    I know it's off topic and I'm sorry but I'm super stoked about it so I have to share this with somebody!

    This is just a bit of documentation of my first AR15 build (more like assembly). First up is a parts list:
    Upper:
    Mega Machine Shop Forged Upper
    Daniel Defense Cold Hammer Forged 16" 1:7 Stripped Barrel
    BCM Bolt Carrier Group - Auto
    Midwest Industries 10" Free Float Quad Rail Handguard
    Midwest Industries T Series Trim Ring
    BCMGUNFIGHTER Charging Handle (Med. Latch)
    YHM Low Profile Gas Block
    Carbine Length Gas Tube from BCM
    BCM Forward Assist Assembly
    Ejection Port Cover Assembly from BCM
    A2 flash hider and crush washer (for now)

    Lower:
    Mega Machine Shop Forged Lower
    DPMS Lower Parts Kit
    Ranier Arms Modified Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard
    Magpul ACS Collapsible Buttstock (Black)
    Milspec Buffer Tube Assembly
    Magpul MOE Pistol Grip

    Optic:
    Eotech XPS 2-0

    Here are some pictures of what I have so far.
    Hand matched MEGA upper and lower receiver from Carrico'z ARmory right here in WA!

    Nice! Ive been wanting to build another AR for awhile now. I want it to be flattop with a 16" mid-length 1:7 barrel free-floated.

    Sounds like a nice plan. In 5.56? There are some great choices for midlength barrels. Are you going to build all of it or are you looking for a complete upper with those specs?

    You won't be dissapointed with Mega.

    I built ontop of the no rollmark lowers they made for JCWeaponry. One of these guys:

    EBR? Oh, I get it. Evil Black Rifle. LOL. Looks like a great project. Hey, maybe that's just the ticket for sneaking another one in under the nose of SWMBO*.

    Wow, David, that is a very low serial number! Gotta love that unmistakable mega finish.

    Looks like fun

    Will you be going with an A2 iron site?

    If so, do you know if it will interfere with the optics?

    A carbine length gas system w/ a 10" rail would not be compatible with an A2 front sight post. The rail would have to be no more than 7". I specifically chose a stripped barrel because I planned on running an optic and don't want sights in my optic at all. However, to answer your question, an A2 would give a center or lower 1/3co-witness with an unmagnified optic such as an Aimpoint or Eotech depending on the mount. No idea what would happen with magnified optics.

    That is just a stock photo. Mine is around 150 or so. But they were made only for one distributor (JC Weaponry) and I believe originally was started on SigForum.com (hence the SF in the serial number).

    Got it about 14-15 months ago now for around $130.

    Oh, okay, that's still low. I like the no-logo, very clean. But I've been a fan of the Mega logo from the first time I saw it. Way better than the Spikes Tactical "spider." Blech.

    I simply wont have time to take good pictures for probably a couple weeks so here are some living room pictures so you guys can see what she looks like. I have no pictures from before I RAN HER HARD so she's got some scuffs and scratches. All part of the beauty! I could not be more happy about how this gun runs, I think I did darn good for a first build. And now that I have some experience with her I've made a little shopping list of accessories to come soon (feel free to weigh in on my choices):
    -A high quality quick-detach vertical foregrip like LaRue's FUG or the Tangodown Stubby VFG.
    -Troy 2-point sling and sling mounts
    -Rail covers, probably larue index clips, I'm open to ideas here.
    -LaRue offset 1" quick-detach light mount holding a Fenix (not sure on model yet)














    This last picture has me thinking about chopping her to 14.5 and pinning a FH. thoughts?
    Sorry about the quality of these, I officially promise better pictures by the end of the month.

    So who wants to shoot her? Gravel pit meet?

    Just a suggestion, but if you are going to run both a light and a VFG get a pressure switch.

    Looks good. I've been wanting to get a DPMS AR-10 for a while. Can't decide on lr308l or lr338l.
