I was going to build this one as a HB Target Rifle, nut life struck again and now it's just another general purpose fun gun.

I did however want to hunt a bit with it, hogs and maybe deer, and wanted to be able to stabilize 74gr bullets without losing anything with the standard 55gr, so I'm putting a 1:8 barrel in this one.

Went down to my local range/FFL today and picked up the Lower.
It was sold as a blemished, but danged if I can find the blemish, unless maybe it is some hard to notice tool chatter marks in the trigger assembly well.
Whatever, aesthetically it looks freaking great in every aspect.

I brought my S&W M&P15 and mated it's Upper on it to check function.
Ran a 30rd mag over it, consistent solid hits on steel human silhouettes from 200-400 yards, it ran smoothly, no hiccups.
I'm very pleased with that, and look forward to getting the Upper which is due to deliver on Tuesday.

More pics to come.

Have you looked at the .223 Wylde set up ? I just built this one. Mine was a blemish PSA lower as well can't find a thing wrong with it. I have been really pleased with PSA they make great components.

The Upper arrived Tuesday but I've been too busy to do anything.
Today I got off work a little early and took the chance to hit the range real quick and do a 25 yard sight-in before having to run and pick up the family for dinner.
Still need to sight-in properly, but I'll need more than 30 minutes range time.

A couple quick sight adjustments.
