My "other" AR
« on: August 31, 2016, 12:07:00 PM »
This was actually the first AR I built anything on.   In this case the lower.  The upper is a STAG but on that I have also replaced the bolt with a PSA Nickel Boron Premium BCG and the handguard with MagPul. 





A much simpler and lighter AR.  To be honest there's a lot to be said for simpler.

I like it.   thumb1

The AR I wanna build requires about $1500.  You have any spare cash?

Nice..  thumb1 

I had this, shot half a mag, maybe a full mag, I tried, and then it sat for 2 maybe 3 years. Just didn't interest me, I have Glocks, S&Ws and what not.



Like I said, I ripped my optic off and traded it off for this.. chuckles1

I said I was an addict. I didn't say I had a problem.

It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what....

Nope.  My other one I built is more in that price range not counting the optic.  The nice thing about AR's though is you can buy them one piece at a time.

It's actually never had a failure of any kind.  Honestly that's not all that surprising though since I clean my guns each range trip and it's never been dragged through the mud or anything "tacti-cool" like you see people doing on YouTube.  My tacti-cool days are as far gone as my waist line...  :-X


I'd put it up against any other AR though, I think it would hold it's own.
