I finally broke down and started assembling an AR. Bought the Charles Daly complete lower from CFS $375 shipping and tranafer fee, blem upper receiver off another site $87,bolt carrier group $145 off another site,bolt handle $15 and a Delton barrel assy and 4 window Promags for $291 for a total of $913.
Did I spend too much?
thats hard to say . at one time we were going on about how cheap we could build an ar-15/m clone.
today thats all out the window. the surplus parts are gone, the glut of ar-15 parts is mostly gone .
considering the panic buying and the gouging going on recently i think it is going to be a long time --obamma is going have to be out of office and a gun friendly administration be in power before we see discount pricing on ar-15 stuff.
there were some pretty decent ar-15s going for $899 not counting mags so $900 for an ar-15 build ain't far off i don't think.
The Sig m400 I got with a Sig 3X scope "T" retical was 879 on sale at Walmart just 6-8 months ago , Hell there 15 or better now WTF?? I wanted to do up a heavy barrel 20-22" barrel one but stuff went ballistic,,, price wise, or totally out of stock,, so I just bagged that idea for now,, my Bushmaster and Sig will tie me over for now,,, but I sure did want to build a super varmiter,,,,,,DRAT !!!!!
Maybe later,,,,,,, Put up some pics when you're done.
I ordered the barrel assembly tuesday and I got a notice Delton shipped it wednesday. I thought that was pretty fast shipping. Thanks for your repliies.
