    I fell down another rabbit hole.

    A friend gave me a Stag Arms Stainless Heavy Fluted 18" 1:8 5.56 barrel. Mid length.

    I stared at it in my ballistic laboratory for weeks, perhaps months.

    Then I ordered a 17" M-Lok 1" diameter rail, a low profile gas block, a gas tube, and a billet slick side upper. $143.05

    PSA had MagPul lower kits on sale for $89.99.

    Next week I'll order a bolt control group $89, charging handle 13, and thread protector $8.

    That'll give me a complete rifle for around $350.

    I'll still need sights and perhaps an optic.

    Oh, It'll be built on one of my many Anderson lowers.

    I was thinking of splurging on this item, and getting this one.

    Problem with 400 dollar builds is, most people have a few rifles already. So you build the gun, after optic and accessories you are out almost 7-800 bucks or more, and you WON'T shoot it, b/c you have your nicer rifles in the safe and want to shoot them.

    Yea, . . . My problem is that I don't shoot rifles much at all. I'm a pistol guy. Still, I get drawn to these projects like a moth to a flame.

    Just an update.

    I contacted Poor Man's Black Rifle about the lack of a tracking number. They apologized and explained that in the rush to ship within two days, it fell through the cracks. They then gave me a $10 credit towards my next order. Good Customer service, so far. Still no product to evaluate.

    PSA still has not shipped my product. No customer service, but you get what you pay for.

    Still waiting on my order from PMBR. Without a tracking # I've no idea when it'll arrive.

    My order from PSA, placed on the eighth, is still being processed. This makes six days and counting.

    Nothing to put together. Nothing to take pictures of. Nothing.
