    ordered a rifle kit from PSA. just the basic 16" M4 upper with the lpk.

    I picked up a stripped CMMG lower from my local gun store at lunch.
    Now im just waiting on the UPS guy for my PSA gear.

    Ill post pics once everything gets in.

    Will do. All the specs look good and all the reviews Ive read are good as well.

    I wanna get one of their 14.5" uppers too.

    I love the Palmetto LPK's. You cannot get a better kit for less. The trigger on the one I just installed was fantastic.

    Update.

    I just called PSA to check on my order.
    I placed my order on 26 july. the guy said that the batch of 16" barrels they got in had not been factory tested so they sent them all out and had to get them all swapped over to different barrels. Good to know.

    My order is on the UPS pallet that is going out today. I hope that I get this in by friday!

    i've already got a 2nd job

    A couple weeks ago the owner came out in the store while I was there BSing with a couple of the guys that work there and said something about needing to hire another part timer...both the store guys looked at me and i laughed and said no

    i'd end up paying to work there...no way I could make any money being in that store MORE than I am already
