I built this rifle for a fellow Infantryman as a end of service gift.

The upper receiver is a Palmetto State Arms carbine length gas system with a FN made cold hammer forged barrel chambered in 5.56 with a 1 in 7 twist rate, Lower receiver is a Surplus Ammo and Arms brand lower (contracted out to Aero Precison) the lower parts kit i used is CMMG.

The Keymod forend is a carbine length model in factory Multicam made by B5 systems, the pistol grip is a Magpul MOE-K model and the stock is just a basic MOE model that had to be custom hyro-dipped by Liquid Gunworks. Rear sight is a MaTech BUIS and is standard issue on military M4s, optic is a Aimpoint Comp M2.

I am sure your colleague has very happy with the gift!

    I hope your friend isn’t moving to California or New York.

      if he’s moving to CA, then all he needs is a $10-15, easily-installed bullet button.

        Go to New Jersey, and try to register your guns. You’ll be arrested for a felony. Governor Christie thinks NJ gun laws are just about perfect. Let’s hope he never makes it to the oval office.

          I always snort when they call that idiot a Rebublican.

          The very example of a RINO.

            It would be interesting to see how his US Attorney’s office prosecuted gun law cases. I suspect his office was very aggressive while going after “violators”. In the book, “Molon Labe”, the Krasney Killers, searched out such people and applied extreme prejudice against them. It was also a theme in the book, “Unintended Consequences”, where similar folks found extreme retribution being applied. Maybe if “they” keep up going after good people, such actions may be in the future. It could be avoided by repealing all the silly laws about length, magazine capacity, selective fire and carry. There should be not federal or state laws beyond restricting serious felons and mental defectives. And a vet with PTSD should not be denied rights. Every one suffers PTSD to varying degrees. If not, they have never lived.
