    A Noob's first buy...

    Have a question...I have an upper receiver chambered .223 Wylde and thinking of adding a DOLOS system to it. What calibers can be shot with this receiver? Just the .223/5.56?

    Trigger came in...I have to say, they have a nice little marketing package...

    Okay, got some eye candy today... No marking on offset sights...anyone recognize it? Dueck Defense rapid transition sights (rts) is the best match I can find. But there are no markings on the set...are these like some kind of knock-offs? They seem and feel very well made. Anyone with any experience with them?

    I never had a FID...applied for both at the same time...can't buy my lower receiver without it...LOL!

    My refs said they never got paperwork...isn't that handled by the initial 6week background check? When I spoke to the Detective, he said the paperwork came in clean...no issues what so ever. I feel like I am being held hostage for absolutely no reason.

    Nice...never thought about going in that direction. I have a Nikon SLR and all my lenses are Nikon...real nice stuff. I will deff check them out especially knowing their tech info is readily available. Thanks! I think the SST-15 is a good fit for both the rifle and myself. The rifle is costing me a bit more that I calculated on...but after talking with Jim and knowing the style of shooting I like, I took his advice and went with a higher end build. Since the upper is billet...I chose billet for the bottom. It might not be a match set but at least it will be of the same material...the aluminum for upper and lower both having the same characteristics in the event of a catastrophic failure. So I started concentrating on billet lower info both here and on the net and soon realized that all decent billet lowers ran at around $160. Add quality pins, Ambi Mag and bolt release...remember ODC Southpaw...and I am already well over a couple of c notes. So for another $100 I get a state of the art, tested platform exactly the way I want it. Drop the FCG and ambi safety in and give it a few tweaks...good to go. But I think my township is jerking me...they have had my processed paperwork in their possession going on 4 wks now. I call they tell me this week. Week goes by and no call. Call on Monday, they tell me again, this week. Week goes by, no call. Call yesterday...no answer. Leave message with my phone and no return call today. I don't get it...

    Got some good news today...FedEx is delivering my QA upper tomorrow, LaRue emailed me to let me know my MTB-2S is on it's way and half my Brownell's order is on its way also...Happy man. I also have made up my mind on a lower for this build...going billet instead of forged...most likely San Tan Tactical to finish the build. Now I have to start saving up for a scope!!

    Has anyone had any experience with San Tan Technical? They make a real nice looking lower receiver... https://www.santantactical.com/stt-2794

    Okay...ordered the LaRue. Now looking at lower receivers...are they all the same? Most say Mil spec, but are they really all the same? Is a $50 Anderson just as good as some of the $200 - $300 ones?
