    New A2 Carbine

    Yesterday I put together an A2 carbine upper.
    Today I put together an A2 lower.
    All the parts are new made commercial.

    The lower is built on a custom A2 made receiver made by BCP, in FL. (Special Group run)
    The upper receiver has the key hole code.
    The barrel is the GOVT STYLE
    The FSB is not F marked.
    A2 flash hider
    IT has the small forward assist button, but I will dig thru my stuff and find a large FA button to swap it out.
    The full stock is an early 90's A1 with an A2 butt plate made (both are new)
    I don't care for the adjustable stocks and I will probably be shooting this one.

    I like the weight, balance on this one.
    The action is very smooth on it ( it is well lubed).

    Nice as always!

    Full stock for me as well. I don't like the adjustable stocks on them.

    Very nice Ron, I also like full size butt stock. Nice and clean looking

    I dug out a few parts yesterday and Put them together this morning.
    They have A1 stocks on them except the mid-length. it has an A2 stock that will be changed out to an A1 stock later.
    I just put the together for fun 3 carbines and one mid-length.
    I started to do another mid-length with a C7 upper, but I got tired.
    I will do it later tis week.
