"Alright, here is my first review of my newest build. It isn't my first build, but it is my newest build. It's a 7.5" short barrel and it is registered and legal. I did all the tax stamp and all that stuff, so it is completely legal and it is unloaded and safe right now.

I am going to start with the lower. I started with a Tactical Innovations T15 BDX Billet Deluxe Lower. It is a complete billet lower and it is actually one of the nicest lowers I have seen. I put a Spike's Tactical Mil-Spec Buffer Tube and a Noveske Quick Disconnect End Plate. It has KNS Anti-Rotation Pins, ambidextrous safety, a Magpul CTR stock, I run Magpul P mags in all my ARs, and It's got a Magpul Miad Grip. It has Magpul Pop ups front and rear, and the upper is an Adams Arms 7.4 Tactical Elite Upper. It's a piston upper so with just a turn the piston comes out in two pieces. Easy to clean! I have Troy Industries' Rail Cover, a Troy Industries Vertical Grip, and now I will show you some of the insides of it. Oh and I run a VTAC Padded Sling as I do on all my rifles.

Let me go inside and show you what all is in there. Alright, inside I have put a complete LWRCI Lower Parts Kit. It has got the Spikes Tactical ST2 Tungston Buffer. Of course it has all the Adams Arms upper: bolt, bolt carrier. The bolt carrier actually has skis on the bottom of it to help with carrier tilt. I have about 300 rounds through this AR so far and not even a scuff on the buffer tube or any of the threads so it works.

Like I said it is completely done except I am going to put a Trijicon RX30 with throw arms on it and other than that it is done. Like I said I have about 300 rounds through it and it has run flawlessly. That's about all let me know what you think."
