Default My AR-15 Looking Good!

Here is my AR-15 as it sits now. All i need is a new stock (anyone have any recommendations?), AFG and it will be exactly how I want it! I lucked out on getting the rifle right before the whole price gouging began.







Here is a group at 50 yards (excuse the two fliers at the bottom)


Parts:
NFA LW-15 lower
Stag Arms 1H Upper 5.56 16" M4 barrel
Magpul MBUS rear sight
Magpul MIAD grip
Magpul MOE handguard
Miculek muzzle brake
Primary Arms red dot

If anyone is interested in seeing this gun come together or want to watch it in action you can visit my youtube channel, link in my signature. I will be uploading more videos on AR-15 stuff when I have time to.

Looks good, for a stock I'd say Vltor or B5 sopmod or on a budget just a good old MOE.

I really like the polymer lower. Very light and the trigger is a nice crisp 4.5lb pull. It feels solid and I really enjoy shooting it.

I have a SOPMOD stock on my SPR and like it for bench or prone shooting, but prefer a narrower profile on my M4. I'd go with a CTR.

I got the multi reticle red dot and i like the way they look. Only thing is I have an astigmatism so the dot doesn't look perfectly round and as crisp as it should to me .

Is the CTR worth the extra bucks over the MOE? I know the CTR has the locking thing but is it really worth an extra $15-20?

^+1. I love that my CTR stock has little-to-no play. After you get your Magpul stock and AFG, might as well get a MIAD grip and go all Magpul!

Good looking build!
I prefer things not everyone else has. The CTR is a common, but trusted stock, but...
I LIKE THESE OPTIONS.
MAGPUL STR
http://shop.fostertacticalgear.com/M...?categoryId=-1

OR

The MORE econimical...
Safariland Superstock. (fits any tube mil OR commercial )
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1338940080?cm_vc=S014

And I highly reccomend this Single point sling... Great quality/ Good price!

Nice grouping, your target looks like it was done using .45 wadcutter.

Dang, I really like the STR but it's kinda pricey. I would also love to go with a 1 point sling as well.

It certainly does looked like a bigger caliber was used on that target paper! I have never seen holes that big from a.223/5.56 caliber.

These little white targets are very small so it may have looked like the holes were huge. Here is the same target, maybe this will clear things up.

I saw those about a week ago and posted somewhere here. I really dig those stocks. I also like the idea of having an emergency 10 round clip.
