    I honestly just enjoy building AR's. I much prefer to shoot pistols.

    I've got an Aero CH on my rifle, but of all the CH I've pulled.....I could never really tell a difference(other than being ambi). I'm sure the more expensive ones are better.....but I just don't have a use for them to be completely honest.

    The only reason I want an Aero Breach is b/c...........Aero :rofl: :rofl:

    Bought a new free float tube, get everything apart, go to tighten the new barrel nut and of course I have no tools that fit it. I needed a 1 1/8” crows foot, off to the tool store tomorrow.

    I don't have one but I'm debating if I want to try the redi-catch. It uses the mag release to activate the bolt catch latch. I don't really like anything else inside the trigger guard beside the trigger and my finger.

    Yes, and also a 1-1/8” open end, but nothing that will work with the torque wrench.

    Lol, I'm one of those delinquents that doesn't always use a torque wrench on barrel nuts if I can't.

    Finally broke down and picked up a P/W 14.5 M4 Carbine upper from Bravo Company to complete this build - bought an M4A1 lower from PSA and had it sitting in my safe for almost 2 years. I used a ambi safety I had on hand - have a Colt on order. Haven't had a chance to run any rounds through it yet. I also need to decide if I want to put any optics on it or just keep it as is.

    If you've done enough of them you probably have a good idea where it should land on tightness. Some instructions for some handguards have like a 40 ft/lb window to work with in their specs.

    My father-in-law has a 1-1/8” crowfoot, I’ll swing by there and tighten it.

    Nice man! I would keep that as is, nothing beat simplicity.

    I couldn't help it. I went ahead and bought 2 safeties, 2 PWA ratcheting castle nuts, CMC trigger, and the Faxon 8.5" barrel. The Faxon 9mm BCG wasn't available today when I got to work, so I lost that deal.
