First AR build

I have a Noveske Afghan upper, larue tactical 12" rail, Magpul buis, battlecomp muzzle break, and magpul ctr stock. Looking for a solid lower that is in stock, trying to find a noveske gen II but no one has one. This is my first AR build and I know nothing

we have 10 on order (been awhile waiting)

If you haven't liked our Fbook, do that to get updated when they come in.


JFYI word on the street is that the normal GenIIs are being used only for noveske builds and the chainsaws are the only thing they are releasing into the wild as a stripped lower.

I actually found a gen II chainsaw at a local shop (they had a bunch too) if anyone else is interested. Picked mine up tonight and can't find any blemishes. Should have this thing put together in a month or so.


Paid $207 which is cheaper than most places online without the added FFL.

Edit: Sorry they can only sell to colorado residents

Firebretha has one he's put together through research and experimentation. I'll let him explain why it's so good since he did all the work on it.

Cool, anyone here run a RRA parts kit with a two stage trigger? Seems like it gets a lot of good reviews.

I think Rick just really don't like you. Or he's jelly that you get to smoke weed and CCW.

He's probably not awake yet, I'll give him a call in a little bit and ask him what's up.

Nice selection!

My parts showed up the other day, but I've been too busy with my day job to drive over to Firebretha's to build my uppa. I'll show picks of it as well.

Maybe it's not a "weapon"...maybe it's his male enhancement device?

let's bring serious discussion back into this tacti-gay thread

if he is using Thumb-break grip aka "Magpul style" that VG is where it's should be, if he is using "Tommy gun" grip - than, yeah, it's a bit of a stretch, unless he is a ape-man

Except that your rail isn't "carbine length"

Just do whatever works for you and fuck all the haters.

What you put on your AR is your business. If someone doesn't like it or thinks its not "tacticool" enough then screw em. What I do to shut them up is out shoot them to prove them wrong. Keep it the way you want it, and throw up a range report when you shoot it!
