For the muzzle device, I decided to go with the Yankee Hill Phantom as the standard A2 is ugly to me. I know it works well but, it's just blah to me!:s0112: Anyway, I watched a video of a flash hider shootout and the YHM Phantom did extemely well suppressing the flash.

Just waiting on the stupid flash hider now. Tracking shows it's been sitting at the Edgewater, FL post office for almost ten days!:mad:

No need to wait, slap it together and install the MD when it shows.
A great forum member offered me the opportunity to do the assembly at his location as, I don't have all the tools or space here in my little mobile home. (no shop available) So, want to get all parts together and put on at one time.:)

Sometimes, making a trip to sell a gun turns out real well for me! Just sold a shotgun and while waiting around found this Leupold VX-Freedom AR 1.5-4 X 20 with box and all papers plus, mounted to an Aero Precision mount for under 2 bills! As Hannibal Smith used to say, "I love it when a plan comes together!":s0112:

This will go on the new upper build!

Tracking update shows the flash hider finally made here to Corvallis and will be delivered on Monday. Ordered that thing on 6/11 and it's just now getting here!:(

YHM shut down temporarily due to COVID. I’m waiting for the R9 to hit distributors and I’m certain the virus crap has delayed that!

I’m free all next week, so just hit me up.

Did your rail come with a wrench of some sort to be used with a 1/2” socket?

Its nice, but you don't need a shop to build AR's. I mounted a small vice to my tool box top and do it all right on my tool box. All the tools you would need could be put in a fishing tackle type box, and a small vice you can clamp on to a sturdy bench will do. I do recommend "lapping" the upper where the barrel extension seats to the upper receiver. Even the higher end uppers are not perfect. The lapping tool is not super expensive either. It is well worth it in my opinion.

I'm about to get my upper going too.

Think I have about everything, complete lower is still processing and hasn't shipped yet. Have some ammo on the way too, not enough lol but a few hundred rounds.

I have small rubber/nylon hammers already but need roll pin punch set and vise block.

Looking forward to seeing the end result! I've got my lower already put together and just need to get a sling for the complete project now.:)
