Hello my name is Craig Lester being a complete newbee when it comes to the AR15 I am wondering about opinions on which is better for a first time owner of a AR15 purchasing a rifle from a known Manufacturer or from a kit built by a class II manufacturer. I am leaning toward the kit built by the class II manufacturer because of price.  I have met the guy building these and seen his rifles. They seemed as well constructed compared to the major names. What should I know or look for in his AR’s. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I would think about buying a kit, tools and instructional video and just build your own. It's a good way to get to know and understand your rifle. You won't save too much, but the learning experience will be worth it.

Good luck and welcome to the clan!

Read the problems section, many are with Frankenguns.

Barrel quality - are you getting what you want?  Chrome lined bore AND chamber?
