AR15 lower build

I finally got off my butt and started something I had wanted to do for a long time. I built an AR lower (minus the stock and buffer tube, They are on the way).

This is the bare (striped) lower. It is from Spikes Tactical. I didn't chose the 'Punisher' version, it was the only one they had. I like the 2004 Punisher movie anyway. They should never have let Thomas Jane go.

And the roll pin

I ordered assembly blocks but they didn't quite fit. I had to lightly file the corners.

Then the magazine release.

After this I kind of got into it and stopped taking pictures. There was a lot more, Trigger assembly being the biggest part.

This is the so-far finished product. More to come.

  1. That reminds me that I need to get my lower parts kit ordered so I can get moving on my AR build. Which lower parts kit did you go with?

  2. DPMS, It was the cheapest, in a name I recognized.
