Very Nice Imbel - I did two this year, one Imbel on Imbel, the other on a Coonan - both shoot better than me - this was just done, put 40 rnds through Friday - shoots great!

Happy New year!

Nice builds.

On a more serious note, What the hell happened to your feet. They are on the wrong legs.

I got a little twisted!

Coonan inch cut, Dsa stock, Spacer from Adam', Dsa nitride bolt with sand cuts, and excellent recoil Springs from "Countershot", a member right here on the Files. 171/2" CAI L1A1 barrel(hacked by someone), PNG FH, HS'd @ .249 - had 5 dimpled primers/ftf(Mayalan Surplus)out of 40 rnds - suspect its the ammo!!!! Otherwise exjects strongly on 3. Not so sure on the Aim HG's!!!! - but, So far - so good! Lets see some more of last years, last builds! C'mon!

Both are very nice. I think 2018 is going to finally be the year I build a para.

Both are very nice - bit of an edge to the crisscrossed feet. I always prefer my gun pics to have toes showing.

Respect on the proper pic.
Ce informed me that 'informal' forum protocol asks that pics show a mag should be in the rifle, your feet in the pic, and a alcohol bottle should be viewable. I dig it but I must say like 'gentlemanjoe' observed your feet are a little disturbing brother. Maybe you shotgunned that beer and really wanted to take the pic before you hit the head. Happy new year and nice build!

Feet are disgusting. Period.
And I don't drink.
Protocol be damned, you get rifles or nothing at all.

Protocol is still protocol, whether you like it or not.

And, I personally like feet and booze

^^This^^ You won't see any drunken hooves on my posts either.

Mike, all apologies but I can't clearly see your little woman's toes on that picture but I am hoping they aren't these.....
