Fathers Day is rolling around.  My wife asked me what I wanted, I said a new AR.

This is what I have come up with so far

Magpul angled forearm grip
Magpul ms3 sling
Magpul ambidextrous sling attachment point

From the Palmetto State Armory website:

Barrel length 14.7″
Hammer Forged Barrel
Machine Gun Steel
5.56 Nato Chamber
1 in 7″ twist
Double-thick Chrome-lined bore and chamber
Special lighter weight A2 profile
Mid-length gas system
M4 feedramps
Forged upper
T-marks
Full auto bolt carrier
Carpenter 158 Bolt
Optional pinned A2 flash hider
Pin and weld flash hider

Price as configured: $557.90

From the DS Arms website:

Model ZM4 Complete Lower Receiver With Mil-Spec Stock Assembly
Model # ZM4RCAR-A
From what I understand, LMT makes the lower receivers for DS Arms.

Price: $200 with collapsible stock

Magpul

After ordering some Magpul parts for my Bushmaster, I decided to wanted to go with as many Magpul parts as I could.

There has been a recent trend towards flat dark earth, but I want my parts to be OD green.
