Finally got my 1st AR ordered

Thanks guys for posting in my thread a week or so ago when I was asking for opinions on my 1st AR.

I finally decide on what I wanted

I got a BCM Lower, BCM 14.5 with A2XFH, magul MOE handguards, TROY flip up RBUIS, a PA 3rd gen micro red dot.

I picked up the lower this past Wed from my FFL and the rest should be here by Wed or Thurs.
Once I get it all in and snapped together I'll put up some pics with my digital camera but thanks everyone for their input and help

Way to go DAPS!

BCM should have received my USPS Money order and FFL last Thursday. How long did it take to ship, once they receive it? And did they notify you?

My upper went out right away and is supposed to be here on Monday.

I went with the 16" SS Middy upper, Magpul RBUIS, MI 9" Non free float and a PA Gen 2

I actually got mine from a BCM distributor G&R Tactical. About 3 days but everything I read BCM ships quick.

Man finally after all this time and waiting

$350 I think is what it was. The same if I had bought it from Bravo.

Thanks DAP's, ya, I got the email from Grant that he had them back in stock, about an hour after I had mailed out the USPS check to Bravo...Bravo did process my upper and rail super quick, so I'm assuming I'll hear something soon regarding the lower shipment.

I'm hoping to get on the range by the end of this coming week...might be too optimistic, probably early part of the following week...

I'm subscribed to this thread so please keep us posted so we can compare notes?

First range trip, I'm planning on a quick bore clean, maybe a drop or two of CLP on the moving parts, then run 50 or so rounds sighting in the irons and PA Gen 2 red dot.

Only sad thing for is the stuff will probably be in this week but won't be able to get to the range until next week because of other things going on

Very nice. The upper sounds like a good set up as well. Did you happen to order the Gunfighter charging handle?

No I held off on the Gunfighter for now. Since this would be my 1st AR I wanted to play with a standard mil spec one so I would have a better idea of which one would suit me better.

From reading reviews I do plan on get one. I just don't know which.

I've been dwelling on get an AR for a while now and finally pulled the trigger and I think I will have an awesome rifle now that I've done a lot of research

I spent a couple of hours online, trying to figure out the exact same thing...Being new to AR's I figure I'm not going to "sort" all of this out overnight.

I'm thinking it will be sometime next week before I can get all this together to make the first range trip.

Regarding slings, Boonie Packers to Vickers Blue Force, I think 2 point is the way for me, but not quite sure on how to attach it without further breaking the bank.

I'm thinking a 2point also Jitterbug, probably a Vickers but like you i have no clue how I plan to attach it.

AR's are like Legos for big kids

I just posted this question on M4Carbine, Obviously I don't have a clue either.

Vickers has a piece of wire you can wrap around the front sight to give a side mount option, for $20.

Not sure on the butt stock though. All my AR funds went into the upper, lower, ammo and inexpensive sights.

Wife's going to have a fit...she thinks we should be spending money on frivolous things like, retirement, garage door opener and a new mattress.

Yeh I've spent all my AR money I had set a side. I don't want to use other funds for it, so I'll just replenish over the next couple of weeks or use part of my bonus money I'll be getting in either March or April to buy some more accessories.

That should give me enough time to figure out what sling. I have the Moe hand guards and they allow for you to add rails to them and magpul is coming out with a flashlight mount and VFG for the Moe Hand guards.

I'm still thinking about adding a drop in rail, either a Daniel Defense or a Troy. I think they both have QD sling points

I do know one thing I plan on getting and that's some bulk ammo and mags
