    i don't see a thing wrong with it.

    the thing with the AR , building one is like that old "more than one way to skin a cat" saying.

    there are like a million variations you can build for various purposes.

    the prices on AR-15 hardware are kinda soft these days due to the recession and a glut of parts that was churned out in anticipation of some kind of ban back in 08-

    i figure once this glut of spares is bought up prices will go back up. so today is a good time to build.

    there are plenty of good quality parts floating around today and not as much of the "junk" stuff.

    ironically the ban on imported parts has helped eliminate most of the junk AR stuff--LOL!

    Looks like a good rifle set up. I have one very similar and love it. Fairly accurate to 600 meters

    i have that ARMS on one of my builds, beautiful front sight, it is VERY well made, operates smoothly and easily. I love it, one down fall (if any) is it cost me about 5X a normal front sight cost.

    Do an RRA 9mm AR15.

    They make the BEST one in the business!

    the bad thing about AR-15 is you catch those mall-ninja cooties, then you got to have one in every caliber there is, some shorties, then some retros--

    i am contemplating building one in .22 mag--just for kicks--
