    Hey FirstBubba, how's the AR coming along?

  • #2
    It's slow!
    Let's back up a tad.
    With all the proper tools and training, I'm sure an AR can be built pretty quick. I have "some" of both, but not everything.
    Sooooo.... this is going to be a long, slow process.
    I'm figuring it'll take me a year as I shop around, pricing and feeling different bits, pieces and parts, and acquiring tools and knowledge along the way.
    There is a local gent that was a military armorer, he'll be my go to when I hit walls.

    So far, I've found the lower kit I want. I'll pick that up on the first of Feb.
    From there, probably the stock.

        I started a thread on "The Firing Line" titled "Are You An AR Builder?".
        Here on the Answer board, threads disappear within a day or so.
        My hope was to "kinda" start a spot where those interested in AR's and "building" their own could bat around ideas or seek help/assistance.
        For instance.
        Did you know "most" AR builders buy and complete stripped lowers, but buy completed uppers?
        To me? What's the point? Just go buy a rifle!
        I intend to build both lower AND upper.

          Bubba, I don't know if it will fit your budget but I have been longing for a Magpul PRS stock since the first day I had my Bushmaster. It really holds my cheek weld on the relatively high scope of an AR. It also allows you to drop a mono-pod off its bottom rail. That mono-pod in combo with a bipod, lets you easily smack varmints at 500 to 600 yards and more. I will have one some day.
