Buying An AR15

Hey Chuck, what's your status? Did you decide to come to the dark side and purchase a AR rifle or maybe build your own?

Just wondering.

Anyone contemplating the purchase of an AR might well do it now. I see that the platform being built by Biden & Co. plan to introduce radical "gun reform" that includes a complete ban of the MSR should these fools actually win the election. There's much more we should be afraid of in their plan related to firearms, like a license to own what you already have!

Everyone here most likely is conservative anyway, but the last thing we need is the libtards in charge any time soon.

This may be the most important election in our recent history.

The last couple years has been an excellent time to buy an AR for availability, selection and perhaps the lowest prices I have seen, ever. If a guy hasn't already purchased what he wants and has waited until the Corona panic and beginning of election season... well... whatever.

I've read books and articles on building one and decided that's the way to go. I guess you could say I'm in the twilight zone, I have a stripped lower, upper, trigger and gas block.

Thank the good Lord you don't live in VA. I live in SW VA and I'd be glad to become a WVA.

Chuck43, can you give specifics or is that a PM? My son has a S&M AR.

That's good to hear Chuck. I didn't know you was that far along in the process. Just a matter of time now...I thought I just needed 1, hmmm I have 3 now. Which for lots of people is nothing but it's a lot for me.

Has anyone here put a 300 BLK upper on their AR 15?

If anybody's in the market for free float handguards, STNGR is a very reasonably priced, all American made, quality company. Really impressed with the couple I've installed.

The parts I have at this point are...

An Aero Precision M4E1 stripped upper and lower receiver
M4E1 Lower Parts Kit Minus FCG
A RISE Armament RA-140 trigger
An ODIN Works tunable low profile gas block

I know what I want for the build but I'm not in a hurry to finish it because there is no where near me to shoot it. I'm just watching for sales and snagging the parts as they are being discounted.

I put a 300 black out upper on my bushmaster a couple years ago. I think I got it from joe bobs. Works great, I just used the same bolt carrier and charging handle, got a dedicated mag and put 300 blk out on it and I was good to go.
