After much lurking and reading I think I have my shopping list ready. Got to shoot a buddy's AR couple weeks ago and got hooked. This will be a build it myself project. Will add most of the custom stuff later as $$$ are available. With the current setup listed below It will save me some $$ that will go towards an ACOG. What do you think and am I missing any thing?
Megga lower from Ameetec $90
Lower Parts kit $55
Charging handle latch $15.95 (makes grabbing the latch a little easier)
Hogue grips $20
Complet bolt carrirer $115
Megga upper complete $105
What about CMT upper complete from Global Tactical for $88???
16" chrome lined 1/7 barrel $225
Rear flip sight $72
DPMS Multitool $35
Action Block $40
CAR handgrip with lower
picatinny rails $49
2 Magazines @ $15 apiece
What have I missed???
edit.. Forgot to add, already have traded for an ACE SOCOM collapsable stock. Makes it easier to share the rifle with my 12 year old son!
Just did a build using a STAG stripped lower, RRA LPK kit and RRA 6-position collapsible stock, plus a complete 16" complete chrome lined 1X7 upper from CMMG.
$700 and some change.
how about ammo?
never ran accross a gun that ran w/ out ammo
try 1000 rds of xm-193 for $180 at sportsmansguide.com or ctd.com\
more usgi mags
and a good sling
I could loose the hogue's and rear sight and tools and come in around 700 but this is still in my price rang and will probably be building several other AR's. I have 3 sons who love to shoot and AR's would make great graduation gifts when I am convinced they will be responsibale enough. Got to do some more research on the ammo. Been to the oracle and doing some reading there. What slings do you guys use. I shoot with a sling and was wondering what works good with the AR for shooting.
