I've got 4 stripped lowers right now... I've got the itch to start putting one together and I'm thinking of having this laser etched onto the lower receiver:


The local trophy shop did a pretty nice job of etching a rifle I built a few years ago for $40. I may go back to them...

Finally got a chance to go out and shoot my new AR. Shot a bunch of cheap ass ammo without a malfunction. The iron sights are good out to 50yards. I think I need an optical sight. Right now I'm trying to figure out where I want to go with that can of worms!

Built this with PSA parts as they went on sale. Trying to see how cheap I could build it. Just got a very good offer on it, so it appears to be sold, and a new one will be made.

Blackhawk stock with complete buffer assembly- $40 shipped

Blackhawk tactical csse with 5 30rd pmags- $70 shipped with upper

Total=$645 with shipping and case with mags.

I have quad rails on the way and a rear sight that were sourced inexpensive as well. Rifle has just short of 200 rounds with no malfunctions whatsoever. Someone I know was so impressed with it he offered me $1000 for it. I was a bit shocked, he knows guns fairly well. I might just take him up on it and build another. PSA has some good deals going that I want to take advantage of,

Palmetto State Armory. For my next build I'm going to wait for the stripped lower with 10 pmags.

Check gun broker. They have a ton of 2nd gen and 3rd gen pmags.

I got 20 30 rounders for $14/each after shipping.

PSA is Ok but I have noticed some variability in their LPKs latley.

I got two with mag release buttons that were smooth on both sides...
