The 80% lower was a beeyotch on a taper chuck drill press but I did it. Pretty ugly inside but it functions great. Still needs some trigger work to lighten it up. Runs M855 fine, but the ejection pattern was odd. Two distinct piles of brass at 2 and 4 o'clock, plus a few at 3. Love the grip and handguard BTW. Highly recommended. I had a lot of fun with this build.

Completed with FDE pmags, extended charging handle latch and Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40. Total weight (empty mag, no bipod) 7lbs 9oz. Compared to Mini-14 at 9lbs 9oz with shorter, lighter barrel and lower capacity mag.

Nice. Mine comes in at 7.8 without the mag.


I love that stock, where did you get it?? Thanks for sharing...


Boyd's. Not sure why but when I post from my phone the picture is always fuzzy. This one should show more detail. Heartbreaker, I hope you don't mind.
