I was originally planning on just buying a new Bushmaster XM15E2 20" from www.aimsurplus.com for 699 before transfer. Then the idea was brought up to build it yourself. I was wondering if it would be any cheaper to build a new Bushmaster, I want all new Bushmaster parts. This is my first AR so I want a new one where no crazy problems are goin to come up out of nowhere. Anybody have any good sites to check out on the internet for new Bushmaster parts? For everything except the stripper lower it's 650 from Bushmaster. This is just as expensive as buying a whole rifle from Aimsurplus. So anyone have any ideas? I'm in highschool and just trying to save as much money as possible.
