OK, once again I am new at this so maybe I am missing something obvious, but I dont get it. If you can by a complete lower from RRA for 250.00 and a complete upper for 400.00 (prices from the website), why would you want to spend an extra 240.00 to get the Complete gun for 890.00. Is there somthing I am missing? It looks like that might be a good way to go unless I am completely missing somthing. Thanks Again

Better spell this one out. First what gun for 890? Second, If you are talking about the LEGP, it's 660

I believe the difference in price is caused by the tax rifle manufacturers have to pay on a complete rifle they sell.

Hmmm..if you are speaking in generic terms, by all means, buy a stripped lower, a lower parts kit, butt stock with buffer and spring as well as a fully completed upper (important that the upper is already properly headspaced and tested!) Get a good basic AR book, Duncan Long's is good for beginners, and assemble it yourself, you will learn a ton about the gun and it's operation. J&T sells good to very good quality uppers at a real reasonable price ($280 for 16" car upper , pre or post) www.jtsurplus.com

I had to see it myself. Looks like all of their complete rifles come with the match trigger. If you buy the complete lower with the match trigger it's $350 vs the $250 without. That makes up $100 of the difference right there. I don't know about the tax M15A2 is talking about. That might be the difference there. But even so, that elusive $140 seems a bit steep for that.

There is a 10% excise tax on complete rifles, but not on parts. Still doesn't make up the diff. Norm

I thought it was 11%, I could be wrong though. Michael

OK, so it is not anything like additional parts you would have to buy or some extreme skill to do the final assembly, just some numbers that don't really add up then? Thanks for the input

The prie diff is excise tax and a lot of the companies warranty it different if you buy a complete gun vs parts.
