    Finally finished my first AR15. I was going for a Riflegear midlength upper but I got a good deal for a PSA upper that just came in. I need to clean and lube it up for the range next weekend. I've never shot an AR15 before so I'm excited. I won't be buying optics anytime soon so I'm excited to learn how to shoot with iron sights. It's just for paper targets only.

    Also will this cheek riser work with a charging handle? I'm using a 4 position stock? I can pull the charging handle back but I'm not sure if this will interfere.

    Currently watching youtube vids on how to deal with common AR15 malfunctions.

    I still need to save up for a ARMS rear BUIS.

    Also I did the conversion myself on the Saiga 12.

    Are you forgoing a rear sight?

    Also, I would seriously reconsider that cheek riser on the AR. They block the charging handle when the stock is collapsed. If the gun is anything other than a range toy I would definitely forego the cheek riser

    im looking for a rear sight. i found a few. just trying to narrow it down.

    ill decide whether to forgo after i take it to the range. its comfortable at the moment with the stock fully extended which allows the charging handle to function.

    its just a range toy. i never planned on doing classes or competition.

    If that's your first AR, well... You're doing it right! Nice! :D

    Even if you aren't planning on anything, it'll be impossible to get decent groups without a rear sight. Having just a front sight would be akin to aiming slugs with just a front bead on a shotgun, except that bead being only a foot or so from your eye.

    That Saiga is wicked, and that's saying alot cuz I'm not a huge fan of the AK shotguns. Nice job!
