This is my latest. It’s an Anderson upper and lower, found a pair that was a very tight fit. 18" stainless barrel (FN) rifle length, standard A2. Trued the front of the receiver, cerakote in “stainless” with some hand work done in the roll marks that about killed my eyesite. A “standard” charging handle except in NiB that I stuck a latch on. AIM enhanced NiB carrier and bolt. The wood is from Lucid, had some issues with it when I first got it (AAA grade Walnut) from Brownells but I got in touch with Clem at woodforar.com and he fixed me up quick (handguard was WAY out of spec) and sent on some 1911 grips as well. Great guy, solid company. Pretty sure it’s THE Clem Boyd as in Boyd’s stocks, shot the shit with the guy on the phone for about 20 minutes about all sorts of BS nice guy. What did I forget… old school teardrop battery assist. Looks fantastic, GREAT shooter.
Most interesting part about this build was the challenge of cerakote. Great system, great coating, pain in the effing ass to do. Built a blast cabinet, bought a dented smoker. It’s all in the prep. Eventually got it right and now I have a little side business going. What do you think?
