How much will it cost to build an M4 from scratch? I don't care too much if its A1 or A2. Thanks.

Several dollars, give or take.

an M4A1 is going to cost a pretty penny

I think he's saying a real M-4A1 would cost a lot, it'd be full auto. An M-4gery (civi legal) you could probably build for around $600, give or take.

He’s eluding to the fact that a M4A1 would have that third happy selector position.

Check out the web sites of the kit companies like J&T or Del-Ton. Pick the kit you want then add about $85-$120 to that to cover the price of a lower receiver.

1/9 or 1/7

1/9 is the "universal" twist, 1/7 is issue standard

If you go second-hand, you could get in for around $500

New............around $650 with decent parts

If you built it with every part purchased separately, it could run you $1,500

Sort of like building a car by shopping at PEP Boys..
