DAMN that's sweet!
SBR paper work went in and came back withen five weeks thanks to the help of the kind members here. I bought this as a pistol kit but couldn't see the point of building it as such after getting it. NDS Tantal receiver. The barrel is 10.5 inches long with a vortex type flash hider. Custom piston from hot barrel. I like the Kreb's safety selector but don't care for the price so I made my own by forming a piece of old receiver scrap and riviting to the selector. It works great and the price was right. The left side selector is attatched to the right side selector via a removable screw and is functional for safe and fire. I used a MP-5 take down pin/sling swivel for a forward sling point on the butt stock. Finished it off with Norrell's socom black. This was one of those rifles that went together perfect and shot 300 rounds without a single issue. The only bad thing about it is that the sight radius is very short. I think a Kreb's rail will take care of that problem when they get back in stock.

WOW! That's the first build pic in awhile that gets me excited. I'd like my Tantal kit to look like that right there!

Thanks, this is my first SBR and it was much more fun to build and shoot than a full size rifle. This sure is a handy little rifle. I should have the tax stamp back soon for a 7.62x39 SBR project that is ready to be put together as well.
Thanks for the pics.
Where was the pistol kit from? I am mainly interested in the FSB/GB.
I bought it off the EE at AR15.com. I don't remember who I bought it from. The gas block is standard Tantal. The front sight is a simple piece of tubing machined to slip fit ober the gas block. The front of the tube is drilled and tapped for two screws and the sight portion bolted on to it. I didn't make it but it is a very simple piece of work. The completed part is held in place by a set screw that passes throught the top and impacts the top of the gas block.
Any chance of close up pics?
I will try to get some more pictures but it may be a few days.
