Tisha is finally complete! (HUGE POST)

March 11, 2011


So after about 6 months of researching parts, placing online orders, waiting for them to come in, and partial assembly. It is finally over.

She is up and running and shooting like a dream.

Here is a rundown of everything that went into her with links to where I got them (when available) if you feel like building your own.

As soon as the weather gets warm I will be posting a video review of each part as well as the rifle as a whole. I will do my best to be objective as possible.

Also I feel obligated to mention that RedXArms prices scared the crap out of me before I called them up and spoke with Neil (why so cheap?!).

He seems to know what hes doing and the parts I got are top notch. Shipping took longer than expected but after I got them they exceeded my expectations.

Feel free to sound off if you have a specific questions about any of the parts or assembly.
