Default Armalite AR-7 Build

Since you assemble it from components in the stock, is that technically considered a "build"?

You're killing me here.

If you purchase one, and want to make it better, there are improvements that could be done.

If you chose to go that route, you would thus be in the process of "building" a new, revised and more accurate AR-7.

Assembling one from the pieces in the stock is no different than putting your pistol back together from a good cleaning.

Well I know that, but since I don't have the skill to do what you guys do, I still want to fit in.

I'm calling it a build.

Uhh...no, it's not a build.

I got a pistol grip, new stock and a better barrel for mine. It still breaks down small enough to fit in a backpack, but the old stock isn't in play.

If you have $120-$150 burning a hole in your pocket, go get one. It's a pretty underwhelming rifle. It doesn't suck, but it's nothing to flip out over either.

I wouldn't waste my time on that, if you want UltiUber Tacticool go for an FMG9. Now that is Tacticool Equip for your BOB, even has a light.
