Someday soon I'll actually have all of my parts...

If it's not one thing, it's another with this build. Or, more accurately, the parts. I have gotten everything. Except ...

Default Someday soon I'll actually have all of my parts...

If it's not one thing, it's another with this build. Or, more accurately, the parts. I have gotten everything. Except the buttstock/buffer kit. Which has been reshipped by FedEx twice because they keep fucking it up somehow. The shop I got it from called me yesterday, apologizing profusely, and said it had been returned again. So they shipped it a different way, and he said he threw in some goodies for my troubles. I know there's at least one Pmag in there, but he said there were a couple of other things, too. So, they are trying to make good on their end and I appreciate that effort. They are now losing money on the deal trying to keep me happy.

Anyway...my upper is at the smith getting the flash hider permanently installed. Got my lower yesterday. Still have to put it all together. Got a really good price on the lower and it looks very clean and well done for a company I'd never heard of. I was ready to have to toss it and get a better one, but it looks good to go.

Soon I will have a rifle that'll work, but it won't be finished yet. I still need a new handguard and optics, but those can wait for now. It'll look like any other MOE AR in FDE for a while.

I'm just blabbering because I wanted to be putting it together today. I could do the lower, but that'd just annoy to finish with the LPK and not have the rest...I'm an all or nothing guy...lol.

Got my upper back from the shop this morning. Looks good. If I'm lucky I'll get my buffer tube/stock kit today. Then it'll all be here finally, but I'm not holding my breath.

Now I just need to find some freaking ammo so I can shoot it....

Ammo is the hardest thing right now. Doesn't help that I'm hard headed and refuse to pay the jacked up prices

Right there with you on that. No way I'm paying a buck a round. That turns into an expensive day at the range in a hurry.
