It's been a long time but the ball is finally rolling and it can't be stopped. I'm super excited and can't wait to get this beast up and running.

I just finished mine from Christmas... wife gave me a blank check :) Purchased most of my stuff from Bravo Company, the upper is fantastic. Wish I had this ITS lower though. Can't wait to see yours my man.

I bought that lower when they were first announced, I've just had it hidden away in a desk drawer for so freaking long! Yeah way too long to be exact but I'm thrilled it's finally coming together.

Is there going to be another run of them?

I haven't heard any rumors of another run but it's certainly something to consider.

I know I'd like to have an ITS lower, then it'll give me an excuse to the wife for the complete build :cool:

It's settled, Mike, tell Bryan he'll have a huge Team Leader mutiny if there isnt a 2nd run of the lowers ;)

If they decide not to do another run you could likely find a local engraver willing to do one up for you.

Would take the novelty out of an ITS sponsored lower run though. :(

Getting closer gents... This is just gently propped together mind you and I’m still awaiting a few small things but it's technically buildable right now.

Very high speed trigger, Mike! You must be a real operator to run an invisible trigger like that

Mind bullets, sir. Mind bullets.

 

Glad you guys like my new trigger. With that specific trigger, I have the power to kill a yak from 200 yards away.

 

In all reality, laying the Stag Arms lower parts ziploc bag of losable pieces didn't look as sexy as the other parts all laid out.

 

This is a pretty simple budget build. I didn't go with super bare bones parts but kept it lower middle class for the most part. Maybe technically middle class because I could have gotten a cheaper stock and compensator but I thought I'd try something new.

 

I have some lessons learned already from this build but I'll share those a little later.
