I have been wanting to get one of the complete lowers from Pete in NH for $235. Also a matched flat top upper for $100. Has me at $335. I own a b/bc/ch. If I send this upper to BM and get one of their complete barrels assemblies added (barrel, front sight, gas tube and handguards ,http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/barrel-assemblies/pbbl16m4a.asp) for ~$210, that leaves me at ~$545 plus the shipping. Am I missing anything, or do I have a new rifle for under $600 counting shipping and all? I just want another blasting and coyote hunting rifle.

Thanks for any info.

When you buy a complete rifle, there has been an 11% federal excise tax added to the price, plus middleman and dealer markups. If you buy the components separately, you actually can build it cheaper than you can buy it - but you get no warranty, then.

Yeah, but, it's soooo much fun to build your own rifle up, and you get that warm fuzzy feeling when look at, admire with pride, and caress [red][size=2][b][i]YOUR[/i][/b][/size=2][/red] baby! - [^] __________________________________________________________ Clean my gun - your so much better at it...
