Is this kit the whole gun?
Kent E on Feb 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: what you see here appears to be a complete upper and a lower receiver build kit, same as I've purchased and assembled. Read the description, you will need to provide an incomplete lower receiver. PSA build kits , price and quality are pretty decent. I'd recommend
Is the hand guard on this the MOE M-LOK Hand Guard? The photos looks similar to what's on the Magpul site, but I can't quite tell.

Why does the title say Nitride but the description says Melonite? Also, which one is it?
Airborne on Jun 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From what I understand, Melonite is a form of Nitride. It probably has more to do with what the manufacturer of the barrel lists it as.
Why is this always out of stock in ODG? You have the MOE mid-length kits in ODG, and you have EPT groups in Flat Earth kits... How about taking some EPT groups and throwing them in the Mid-length ODG kits? I've been waiting for this to be available in ODG for almost a year. I even clicked "notify me when this is available".

Extremely exciting first build!
As in the title, this is the first and for that reason will always have a special place in my heart. It's a good looking, we'll functioning piece of hardware. I'm pleased all the way around as the price was right and the service excellent as well.
