Of course!

I went to a local gun shop today a wouldn't you know it they had a sale on lowers 2 for $100 of the Anderson mfg. am-15. I just spent $800 to build this one and I just couldn't help myself and got two more.

I put about 90 rounds through it today of cheap Tula ammo. It did have a failure to feed a round got stuck between the bolt and feed ramp. I'm hopeing it's because the cheap steel case ammo and it's new and needs breaking in.

Awesome, told you it's addictive!! PSA can be frustrating at times with shipping and such, but the quality and price make up for it IMO.

Building these rifles now while prices are good and most importantly available is like putting $$$ in the bank. I know most of us remember the way things were a year ago.

Nice build. Congrats.


If this is the first time you've read this, up until now you think I typed this out in response to this thread. Well, the jokes on you. This is my signature line. Know it, embrace it, love it.

I have been doing a ton of research and have decided a build is the way to go. Sounds cool because you can do it as your time and budget allows. Damned if I didn't have enough hobbies. Looks like I will have to sell off some of my straight razor collection lol.
