    That's all you have left to find on your latest project isn't it?

    Yeah, I have been waiting for him to contact me "after he got moved", guess that won't happen.

    Office closed 15 minutes ago so will try again tomorrow.

    Got plenty of wood out in the back yard, just can't seem to make it "free float".:D:p

    If I can't go with what I really want, I will just have to go with some of Boyd's AR wood stocks and change my thinking about free floating and order the parts to attach Boyd's hand guards. It would basically take a delta ring assembly and a triangle hand guard cap for the front of the guard. May have to get a couple more small parts cerekoted to match the color scheme.

    Sadly that seems to be the only option. Unless you go to the auction with a real fat wallet. I suppose 3-4 months of moderator pay should about cover it.

    I've never seen a wood free float AR.
    But I have an idea of how I can make it happen.

    Yeah. That's similar to what I was thinking.
    Sure is pretty.

    Yes, it is. I have tried calling every day since Tuesday and this morning is the first time that I have gotten an opportunity to actually leave a message. Hopefully some will call me to tell me that they just happened to have one to send.:rolleyes:

    I bought a new car yesterday so my quest for wooden AR furniture has been put on the "back burner" to simmer for a while. Boyd's will have to do when the time comes back around.
