AR-15 Mail Call #1 on Flickr.
Wuddup Tumblr?! Always disappearing on you. It’s all good tho, because we are like best buddies… No matter how long it’s been when we get back together good things be happening! Haha! Anyway time for another photo dump! Late mail call! Like a month late mail call. So for the few that follow me, you know I’m building a AR-15 this year, and in the box we have up there are pieces to help me complete that goal. Shout out to Joe Bob Outfitters! Prepare for a buncha pics of what wonders we have inside!
BUT! Before we get inside the box check out what the folks at Joe Bobs did for me! Hilarious!! Love that they were willing to play along with my random requests.
Speaking of, here’s the random request I made which I feel they handled quite well. Don’t you think?
First things first, they sent along this sweet shirt laid out on top of all my parts. Looks great and fits great! Can’t beat free swag!
What was that? Free swag you say? But wait, there’s more!! Stickerssssssss! Those that know me know I love my decals and stickers. Definitely gonna slap one on the door and save one for the AR-15 case. Okay, okay, the parts! The real reason for this post…
Magpul! Gonna be going with a mid-length gas system with my AR-15, and wanted to go with a simple-ish build for starters. So, what better than Magpul MOE stuff right?
Oh did say Magpul? Well here’s more! Magpul VFG or MFG depending on which way you want call it. This grip will of course be attached to the handguard above it. Feels good from what I can tell, won’t know until everything comes together…. Ohhhh when things come together… *drools*
Magpul! Magpul! MAGPUL! Does it ever end?! Well this one might not go on the rifle right away. I know some don’t like the Magpul BUIS, and I’m having my second thoughts, but whenever optics get mounted this will probably go on with them. Gonna pick up a fixed rear sight to go with the planned A2 front sight post I plan on going with. (Thinkin’ Di-Optic Troy Rear… yeah?)
Okay, the Magpul is done… for now >:D Since I got a Spike’s lower I figured I should have SOME other Spike’s Tactical parts instead of ALLLLLL Magpul. The AR-15 is basically gonna be Spike’s, Magpul, and PSA for those interested. Not much to say about this thing besides it has a pretty cool spider logo on it!
Last but not least, JP Precision Yellow trigger springs. Gonna go with a standard LPK but Joe Bob mentions these so much I HAD to try it out. Lighter pull is always good in my book! Well, there is a limit to that… (under 3 lbs?! D: scares me still) but I won’t be getting to that limit anytime soon.
Well there you have it! Over 10 pictures in one post!! :D A bunch of random parts that I can’t really put together until I get the main organs like the upper and the LPK for the lower. The build is still exciting.. for me at least! I enjoy seeing these parts stacking up waiting to mesh together to make something wonderful… a firearm! LOL! Stay tuned as more mail calls are definitely around the corner! Hopefully it doesn’t take the WHOLE year to get everything up and running. Once again shout out to Joe Bob Outfitter’s (www.JoeBobOutfitters.com) Great people over there and great prices!!
*As always click the pics to head to my flickr, because you know… Sometimes Tumblr doesn’t do them justice! :D Enjoy!
