Nice! Have you looked into the 223 wylde?


#6

I have been reading about it, definitely an option. Here is my lower i just finished


#7

I like what you did with that lower. What did you use?


#8

I used testors enamel model paint. I went with a flat copper color and painted over the roll marks and used non-acetone nail polish remover to clean up. Picked it up from you tube on how to make your ar15 more yours and stand out from the rest i suppose.
