This is a quality build without breaking the bank. Aero Precision makes some great stuff at fair prices (even though they didn’t install the hammer spring correctly). The Troy Alpha hand guard is great — we have one on She-Shepherd’s AR15 SBR — but again it’s a great balance between price and features / functionality.

Bond reports excellent accuracy out of his Ice Arms 7.5″ barrel and hand loaded 110gr Nosler Varmegeddon projectiles under Hodgdon H110 powder and CCI #400 primers.

Keep Bond’s build in mind when we vote on the top submission on May 29, 2014.
