Damn. Not too shabby looking. I'll probably join, as I'm contemplating building an AR as opposed to buying complete.
In looking at the build log, you could do most of the bends with hardwood blocks & a vise. Then MAPP gas to braze it up. If you eliminate the FA function, you've got a pretty straightforward build. I may give this one a shot.
As an aside, anyone who wonders about the inevitability of a ban should join the every forum that shares info on DIY.
All have exceptional builder forums. Off the shelf hardware may be banned but ingenuity certainly won't.
