My latest project AR is almost done, if you want pics then someone with a good digi camera and a place to host the picture will have to assist.
It started out as an AR carbine for as cheap as I could make it. That idea didn't last, blame TxLewis and El Roto for their harebrained lightweight ideas for corrupting the cheap AR. It's a skinny, pencil barrel, naked muzzle flattop in Coyote Brown. I'm waiting for the DPMS rear sight, not a flip up, from Kiesler's to get here. It's about 3-4 inches shorter than my all RRA parts homemade 16" HBAR A2 with Wilson comp. It also weighs a ton less.
I'm thinking about tossing the charging handle and getting a new one from RRA, you wouldn't think it but there is a difference. I may splurge for a NM trigger group. The EO Tech 511 is on layaway, I'll have it next paycheck. I got the C4 handguards, I may swap those out for the skinny standard carbine ones.
Anyways, the dumb thing started as an idea to see if I could build an AR for the wife for under $450. It's at about $680, not including a NM trigger group $120, new skinny handguards $35 and a better charging handle $11.
For my next trick I'll make a stubby bull barreled flattop with no irons for under $400....does this building your own stuff ever stop?
