Default my girlfriend finally finished her AR-15

i picked up a few quentin 80%ers over the holidays , one of witch i gave to my girlfriend . after she completed her lower at dark souls work shop , i had it engraved for her with her prized eagle globe and anchor as she was a marine . we then had it coated in her favorite color OD GREEN in ceracote . we were lucky enough to score parts as they came to market during all the craze . A jd upper from so cal arms , a 15 inch samson rail from midway , a noveske kx3 and black hole weaponry barrel in 14.5 inch from surplus ammo , and a pieced together bolt carrier group that i sourced from multiple suppliers . she assembled the entire thing herself , and she couldn't be happier with the outcome . were going to the range this weekend to test her out , she was a rifle expert when enlisted so i hope she doesn't show me up

Both of you have nice looking builds, congrats on getting in on the Darksoul machining session before they stopped.

Did you pin the pig yourself? Just wondering, I had to take it somewhere as I didn't have the tool to pin my 14.5" barrel myself.

i was so bumbed about hearing he had to shut down the operation , i know somethin major had to of happened ( atf , fbi ) since he had worked months on perfecting his own 80% lowers only to have then in production for about a week . i hope they get their act together and continue to provide such excellent service to the cal guns community . i had my smith throw a spot weld on it for me , nothing major just a quick tac so if i ever want to remove it it wont be such a big deal .

thanks for all the comments guys , ill post a range report after this weekend

tom charged me 25$ for the simple safety select marks serial number and caliber . 50-60$ for the more complicated insignias he had to convert so his machine could engrave . hes a great guy with quick turn around . id highly recommend him

That's an awesome build, love the look of the rail and KX3! I might have to copy that look on my next build for the upper. Congrats to her!

You might want to blur out her name and DOB (serial number) on those pictures.
