There's nothing cheap about building a top notch AR10. Hitting and surpassing the $2k mark is easy, but damn worth it in my opinion.

Gloves was looking for an AR-10 recommendation. I gave him a recommendation for a boltgun based on his needs.

He, instead, wanted a recommendation on what AR-10 I would build given his criteria.

As Gloves doesn't have, apparently, connections to a gunshop as I have. So, I recommended the best barrel, assembled by a top quality shop, that would allow for the best accuracy.

Now. If we had a definitive "Can Not Exceed" budget, that is another story altogether.

Nah. He asked me what I thought my spec'd rifle would cost minus the scope.

We haven't discussed a budgeted AR-10 yet. I suspect that is next.

What Scope did you go with? That'll end up being a whole different thread once I have the rifle.
I went with a Sightron S3 8-32x56 LR FCH.

I think when most people talk about building an AR they mean building a lower and attaching an assembled upper. It's just that in my case, I learned as I built, and knowing what I know now, I'd build what I think you are trying to build, an M110 clone. Also I'm not totally happy with the fit between the CMMG lower and the DPMS upper. I ended up adding a JP tensioning take down pin to take up the slop.

I live in Fremont, and I'm still on the SCAR 17 waiting list at Valkyrie Arms
Milpitas. tell me what it is that you got at Irvington Arms. My cousin loves
them but I got a bunch of lip from them when i talked to them, haven't
been back since.

F.T. Peeps:
The $1500 is a guideline. The scope is a whole different issue.

$350 for lower
$800 for barrel & upper

(sub-total $1,150)

that leaves:
$350 for furniture (buttsotck + grip)

So... Still need to get a lower and upper married together within that
price range + barrel.
