    I changed out the handguard, stock and muzzlebrake.¬† I bought it with a Midwest Industries handguard but after a very short time I decided I didn’t liek it.¬† It felt to small.¬† I changed it to a Yankee Hill Diamond Series Handguard (ridle length, $120.).¬† It had a standard flash hider on it.¬† I changed that to a Ranier Arms Muzzlebrake ($50.)¬†that works GREAT ! !¬† Hardly any muzzle flip.¬† And a Magpul ACS-L Stock ($79.).¬† Also switched the trigger guard with a Magpul and an Ergo Magwell grip.¬† The fisrt pic (top left) shows the ACS-L stock.

    I bought the one above but I also built one (5.56) with a 20 inch barrel. ¬†I built the below AR over a 2 year period and just bought a piece here and there (before the AR epidemic). ¬†I only have about $380. in the basic gun. ¬†I did upgrade the stock after a little while and the scope, bi-pod and grips. ¬†The only other thing I will probably do is change the hand guard to a free float. ¬†I got the barrel for nothing so I went cheap at first. ¬†Both my AR’s are built on Palmetto State Armory (PSA) lower receivers. ¬†I have two more lowers (one I put the lower parts kit in and the other is still striped).

    The 16 inch (Stainless barrel) is chambered in .223 Wylde with 1:8 twist.

    The 20 inch (with bi pod) is a standard military barrel chambered in 5.56 NATO with 1:7 twist.

    How are you liking the ACS-L?¬† I’ve got one here on the pile but haven’t tried it yet…

    I love it ! ! ¬† It is solid for an adjustable stock. ¬†It locks in great at any position. ¬†Is light and has a compartment for batteries for my EOTech. ¬†I had a standard stock but it had a little movement in it that wouldn’t stop (they all do). ¬†It’s noticeable. ¬†For the money ($79) I couldn’t go wrong.

    I have an Ergo F93 8 position stock on my 20 inch AR and it works great for that gun as it levels out the front weight.  And the 20 inch is usually benched or on the ground (bi pod).  I think the Ergo is to heavy for a carry AR.  But the Ergo F93 is GREAT !

    Very nice.¬
    Is that SS pipe a match series from Ranier as well?  Ive been looking at staritng my next build with one (middy) but now Ive found one 1:7 from a different brand that I think Ill try instead.  I hear nothing but good things about the Ranier barrels.  I also like the Ranier shorty comp/break but it does give off a heck of a flame.
    I had planned on starting the build by now but funds have been tight.  Think Ill do the upper complete first and keep the lower stripped for a while.  I can always run the upper on my existing complete guns as a test drive.

    The barrel is not Raniers Arms.¬† I think it’s an FN barrel.¬† I bought¬†the¬†whole gun from PSA and FN makes there barrels so….¬† I’m not at home to check.¬† The Ranier Arms Muzzle Break¬†does throw a flame with some types of¬†ammo…. but still love it.¬† I hear ya on the funds.¬† I have a complete PSA lower I put together but no money to start the upper.¬† I also have another stripped lower (PSA) but no money to do anything with it.¬† I’ve been putting money into reloading and hunting (archery).
