Stopped at Firearms Solutions to see what Keith had for AR's. As expected, sold out except for 1 S&W Sport II AR. It looked lonely so I bought it. Gonna take it home tonight and clean and oil it. He had 1 20rd box of 5.56 Hornady Frontier 55gr. That'll be gone like a fart in the wind tomorrow.
I DID end up buying the list I posted from PSA. Made the expectation of everything being here by Friday. The upper and charging handle will make it but no word on the lower and BCG guess the rest will come in after I get back to work.
So, for now, I got 1 complete M&P Sport II and 20 rds of 5.56 and the PSA in pieces coming in over the next week or so.
Short range plans for Sport II are going to be replacing the front grip with MLok rail, replace the gas with a shorter system to fit the MLok and find a cheap red dot optic.
The PSA will be glassed and tinkered with as my teardown learning weapon.
Looking forward to the next few months and 3 weeks vacation in August. Just hope I can find some reasonably priced 5.56 in the near future
There's nothing wrong with getting a Sport II especially for a first AR. I was going to suggest looking for a deal on one but it didn't look like from your list that you would want that.
As far as what I put in bold in your post I quoted...I take that to mean you are going to change out the handguard to a free float Mlok rail and change out the front post sight/gas block to a low profile gas block.
Yes. thats the first thing I did with it was clean and lube it. Used CLP and let it soak in for a few minutes. Cleaned and wiped it off then reapplied some CLP for lube.Did you take the bcg out and clean it? I bought a sport 2 as a first ar swapped out the handguard for a drop in mlok and added a 3-9 scope on it. The front sight post won't be noticeable with the scope unless your running a low rings or at a sub 3x power.
