    Here's a pic. Basically a parts gun that my buddy built, and he let it go pretty cheap.

    M4 Configuration
    -Rebuilt Oly Arms lower
    -New bolt carrier group
    -Painted stainless heavy barrel 16"
    -Colt night sights in the rear (need to find a matching front)
    -Flip down front sight
    -Rail system with foreward grip

    I put about 150 rounds through it, not a single hiccup. It was just on a pistol range with a quick zero, so no imput on accuracy yet.

    I need to clean it up a bit, the lower needs some refinishing but for 300 bucks who cares? Also can anyone help me identify what upper is on this thing?

    That is a buddy indeed. The PRI front sight/gas block and GG&G rail system are worth an easy $300 parted out on their own without the rest of the rifle. Throw in $150 for a new bolt carrier group. So he could have probably gotten $450 immediately and still had a barrel, lower receiver and A2 upper left over. Definitely a smoking deal...

    Whose barrel is it? Are you sure it is stainless? It looks like your typical M4 barrel and the only people I know making those in stainless are Olympic.

    What forge mark is on the right side of the upper behind the forward assist? It probably won't help too much; but it may narrow down the manufacturer. Also check for a "Y" on the rear face of the rear takedown lug. If you see a "Y" then it is a YHM/Bushmaster upper.

    Great deal. I've seen a lot of decent builds in the $500 range, but $300 is a steal.

    Thanks guys, it was definitely a deal. I would have gladly given him another $100 for the thing. It was just that we were both broke, I was barely able to scrape up the cash for this thing.

    I just spoke with him today. He said the upper was a Rock River Arms. And the barrel was a lothar walther ss bbl.

    I heard good things about the RRA stuff, any input on the barrel?

    If I had a buddy that sold me that carbine for $300, I'd get him a 12 pack of beer, a date with my sister and a room at the Holiday Inn Express.

    Also to the OP:VERY nice deal! If I had friends like that, I'd own an AR instead of just lusting for one....
