Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

www.bravocompanyusa.com

They have a bunch of different uppers. I am building 1 with the 16"BFH mid length light weight upper. $489
Cosmetic blemished lowered is $269.
Bolt carrier group and charging handle come to $185.
So that's $943. Add a stock and handguard of your choice and a rear sight and you well under $1500. Maybe even enough left for an aimpoint micro h1 depending on the handguard. They sell a lot of uppers with different handguards already installed.
Also can check out www.gandrtactical.com
They carry all the BCM stuff and can be ordered with different stuff on them as well.
Hope this helps

What is your intended use?

What ranges are you anticipating?

What kind of ammo do you wanna use?

Price includes optics, mags, sling?



For me personally with a 10.5 sbr, 300 blackout with aac supressor, with Noveske witchblock, UBR, ad Geissele SDC......I think I can do that for $1500......

Enlighten me . You're at $400 just for the trigger and stock, 1k+ for the upper, another 1k+ for the can and stamp, $600+ for the lower and second stamp, and finally a couple hundred for a 200 round case of subs. What's that $3200, lol. $3200 and 6 months of your time Do you have some secret squirrel firearms supply store you shop at?

Stag Arms mod 4 flat top with flip up rear sight and a 6 power scope. That would probably run $650-$850.
Then I would go to joeboboutfitters.coom and get a plum crazy complete lower for $119 and then put a new grip on it.

If you don't mind mis-match you can get pretty much any AR configuration you want for a lot less than you think.
