    jwise... expect a pm for the specifics on ordering if that is the route that I decide to take.
    what you need to identify now, is what you expect/demand/require from your M4 platform; plinker, home defense, battle spec. gun, tack driver, ect.. Each identification will have it's corresponding cost, and only you can determine which are priorities. The tack driver may not be best choice for a battle gun; plinker is your Mini-14, home defense different from tack driver but could be same as battle gun. If you are patient and do your homework, you can get a very decent platform, and not exceed your $679 (by too much )

    most people here observe the rule: buy once, buy right. you can compromise on a plinker, but definitely not on home defense or battle. buy the very best that your wallet will allow and you won't be sorry. good luck and welcome to the world of the Black Rifle................may god have mercy on your soul. lol

    ps....good reference point leaning on jwise for info.

      Ok guys I was convinced. It took a while to get everything together. CMMG upper and lower. I bought the complete lower at a local gunshow before the hysteria (election). I ordered the complete upper from aimsurplus the day after the election. I put an inexpensive UTG rear sight on it just so that I can put some rounds through it. The current economic depress....oops. I mean recession has put the rest of the toys on hold.

      And here it is!

      disclaimer: new camera, still tinkering with it.

        Looks GOOD! Now, check the white balance on your camera setting, and set it for indoor incandescence lighting. Then, be sure to focus...

          Thanks!
          The focus was ok. The shutter speed was a bit slow and I wobbled. Note to self: Invest in a tripod.

            Heh. There's one vendor on gunbroker who doesn't compensate for his bright red background on soviet gear and bleeds the blacks to a rust brown.

            Would you pay top dollar for this?
