    Hey, no prob!

    You gonna document your build as you go along? I understand this is your first. Oh, and I know what it feels like having to check if stuff has finally arrived! I'm the kind of guy that likes online prices, but gets impatient and wants it delivered NOW! :D

    Let's do a race, shall we? I am waiting for UPS to deliver my CAA pistol grips, then I will do a complete from-the-ground-up Building an AR docu.

    You up for it, Glocknloaded?

    Prize would be bragging rights.

    Oh, I have a Fidelis Arms stripped lower and DPMS lower parts kit, of which I am tossing out the pistol grip and replacing with the CAA pistol grip.

    I have everything else I need. Check out my thread at "All The Parts Parts You Need...." here: https://www.glockforum.com/forum/f10/all-parts-you-need-2557/

    No not the upper yet but soon.... I have been having a hard time getting parts so when I seen the Daniel defense upper receiver I wanted I jumped on it.

    Supposedly my Magpul buttstock buffer tube/kit, Magpul grip is shipping Friday it's been on back order. I called and talked to the rep at DSG arms and added a armalite lower parts kit and ambi safety selector oh and magpul sling adapter today but haven't seen the charge go through yet so I need to call again tomorrow and make sure it was added to the list.

    And as i am typing I just remembered that I need a bullet button mag release (I live in California)
