Dude. That would be awesome. Thank you!
I actually did finish building my AR. I decided that I wanted to do a straight A2 build, but with a 16" barrel. The hand-guards and sight radius are rifle length but it has a carbine length gas tube so the dwell time is long enough to not cause problems with the extraction. Standard iron sights, standard everything. I went budget with this one, and got the kit from Model 1 sales back in April, I think. I'm sure some of the parts are Chinese, which of course makes me entirely un-American, but the boys at arfcom wouldn't like that it isn't brand name anyway. So, whatever. It was fun to build and within budget. I'd rather spend the money learning to shoot the thing.
I finally took it to a range Saturday morning. Turns out the thing works as described! I fired 100 rounds through it without any problems. The place I went to only had a 50 and 100 yd range, so sighting it in was a bit tedious. As far as sighting it in, it took me awhile to get the feel of it, get something on paper, and get comfortable enough that I was consistently grouping before I started making adjustments. I never got it zeroed, but pretty close. I'm going to have to go back out (damn!) and work on it.
