Default .300 bo

Hey guys, this is my first post. But I've been wanting/needing a good build ar in .300bo and my requirements are
>$1000 at most-ish
>reliable
>flat top full length rail
>right handed

Also if anyone knows anything about it I heard I could replace a .223 barrel on an ar15 and then it be a .300bo if I can do this how hard would it be and how long would this take? If barrel and ar hit about 1k please inform me of wich, brand, model, acessability, etc.
Many thanks, assain618

The bare minimum if you already have an ar15 is just a barrel.

This is where I saw it. If you want the most cost effective way to get a quality rifle, I would pick up a stripped lower and a build kit and then add an upper...

I've heard good stuff about DSArms FALs but not about their ARs.

What were you wanting from your .300BLK? Hunting, range toy?

I built one by exchanging out the barrel on a 5.56 AR I already had. I did purchase a new bolt carrier group for it as well.

I would personally get my all my parts minus barrel from Ammunition, Magazines, Rifle Parts and Accessories then get a barrel from another supplier. Delta Company Arms, LLC machined a barrel for me exactly how I wanted it.

Thanks so far guys, i want a good quality gun but I just can't seem to find them for a reasonable price.

I am interested a lot in the barrel switch from .223 to .300 BO

Got any ideas or know company that makes one that has flat upper rail ? (Still keeping me in the price range)

IMO, there isn't much difference between PSA and DSA. I have owned parts from both and everything functioned 100%.

The last AR (5.56) that I assembled ended up like this:

Upper from DSA - $235
Stripped Spike's lower from LGS -$90
Build kit from PSA (LPK and stock kit) - $90
Used M16 BCG locally -$80

Roughly $500 and it runs 100% with about 600 rounds down the pipe right now.

So, with the .300 upper you could be under $600 and have a solid rifle. But it all depends on what you want to do and how much you want to spend. LoL!
