Faux Colt Commando Aero pistol build coming along

Got the bug a few weeks ago.....

Started with a stripped Aero Precision lower, POF trigger, KNS non-rotating trigger and hammer pins, DPMS lower parts kit (less the trigger kit), BCM buffer tube castle nut, enhanced bolt catch, sba3 pistol brace, and a USGI M16A1 pistol grip.

All that's left to get the lower finished is the bolt catch, and final torque on the castle nut.

Next is the 11.5 in Commando upper, I'm going with a fixed carry handle, chrome lined barrel ( 1/9 ). Also decided that I wanted an extra heavy buffer to increase dwell time during cycling, got a Spikes Tactical H3-T3 buffer to go with it.

Looks like you have an assortment of quality parts. I have never built one myself, but I recognize quality names. Have fun and let us know how the build progresses.

Found my upper about an hour ago....
A2 upper receiver Government profile 1/7 11.5 forged barrel, narrow carbine style hand guards, and an A2 compensator.
Also opted for a nitrided BCG.
Should ship in about 15 to 30 days

You typed lower, but the link to me to an upper. You mentioned you had a lower. She's gonna be a hoot to shoot.
