Nice build! How do you like the Luth-AR rifle stock? Haven't made up my mind yet between the Magpul PRS gen 2 or the Luth-AR Rifle stock.

Many thanks.. I really like it. It was cheaper than the Magpul I think. I just got the base stock then added the cheek rest. I do not have the extension on the back end. I really do not need it. I would get another one, which is really my why of saying that I would recommend it.
 
Thanks Big Man for the recommendation on the Luth AR rifle stock. Looking to add one to a build that I'm doing now.

I've probably got somewhere around 12 to 15 AR-15s and a couple of LR 308. I have been building them since 1984. Way before it was cool to own a black modern sporting rifle. LOL if anyone is currently considering building their own rifle feel free to ask questions on parts and actual build technique along with tooling needed. That's what I'm here for. Great to see people constructing their own rifles on a platform where we can actually talk about it and help each other out without fear of taking a boot to the backside LOL.

It is quite fun to build one. That is for sure.. Also agree with your assessment of the forum..

I wanted one since in 1980 or so but they were not mainstream back in those day!
I was never really a fan of the 5.56 initially, and we could not hunt with semi-autos back then (so all my purchases back then where with the purpose of hunting in mind). Course I used them in the national guard when I was in, but now adays with all the different calibers and the options, to use the phrase 'Legos for adults', it seems to be a different world. Plus they are less pricey than they use to be..

Yeah ever since the mid-90s AR-15 started picking up more businesses started making their own receivers from forges from the big companies. They've got all kinds of new stuff and new calibers out it's almost hard keeping up with it. Back in the 80s there were only a couple of Manufacturers one was Colt another was Olympic and you had ArmaLite. Most of those guns were anywhere from $900 way up to almost $1,700 for one rifle. Especially if you were looking at a Colt h-bar 20 inch barrel flat top with the removable carry handle. Are you still in quite a few of them. Now I've been building my own the way I want them and in the caliber I want. My latest caliber that I've been playing around with and reloading is 458 Socom and I'm a big fan.
