I decided to build a black rifle before B-Rock "SuperAllah" Islamic Obama and the LIEberals ban all guns and force us to work in the salt factories for healthcare. Below are some pictures of the partly assembled product. I'm waiting on my Magpul grip (stock grips suck a meep) and buffer tube to come in next week, so it's not done yet.
Generic 16" carbine upper with Magpul FDE furniture.
I got a stripped lower from AIMsurplus.com. I originally wanted a Spike's Tactical lower, but by the time I got things sorted out with my FFL they were sold out. I wasn't waiting any longer. :SYNTHESIZER_STAB:
These things are amazingly easy to put together. The actual hard parts are the bolt catch and trigger guard pins, since one needs to be careful not to mar the finish with the hammer. I did ok.
I used this video guide in addition to various build guides I found online. I'll post pictures of the final product next week once it's done. I was a little apprehensive about it, and in a way it felt just like my first PC build. After I was done I was like "that's it?" and, "should have done this sooner."
