Completed my first lower build (w/pics)

I completed my first build this weekend. It was definitely fun, and my parts seemed to be within spec, because I didn't have any problems.

I went with a Palmetto State Armory stripped lower:


and a CMMG parts kit:




Based on the instructions given at AR-15.com, I began the build.
1. Magazine catch and button:



2. Magpul trigger guard:


3. Bolt catch:


4. Takedown pin (blurry):

I picked up my PSA stripped lower today. I'm excited to get the rest of my parts.

Hater...



You could do a whole thread about half an AK, but I think you'd need more martini's Nem.

The CMMG parts kit is pretty neat. Color coded parts bags and a box cover showing where everything goes. Do they all come like that?

Looks like a good set up to recommend for all first time builders.
