Easy Guys Im just pointing out there is not much savings here for what seems to be a considerable amount of work an questionable quality or fit . Seems like i have seen 100% recviers recently for about $55 on sale oir as cosmetic blems ?? so your not savig $40 its more like $15 0r $20 I fully under stand that some guys dont want to be on a list an have no issue with it . I have way to many guns in my name an way to many posts on the net to pretend im not on a list . It seems to me that they look fine for most use .
Im just as poor or poorer than most of you right now . I do know if you screw one these up or its out of spec you will not save a dime if you cant use it . I also would rather use what spare them working on stuff that I cant just buy for about the same money . I will admitt if you guys are doing these with no jigs an special machinery then that is a advantage .
I have been pondering a AR build for a while now that there cheaper than a AK to build . I dont think it will be on a polymer lower how ever . I have a few ideas but I doubt there any thing new . I have put my time in scratch building receivers that are identical to factory ones . Id rather work on something thats different . I have been following a light weight build o n a differant site were the builder has one right at 4 pounds . Id like to maybe try a super light ar build
Good point on this thread running strong at least there is some buildiong going on . I rarely venture into the AR areas as I dont feel qualified to really say much.
I think the would you take it to the Mideast to fight with is a pretty legitimate question. I guess my question is what is being gained here over a aluminum ? is it cost ? easier to finish out ? weight ?
How much lighter are these over a standard one ?
I think it would be cool if they had the buffer tube an or stock built in like at least one maker does .
Ill go back to just following this thread now an see if I can learn something . Sorry if I sounded condescending. You know I question every thing
