So the good folks at Aero-Precision contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a stripped lower. I know, twist my arm.
To sweeten the deal, they even offered a Cerakote one that matches the Tactical Toaster. Because a girl’s got to accessorize 😉
So I got an email from my awesome FFL, Edmond Arms and Ammo telling me that it had arrived on Tuesday. He was busy that evening so we set an appointment for me to pick it up last night. I filled out the paperwork and fondled the lower while he ran the check.
It is, indeed, lovely. I really wish I could show you. It even has that not-yet-a-new-rifle smell. (What? Doesn’t everyone sniff their firearms?) It doesn’t even need awesomesauce. I can’t wait to see what this larval-rifle becomes.
But instead, I became a statistic. Again. For that background check that keeps our streets safe from chunks of not-yet-a-functional-firearm-just-aluminum-shell returned the dreaded delay. I suppose I shall have to console myself with one of the actually fully functional rifles already at my house. Or maybe the fully loaded and also functional handgun resting comfortably on my hip.
Oh but that lower is extra scary! It’s going to be an AR15 when it grows up! Eek! Double-plus-uber-evil!
Yep. And it’s going to hang out with the other 3 already complete AR15’s in the household. They must be defective, however, since not a single one has gone on a rampage. I bet this new one will be super duper rampagey.
Way to go Bradys! Keeping our streets safe from… Yeah, I’ll have to get back to you on whatever it is that is supposed to finish that sentence. Good jyorb!
Psst! The delay is only temporary. And in case you weren’t already aware, does not put a magical force-field around the firearms already in my possession. This one? She will be mine.
FTC: Since I don’t actually have any new shiny in my possession as of yet, y’all can just move along. There’s nothing to see here.
