    That "flat shape" forging has been in use for years. I've seen those left "blank" as well as being used for logos like yours has.
    Rainier Arms used to sell them and I used to see the same uppers without anything on the flat area all over, but I can't seem to find them now.
    KE Arms is the only one I can find that currently offers it.

    I actually like it. It's a nicely executed means of crating a nice surface for branding.

    I know I could google it, but what does WWSD stand for?

    What Would Stoner Do?
    It was a concept rifle done by Inrange TV

    A joint effort between several sources then made into an actual production rifle and just recently started getting in people's hands.

    In addition to the video posted on the previous page, check this out.

    What Would Stoner Do.

    Basically it's a modern interpretation of what Eugene Stoner would have come up with, if he was designing the AR-15 in 2020 as opposed to the late 50s. It aims to be a very durable, very lightweight combat rifle utilizing the best cutting-edge materials and technologies available without sacrificing reliability. It eschews superfluous features like forward assist and telescoping stock, in favor of simplicity and lightness.

    I was building WWSD carbines before WWSD carbines were cool.

    https://forum.pafoa.org/showthread.php?t=320603

    I finished mine after they started their original concept, but I had been planning it for a year or more prior.
    Great minds think alike, I guess. Ha.

    I like the rifle, but I have to admit I am digging that case. Looks pretty good for an inexpensive case. About $37 at Primary Arms, but not all colors in stock.

    So what*s the typical weight and cost of build on these, in comparison to a standard ar?

    Mine weighs in just a hair under 5 lbs for the complete rifle sans optics. With a fully loaded 30 round magazine, it's just under 6 lbs. With full magazine and the Holosun red dot on mine, it's 6.25 lbs. And with all that plus the Vortex 3x magnifier, it's just under 7 lbs, all-in.

    Cost for the prebuilt rifle from Brownells is $1699. Assuming all individual components are available for sale, you could theoretically piece it together for ~$1500, plus some minor smith work to get the ambidextrous PDQ lever to fit into the standard KP-15 lower.

    You can build a close facsimile with less expensive component substitutions for anywhere between $800 and $1200, really depends on what you prefer to put in your rifle. The following video explains the components chosen and why. The only addendum is that the final rifles shipped with in-house KE Arms carbon fiber handguards which are functional clones of the unobtainium Faxon carbon handguards.




    A big chunk of the money goes into the Young hard chromed BCG ($300), the KE Arms SLT-1 trigger group ($220), and aforementioned carbon fiber handguard ($320, out of stock at brownells currently)

    Awesome. Thanks for the info.

    The weight is about perfect in my mind. I just need to get over the mental baggage of the stock, lol

    Best of luck with the build, truly impressive and inspiring!
