I noticed RRA was selling complete CAR-4 kits for $660 with a chrome-lined barrel, you can save some money obviously if you assemble the rifle yourself.

www.rockriverarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=AR4001&storeid=1&image=kcara4.gif&CFID=6909744&CFTOKEN=99416349

roughly 65$ if you use a RRA stripped lower versus buying the rifle assembled.

I have never built or assembled an AR, I have however field stripped them, if you used the RRA stripped lower, would the $65 you save be even worth the headache of assembling it yourself?

It would save the headache in that I would not have to use an FFL dealer to buy most of the rifle, just the lower.

Is there any other stripper lower that would be just as good as quality as the RRA stripped lower that would work with this kit, yet cost less money?

thanks in advance

Yes, just get a stag lower, it is made by the same people anyway (CMT) they also make colts stuff too. you can get a stag lower for about 90 bucks from gunsamerica.com or a local dealer.

you would have to buy a few tools.


savings is minimal but the knowledge that comes from building your own out weighs it.

How much would you have to invest in tools?

How long would it take the average person with no experience to assemble a stripped lower into a lower receiver with a parts kit?

check the tacked threads in the "build it yourself" forum.

He will only be putting together the lower, so he doesn't need an action block.

usamma, putting together a stripped lower is not hard and worth the savings. I used a hammer, pliers wrapped in electical tape, and allen wrenches as punches.
