Wally felt compelled to tell me that "this will look 1000x times better after anodizing". I think it looks pretty damn awesome right now. He even clarified:
Yes, Wally. In fact I can't wait to build this bad boy into my long distance AR - unless I decide to do something else with it, of course... I think that no matter what, I'm going to document this build from day one - so I consider today my new AR's birthday. May 3rd, when Sting was born... I'll post pictures when the lower is finished; when it is complete; when the upper is finished; and when the rifle is finally together. And, of course, because you know me, when it's all rooney'd out with lasers and bipods and stuff. And bayonets...Ok but please make it clear that this is a sneak peak at work in process, and the final product will be hard anodized black- and that you'll post pics then too.
I think this is going to be a lot of fun...
That is all.
