I own a couple AR's but never built one. I quicly found it was like restoring a car, lots of options and easy to get off budget quickly. For my first build I wanted to do it all and do it for a reasonable price. This is what I ended up with. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and seems to be a good shooter. I've only had time to put 60 rounds down range.

I'm going deep sea fishing with Gary this weekend and taking this along, I hope he has learned since the last time I went out with him.
