    556 shorty (GMWILLY)

    yeah yeah... im constantly trying to get away from AR's.... not gonna do anymore... selling them all...

    & Gary will always hook me right back in on another one. SO........ snagged this little dragon upper from him last week & it showed up today.

    took me about 4 mins to get his always fabulous tape job undone & then 30 seconds to throw it on my forged lower with the TAC CON trigger & SIG brace.

    heres what ya get on a old towel in my barn:

    note to those who GAF== when you hold this up near your shoulder(not touching)& do a TAC CON run with it... expect to get powder burn.

    yeah its a forged lower we did & i liked the swirly's in it as a finish, its spot on numbers wise, but shows that it was a forged & machined out vs cast 80%.... just something a little different than the old basic evil blackrifle.

    Yeah, that lower looks good as is. Does it have a clear coat on it of some kind or just natural?
