    Default First AR

    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.

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 !!!!!
