Rules: You have $600 and need to put together the best AR-15 you can without going over-budget. List your items/prices/sources. The $600 is all inclusive (shipping costs/accessories, etc). Let see how AR-15 savvy you are...

Here's mine:

Lower, stripped: EA, $129 (w/tax) local
Kit: Contract 20" A2, $425 (w/shipping) M&A Parts
Magazine: Armalite 20rd, $29 (w/tax) local
Sling: USGI Issue (Marine Issue--not the cheesy "silent" sling), $14 (w/shipping) Quantico

Total: $597.00

The FUN way: ADCO RRA lower: $90+4+20 FFL fee EE ARFX stock, rec. ext., spring, buffer: $80 (perfect condition!) EE DPMS flat extended high upper rcvr (no FA) $109 (never fired!) EE mags- 2 Colt 20 rounders + Adventureline 30 for $57 C-More dot sight $free (thanks Doc B!) I decided not to try for a bargain on barrel and bolt assembly. ADCO. Medesha handguard is $100, so is a RRA 2 stage. Misc parts. Badger spacegun gas block, $60 from Midway. Let's see... no way does that add up to more than $300 Pete
