New member and new to the AR platform

Glad to have found a builders forum. New to the platform and looking forward to gaining some knowledge along the way of my 1st build.

Nice! Have you looked into the 223 wylde?

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


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

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.
