    While the AK will likely forever be my go-to, I have had a long relationship with Stoner's platform. My first was a Colt Sporter Lightweight that I bought for about $700 back in '95 or '96. It was a hard pill to swallow since you could pick up AK's with machined receivers all day long for around $250. I think I sold it for almost double that in '99. A few years later, I found myself with a Bushmaster XM15 that I sold in 2004. I was AR-less until I decided to try my hand at building, so I picked up a couple of RRA stripped lowers leading into the 2008 election cycle, which probably caused those frankenbuilds to set me back more than I could pay today for a DDM4 off the rack. I've done a few more builds since prices have settled back down (comparatively), but those have all been on Spike's lowers.

    Yeah, but I'm not using ACOGs anymore. I prefer having the option to switch to BUIS without having to dismount the optic (even with a QD). My magnifier is in a swivel mount.

    Yes. Pretty common across the board. A lot of glock barrels are made by one company in Korea. Noveske uses someone else’s extrusions (I’ve seen them sold elsewhere).

    All of my lowers are poverty ponies. Never had issues yet. For the most part a milspec lower is a milspec lower. Unless you want a different roll mark choose the cheapest one with the best warranty.

    You started your first builds around the same time I did! But I likely wasn’t even a twinkle in my dads eye when you got your Colt Sporter.

    I think trigger pull weight is important but the number isn't.
    I know if I want a trigger lighter or heavier but don't care what the number is.
    That said, if you know that the trigger you like is "x"lbs, then you go shopping for a trigger that is "x"lbs.
    Seems like a trigger scale would be an excellent thing for your buddy to own :D

    I use an old digital fish scale. It is within 1 ounce of a real trigger scale.
    And I can weigh fish with it too. :thumbsup:

    I love it

    Bit when you have a FTF, does it seem fishy?
