MCA/ Mike came over today once he got his parts back from Cerakoting at Blown Deadline. The camo is a tribute to his pops who was a VC slaying, body stacking, ear slicing SEAL in the 'Nam.

I have a TON more pics of the build, start to finish that I'll get on tonight but here's a teaser. And hopefully Mike can chime in with all the specs. I don't want to steal his thunder

I would be remiss if I didn't thank the owner of Weapons Evolution for the giveaway I won. The package included the RA Ultramatch upper/lower, the CMT Rail, a cerakote job of my choosing from Blowndeadline Custom, and about $200 worth of M-Lok rail accessories from North Carolinas very own Arisaka. Will, the owner of Arisaka, is one hell of a nice guy and I urge you to look him up for any type of accessories you may need.

Barrel: Rainier Arms UltraMatch .223 Wylde SDM 18 barrel (rifle length gas)

Gas Tube: Rainier Arms SS Rifle Length

Some progress. At this point, the lower is done and we are working on the barrel, gasblock, and brake for the Griffin Recce 5. The lower had some really neat features but some I'd never seen so I had to think on my feet and find some tiny ass Allen wrenches. I put a small 1/2" long stripe in the cerakote on the barrel because the adjustable gas block was SO snug, despite being lubed like mad

CMT UPHR 15" rail is in place over the 18" Rainier Ultramatch SDM barrel; Shilen blank, 4 groove 1:8 223 Wylde. The CMT barrel nut was .001" more narrow than a milspec one so it took a little oomph to get it over the largest step on the rifle. You can see a Fathom Enhanced BCG in the back

Needless to say I'm stoked beyond words with how this build turned out.

First a huge thank you to my good friend @11B CIB ! I could not have done this without his guidance and input on parts selection to his seriously mad skills in building this. I tried my best to throw money at this build, my first, and I think I accomplished my vision. Everything in this build is brand new from top to bottom, front to back.

Second and once again a huge and very grateful thank you to UWONE and Weapons Evolution for the giveaway I won. I am so appreciative of RA for Ultramatch upper/lower, CMT for the rail, Mike at Blowndeadline Custom for the amazing cerakote job, and of course Will at Arisaka for the M-LOK Finger Stop, Low Profile Bi-Pod Mount, Low Profile Picatinny Rail, and the Offset Picatinny Mount.

One last thank you, again, to Mike at Blowndeadline Custom. The cerakote job took longer to get to than anticipated and rather than cerakote just the upper/lower and rail for free as part of the giveaway Mike completed the ENTIRE project free of charge...everything! It was well worth the wait and what an incredibly awesome gesture on his part.

The specs:

Rail: Cross Machine Tool (CMT) UPHR – 15.0" Mod 1

BCG: Fathom Arms Enhanced

Buffer: Rainier Arms H Buffer

Buffer Tube: Rainier Arms 6 position

Gas Tube: Rainier Arms SS Rifle Length

Gas Block: Seekins .750 Low Profile Adjustable

BUIS: MBUS Pro Front and Rear

Scope: PA 1x-8x ACSS

Scope Mount: Bobro Extended QD

Charging Handle: Griffin SN-ACH

Safety Selector Switch: BAD-ASS Ambi

Harris BRM-S Series Bi-Pod

AND last but not least the Griffin Recce 5 Mod 3 Suppressor

11B CIB and I shot a 20 round mag through it afterwards and it ran flawlessly not to mention the Recce 5 made it quite comfortable shooting without ear pro not that I will be in the habit of doing that. Now to get the BUIS and the scope zeroed and start pouring rounds down this thing.

So, as @11B CIB mentioned, he has all the cool pics so I'm sure they will be up shortly. Let me know what you think. I tried my very best to do the "Battle Kitty" justice!

Cheers and a very Happy 4th to y'all here at WEVO!
