Default New AR build

Started a lightweight AR build. Got my first parts in today. Aero precision had a limited run of “Vietnam tiger stripe” parts so I bit the bullet. Pretty cool and the Handguard is super light. Total build should be right at 5 lbs if I can add correct.

That's a nice start. What does your parts list look like?

Updated pic. Just need a barrel

The bsf barrels are supposed to be amazing. My buddy who owns a gun store put me on to them and owns some himself. Very light and heat dissipation is great as with any carbon fiber barrel.

It should be here Monday and I’ll let you know how it shoots.
