Finally!! My AR-15 came in......

Whoo Hoo!!

I'm now the owner of an "Evil Black Rifle"

I stopped by the fun store after work yesterday and picked up my DPMS AP4 Panther Carbine, very nice.

Of course the very first thing I did was to drive straight to the range and fire the gun wildly right out of the box, just kidding.

The first thing I did after I got it, besides going to the video store, was to bring it home and take it apart and give it a good once over and lube it down.

It's a pretty easy gun to break down, not as easy as an AK but still pretty easy.

I like the warning about the Cam Pin. "DO NOT FORGET TO INSTALL THE CAM PIN. THE RIFLE CAN FIRE BUT WILL EXPLODE IF THE CAM PIN IS NOT INSTALLED." Gee thanks, that's good to know.

The rifle itself looks good, except for an itty bitty scratch by the front sling lug. No big deal, I didn't buy this rifle to make it a safe queen.

I was a bit disappointed with the magazines that came with it. They were a bit errrr.. scratched. The two good looking darker ones are Colt's that I picked up at the gun show, the lighter ones came with the rifle. Oh well, all the do is hold the ammo, I'm sure they do their job.

I'll make it to the range this weekend and see how it shoot. Till then here's some pics.
