    Default My Ar build thread

    After a handful of ak builds I decided it's time to try atleast one AR so I traded one of my pistols I rarely shot for a superior arms complete lower with a 6 position stock then tonight I traded my old gun cabinet for a stripped DPMS flattop upper with M4 feed ramps







    As of right now I'm not sure what route I'm gonna go with for the barrel and hand guards

    If you're going with a 16" barrel, check out the mid handguard/gas length. I've been very happy with mine. Because of the longer sight radius I can shoot it almost as well as a standard 20" with open sights and is less fussy with the longer gas system. Plus cosmetically it doesn't have that long barrel sticking out of the handguard look.

    Run, run away as fast as you can....
    It all starts with a sweet 16", then an SPR , or diff cals. they will talk you into mathcing siblings. feeling left with a burning desire, the coolness of an SBR will find its way into your hands. they will force you into scowering the net to buy them the latest fassions and as one will not be out done by the others will guilt trip you into a new treat. The just one more never ends

    You have been warned!!!!!!! but i fret its too late....
