    thanks! I still need to vet my wife's AR at the range. Too much work and not enough play time.

    I was able to get out to the range this weekend and start the break in/sight in process. If you excluded my flier the rifle grouped .6" center to center on my last four shots. So this rifle seems to have potenial with factory loads. :)

    sweet rifle...

    Yea, the hornady stuff is really high quality. I havn't spent much time playing around with loads for it, but they do a better job with the factory stuff than I've done with handloads thus far.

    What trigger did you go with? I just built a rifle similar an used the RRA NM trigger. Haven't fired mine yet either. Still waiting to get optics for it.

    I just have trigger that came with my LPK (Rock River LPK) so it is nothing to write about. After I get the the rifle broken it, I think I will Bill Springfield do the trigger @ 3lbs (I believe it is the best trigger for the money)

    Stop thinking about and start gathering the parts! The AR is just like lego's for adults...:bluelaugh: I miss my varmint AR I sold a few years ago... I may have to build one more... 24" bull barrel...now see what you did;)

    And thanks for all the compliments!

    You should at least get yourself the RRA NM trigger. It would be a shame to spend all that money building a precision rifle to leave that rough trigger in there. You can get one for about $85 shipped. Might even help with accuracy.

    Only things stopping me is I haven't decided exactly what specs I want to build it to. I also am looking for a parts list that shows all of the individual compnonets that can be purchased seperately. When I do build one I am going to have to buy it 1 piece at a time so my wife doesn't flip out about the cost. She still hasn't gotten over the $500+ that I spent on getting setup to reload my own ammo. :winkkiss:

    Nice job, looks great. +1 on the RRA match trigger. Or save up a little bit and go with a 3lb Timney trigger. ;)

    I agree. I have two of his triggers, one 3 lb and one 4 lb. For the money, they are very hard to beat. I also have a pair of RRA NM triggers and they are ok too, just a bit more expensive.

    Nice 6.8!

    I finally put in the Bill Springfield trigger ( I just purchase a complete trigger assembly that way I can send in the old trigger for a trigger job then drop it in my other AR), anyway it seem like a very nice trigger for the money. I can't wait to get to the range...to see if my groups shrink with a better trigger.:)
