Well I think I have the rest of the plan nailed down, was able to source most stuff from an ODIN dealer who had stuff in stock, and cut some slack on pricing as well:

ODIN 10.5" barrel/gas block/gas tube
ODIN "02 Lite" 9.5 M-Lok hand guard
ODIN Minimalist Stock Kit
ODIN Atlas 7 Compensator
ODIN XMR, Ambi sling/QD plate, foregrip
Nikon P-300Blk BDC Scope 2-7x32
Tavor take-off BUIS (free! lol)

Some reloading stock to put together initial test loads - have to do something while waiting on the rest of the build parts to arrive lol.

Optic and rings arrived today, a Nikon P300BLK. My old(er) eyes really need magnification help these days, red dots don't really cut it anymore. Still waiting on some other parts, but do have the handguard sent out for cerakoting to match the upper/lower.

Have everything now exc the compensator (Odin 7 back-ordered), and the handguard which is still away for cerakoting. I didn't cerakote the stock at this point because I'm not sure if I'm sticking with this particular model for this build.

Must be nice to have a short barrel and a stock without the silly tax stamp, or is there anything like that up there?

No tax stamp stuff, but restricted to range use only - some of our gun laws make even California's look good! :cry:

Well patience was never a strong point, so put some other stuff on the back burner and put the lower together. Pretty straight forward with only one fackkk moment with installing the front take down pin. Took awhile to find that damn detent, first time. Box in place caught it the second time, and third time was the charm. Didn't hurry, watched a YT vid as I went and again went pretty smooth - everything seems to function as it should, the PNT trigger seems decent (but then everything seems decent when you're used to a Tavor's trigger lol). Now just need that upper and handguard back from cerakoting to finish it all up.
