Shortly after getting back from GBR and while still in a weakened dtate, a friend of mine sent me a note about a "daily deal" from Palmetto State Armory on a Bag-O-AR-Parts, just add lower receiver. Since I had won a lower at GBRIX , and it had been looking lonely, I bit. After all it was a $570 bag on sale for $400. It took me about 2 hours to assemble the parts which involved watching a bit of a how-to video then going downstairs to install the 2 or 3 parts, then back up to the 'puter for the next 2 minutes. Here's the result:
A big help here was that the upper receiver came pre-assembled. The Mag-Pul furniture is not actually gray, but a uniform black. I topped it with a 4X scout scope I had lying about in need of a home although that may well become a red dot at some point. I don't know.
Same day I finished this I got a call from the Arapahoe County Sheriff to come pick up my card. Elapsed time: 61 days. Could have been better, could have been worse. I'm not complaining, just observing.
With the above 2, the gun snobs can now quit sneering at my Hi Point and come read my blog. Now with fewer cooties.
The topper was getting back from the Sheriff's office and finding a jury summons in the mail. Man, those guys don't waste any time at all now do they.
