I felt it would be appropriate to show my most recent "bargain" build. Most of the parts were collected here on the EE over the last year or so. I also had some help from Randall at AR15barrels.com. He shortened the barrel and pinned/welded the FS for me. A+ work and quick turnaround.

Specs are as follows

Olympic "multi" caliber lower $125
lower PK $55
LAR blem upper $48
upper parts kit $15 (I think)
Ace stock $50 on the EE
Buffer and spring $15
shorten barrel and pin FS $60
YHM flip up sight/gas block $62.75 from brownells
Bolt and carrier $50 (Hey any idea what this things is for? Dunno, I'll give ya $50. OK )
Float tube -free- cut down rifle length from old model1 varmit rig
barrel -free- generous gift of fellow board member. Messed up threads on barrel
Anything else I've forgotten, I had lying around in my gun room.

total $480.75 ( unless my math is really screwed up)

And no I don't need optics, its a safe queen. Actually prob going to throw an EO512 on it. This will probably be a truck gun for the most part. If I get too friendly with it , Ill throw a BUIS on it and qualify with it as well. Right now I really like the feel of it as it is, quite light and easy to control.

You came under 500 bucks and that's not bad. Good looking rifle.

Looks nice. I went up to LA to Randall last weekend and have him thread my barrel. It was great to see him work- he does a good job.
