Hopefully, someone who can live with my brown-gun mentality...

Or, maybe just a point in the direction of a shop who is easy to deal with, and who doesn't mind lots of questions from a newbie.




Well the "family" can help you build it....I'd start with iblis and teknic for parts.

First things first, do you know what configuration you want? The parts you want will dictate the vendors you buy from. I would definitely start with a lower from Iblis or Teknic though and if you know the configuration either of them may have a lot of the other parts you want.

Yes, I'm sure of most of the features I want, but the majority of proper terminology eludes me.

As far as name brands go, I'm not smart enough on that either. Guess I need LOTS of help.



Go to the AR Builders forum look around in the picture threads...find a picture of something close to what you want. as for brand names..... MEGA is local and makes a very nice lower and upper (thats what I have on mine). Teknic and Iblis both sell them and are VERY helpfull

BAH! Just spend the weekend pointing at parts (of guns!) that you like and we'll tell you what they are and where you can get them.

ETA- I have a couple of ideas that may appeal to your brown gun mentality let me see what I cna come up with in the next couple of days.

Both list their standard prices online, once you find something you want just call either of them...tell them you will get them banned if they don't give you a good price and VOILA!

This may be contradictory to the popular opinion. To each his own. I got my last kit & first form M1S and I'm happy with it. It shoots better than I do. I have put over 4k rounds of Wolf down the pipe and still hits other peoples Tannerrite @ 100yds off hand. It was cheap yet it is reliable. .

It's one option I thought I throw out there, but supproting to locals may be a better idea. I got this one before I knew them.

Just my $.02

I've actually heard good reviews on them too. A kit would require you to buy a lower which you could still buy from a local

Nothing like literal intrepretation!!!

I have nothing bad to say about Model 1 with the exception of their customer service attitude. They seem to be a bit surly on the phone. Also the times they have given me for delivery are very different than what actually happens. It will ship tomorrow some how turns into next week in actuality. I've only ordered bit pieces from them however.

If you are interested in 6.8 please IM me before buying a barrel. There have been some issues with chrome barrels being under bore.

Myself and DaBunny have every tool you could ever need for an AR build, You should find out who in your area has them, or you will be doing a long drive.

What R-32 said, and we can build it in a bar or restaurant without taking the parts out of the bag.

You guys are all welcome to meet here (about half way for all) and use his shop. I'm sure he has everything one could need to put together an AR.

Phone Boy doesn't have one either nor does he come to shoots and we still let him play here.

Come to think of it, why do you post here R-32?

I just had one built this weekend by Iblis. I would highly reccomend deciding on what you would like. Then visit him at the Puyallup Gun Show (hes not going to be there Feb). You can pick the components al-la carte.

Heres the link to the thread where I asked for help. Pictures included.

I dont have any intel on that. I was too busy parting with money and drueling on the new AR when I saw him. Sorry, forgot to ask.

Look in the Washington State EE forum. Someone there was selling some Rock River ArmsNM 2 Stage Triggers for $80 bucks. If they'e no longer available go to www.triplebreakproducts.com and look up Rock River Arms in the product menu and you will see the same triggers there for $95 wich is still a good deal. I'm using RRA 2 stage triggers in both of my AR's and I swear by them. They will improve your shooting by 100%.

Looks like it's missing an upper receiver, bolt carrier group,charging handle, bare lower with parts kit, fire control group, 16" lightweight barrel, front sight / gas block and rear sight, flash hider, and for optics, some nice mounts.

The prices and features from Model 1 Sales look good, from my noob POV, but they are a lot like what I can pay/get from Olympic Arms, and Oly is a more local company. I beleive that the recomendations wouldn't be here for M1Sales if they didn't have a good rep, but how do they differ from Oly? I don't want to find out 5 years down the line that the value of the thing has taken a huge nosedive with their quality reputation.

TIA, folks.
