This is my favorite AR15 I own.

It’s a BCM 16″ midlength upper, w/ enhanced lightweight barrel, KMR keymod rail, and BCM comp and Black Rain Ordnance Milled Charging Handle.
The lower is TN Arms, Magpul ACS-L stock, MOE grip and MBUS pro sights, VLTOR A5 Buffer system, and an ALG QMS trigger. Shoots wonderfully and weighs right around 6 lbs as pictured.

The paintjob is a Pewter Duracoat paint job I applied myself with an airbrush. Turned out very nicely.

I am fond of grey(ish) rifle paint jobs myself.

    I really like the look of those 20 round Pmags.

    With hundreds of thousands of different models of firearms made over the years I can't wait to see something unique and interesting as the POTD..........aaaaand it's another AR.
    The percent of AR and AR related posts on this site is a little ridiculous. I get that they are popular and what not but come on. Still enjoy the site, appreciate all the time and effort put in by the authors but could we tone down the AR a little?
