Pale Horse: Update

After months of not much going on (and I don't blame Wally for that; he's limited by time and supply as much as anyone), I got the lower in my hands about a week ago. The parts kit was promptly installed.

I jumped on a stock that I found on a classified; it still needs to be pinned before installation but I have it in hand.

I finagled some trades for a scope and a set of rings; the scope is here and the rings are on the way.

I've got three boxes of factory ammo and a line on some more 300BLK brass - speaking of, I may have some extra if someone wants to buy a few hundred. Don't have it in hand yet but it's converted and cleaned once-fired 5.56, reportedly mostly LC headstamps, washed, tumbled, sized/trimmed, deprimed, and swaged pockets.

The handguard has been sitting on top of my safe for quite some time.

And last night, around dinnertime, Wally sent me a picture of the assembled upper - with threats to my sanity if it was released. So it won't be posted here.

 It should ship in the next day or two, weather permitting.

By this time next week, I should have some gun porn for you.

You had better not permanently pin and cock up a perfectly usable stock.

Remember you're leaving to places that don't think an M4 stock makes you a mass murderer.

Glad to hear it's FINALLY coming together!!! Looking forward to the pics!

Post office had closed early today, I tried.
And the threats were not to your sanity, they were to your breathe-osity :)

Hope you like it!

Well, I wasn't going to tell people you'd threatened my health... 'sides, that's not as much fun.

Frei, it's going to be pinned. No way around it. I'll evaluate how best to undo that when I am breathing free air. :)
