For those who dont know these are pretty high end with cold hammer forged barrels and adjustable gas piston system.
This one was in FDE which I like since I want to avoid the "Black stick" look many AR15s have.. those attract the human eye and as long as you use subdued colors its good to mix them into your rifle.

I got a super deal on the upper.
As it was I had a spare lower lying around and found a nicer stock to put on that lower.
Aaaand I had a spare EOtech lying around

Also added a RedX firing pin (with exteneded tip) to handle even the hardest primers.

Only thing left to do is a upgraded trigger group..
I have an economy trigger upgrade that I found in my parts pin and will put it in soon.

Very nice!

There is always room for another AR.
