My First AR-15 coming along nicely

Here is how I got it, added rings, Scope and Bipod



Did not like the handguard at all! Did a trade deal and ended up with another Upper, BCG, Handguard, and Timney trigger. So I changed those all out.





Then My boy wanted to help me paint it, so here is how it sits now


He was making funny faces and this one cracked me up, the "dont mess with me look"

    What did you end up doing with all the other extra parts (upper, handguard, bcg, etc...)?

    What you want for all of it?

    I have a Spikes lower built that needs almost all of that stuff for my .300 BLK build.
