    Mailed a check earlier this week to a member here for him to conduct two transactions for me.

    So I've paid for a little brass (210 .38 special, 100 SPP .45 and 10 .357 magnum) as well as trading 49 pieces of LPP .45 brass...and that transaction is done as of yesterday.

    Also paid for 1200rds of M22...just waiting on that trade to be finalized.

    Then I gotta finally get my stuff from a couple hours away. :D

    I was at Walmart in Simpsonville, SC last Saturday with my youngest daughter. We were there to get our fishing licenses.

    I saw CCI .22LR on the shelf.

    "Any limit on your .22LR?"

    "Nope."

    "I'll take 10 boxes."

    "Standard, Stinger, or low velocity Quiet?"

    "You have Quiet? I'll take 5 Quiet and 5 Standard."

    "Looks like we only have 3 Quiet."

    "3 and 7, then."

    Mine was averaging 5 lb 8 oz; springs dropped it to 4 lb 4 oz. $30. We'll see how it shoots after a few hundred rounds.

    Good luck!! Once you do the first, you'll wonder why you ever paid for one to be assembled. (and hopefully you have some punches handy, and a cotter pin or something else for the pivot pin detent)

    Just curious...what are you going to use as a how-to guide as you proceed?

    If you want another source, Brownells has a nice how-to: http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/lid=11011/learn/

    If that link doesn't work (and it's iffy depending on what you're browsing on), go to the Desktop Site if you're on mobile, click Learn, then find Build an AR. There's a section for assembling the lower.

    7 short video clips, plus a PDF (for each clip) you can print out. I still grab the PDFs I keep store away with the tools, even after building a dozen or so.

    ETA: forgot, the buffer tube and stock are in the next section, two sections here: http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/lid=11012/learn/

    This weekend, some Cleanshot and Blackout powder, along with WSPs for good prices down at the sectional.
    Oversize 6-48 screws and tap from Brownells because a cheap drill press isn't.
    Wilson Valu-line hammer, some plunger tube, and an ejector for the 1911 build, I think that's enough junk to make it smoke.

    I ordered a couple of these stocks for my boy and me. They will go on a couple of CZ455's that I have up in the gun room. Same specs but with different colors. Campfire camo for me. He wanted the Rhino camo. They should be her near Christmas time.

    I also sent off a 455 barrel to get threaded. That'll be back next week.
