    1st Custom Build...step by step

    Well, I received the RRA lower parts kit for my stripped POF lower, including the RRA two stage trigger this week and decided to put everything together last night.

    Here's everything laid out.... POF lower receiver, RRA lower parts kit, RRA two-stage trigger, Ergo grip



    After installing the bolt catch and trigger... I installed the mag release and take down pin before I started taking pics.


    View of the trigger (looking in) after the install...


    Hammer, safety and grip installed....


    Everything seems to working just fine. I'm a happy camper...

    Next on the list... LMT Stock!

    VERY NICE! I'd like to take on a project like that. It'll probably be next year, though.

    Thanks guys...

    Here's another quick update and new addition. I installed the LMT buffer tube assembly tonight along with the CQD sling mount, All mil spec. I'm going to put a LMT stock on it later. Now I can start focusing on what kind of upper I want to get...or build. I've really enjoyed putting this lower together myself.

    Now for the pics...

    Hey JS you done such a good job on the lower how about just getting a kit for the upper? Then when you take it out to the range and that puppy is barking right along the other guys will be drooling all over. That is great satisfaction. Be ready for them to want you to build them one or help them out. Great job and good luck with it.

    upper update

    Well, I've decided to build my upper... from the ground up.

    I decided to go with the VLTOR MUR-1 upper receiver. I'll start looking into barrels, handguards, etc. next week sometime, I'm not sure yet of what I want.

    Here are some pics of the VLTOR upper... I just received the upper this morning.

    Thumbs up another piece of the puzzle...

    another update...

    I received the barrel that I'm going to use today... It's a Noveske 16.1 Recon 5.56mm match grade 1/7 twist barrel, came with a MP matching bolt and Noveske gas block. It's all coming together, I just need a few more items. Railed handguard (probably a LaRue), bolt carrier, charging handle, flash suppressor and front and back sights.

    Here are some pictures...

    Bolt Carrier

    I just ordered and received my "Youngs Manufacturing NM" chrome bolt carrier... Although it didn't come with a bolt cam, firing pin or firing pin retainer... I had to go back and order that... The bolt came with the Noveske barrel.



    In it's new home after receiving the bolt cam, firing pin and firing pin retainer...

    What, no range report??

    You expect us to believe that a weekend came & went and you just "admired" your new rifle?
