You can't learn without asking.

Default Rifle dummies NATO 5.56

I can't find the rifle, dummy, cartridges for 5.56 NATO. Not even at Brownells.

Sorry, I meant to start new thread. Will restart a new one.

What is your strategy?
I love shopping on line but...

I hope I'm not asking too many questions.
Personally, if I have a large order I want to place I look for a single supplier that has most (if not all) of what I want who will forego the shipping charges over a certain order dollar amount.

I also try to wait for Sales at these various favored suppliers. The Labor Day Holiday is coming up soon for instance and I wouldn't be too surprised if the various suppliers out there don't have a big Labor Day Sale.

It seems like there's always be a few things you want that aren't on sale or at your favorite supplier and you just have to bite the bullet and order them up anyway with shipping charges and all.

BTW, we all had questions when we started bulding our AR's.

Are you talking about "Snap Caps" like these?

Amazon.com: Traditions Performance Firearms Aluminum Rifle Snap Cap (.223): Sports & Outdoors


ETA: Brownells says they have them in stock here:

Shipping does add up so going for the lowest price on every component at various online vendors can bite you from behind. You just have to look for deals on quality components and shipping like Snake said. Patience can pay off.

It's hard for anyone to tell you exactly what to do since prices are a moving target. For example whatever I did earlier this year would be different now. We all have our great deals and a few not so great.

BTW, we don't mind questions here, RC.

Any of the good 6 Position Collapsible Stocks from Rock River, Bushmaster, Stag and others are good and come as a kit.
And are not unreasonably priced. You may find one at a good buy also at a local gun show!

I would though, if at all possible, get a milspec diameter RE and stock. Many brands are milspec but many are the larger commercial size. It doesn't matter terribly if you go commercial as long as replacement stocks you like fit your tube. But the odds of compatibility are much higher if you go milspec originally. The RE should be stronger as well.

Find the lowest prices from a single internet store to save on shipping.

The MOE cana be found very inexpensive, usually around $60. The CTR will run you just under $100.
