After reading this board extensively, it looks like a J&T kit is a great way to start with AR-15 DIY. In looking at the J&T site, it appears that I can start out with a no-frills Carbine kit for $450. Am I reading this right? Here's the link for the C1C kit:

All I need in addition to that is a stripped lower?

TIA.

Kernel, Yep - that's it. This is the same kit I built up, on a Eagle Arms lower, about a month ago. The J&T fit and finish is very good. You'll be happy with this rifle. -John

Thanks much for the quick feedback, John.

Yeah...what J-T-B said. Love mine. Lots of help on this board, too. Good luck.

I'll add that I LOVE my J&T M4gery. Go with Chuck's "group buy" (there should be a recent post in this forum from him). I was in on his last deal, and you'll save a goodish chunk of change between shipping and the 5% discount.

My A2 Carbine upper from J&T has functioned flawlessly, now with about 800 rounds through it.

I absolutely LOVE my J&T kit AR!!! I've been putting it through quite a wringer, and it's been performing flawlessly! Here's my J&T 20" flattop: [img]http://www.burnerblog.com/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_inventory%20002.jpg[/img]

I'm over 1000 rounds without ANY malfunctions of any kind through my PWA J&T 16' carbine

My J&T M4gery is an excellent unit...perfect fit and finish. J&T are top notch to deal with, and from what I understand, if there are any problems they are quick to respond. Mike
