I FINALLY got the upper from my 'smith today. This build has been a long time coming.

RRA midlength handguards
PK Firearms A1 upper
generic BCG (thanks internet, no BCGs anywhere)

Lower:

PSA Blem
Fulton Armory A1 stock
Geissele SSA-E w/ PSA LPK
MOE grip
20 round PMAGs

Optic:

3x mini ACOG (TA33)

I absolutely love this rifle. It ran 100 rounds of Hornady 77 grain steel match today without a hiccup. The ACOG on the carry handle is freaking awesome. I heard SO many people say that it was horrible, but the transition from the irons to the ACOG is seamless, and I still get a good cheek weld. 100 yard shots are child's play. I can't think of a single thing that I'd change, we'll see w/ time. Every AR that I ever build will wear a Geissele trigger too. It's easily the equivalent to the nicest bolt-action trigger that I've fired.

Very interesting setup you have there, OP. I'm kinda digging it, though.

Thanks. I knew that accuracy, reliabilty and light weight were going to be my main concerns, so I tried to plan accordingly. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I just have to love a guy who puts a $200 trigger in a $49 blemished lower under an A1 upper with a lightweight barrel, an A1 stock, and mini ACOG. It says,"I am building a rifle for me to keep at the ready. I give not a whit what others think because this rifle is mine. I built it to shoot bullets from, not to shoot pictures of. It is a tool and so am I".

Great rifle!
