My First AR My First Build My First Centerfire Rifle ...and I'm EXCITED! This thread is just a documentary of my build, not a how-to. It may be a month or even two before this is complete. First up is a hand matched Mega Machine Shop upper and lower receiver set from Carrico'z ARmory right here in WA. Great service from Mr. Corrico and the shipping was quick, although I'm only a few hours drive away from him so that helps.
