I don't even remember lol. This was my very first AR I built in... 2013? Maybe 2012?

PSA's CHF FN barrelled upper, with the Gadsden lower, and RRA 2 stage match trigger. I knew I wanted wood on it because, well, at the time I owned Mosins, SKSs, and a Garand, so wood EVERYWHERE, and I went searching online and found the set for about $150. It's VERY nice wood, I can't tell what type, but it is sturdy, buttery smooth, and the only down side is that it's heavy as hell.

The only thing keeping me from ordering is purchasing both a Ruger Mk IV and a WASR in the past 2 weeks plus accessories for both plus more mags so I'm tapped. Been considering building another AR but struggling to determine what configuration to go with. The next one may be one of these instead of a build...

I've never tried weighing it, but I would guess it weighs half again as much, or maybe even twice as much as an AK set

Going green with this one... M-16 slick side upper JSE 20 inch melonited 1 in 9 pencil barrel... Old crusty M-16 stock and hand guards that I refurbished and painted with Aluma Hyde 2...

Going to have a 80% lower engraved with C.O.B. M-16 licensed by Mattel...

Default Meet Mr. Green

Had to finish it up and test it yesterday... Shot well even in our -10 degree wind chill shitty snowy weather... I'll get a 80% lower off to the engraver in a week or two... Thought this rifle was a good candidate for my Spanish Enosa scope...

Pretty damn close to my iraq A4. You just need to beat the shit out of it and add a surfire light.

How did you get the long term UV exposures caused purple look?

***Edit: I just realized that is a true battleworn rifle. That worn look is sexy.

Awesome...👍🏻👍🏻
My FN m16a4 military collector arrived couple days ago good timing as my acog also arrived the same day. Wanting to leave the rear sight on, noticed I have a goose neck trying to get a good eye relief on acog But I may just follow your set up and remove rear sight and move acog back👍🏻

Talking

We have had no less than a dozen come through the shop in the last month. 20" colts.

Before that, I hadn't seen one in years.

Seems like they're making a comeback.
