    I finally received the rest of the parts that were on backorder so that I could assemble the upper.
    18" fluted SS barrel with mid length gas system.
    Matrix upper.
    ICE BCG.
    15" FF tube.
    Low profile gas block

    I have a few 80%'s on order through one of those crowd funding things. Guess we will see if I ever get them. Nice work!

    Here is where I started with mine

    After Cerakoting

    Built out into &.62x39 AR

    I did however make a Classic blunder that requires a "Custom" detent on the rear takedown pin

    Who made the 15" tube? and why the fluted barrel. I like this look

    Hey Poobah. The flutes are to lighten the barrel. I guess he'll need that if he looks anything like his avitar. They also give more surface area to cool.

    Fluted barrels are lighter, more ridged and run cooler than non-fluted barrels

    The fore ends are made by MI https://www.midwestindustriesinc.com...ategory_ID=149


    I ended up using the 15" tube on the 2nd rifle. (16" carbine)

    The first one (W/18" fluted SS barrel) is now sporting a 12" tube.
