AR-15 Build Update! on Flickr.
Sup sup sup Tumblr! A real AR-15 update for once!! How does it look?! So last post I made, I mentioned everything going on with the AR-15 and here’s a better update!
*Lower COMPLETE:- Duracoated in “Tactical Coyote Brown” and “Goddess Purple”- All Duracoated parts originally black- Spike’s Tactical “Pirate” Lower- Spike’s Tactical Trigger Guard- Palmetto State Armory LPK with KNS Pins & JP “Yellow” Springs- B.A.D. A.S.S. (Ambi Safety Selector)- Magpul B.A.D Lever- Magpul MIAD Grip- Magpul STR Stock

Remember this? So this is how we started.. and here’s how she sits now…
So sexy amiright? haha. As you may have read (if you read any of the text :P) or already seen, there are some parts duracoated in “Goddess Purple” which is close to the shade of purple I had in mind when I decided to do this. Here’s a little close up of the purple details…

Another close-up! This time of the Magpul STR Stock which I have only seen in black. Love the little black accent pieces that I didn’t duracoat because of they are rubber and I figured it wouldn’t stick…

So there you have it! My baby is coming along nicely! As I was doing prep for the AR-15 I decided that since I only have one other gun that they should match! So I went ahead and did the trusty FNP-9 in the same “Tactical Coyote Brown”…

But before I show a closer shot of that I figured I’d put up this classic shot of the FNP. So, you have that before up there, and how she sits now…

And here it is!!! Was trying to get as close to the original shot above :P Almost identical amiright?! Loving the stainless and Coyote Brown combo… not something you see everyday, even in terms of two tone stuff.
So there you have it a full on update finally for my tumblr folks with a buncha pictures!! The duracoat went pretty smoothly, but it kills airbrushes clogging them up. Thank goodness I only go with cheapy Harbor Freight Tools airbrushes. It’s holding up pretty well, but I do have some chipping here and there. It’s most likely because I reassembled the guns to quickly and didn’t give them enough time to cure… They claim it’s okay to reassemble in 24 hours… I shoulda waited a few days like I did before messing with any of the purple pieces. Hopefully they hold up, but only time will tell, and I’ll definitely keep track of that!

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!

-Arrgh! :2012 is the year. The year of the dragon, and the year I build an AR-15 rifle. This is where it starts. My Spike’s Tactical Jolly Roger Stripped Lower. Awesome looking amiright?!
*SO! Wuddup Wuddup Tumblr?! It’s been a while, haha. I gotta stop disappearing on you like this. Anyway! Yeah up there is a picture of my lower and I will be doing my best to document the SLOW build of my first AR-15. Check back from time to time and before you know it a fully built rifle will emerge through these photos.
