Default First AR

Would like to present my first AR. I welcome any comments or suggestions.

A Little background, I started thinking about an AR at what I felt was the peak of the concern regarding potential rifle ban. Like many, my initial though process was to get my hands on an AR before it was too late, however I also had some criteria such as versatility and not just limited to CQB application. Other attributes were a reputable manufacturer based at the time on availability. Of course the cool factor was in the back of my mind but I understood that the modification options are endless, so the focus became to cover my base. My project began from top down rather than ground up with locating the upper, followed by the matching lower. The initial BCG that I had in mind was the LMT enhanced group, but this was upgraded to the fail zero, which was the only major non-LMT component. There was not much after that...the BUIS was inevidable.

Much thanks to my cousin for his help and guidance.

LMT Defender lower
LMT upper: 20" match grade 1:8 with Yankee Hill rail, fail zero BCG, and Matech 600m rear sight.
Stock is SOPMOD original from LMT with dual action trigger.
Other additions: Harris swivle bipods. Of course, there are more additions and mods that will be made, but I feel that the project is headed in the right direction.

Thanks!
