Threw Together a New AR

I've had a lower and some miscellaneous parts laying around for a while and finally decided to build something. Looking at all of my ARs I realized I only had one (fairly) lightweight range rifle with a 1x optic. Obviously I could have solved this by replacing the variable zoom optic on another AR, but where's the fun in that?!

Haven't made it to the range yet, but I'm liking it so far. Components include a PSA mid length 5.56 upper with what they call an enhanced compensator, Holosun 510C, PSA custom AR match grade trigger, KAG foregrip, Ergo grip and lower parts including a 45/90 selector switch, B5 Systems bravo stock.

The PSA upper is nicer than I expected and the trigger is much better than I expected. I'm into the trigger for less than $100 and it's all kinds of good. Very little take up and a crisp break just under 3 lbs (advertised weight is 3.5 lbs).

The Holosun 510C is as expected but I'll need to test their auto brightness adjustment a bit more. Leaning towards turning that off at this point.
