    Lower specs:
    BAD GEN 1 forged lower
    BAD Ti pin set
    V7 Bolt catch
    V7 Mag catch
    Geissele SSA
    BAD Short throw selector
    ERGO Grip
    V7 Receiver extension, castle nut and end plate
    H2 buffer
    Blue Sprinco spring
    MFT Minimalist stock

    Upper specs:
    BCM 11.5 in. ELW barrel
    BCM Upper receiver
    V7 Titanium gas block
    BRT 0.060 Gas port insert
    Griffin Armament minimalist Ti brake
    LMT Enhanced carrier
    Sionics NP3 bolt
    BCM Ambi charging handle
    MI Gen3 Lightweight Mlok handguard

    That looks like you done good. And the fact that your wife goes shooting with you is way big bonus points.

    I pull “hers” out of the Safe occasionally to shoot and she rolls her eyes and says “You didn’t ask if you could use my rifle”.




    I think she’s on to me

    Most of the shooting the wife and I do together is recreational suppressed rimfire. We've got two rimfire cans, M&P 15-22 and CMMG rifles, and Ruger pistols. It wasn't until I put a Lantac brake on my AR did the wife say she'd like her own. She said she didn't like the weight and large quad rail on my rifle. With that in mind... a light weight rifle with slim handguard were priorities.

    Palmetto upper. Midlength stainless pencil barrel and slim light weight 13.5in handguard. I already had a BCG but the wife wanted a 'shiny' one to match the stainless barrel... yeah I know... so I chose a Palmetto premium NiB. I was thinking about just using the CMMG lower for it but decided to get a complete Palmetto blem lower. LaRue MBT. You guys here at WEVO had earlier posted about a deal at Cabela's on a Trijicon RMR01 including AR riser so I already had that in the AR parts box waiting for a host. The one mistake I made was assuming the wife would want a stainless brake so I purchased Epsilon VG6. Oh no... the wife wouldn't have it -- Why didn't I get a Lantac like you have!?! Women... sigh... AR parts box + 1 VG6. Complete rifle 6lbs on the button with Lantac brake.

    She's been using it at the club's plinking range bouncing around soda cans and shooting steel at 50-100yds. So far she's gone through maybe 500rds of M193. The Lantac brake keeps the rifle remarkably calm in her hands. The RMR is always on with nothing to fiddle with. The rifle has operated flawlessly with an ejection pattern 3-3:30. For a low volume recreational shooter it turned out quite well. Wife likes her rifle.

    Nicely done. It can be hard to please the OIC, but compliance has its benefits.
    There's no "Team" in F**K YOU!
