Why can't I get excited about ARs?  Is there something wrong with me?

Thanks.  I just noticed that the OD is really washed out in that pic.  Here is a better pic to actually see what the OD looks like.

Nah.  They aren't everyone's cup of tea.  I get that.  I just like the fact that I can build one over time without dropping a ton of cash at one time and I don't need a ton of gunsmithing tools to do it.  They also don't require any fitting.  Simplicity.

Very nice. Like the 18" barrel, and "traditional" handguard. Your right about the simplicity, and amazing amount of options in a custom build, without dumping a bunch of cash into it, (unless you want to),....

Let us know how it shoots. (with more pics) 8)
Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."
Col. Jeff Cooper.
