Default Aero Precision Air Force builder set

I've been getting tired of the "usual" black AR15, and while there are plenty of extremely nice ones out there I just didn't want to put another one together. So when I saw the Aero Precision Air Force set that was released for Veterans Day I decided to jump on it. This is almost as far as I could get from another "black rifle"!

I know there will be plenty of people that don't like the looks, but for me this thing turned out great!

-Aero Precision builder set
-Ballistic Advantage Hansen 16" barrel
-Sharps BCG
-SJC Titan compensator
-HiperFire 24-3G trigger
-Strike Industries "latch-less" charging handle
-Tyrand CNC LWC grip
-Strike Industries buffer tube
-Strike Industries enhanced castle-nut and end-plate
-JP buffer spring

I've never so much as been to the websight and these people just about wear out my email everyday. I won't buy anything from them just cause they piss me off with nonsense emails.

Nice rifle by the way. lets see a target.

Nice rifle.
I'm sick of black rifles myself, so yeah I'm keeping an eye out for cool builder sets as well.

I had hoped the military service "Builder sets" would have been more graphic.
The Navy one just sucks, so I didn't buy it.

I bought the AR10 M5E1 Parchment Builder set instead for a 6.5 Creedmoor build.

For what they charge, you can pay for a custom job yourself.....but some are cool.

I think it looks pretty cool.
They should have left off the oil/ grease streaks though. I thought those were scratches at first.

I was about to ask about those. So, that's intentional?

These we're really cool sets. I would have bought one if they came with the new M4E1 lower.
