ok here is what i have spent so far:

DSA lower $130
DBL Star 20" Bull Kit $565 w/ Badger Tac Latch and Bipod Stud in FF Tube
20 round mag $20
Burris Tactical Rings 1" Highs $40
I have a Leupy 10x AO that I am putting on it for now, until i have the $$$ to get either a Bushnell elite 10X40TT or a Burris FFII Tactical 4.5-14-40AO

So, right now i have a grand total of $755 in it. beats the heck out of buying a Bushmaste Predator for $1100!!!!

I would LOVE to have one in .17 Remington, that would be sweet. I have a 700 already but that would be awesome!!

Here is a stock photo of what i will have:

Got the kit on Friday and had it done on Friday....The hardest part aside from distinguishing parts without a manual was installing the bolt-catch( I needed a third hand!!) other than that the next one will be a breeze

Congratulations thats a nice looking rig, must have been pretty satisfying(aside from the money saved) to do the work yourself, I have a HB DPMS myself, its a sickness once you get going on guns(but how sweet it is:) ) hope yours shoots as sweet as it looks.
