I have got two DPMS kits that I picked up from MGS. You can find them there or at CTD or online at Brownells, etc.

I still need 3 more.

That should be doable. Do you have the spanner wrench and other needed tools?

Got plenty of tools and at least one spanner wrench for the buffer tubes. I DO NOT have the special tools for upper assembly though. Maybe someone else can bring those if anyone needs.

I am turning my laptop over to IT tonight and heading to Baghdad. I will get back online when I get settled in there, God I hate the transient center there.

We may need to start another thread for a build party. I do not mind hosting as long as no one shows up thinking they can get trashed and break my stuff. I would hate to have to put two behind the ear.

This GTG doesn't have to involve alcohol. I know I won't be drinking because I have to drive home.

I just ordered two DPMS lower parts kits and two DPMS 6 position buttstock assemblies from Midway USA for $239.

That makes it come to about $139 (two stripped lowers) and $239 for the parts to complete them, so $378 for two complete lowers ($189 each).

That's not bad.

make sure you refinish the sear and hammer. They are garbage on stock DPMS kits.

So I take it these aren't like doing a trigger job or something that easy?

I've always wanted to make my own just so I know how everything works inside, but then I got lazy and bought a Bushmaster

My first one took me 45 minutes to put together my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th took me 15 each. There is nothing like knowing how something works. If you know how it works you can always fix it.

With proper tools, it doesn't take long. I went over to CJ's last night and we assembled the two lowers. CJ showed me how to smooth, debur and polish the trigger surface. The only problem we encountered was the pistol grips were not cleaned out enough for the spring. It was causing the detent to lock up the selector lever. After CJ hogged them out a little with a drill, they work just fine.

I'm going to be replacing those cheap ass pistol grips with these:

The Falcon over the Hogue? I have never felt/held either, but I bought 3 stipped lowers and looking at purchasing everything to finish them next paycheck.

What are your plans for the lowers?

I'll have to remember that for when mine comes in. Just placed and order yesterday and I'm hoping it will be here by next friday.

I'm with you on the grips, I decided to go with the Command Arms interchangeable grip.


Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

That's the grip I had on my first AR. I absolutely loved it. I need to pick one up for the one I have now.

I've bought 5 of the Hogues, and the Falcon looks similar but a little different.

I just thought I'd try something new. (read - they are on sale)

One of the lowers is going to be an AR for my 12 year old, my almost 15 year old has a lefty AR already, and I have several ARs for myself. I really don't have any plans for the left over lower, just gonna keep it for a rainy day.

What's the purpose of the interchangeable grips? I would think it's just more parts to fall off/lose and/or keep up with the other parts you're not using at the time. I'm more of a simplistic person. I find something I like and pretty much stick to it. I know, boring, but I'm old.

Glad you got them built. I ended up at the showing of Restrepo in Dallas last night (awesome).

I still have 2 AR15 lowers and a AR10 lower that I am gonna put together on the 2nd.

I picked up a Magpul bolt assist device (BAD) lever and installed it on my shooter yesterday. Cool feature and the ergonomics fits. Right hand bolt manipulation is the shit.

Grips will all fall on the end user of course but I am out on any CAA stuff going on my weapons.

It's more of a comfort and a couple extra options for a perfect fit. You know me, I'm not a big guy and I have girlie hands so I think out of 3 front straps and 3 back straps I'll have something that'll fit nicely. My small hands is one of the reasons I went with my Walther P99. It came with 3 back straps for a perfect fit.

I've considered several other grips such as the Hogue and Mako, just wanted to give this a shot first since I have girlie hands.

FWIW if the Mako AR-15 grip is anything like the Mako grip that I got for my Mossberg 500... it sucks. Real hard plastic and very uncomfortable. I ordered a Hogue replacement, but it was delivered after I left for Afghanistan. My brother said it feels a million times better, but has never gone shooting with the new grips.

I was afraid of that, they look like hard plastic, just haven't seen one up close.

That's definitely not the answer I was expecting, lol. I expected you to say you'd had one and it fell apart or something like that. Don't get me wrong, Magpul has their shit together and there's numerous Magpul parts going on my build. IMO their MIAD grip didn't feel much different than the stock grip which is why I'll try out the CAA. Hell if that doesn't work out then Hogue it is.

BTW I officially have BRD.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

After CJ hogged them out a little with a drill, they work just fine.

I'm going to be replacing those cheap ass pistol grips with these:

I bought the deluxe version of this grip because it too was on sale it feels great I'm very pleased with the purchase.
