Let me guess. . .you graduated boot with platoon 1488? 2099 for me, October of 1970.

Welcome to the board and to the addiction. It is easier to just empty your wallet now and get it over with - especially when you start feeding an M2! :D

One more hearty welcome to you. I hope your build goes well when you decide to do it, and as mentioned already, feel free [and you are encouraged] to ask any questions you have here along the way. Also, pictures are proof of effort, so be prepared for requests a lot! :)

Thank you gents. I'm going to build it myself. I'll save some coin and I love wrenching on stuff. I'm debating between the sarco parts kit and the OOW semi kit. Leaning toward the OOW kit because it comes with everything including the side plate and I assumed machined internals. Plus I have one of their BARs, it'd be nice to keep it in the family. Thoughts!

I have always been satisfied with both the quality of parts and service from OOW, that would be my first choice. If something is not right, they will make it right. Buy the FA kit, have the machining done by Forum member Brian, and use a KMP, Halo, or other side plate, not the OOW semi-auto side plate.

Thanks for the input. What is the issue with the OOW semi kit? Is the design of the island different?

Hi,
Exactly they use a proprietary denial island on their plates. I will let other much more knowledgeable Forum members go into detail. Buy the FA kit and others on this Forum will chime in on the most economical and recommended plates and semi-auto machining.

Welcome and thank you for your service. The secret word for today is 'HEADSPACE, HEADSPACE' I know it's a long time away but keep it in the back of your mind. Once you get her built it will be great fun.
