So about two days ago I met with the owner of the gun shop that promised me my AR. He apologized for the delay, apparently there was some .... unpleasantnesses ... with his former partner and he was not aware that I had not been paid in full. He made good on the promise and provided me the upper that I was looking for
I now own an AR-15. I am going to go test it out tomorrow.
I've already had a trained gunsmith stake the castle nut for me.
