    I just put on the CTR stock and my Pmags finally arrived. My FDE P mags are on the way.

    Very cool, but bad timing... I'm starting to get the AR itch and your pictures are a bad influence. :p Good job!

    Well, when most people have an itch they tend to scratch it, so you might want to do the same thing. I've owned a bunch of ARs in the past and can say they are my favorite rifle platform. I love my DPMS LR 308 to death and I upgraded some items on that rifle this evening as well. I added a Magpul MIAD grip because the Royal Arms grip I had one the rifle was only suited for RH shooters. I also did a trigger job by replacing the factory heavy trigger with the JP spring kit. It has brought the trigger pull down to around 4.5 lbs and was under $10 to purchase.

    Quite a fashion statement in a gunny sort of way.

    that's a really good looking rifle.

    a dpms flattop in .308 is in my future. but it's a distant future!!

    glad to hear you like yours. i was gonna go lurk on the ar board when the time came, but nice to get some feedback right of the bat.

    I actually owned two DPMS LR rifles. I sold the unfired 24" SS because the 18" rifle did everything that I needed. I am planning on refinishing the Badger handguard in OD today, then I will post some pictures.

    Aubie, how do you like the Magpull stock compared to a standard, noisy calapable one?

    There is no comparison between the CTR over the 6 position. The CTR stock has no side to side movment at all. The 6 position is loose and is not nearly as sturdy as the CTR. I bought the CTR kit which included the mil spec buffer tube as well. Make sure you find out if your current buffer tube is mil spec or not because Magpul also offers the commercial CTR stock.
