    Leupold are really nice too so that scope sounds like a game changer.

    That's just the picture I was able to snag... we're making 700+ handguards a day, 6-700 lowers, and various other parts on machines I haven't run yet. We got robots making buffer tubes 24-7. And I can't even buy anything for myself for another 9 weeks. 5 finger discount on the other hand... Too many cameras.

    That's just a Sharps Bros aluminum and wood pistol grip I stripped the anno off of. I'm working on a different set of scales at the moment.

    I can tell you the company I work for is http://jlbillet.com/ I'm not supposed to tell you about the other brands we make parts for, like the one named after a venomous snake.


    I'm not really sure on the sales end other than the website. At 90 days I get a 30% discount, and I do know they have a shelf or 2 full of blems that employees are allowed to buy. I've spied a few unannodized lowers in there. Depending on the price I might build a few 15's and 10's.

    Well that's pretty sweet - live it up! Sounds like a good gig, but I'd end up with a safe full of ARs...

    I plan to build at least 2. But then again I don't have a kitchen gun, or a living room gun, or a shower gun...

    Well, I'm a believer of Trijicon scopes now. The center dot is so fine, that I can line it up in the bullseye @100 yards and still see orange around it. Makes for some really precise shot placement. The irons are zero'd with xm193 and the scope is zero'd to Hornaday 75gr BTHP match. The BTHPs are zero'd @50 yards and hit about an inch high @100 and dead on again @200. I'm extremely pleased with my setups!
