    Just like the title says. This is the thread to show off your new purchases, builds, and gather ideas. I`ll be starting it off with my latest, SAA SA15 I scored for $600 OTD used from SAA Saturday afternoon. Some of you may recognize it from TFB, it was yesterday`s POTD (which makes me very happy). It`s obvious someone was playing with RIT dye and ended up making it Jacksonville Jags Blue. Still, I like that it`s been dubbed "The Makita M4". The sharper-eyed observers (or those looking to oust me as a fake, egads!) may also notice the differences between TFB`s photo and the ones I am now uploading. To explain those discrepancies I was playing around in some photo-editing stuff. The plan now is to install either a Free-floated rail system gifted from a friend or B5 keymods as well as B5`s SOPMOD butt and a 1-4X scope in my Burris PEPR mount. I`d also like to replace the barrel with a 16-inch match grade 1:8 with a Wylde chamber. I`d have sent some better photos to TFB but I couldn`t keep my hands steady in the rain.

    That's an interesting looko_O.
    These are all I got so far. Top to bottom. 450 Bushmaster up on Anderson lower, AR10 PSA put together, MP15 sport with other stuff on it, an imposter:D, 20" 223 Wylde I pieced together with a bunch of parts off the net. I wonder if Rit would hold up on a SS barrel?

    holy hell dude. The first step in getting help is acknowledging you have a problem. My wife has less pairs of shoes :)

    I don't have photos (readily available) of all my AR's, but here's a few.


    My 6.8SPC "Hunter" AR (full length)
    image.jpeg

    My (current) primary go-to AR (middy-5.56)
    image.jpeg


    One of several "vanilla" M4 types (for my domestic troops), some are middy's, some are carbines.
    image.jpeg

    I have a "slab-side" Colt AR15A2 Sporter-II with A1 rear sights (from the factory) I bought back in '87.

    I have 3 80% lowers I have yet to machine out, but one will be an SBR, and the other two will be pistols (at first).

    So.... at least I'm not as bad as Iron Monster... LOL

    The only cure is more. ;)


    I'll post pic of two of mine when I go to the range...
    Maybe my ARs will almost look as good as the ones you guys have. :(

    I like it,what do you think of the ACS-L? I`m thinking about trading all my blue furniture in for a nice buttstock and the ACS and the L are of interest. Does it have much wobble?
