how cheap could one build a reliable ar-15 for before the great obamma panic of 2013?
lets add up some parts
lower PSA/DSA or AA blem $60 + 8 shipping
m4 stock kit from SMG $27
m4 barrel from SMG $80
a-3 flat top upper from SARCO $59 shipped, split washer $1
JSE lower parts kit bulk pack $49.00 forward assist kit $9.00 port door kit $7.00 , a-1 flash hider $6 , gas tube $10, gas block $16, barrel nut $7
standard m16 bolt carrier $119 , standard m4 hand-guards $10.00
charging handle $14 --
what are we looking at about $480 + shipping ?? SMG and SARCO you get free shipping via a discount code or being above $50 --
JSE shipping would be under $20 all new parts for everything.
and i have built a few for even less toss in a mil surplus upper and stock-use a left over pulled fsb/gas block---LOL
with the used parts i have seen AR-15s for less than $400 and they ran just like the big $$ ones.
just look what they are going for today??----
