I see some guys string trad bows by puttin a limb through their legs to pull up on. They do this until they crack a limb, they they buy a bowstringer.

To each his own as you said.

I will get the wrenches and vice blocks one day. I foresee myself getting addicted to customizing these guns.

I'm calling it "good enough" for now. Got my Troy battle rail on, the front sight grinded down, a brand new Leopold VX-III, a four round mag (to make it deer-legal), Geissele SSA-E trigger, and a bipod scavanged off another gun.

I think I'm ready to take it buck hunting.

Sweet BF, now you got me rethinking my optics for my latest build. Did you take off your front sight or grind it down? Why grind it down?

I had my gunsmith grind it down. I didn't want to shell out more than $50 for a clamp-on gas block and I didn't want to go with a cheaper set-screw block because I'm told they aren't as stable as clamp on or pinned blocks.

As for why I wanted the sight gone, it was in the way of my night scope. It catches the IR illumination and makes a halo effect happen in my field of view.

Both my night scope and this scope have quick detach rings so I can go back and to in the field.

Real nice stuff guys. I really like the AR-10s. If I was ever going to make a black rifle it would be a 308 for sure.

I wonder something?? How many of you made your guns starting with a 80%?? How many of y'all have ARs with no numbers?

Sorry if that's a bad question. I thought it was all ok and on the up and up. I ask because I wounded if everything works out ok on the 80% parts. Like is one maker better than another? Seems there is a lot of guys selling 80%. Is there much difference between one and another? Do they all work and or fit the same?

as I remember there is only like 5 actual makers of ar lowers and everyone else goes through them and puts their name on it. The quality on an 80% lower is really on how well you do on making it. If you have the right tools and a high attention to detail with the right skills you can make a high quality lower. The short answer is they are all the same

This is somewhat true. There's definitely a hand full of makers that put out most mil-spec lowers, but there are dozens if not more of manufactures out there that make variances. I wouldnt agree that they are all the same. Quality will vary as well but not to the point where one is bad just not excellent. Issues such as: forging/milling out of spec, color, tooling marks, metal grade etc. Dispite all that I buy blems all the time and they are GtG. I got a new psa lower on my latest build. Great lower.

^^^^in addition they have those anti twist kits for stiffness and accuracy. IDK if the lower has the extra pin holes to add the pins for stiffness or you drill them yourself.

Flying Coyote:

Those are nice looking rifles. I have a Smith & Wesson MP 15 OR rifle with FDE Magpul furniture and an OPMOD Vortex Strikefire II red dot optic. I am almost done with my AR build using a M.A.G. Tactical lower, Spike's Tactical parts kit, Windham Weaponry Vex upper with 20" barrel, CMC drop-in trigger, Harris type bi-pod and Barska sniper scope. When that is done, I will build an AR using a Spike's Tactical lower and a 18" 6.8 SPC II upper from Bisson Armory. I have the lower and the LPK installed. I just need to buy the upper. I do not know what scope I want to put on it though. What scope is on the top rifle in your picture?
