I won’t post every item like last time but it has alot of the same guts as a previous build of mine. Some of the parts came from RedXArms.com. The more I do business with Neil, the more I like his website. The products are proving to be of outstanding quality. My only complaint is I dont like waiting for things to come in the mail. Cant have everything I guess.

PICS!!!

All in all it shoots like a dream ( 460 rounds and NO MALFUNCTIONS). Also I am really loving the FailZero bolt carrier group and trigger. I have yet to lubricate it and its still kickin.

Also I feel that I should tell you guys that I am employed for an online retailer of gun accessories and that I am in no way being compensated for this blog. I do this because I want to share with you guys the things that I think are worth sharing in the firearms industry. ( As an employee, I do get a pretty good discount on parts though :D)

With that in mind if you are interested in any of the parts you’ve seen in my posts you can probably find them at:

www.AR15Outfitters.com

or

www.OutdoorBunker.com

Also, if you call in and ask a gun related question, chances are I’m answering it. Did I tell you I love my job? Because I do. ūüėČ

Heather and the Marlin Model 60

Heather and the Marlin Model 60

So I’ve wanted my GF to come shoot with me for as long as I’ve known her and¬†yesterday¬†she finally came.

The video shows her shooting my Charles Daly 1911 in .45 ACP. As you can tell she is a very inexperianced shooter but I think she did pretty well.

All together she shot 2 very different Marlin Model 60s, “Tisha” my AR15, and the 1911.

I’m looking forward to much more shooting with my GF this summer.

EDIT:

In case your wondering the AR15 you see in the background is Tisha. I have finally gotten around to completely break in the barrel and will be sighting in the next time I go shooting.

I have gathered enough data to do an actual review of the handguard, the stock and the bipod. Look for it in the next couple weeks. Followed soon after by a review of the barrel, scope, and green dot sight

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.

So for the last six months or so I have been assembling an AR-15 from parts. What it would end up looking like existed only in my imagination.¬†Until last Friday that is…

With the new ATI free-floating hanguard installed, the only thing left is the bolt carrier group. I’m at a crossraods between a chrome-plated or nitrided BCG.

Believe me you will be seeing much more of “Tisha” in the future.
