Please keep the politics for another thread, this one's for gun lovers. Ended up buying the upper and building the lower from scratch. I still need to accessorize: sight/scope/laser, front grip, etc. I'm open to suggestions. Here's what I ended up with:
-Smith and Wesson M&P 15T Upper
-Scorpion stripped lower (only ones still made in Texas from what I heard)
-Magpul UBR adjustable stock
-Magpul MIAD adjustable rear grip
-Magpul trigger guard
-Geissele SSA-E trigger
-JP Enterprises Silent Captured Spring
I had a lot of fun building it
Shout out to choog and 0311 for their advice

Good hog killer right there.
Solid built right there. I attempted to build a rifle but got lazy.
To bad it will be illegal soon
Nice work. Looks good Sherm. Was the pivot pin installation a pain in the ass?
Where did u get your upper, I have a night vision setup and want an upper i can change out for daytime fun?
I have the Magpul ACS stock on my AR and i love it. I almost went with the UBR the only thing that stopped me was the difference in cost
Actually no, it was really, really easy. It just slid right in. This is the guide I used; it said the pivot pin would be hard too. I had the most trouble with the detent pins, just trying to make sure I hammered them in without scratching anything
I ordered it from grabagun.com back in December
I love the Magpul stuff. I'll probably get a Magpul fore grip too. I'm debating between angled and vertical, but I'm leaning towards angled because I've heard it feels more natural. I'll probably save up for awhile and get something nice for the optics like eotech. Anyone have any advice on accessories?
From IH-35 to IH-10... what then?
I think you did a great job covering the accessories. Optics would be the next item and maybe a sure fire light if you are looking to get a light.
Ignore the DB above.
You're stupid, Gary.
Point taken. I'll do you a favor and use my 44 mag on you if I ever have to. You're welcome
Clearly ignorant about guns. Probably thinks that gun is too powerful.
My favorite is when people call ARs "machine guns".
Guns are fucking cool, that's why.
looks like the liberal pansy Austinites are rubbing off on ol' Gary.....ignorance is bliss Gary, ignorance is bliss
Gary, why do you need the car/truck you drive? Maybe I think you have too many square feet. Or better yet, you talk too much and say too much stupid shit. Who gets to decide what I need?
It looks great man! Nice job. Grips are personal preference but I use a vertical one over here and it works just fine. I believe Larue still creates their lowers in Texas but I could be wrong.
I was wrong, Larue is no longer making lowers.
Thanks Gary Rizz for asking your question. Americans have the right to bear arms and use lethal force in situations that vary by state (usually self-defense). The AR-15 is a proven firearm with a nice combination of accuracy, firepower, weight, durability, and readily available ammo (sort of). Having never owned a gun before 2013, I chose a LaRue 5.56 PredatOBR in the 14.5 barrel length for its superior accuracy and the company's service.
In case you haven't been paying attention, our Congress just contravened the 5th Amendment's right to due process via passage of the New Defense Authorization Act. This fact is not even contested along partisan lines. Slightly more arguable is whether the Patriot Act (and its TSA bastard child) contravenes the 4th Amendment protection from unlawful search and seizure. Add proposed legislation at the state level (Washington proposing to allow the local sheriff to inspect a gun owners home annually w/o warrant; New York State proposing gun owners carry a $1MM liability policy on their gun, with a $1600-2000 annual premium) and you have evidence for an unprecedented assault on America's Constitutional foundation.
Separately, US non-military domestic government agencies are in process of acquiring a MASSIVE amount of ammunition (and battle rifles). We're talking about >1.6 BILLION rounds to the Department of Homeland Security. Obama has declared he wants to create a non-military defense force equal in size to our US military (perhaps employing folks who swore an oath to the Constitution would not be appropriate). Why these agencies, including the Social Security Administration are buying so much guns'n'ammo now raises interesting questions.
Separately, our government is printing $80 billion dollars of fiat currency every month, which comes within 20% of covering the annual fiscal deficits the US has been running for each of the past 4 years. This is unsustainable, and at some future point, hyperinflation will occur without increasing US fiscal responsibility. The related instability, to which foreign currency wars will likely contribute, could prove difficult to control.
I wish to be prepared for when the SHTF. Right behind a water purifier, the means to create fire, and food, I want appropriate weapons. My research suggests an HK .45 pistol and an AR-15 represent good tools for contact out to 400 meters. That is not the time you want to be relying on the government or law enforcement to provide your family with security. Frankly, that has NEVER been their job. In some scenarios, agents of Federal and State government might even seek to confiscate weapons or herd citizens off to camps in the name of safety. To quote some Cypress Hill lyrics, "I ain't goin' out like that."
One last point bears noting. Senator Rand Paul pointed out in sessions on the NDAA that laws are currently on the books identifying traits of US-citizen 'terrorist suspects'. The list of these traits includes possessing firearms, plus food in the home sufficient to last more than 1 week. What is our government trying to do???
Nice post CK!
Unfortunately goons like Gary are either too illiterate to read all of what you read and/or lack the ability to discern the meaning of why we have a federal constitution.

Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
