Hi guys after selling my bushy i decided to build a new AR , this time i opted for a flat top. I bought all the upper parts and placed a complete lower dpms on layaway. The upper will be a Rock River Arms flat top receiver, my barrel is a wilson BBL 20" and the rest is just parts that my dealer help me picked out mostly regular ar parts, I just probably get a regular handguard on this build bec the ones with the rails are pricey..here are some pics..

Yah i'm still waiting for that delta ring:mad::mad:my dealer ordered it already so it should show up next week..But the good news he was able to find an old handguard i think its from an M16, it only cost me $10 and i like the way it looks now:D:DI am just surprise how easy it is build an upper, as long as you have the parts they are just like a 1911, here is the updated pics..

I see your going retro. Shoulda went with the A2 upper though in that case.

So far so good.

Looks good. I am just getting into ar building and taking a break from the ak kits. I just have a hard time buying tools to build another gun since I could build all of the ones for my ak and ar's are much much more expensive than an ak. I could build 4-5 ak's for the price of one ar.

It should be way easier than a 1911. You have to fit/file a 1911 to make it work safely. Torquing to spec and a bit of headspacing is all you should have to do to an AR.

Nice work so far - be sure to take some finished photos.
