I did run across the Ruger trigger, I'm just not really familiar with them at all. I suspect it's somewhat like the SIG version.

I'll see what Mr. Larue has to say, I'm not in a big hurry. And I may just do another Geissele.
Well, at least they're 100% honest about the situation. They told me a minimum of 10 weeks before they would be shipping them. So Geissele it is.

I decided to pull the trigger on the upper receiver. In two months they could be impossible to get..... they almost are now.

I actually have enough spare junk sitting around to complete this rifle if I choose to. But I'll wait and see if the other parts I pick will be available first.

Bolt carrier group solved.

I called my guy at AIM Surplus here in Ohio. AIM is having bolt carriers made to their specifications. Made in USA, high quality, machined from 8620 tool steel. Then coated with Nickel Boron. He said if you don't like it, bring it back.

It's on the way.

I have almost everything. The two items I ordered first haven't arrived yet.... I need the hardware kit and the trigger guard. Other than that, it's all here, inspected and in perfect condition. Ready for assembly.

Still waiting on the lower hardware kit and a billet trigger guard to ship from Aero Precision. It's in stock, I ordered 05/01, selected 2nd day UPS, they still haven't shipped. Exchanged emails last Friday, they said it'll ship Monday. I guess I should have asked which Monday.... 😆

I just ordered the hardware kit from AIM Surplus like I should have from the start. The kit will be here Thursday. Costs less at AIM as well.

I ordered the billet trigger guard from Brownells. It should be here by Thursday as well.

I have the rifle assembled, have performed all of the functional checks, all is well. I only need the trigger guard (due tomorrow), and then put the forward grip on and the new Vortex Razor Holographic Sight. I also have new Troy iron sights coming they'll be here Friday. After I sight it, and shoot a couple of rounds I'll post a photo.

I put the rest of the new AR together, the only thing that hasn't arrived is the Troy battle sights. Their busy bouncing back and forth between UPS and USPS, they're trying to decide who will deliver them....

I think it turned out well, it's nothing super special, just an assembly of good quality parts. I haven't shot it yet but will tomorrow. Everything moves and cycles super smooth. I made a few minor changes to the components, so I'll list the complete list below. You can buy an AR15 for less, but not with the same parts I used.
