    In other news, I got the Midwest Industries flip sights on my wife's rifle. The long sight radius produces a beautiful sight picture through the ghost ring! The hole size is between your typical small and large apertures. Low profile and solid!

    The first AR I ever purchased, with some recently acquired entertainment slung under.

    And my newest build I completed this past week, just waiting on the optic.

    She's a .458 and I can't load these fast enough...

    Apparently we make parts for other brands as well. This job is giving me hope for the world. We're so busy we're making 700 handguards a day and they're buying more machines because apparently that's not enough to meet demand. Now if they'd only get into making ammo...

    It’s my favorite AR out of the ones I own! The MBT and super 42 spring/ buffer make it a sweet shooting gun!

    And what are the chances of this happening? On the first shot at that! Was testing out my new super 42 spring/buffer. It ate everything I fed it, from brass to steel, 55 gr up to 77gr.

    A whole lotta parts that are not on the truck.
    I love the super 42. It’s way more cost effective than other buffer solutions. I just bought another one to replace the no-name spring I had in one of my old ARs.

    @JimBeam I placed my order for the Ultimate Upper this weekend! I went with the 18” stealth barrel build. I completed my Larue lower build this weekend as well, so I am now highly anticipating for my UU to come in!

    I talked to Taylor and she said that it would take anywhere between a week and 6 months to get it. Quite a wait time, so I’ll just go ahead and expect a 6 month wait for it. If it shows up sooner, then all the better!

    I’ve got a few of those I dug out of the berm when I was stationed at Schofield Barracks.
