Awesome build. I might have to pick your brain on my next build. I have a few 80’s that need completing. I’m glad i’m not in california. I love Barstow, but i’m not going back.

Always glad to help out where I can. Your lucky you got out of Commiefornia. Can't wait to escape also to a free state like Idaho!...😎
Thank you Highboy, and Tuloko16, it turned out rather well. Now to build another upper with a 20 or 22 inch, 416 stainless steel fluted barrel, 5R rifling. For for trying my hand at longer range 800-1,000 yards shooting. I will be installing my Leupold 4-16 x50 LRT mildot scope, as soon as I get 20 degree rail to avoid having to buy another scope mount. I have an American defense QD scope mount already that I plan to use. Saving up for a better scope now.
Very nice rifle! Why the blade grip? You live in GA, no?
SgtSandman, no I'm in Commiefornia. It's part of the featureless build, to avoid it from being an "Assault Rifle." To be considered featureless per state law, cant have any of the following: ,flash hider, collapsible stock has to be converted to fixed stock, forward hand grip, or have the ability to wrap your hand all the way around the grip (The grip wrap currently complies with CA law), also can't have a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds.

That's this week. There trying to ban all AR and AK type rifles in CA.
I didn't list about the gas block on my AR10 build.

Gas block: Superlative Arms adjustable .750 diameter. To fine tune to the ammo.

Gas tube: Aero Precision rifle length, Black Nitride finish.
