Well, I am assembling all the parts for my lower. Got my 3-pound Timney trigger assembly, Bushnell 4 X 16 X 40 illuminated reticle scope, raised scope mount rail, scope rings, DMPS lower parts kit, Command Arms G-27 Tactical Grip with Inside Grip Storage, DPMS AR-15 Accu-Wedge , Black, ACE Skeleton Buttstock 9.9" , DPMS Multi-Tool AR-15 Steel & the AR assembly book. My lower will be picked up on Monday afternoon. I can see how it would be easy to get hooked by the AR building bug because there are so many options with respect to calibers and goodies.The suckie part is that I won't be seeing my RRA Predator Pursuit upper for about 6-weeks. That will give me plenty of time to assemble the lower and daydream about how well I hope this rig is going to shoot.

It'll only take you 1 hour to assemble your lower.... Then you have 5 weeks, 6 days and 23hours to sit and wait. LOLMy upper better be sitting on my front porch when I get home this afternoon! W00T!!!!

I've been waiting for my Stag upper for three weeks with no specific delivery date known. I called Stag and they said that there was a six working day back order and that my dealer had an order in that would be filled before mine and suggested I just wait for the dealer to receive the upper. I also have the Timney trigger and you will love it. This stuff is getting hard to find and the prices are going up. If anyone is considering a black gun now is the time to do it.

Well I'm glad to hear that about the Timney trigger assembly. I was mulling over several different options and I finally decided on the Timney because I have their triggers in just about every rifle I own. I gulped on the price but I have always regretted the bargain stuff I bought.

Yep, they are SAWEET! Still waiting on Woodog to get his other one, so I can put his extra Timney in my AR. :D I'm currently using JP enterprises yellow springs. They improved the trigger pull quite a bit. I would guess somewhere around 4-5lbs, but a lot of creep. It was originally 8.2 lbs with the factory springs. I guess these springs are not good on military ammo that needs more of a hammer strike, but I just shoot hunting ammo, so no worries.The Timney though, is a clean crisp 3lbs that breaks like glass.

My gunsmith in Riverside works on AR-15/M-16 triggers for the law enforcement and military Special Forces. There is no slop or creep in his triggers and they all break crisply at 3-31/2 lbs. He also builds custom rifles of any caliber if needed. He does all the work by himself so you know who's hands have been on your weapon. He's totally redone my CZ 527 customizing the bolt handle, installed a muzzle brake (hand made), custom target crown and reworked my trigger to break at 2 lbs. PM me if you want his name and phone number.
