This is the thread where you realize you spend too much on your AR....






-Armalite M15A4 $850 (from local gunstore during Obama panic)
-Aimpoint PRO $380 -$70 for selling included mount $310
-Aimpoint Cover $25
-LaRue LT-129 used ebay $120
-MI Rail $120 used
-Blem PWS FSC556 $80
-LaRue Fug $99
-Troy Rear site $80 (SKD 30% bin laden sale)
-Magpul MIAD $35
-LaRue Index Clips $30
-Elzetta M60 $125 ( 30% black friday sale)
-Vikings Tactics light mount $20
-Magpul ASAP $18 (SKD 30% bin laden sale)

Total: $1912



I got most of that on sale, probably would have been $300+ more if I had bought it full price!

Not included in this total are things that I use on more than this gun, for example I bought about 40 new mags and a few thousand rounds while I was building this last year, but those were specifically for me, other rifles, and the future, and not just this rifle

Never, ever tally up the total cost of your rifle in its "working" configuration.

It will just depress you.

I think the last time I tallied up just the items I added to my issued rifle it came out to over $2K (though this of course included an ELCAN SpecterDR and DocOptic combo).

I was looking at this last week and realized that I have $1900 into one, $1500 into another. My "cheap" dedicated .22 has $850 into it.

Realizing that I had a rediculous amount into those three I set out to build a more cost effective rifle: PSA chrome lined M4 with Magpul MOE furniture and removable carry handle =$700 .... Now we're talking. Should be here in the next week or so.

Yep, one picture shows everything. This thread is about facing the facts and disgusting you in how much you spent

I thought you were a "poor college student" OP? or is that only to get freebies?



my two 14.5" middies are probably up around $2000 a piece

this is not taking into consideration that one started its life as a Colt MT6400C and has gone through about a dozen revisions, 3 barrels, 3 stocks, 4 slings, 3 lights, 4 light mounts, 4 BUIS, 3 rails, 4 VFG setups, 4 rail covers, 3 optics, 4 mounts, etc...
And I looked, and behold a pale horse and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell[bound] followed with him.

I actually made a spreadsheet when I was putting together my gun...it's so much I'm almost afraid to admit it:

All prices are with tax/shipping/everything:

Lower:
AGP Arms Lower - $113.43
Daniel Defense LPK - $82.04
Magpul Aluminum trigger guard - $26.30
BAD-ASS Ambi Safety - $47.84
Magpul MIAD Basic grip, CTR, Stock mounting kit, ASAP - $225
AR15 Buttstock wrench - $6.99
5x Maglevl PMAGs - $75

Lower Total: $576.60


Upper:
MSTN custom LMT upper with LaRue 12.0 rails and gasblock - $635 (bought from a member)
LMT BCG - $126
BCM Gunfighter - $46.74
KAC Micro Front BUIS - $153.15
KAC Micro Rear BUIS - $155
AFG2 - $33.90
3x XTM panels - $21.15
3x ladder rail covers - $34.35
Primary Arms micro red dot w/ riser - $132.99

Upper Total: $1,339.28

GRAND TOTAL: $1,914.88

I've been waiting for the 2MOA Aimpoint to come out...once that's on there with probably a LaRue mount and I swap out the rail covers and AFG2 for LaRue clips and handstops it'll be a $2,500 gun easily. Still want a BattleComp, need a sling, and some sort of light and mount for it too. Lot of other things I could have bought for that kind of cash...PredatAR, OBR, Noveske, etc. but I love it still and I'll keep it forever.

It took me 3 years to buy all of that. And I bought most of it used and everything else on sale.

Well, I'm not yet finished getting my recently purchased first AR to where I want it, but it's currently looking like:

Daniel Defense M4V4
Aimpoint M4S Optic
AAC M4-2000 Suppressor
AAC Blackout 51T Muzzle Brake
Magpul MBUS Front and Rear Back-Up Sights
Magpul MIAD Grip

Currently somewhere between $3,200-$3,400...and $200 on top of that if you include the pending tax stamp for the suppressor.

Though things are about to get quite a bit pricier as I'm already going to be selling my not even used Aimpoint M4S (wish I could return it ) to replace it with a Trijicon ACOG TA11-RMR or TA33-RMR. That will add about another $1,100 or so to the total. It's been a pricey month, but I wanted to do my first AR right, and how I wanted it.

Let's just say it will take quite some time to talk the wife into letting me pick up the 10.5" Noveske 300 Blackout rifile that I am currently eyeing as my next purchase though.
