The price seems ridiculuously low, and there seems to be a pretty high quality parts list. I had been planning on building one, but this price makes it almost not worth it, considering I would get my transfer for free.

Sounds about right.

That's a decent deal. I'm guessing they are saving a few bucks on the barrel, LPK, and the hand guard since they don't name the brands for those items. I would guess that's about what I spent to build mine (before shipping charges and transfer fee).

You will almost never save money by building an AR yourself anyway. Just do it for the experience/fun/customization. Even if you find good deals on all the parts, the shipping charges can add up quick.

I found that I dident have a bunch of unwanted parts left over after i swaped out what came "standard" and what I wanted, when I built myown. but if this one has all you want,,,,Do it.

My last 7.5" built ran about $1200 with the parts I put into it. That includes sights and light.

I'm in about 750 and that includes a TRX extreme rail....

Building it yourself means you get everything the way you want it, for the lowest possible price...

that's also a 7.62x39 build, requiring a more expensive bolt and firing pin, along with XP wolff hammer spring...

Vanderjack is legit and it's possible to build an AR pistol for about that price.

I have about $600 into my 10inch AR pistol and $500 into my 7inch AR pistol

I'm 700 down and no sights yet - Spikes pistol lower / Adco upper. Couldn't build for what I was able to score the upper for and I already had a BCG.

Seems like a legit seller - read through his GB feedback to make your own best educated decision.

Here is my build
80% lower- $70
CMMG upper complete - $330
Spikes buffer tube/magpul rear sight- $50
DPMS LPK+BB (in CA)- $65
Bushnell Holosight $155
Magpul handguards- $25

Right about $700

Your choice of a different firearm at 30% higher cost is irrelevant to the question asked.
Reading comprehension, learn it, practice it, then post.

Contact is DoubleTap. I have a 7.5 on layaway with him. Aero Precision OEMs for Armalite, Spikes, and others. They are starting to sell uppers and lowers in bulk on GB and thru Surplus Ammo in WA. I guess I saved about $200 he says. AP has a Facebook page now. Will be matching MagPul color palette soon. But John can do anything you want. Buy it.

I bought a 7.5 barrel, upper & other parts from him to build mine, and as a newbie had all kinds of questions. He was patient & we had a good chat. He didn't have the upper in stock that I wanted, but arranged to have it drop-shipped to me!

+1 for vanderjack!

I didn't even think to look to see if he was member here. It seems like a good price, and save me the headache of getting another set of parts going (i have two stripped sitting in process). I may have to convince SWMBO that I NEED this

Thank you , and I do respect your opinion even if I seem abrasive at times.
My screen persona is nothing like how I treat my customers.
The Aero builds are mil spec LPK
Mil spec barrels we buy at 250 at a time
We just starting using Sun Devils new Buffer tube, real quality.
Spring and buffer , RRA.
Mil spec Flash hider
RRA BCG or M16 Mil spec
Tuned gas port and gas port size in barrel to make em run smooth.
The price is fair and the quality is top notch.

Mods this is not an ad, I just wanted to answer what was asked.
