Default Mockstars AR

Here it starts boys. After not giving into any of the buying craze, I was able to save up some coin, and now that things are coming around, its time to spend that money.

It's not much to look at yet, but this is the beginnings of my first AR. These are all the parts I found since Saturday. BCM upper is in stock on their website. I ordered it Saturday and it arrived today. (Wisconsin Local) Found the BCG on armslist in GreenBay, and picked that up Sunday. Went to my LGS last night, just to look around, and found 2 GEN3 Pmags. Charging handle I found a couple months ago, and bought it just because it was there.

Big thumbs up to Bravo Company Machine. The amount of BCM SWAG that was also in the box (hat, oil, posters, stickers, black guns 2014 Magazine) was ridiculously unnecessary, but very much appreciated.

Upper is a BCM 16" Mid Length.
Bolt Carrier Group is a Les Baer Customs
BCM Gunfighter Charging handle. MOD-3
2 Pmags.

Still not sure what lower to get yet. I'd like to stay with BCM but they are hard to find.

Looks like you have a good start. Why not build your own lower? I'll probably be selling some ar parts soon and I just happen to have a stripped lower and a psa magpul moe lower build kit

Just got back home. I went and picked up a Magpul MOE handguard. This will most likely be replaced with a quad rail later on. My flashhider isn't pinned, so removing that and the front sight is not an issue. I may get rid of the sight and just get a different gas block later on. The possibilities are endless. As for the lower.....I'm not sure yet. It'll be a few weeks before I decide on that. If I can find a BCM lower great, if not I'll most likely build one from a stripped lower.

Definitely build your own lower. It is not hard to do and is more satisfying than buying one already put together.

You can get all the info needed online to do the lower urself, its fairly simple....

Agreed. It's more intimidating thinking about than it is actually doing it. There's a ton of informative videos on YouTube

I'm not intimidated by building my own lower. I would actually prefer to do so anyway as then I'm not replacing cheaper parts later. I did find a "blemished" stripped BCM lower, but not being able to actually see the blemish is making me reluctant to purse it.

My main concern was getting a high-end upper, barrel, and bolt. The rest I'm not so worried about.

I'll get it figured out, but it won't be completed this week.

On a side note......It's been 3 days since I emailed Les Baer Custom Inc., about what this bolt is made of with no response. It may be a good starter bolt, but for what I paid for it.......I'm finding I could have gotten better. I'm thinking the bolt and carrier are 8620 steel. I may ditch the bolt, and get something that is HPT, and MPI tested made of either 9310 or 158 carpenter.

^^^^looks like I lied.......It will be "completed" this week^^^^

First rounds will be shot tomorrow. CMMG MK-4 lower. Magpul MOE pistol grip. CMMG fit is perfect, and the color matches the BCM upper seamlessly. LGS did have Black Rain Ordinance stripped lowers, but for the price this was the more convenient option. Trigger group, trigger guard, and butt-stock will get upgraded soon.
