    Well I went to oak grove ventures today! Pick up my first ar15! I'm pretty excited! It's a plumb crazy lower with a mega upper! Both come with life time warranty also got it with a quad rail and magpol flip up sights along with a pmag! Enjoy!

    Looks great. Will the front sight mount on the gas block? Will give you a longer sight radius. Enjoy it!

    You can only keep the symptoms under control with large doses of .223 taken through Pmag injections.

    I see it now, the rail on the gas block is lower than the hand guard rail.

    Very happy with .223! Gonna be a great plinker and varmint gun! I will spend more money on the .308 for it will have to more accurate and for longer shots! It's kind of a special day I'll be even happier when I can shoot it!

    My 1st AR was a Bushmaster DCM. I started shooting Hipower matches. 200/300/600 yards open sights. Think I figured my drop at 600 yards was 87 inches. However if I wanted to shoot 308 I would have to use an M14. didn't have that kind of money.

    The magpul flip up is plastic and well melt on a gas block.

    Are they still selling this model for $600?

    Yes they are still selling for 600$ I felt it was a fair price! The barrel is only 16" it looks long from the angle I took the picture at! The guys in there are great to work I origanly was gonna do an ffl transfer but found this instead! I felt that with the lifetime warrantys on both upper and lower I couldn't go wrong!

    Oh pizza was great btw lol

    Congratulations! I just got my first AR too. I got the Sig Sauer M400, and went to the rock quarry on Larch last weekend and put 300 rounds through it, and had a blast. I even got my mom to shoot it, and had a hard time getting it back from her..LOL

    And congratulations making it off Larch mountain with your lives. I have never to this day, seen so many idiots blasting away without a care in the world about safety as I have there.

    Worst part that day was the snow. I couldn't believe how many people were trying to make it up the hill in two wheel drive cars. Clogged the road up for an hour or more. didn't have any problems with crazies that day. been there seen that though.
