    OK, sorry the one in the center is not an AR 15 type but an AR 10.

    The foreground is a Colt Sporter Target, the AR 10 is an Armalite set up for match, and in the background is a Double Star and till I ended up with it I had no clue what a Double Star was. Hey, it was priced right and I am not even an AR 15 type so I bought it. :)

    The AR 10 is by far my favorite in the lot. Also in the picture the Colt and Armalite are supported by $3.00 bi pods.

    @ SpentCasing: Both are really nice, but i like the A2

    Here is my A4ish clone i use for SRS matches. Palmetto State Armory; upper lower, lpk, BCG.The barrel is a FN Criterion. Cardinal Forge carry handle setup with IBFZ. I need to put a national match free float on it.

    Two to show off, the first is (one of) my son's

    And mine:

    My AR is more special to me than any other gun I own. While my son was in the Gulf for 14 months, every Christmas, Fathers Day, Birthday, etc. while he was deployed, he ordered another part of this rifle shipped to me as a gift. We consulted on every choice, he advised and I got to pick. When he came home he sat at the kitchen table and put it all together on a lower that he already had.

    DPMS Sweet 16 upper, ACE Skeleton stock, Troy BUIS, DPMS lower, PA Red Dot

    I've since added some more little goodies.

    Someone wants to take this away from me?

    I was never an AR guy but the rifle grew on me with it's capability to make me seem like a good shot. :D

    I have a National match AR too, but this is the latest addition. It is my true franken-AR, so I will list the parts below. This is my "recce" build. I finished it up this fall with the addition of the improved stock. I started building it this spring and bought components as I could afford them. I thought there might be a shortage and a price increase come fall. I decided to go with different colors on some components to mix up the black appearance and keep with the recce rifle theme. Many, it seems, were modified in the field. I have already sent 1200 rounds down range with this. It points more naturally than any rifle I own.
    Lower Parts
    Stag lower purchased stripped.
    White Oak Armament parts kit minus trigger
    Geissle Automatics SSA trigger
    Hogue rubberized grip
    Vltor milspec stock kit
    Extended aluminum trigger guard

    Upper
    Daniel Defense 16 inch cold hammer forged chrome-lined barrel, mid length gas system
    White oak receiver M4 feed ramps done BEFORE anodizing
    Daniel Defense Omega 9.0
    Colt "C" marked bolt and bolt carrier
    Tango Down forward grip
    Surefire G2 with kit, Vltor scout mount for light
    Eotech EXPS2
    Eotech Magnifier with switch to side
    GGG Flip up irons
    Vicker's two point sling

    Stuff you don't see- Lots of PMags, lots of ammo, components and a reloading bench.

    My favorite AR pic. Colt 6920 and hundreds of pieces of brass fired through it.

    Acera, I was about to say something along those lines. I knew something wasn't right when I first looked at the picture. It took me a minute to find it.

    All I have on my phone. Ditched the quad rail for the MOE handguard and couldn't be happier.

    Friend, those sights are on backwards... and did you seriously remove a $200+ free float rail from one of the industries finest companies and slap on a Delta Ring retained no free float handguard?!
