  • Quarantine is gonna break me!

    I've been surfing the web like its my job since I've been working from home. I ordered a Wilson Combat matched lower/upper kit . I picked WC because they have provided stellar customer service anytime I have contacted them. This will be my first AR build. I have not decided on a barrel yet but I was thinking a WC in 5.56. It should be a fun project if I don't go broke first. AR1.jpg

      I've ordered a LaRue MBT-2S trigger(wanted the Triggertech but it is 3x the price.), Seekins trigger guard, Radian Talon GI safety, Geissele buffer tube, H2 Super 42 buffer spring. maritime bolt release & mag release. Once I recoup some money I'll start working on the upper. I'm thinking Daniel Defense 13.5" m lok hand guard & a 16" 5.56 barrel of some sort.

        I have used/built many uppers and Wilson Combat are among the FINEST quality available. Their barrels are unbelievably accurate, and comparable to custom manufacturers. I used to use Troy handguards, but now use Midwest Industries almost exclusively. Also, Wilson Combat gas block/gas tube assemblies are superb. My latest build was a Wilson Combat .458 SOCOM kit on an Aero upper/lower assembly.

        If you go .223/5.56, get a barrel in .223 Wylde chambering.

          I was looking at the 223 Wylde & the Wilson Combat barrels. Their 223 Wylde is only available in 18" & I was planning on a 16" barrel. I still have some time to decide so I'm not sweating it just yet.

            Got a couple parts in. This is my first AR build & it seems to be going together ok. I'm still waiting on the bolt catch & trigger guard are still shipping.

              The lower is complete & I bought a Wilson Combat 16" 1-8 556 barrel. I'm going to drop it off at Kilo Delta Tactical for a Cerakote job. The rest of the upper is still naked but I'll get there eventually. 556 (768x1024).jpg
