    Very nice, there is something I find relaxing standing at the bench in the basement with my adult "Tinker Toys".
    I just finished my 1st LR308 recently, but have not had the chance to go break in the barrel yet. lr308.jpg

    Thank you,
    It is a budget build with an Alex-pro (APF) Upper and Lower. I have an 18" 416 Stainless barrel (1/10 twist) standard bolt carrier group, CMMG lower parts kit, and a Rock River National Match trigger. DPMS mil spec buffer tube, spring and buffer with a Magpul MOE stock. I topped it off with a Nikon P308 (4x12) scope and rings.

    You are too late. Thunder Tactical had a 30% off sale that ended last night on all their kit guns. The gun kit listed for $554.99 & with 30% off brought it down to $388.49.
    https://thundertactical.com/collect...ower-16-barrel-assembled?variant=939064393749
    But you will need a lower, I'm doing an 80% lower that can be bought for as little as $89.00.
    https://www.ghostguns.com/home/196-dpms-308-raw-80-percent-lower-receiver.html
    It's still a good buy for the kit without the sale.
