So I'm planning on adding my first AR to the collection, but I have an issue. I can't decide between an AR-15 in some flavor or an AR-10. Eventually I'd like to have some of both, but which should I get first? I'd like to keep costs as low as possible no matter what I decide.

Whenever I do get my first AR I am planning to keep it simple:
16"
Flattop with EOTech and BUIS of some flavor
Military style 4 or 6 pos stock

No rails, lights or any other go fast (and heavy) gear.


BTW if anyone has any "recipes" for building cheap, quality ARs please post them.

Build your own lower receiver, and pick up a used upper and you are as cheap as you can get.

Stickman,

Please let me know if I'm missing something, but going to ADCO's website, if I price out a stripped lower, lower parts kit, and a stock, I'm right about the same price as buying a fully assembled lower (within $15). If that's the case, I'd rather go for the assembled lower.

Thanks!

You can find a few different stripped lowers for around $85-100 and then get a LPK from Del-Ton (made by DPMS) for $48. Or just get a lower and buy a kit, which consists of the LPK, stock, complete upper, and B/BC/CH group. That's everything you need for about $300 less than buying a complete rifle from RRA or Bushmaster.

Got it. Thanks! I should have said that pricing was for RRA stuff.
