    Well, it's been a long time coming, but it's finally in one piece. I'd like to thank wichaka for the recommendations, ch139 for the upper, coctailer for ordering me the lower, and fortmoe for doing an excellent job pinning the flash hider. Now that this one is done it's time to build Jenny's :thumbup:

    Specs:

    LMT Defender Lower (complete)
    Colt 14.5" SOCOM M4 Upper
    YHM Phantom Flash Hider
    8 - 30 Round PMAG's

    Soon:

    Magpul MIAD Grip (have)
    Magpul CTR Stock
    GG&G MAD IRIS Rear BUIS

    Very Poor Pics (better ones coming soon):

    don't add rails plz. looks to sexy as is.

    what are you going to do for a optic? if none, why not get a carry handle instead of a BUIS?

    No rail system for me. I will be adding a tri-rail that attaches to the gas block/front sight, but it's very inconspicuous.

    I haven't decided on an optic yet, but I'm planning on getting one when funds allow. I'll probably get a carry handle as well, in the meantime.

    I had him attach it in a way that a professional gunsmith could manage to remove it, though it would destroy the flash hider.

    Maybe not his flash hider.

    But perhaps the KAC QD system.

    At any rate, a suppressor is at least a year down the road :)

    Not sure, as I haven't had a chance to fire it yet. From what I've heard from others, the PMAG's are great. I'll let ya know when I find out :thumbup:
