My daughter, SIL and grand-daughter are in for the holiday on leave. They brought me this pile of junk ;) :D and I'm looking for ideas on what to do with it. Any suggestions? Should I scrap it or try to make the best of it? My comments are pure sarcasim.
The lower is a DPMS
The grip and collapsable stock are Magpul
A H buffer and spring
A 30 round PMag
Laser and pressure switch
Mid length handgaurd

Looks like you just need a lower parts kit, upper receiver, bolt carrier group and a barrel. You sure they didn't bring it to you just so you'd complete it for them? :D

Nope. John has already built 3 for himself. They knew I was looking for a lower and he had this one just lying around. I've got the LPK on order already. Having problems finding the upper that I want, everyone seems to have the A3 flat-tops but not the A2 wwith carry handle.

Just go with a flat top and put a removable carry handle on it - that's what I'm doing with mine. Going with a flat top gas block also and putting a removable iron sight on that. I figure that this way I'll have it built with a lot of flexibility should I wish to try other configurations. I'm going with a Magpul foregrip that I can put rails on for a bipod and a light because I figure I may very well need a light on if for the dark winter nights if wolves get into my sheep.

My in laws and family would NEVER bring me "junk" like that!!! Lucky DEvil!!!
I have to admit that I'm pretty blessed. Now if my other SIL would just get me that M203 that I want, all will be grand.

My kids are good with this also. They got me a Ruger Blackhawk 44 mag for Christmas 2 years ago. My son got me a black powder 50 cal pistol for fathers day. This Christmas they got me a Marlin 44 mag 1894 lever gun.

I took everyones advice and built it, finally. Not the carry handle A2 version but I can always put the clamp on handle later. I'm actually thinking of putting a small optical on top with an offset mount for the laser sight.

Nice looking rifle! When you start to add things to it, just make sure you don't go overboard like some folks do lol it's easy to get more things for those than you will actually need/use, I'm tempted often.

Actually, the "junk" term was sarcasim and I stated that in my original post. I have thanked and thanked and offered to pay for all of it. And as to the M203 from my other SIL, he was actually the one to suggest it, not me but it sounds like a nice addition.
