Started this project back In March of last year. Bought the lower and spent 2 mths figuring out what I was going to do. First thought, I was going the simple cookie cutter AR15. Then I decided I wanted to tweak it. So after I finalized the plan, then began parts search and purchase. I would wait to see parts on sale and get them. So after I got all the parts (luckily most before December) I set out to get the tools to put it together. I personally put every piece together. Now how much did I save? Here is a almost identical AR build https://delta3tactical.com/store/products/Todd-Jarrett-Competition-Series-Carbine-.html . All parts with shipping and also the tools only cost me $1031

Very very nice. Gives you a great sense of satisfaction, doesn't it? Built my 300 AAC Blackout the same way.

Thanks everyone. I really enjoyed doing it. I have another lower for a AR that I will be building for the wife. Just have to wait till the panic dies down enough for the parts to start showing up again. It will be a cake walk with hers now that I have done this one.

I like it. I really like the flattop all the way across the top....mine isn't like that. Just looks cooler to me for some reason.

Looks good. You do get a certain satisfaction from building one yourself. I have one that I'm finishing now and another waiting for my anodizer to finish for me

Took it to range to zero it in. My eyes are not so good but was able to get it in 3" group at 50 yards. Very pleased.

I like it!!

Just completed my first AR build (for a friend) a couple months ago and it got me ready in the mood to tackle a few project on my own ARs. Love the continuous flat top combined with the smooth round handguard, I assume it is a Yankee Hill?

You did good but must admit I don't think I have ever seen a Magpul flip up sight mounted in that direction!
