Well, I figured since they're on order and some of us are already getting parts together (at least I am....) I'd go ahead and start a thread. Here's what I have so far. SET green B5 systems SOCOM Enhanced stock, SET green BCM Gunfighter pistol grip, SET green Midwest Industries mid length 2 piece hand guard, Strike Industries charging handle, Spikes Tactical upper (to match the lower), Magpul ASAP back plate, and assorted small parts.

I think I'll replace my poverty lower (PSA) on my AR. I'm leaning toward a BCM grip and stock and a flat single stage trigger of some sort.

Then I'll save my poverty lower and build a hunting AR down the road.

I really think I'm going to bring for a geissele 2 stage finally. Never had an AR with an exceptional trigger. Bout time I changed that.

I only have the one AR now and I figure I might as well have a good trigger. Plus I really like flat triggers.

The giessele triggers are nice.
That's what everyone says. I have an ALG ACT in my 9mm and the ALG AKT in my AK74. The AKT is exceptional. The ACT is definitely an improvement over standard AR triggers, but nothing mind blowing. I want something really sweet.

You will not be hating on it.

Put a set of JP yellow springs on the ACT trigger and it will be a lot nicer for a couple of dollars. That's what I'm running in my AR9 since it is a range toy. I'm running standard ACT triggers on most of my AR's since I hunt with them and they all feel the same with I pick them up. I really didn't want anything too light for hunting or on my LR308.
