    Gimme dem deets! That's a fine looking rifle. I'm partial to wood furniture on AKs but this is hot. Looks like something Baroness from G.I. Joe would tote.

    The offset works wonders for the hard left leans around barricades. I also find it steadier to use the offset rather than the upright when shooting on the move.

    I actually have wood furniture on it now and a different stock. It's an SVD style hand guard that I stained. The magpul stuff worked, but I see it on everything now.

    Here is mine, palmetto state Glock lower, aero precision slick side upper, bear creek 13.5” stainless Barrel with a kak blast shield pinned to make it legal. Romeo 5 red dot, and ALG ACT TRIGGER. I was having some issues with it going auto I bought the Taccom buffer system and it took care of it.

    It’s a blast to shoot. I have done a few pcc competitions with it.

    Personally I find half of the fun of AR's in the build process. I have several upcoming builds planned, namely an AR-9, an AR-10, an AR-15 pistol, and an AR-15 rifle for the better half.

    I made the financial mistake of stopping by a local manufacturer not too long back. I came home that day with an AR-9 lower/upper receiver, an AR-10 lower, two AR-15 lowers, and an empty bank account.

    This, I suspect, is going to be an interesting build. :transformer:

    My favorite thing about ARs. I like making something my own.

    I would assume steel cases in an AR9 gonna have the same issues as with a 223 which is nothing when shooting a normal amount other than increased build up. I just buy brass anyway though.

    JUST incase you haven't seen this before:

    Thanks! No brace. Too many areas for legal misinterpretation in my state. The foam sleeve is actually good enough for a while before you start to get sore though. I don’t mind it.

    Someone should just make an extended buffer tube.
