    I haven't a chance to go to the outdoor range yet... I'm hoping to next weekend. It's driving me nuts!

    Man, I don't know how you do it. I'd be Jonesing by now. The research, the planning, the assembly, the excitement, the anticipation....I'd be a basket case. I guess I'm still a kid at heart.

    Oh, believe me...it is driving me nuts! I live in the country and have thought about just going out in the backyard and firing off a few rounds. But, there's about 250 head of cattle back there as well and for the last 2 weeks they have all been hanging out and grazing all around my property line. I only have 2 acres... that's surrounded by 200 acres of pasture. If they start heading to the other side of the pasture I'll go back there and fire off some rounds.

    Well, I couldn't take it any longer....

    I fired off 10rds from my backyard this afternoon. All 10rds fired and ejected flawlessly.

    There is barely any recoil... I was amazed about just how smoothe it felt while shooting. Almost felt like shooting a BB gun...seriously.

    Now I really can't wait to get to an outdoor range to see what kind of groups I can get at 50yds and 100+yds. That will be at least another week.

    Oh me JS can't you take tomorrow off. Like call in sick or something. You got this puppy yipping with the 15 shots. I want to know how he bites at the 50 and 100yd line. You might have to adjust his eyeball a little but I'll bet he's dead on. Good luck and standing by.

    Just came back to this thread after a long time and have to comment of the excellence of your photography almost as much as the beauty of the AR. Well done, indeed!

    Finally! Range Trip!

    Finally...! I made it to the range. It was raining most of the morning, but that didn't stop us!

    My AR shoots like a dream, no issues what so ever... smooth as butter! I sighted it in and it preformed flawlessly. I was shooting at 100 yards and was achieving 1" groups with ease...

    Here are a few pics...

    Now that's what I am talking about JS. Something just told me from the looks of that puppy and the way you was putting it together that it was going to be a winner. Glad to here that it is. Now all your buddy's wil be hounding you to build them one. It's a beauty. Now back to drooling.
