LPK stuff from Right to Bear

Killing me. A1 is ok but if I can "taylor-fit" the "entry" with a 1"/1.5"/2" extender, that'd be my choice. If online info is accurate, the extenders would lengthen the entry stock to 8.5" / 9" / 9.5". It's the 9" and 9.5" length that I'm not locked in with yet. Pretty sure the 8.5" ain't gonna cut it.

 

 I keep going back to one of my 6-position collapsibles w/ a tape measure, shouldering, etc. Just ain't got it right in my mind yet. At this point, I just want to "call it", go with the A1 and march on. I'm trying to just chill and see if it "comes" to me. Groovy baby. :snicker:

Getting there. Lower completed and mated to upper less barrel assembly. Installed my "other" Geissele SSA-E trigger assembly. Still can't get over the weird look of the upper.
