When you building the DD? Which upper did you get?
I am building it when one of the four lowers I ordered come in, but the upper is complete, I picked it up last night. Got a 14.5 for $799 with DD Omega Rail and cold hammer forged barrel, which is something that I have really been looking at hard lately. Bought a BCM compensator for it from Ranier to pin, bringing it to Barking Irons tomorrow I think.
Bought a PSA LPK for $180/$200, I have two different ones so not sure which I will use, just waiting for a lower. Got anxious and bought two Seekins lowers from Ranier last night, so will use whatever comes in first from those four.
Drew, I personally think that you should buy a 16in, but I like the look of the 14.5, and either pinning it or getting a stamp, you will still have to spend more money with the 14.5. So factor that in and determine what you want to do, we cant make the decision for you.
