SPR Build

I built this on a tight budget, but it came out extremely nice. I will be upgrading things when I have the extra cash. Here is what's inside:

Upper Receiver - RGuns Keyhole Forge
Barrel - DPMS 18" SPR Barrel 1-8 SS with melonite coating.
Old YHM Compensator
MI Gen II SS Rail and Micro Gas Block
Gas Tube - Armalite Coated gas tube.
LaRue Bi-Pod mount
Harris Bi-Pod
Millett TRS-1 Scope 4-16X50
El Cheapo PA Mount

Lower Receiver - DSA
RGuns SS LPK
Magpul PRS
Magpul Trigger guard
Hogue Pistol Grip
KNS Pins

I dig it. Is it really long, or are those just the pictures? It looks like its all barrel.

Thanks! The rail system is 15" on a 18" barrel, so it will look long compared to a shorter rail system.

I'm curious how those RGUNs parts are going to hold up for you in the long run.

Please keep us informed on the reliability!

If or when you want a better Bipod, FireSpeed.com can get you an Atlas Bipod. Expensive, but will outlive you and is rock solid.

Eric,

The Upper isn't made by them I'm fairly certain. The LPK I have already tested in another rifle for over 2 years now, and no issues. I am interested in the Atlas, PM me some info?
