY AR-15 BUILD!!!

About four months ago I decided to press the trigger on my AR build. I didn't want some pre-fabbed pos built by someone else. Me, I went for the "Tim Allen" approach. Make it the way I envision it should look like and perform. Ordered most of the parts from vendors on the top of the page. All in store purchases were at Ammo Bros. These guys are a great help and a very decent selection. Every paycheck I would set a small amount to the side. Hours of online surfing scouting for parts. Every detent, roll pin, spring, etc... I installed. This is my rifle.....

Upper & Lower: LAR
Gas System: Adams Mid-length Piston .750
Barrel: Adams Mid-length 16" Gov't .750 1:7 Voodoo
Lower Parts Kit: CMMR
Buffer Assembly: Mil Spec
Stock: Magpul ACS
BUIS: Troy HK style (front & rear)
Fire Control Group: Timney Skelontized w/ 3# pull
Extended Bolt Catch: Phase 5 Tactical
Trigger Guard: Phase 5 Tactical
Fire Select Switch: Battle Arms B.A.D. A.S.S. w/ Crank Lever
BCG: Adams Arms
Bolt: Adams Arms - Valkyrie
Charging Handle: VLTOR Gunfighter w/ Large Lever
Rail: Samson Evolution 9-EX
Vertical Grip: Troy Modular Combat
Grip: Ergo 2 Suregrip
Non-Rotating Trigger Pins: KNS
Optic: Aimpoint Comp ML2
Muzzle Brake: Surefire M556K

UPDATE 16OCT:
Took her to the range today and she performed admirably. I couldn't be happier. Cycled perfectly. Brass ejected to my 4 o'clock. LOUD!!! and loved it. This muzzle brake did what it was suppose to. Makes a lot of noise, kept the muzzle down, and had very little recoil.

Very nice! As HH stated, time to get it dirty. Let us know how it shoots and how you like the piston set up.

Thank guys. Looking forward to taking her to the range. As far as getting dirty, won't be too dirty with this gas piston. But I'll put her through the gauntlet.

Congrats on the build! How well does the Aimpoint FDE match the Magpul furniture?

The Aimpoint matches pretty well. Slightly different shade, but very close.

Looks nice. I've been looking at starting an AR build using the rifle length Samson rails. Conflicted between that or spending extra to get a VLTOR monolithic upper.

ky2970 - Before I bought my rail I was on the fence regarding a DI or piston system. Once that decision was made, I researched what rails were compatible. I chose the Samson because I just liked the way they looked. Plus I didn't want to get a four rail system. Like the way the smoother rails look and feel. I researched and looked at all the parts I wanted before I started my build. Plan ahead as some parts aren't compatible with others.

762.D3A7H - Thanks for the

roc - Pleading the 5th on that question. But it was a pretty penny.
