Great job junho. Was that at 100 yards or ? Not bad shooting with a piece that you put together yourself.

We'll have to make you the new 'poster child' for all the new members here or for the rest of the group who have been wanting to put an AR together for the first time or by themselves, but are a little tentative.

Junho has taken on that challenge and from the pictures, has put together an AR to be proud of. GOOD JOB!

Agreed Slo - +1 on that.

I put a sticky on the thread for a bit. It will be near the top of the AR board for a while to inspire new and veteran members considering building their first AR.

Well done junho!

JD

50 rounds through it - Any problems?

How did it feed and eject?

Any problems getting the brass out and away in time to feed the next round from the mag?

How was the recoil?

All in all - how do you feel about your first build?

JD
i used remington 55 grain to zero it in
not a single problem (but then again its only 50 rounds )
feed like a dream and ejected just as well
recoil was surprisingly small. i'm used to a 22 and expected alot more for some reason...
for the first build i'm very satisfied. the guy at the gun shop even gave it a "good to go" thumbs up
i even snickered a little when i saw a guy today buying a S&W AR-15 for $1200

Very nice AR. Are you planning on adding any accessories in the future?

Putting on a red dot scope will balance out your M4 pretty nicely. Seems like you'll have co-witnessing iron sights, which is awesome for taking longer shots without having to change your configuration.

The best thing about this thread, in my opinion, is that the TS didn't know anything about building his own weapon a few months ago, and budget was a concern.

Not only did he build a kick ass rifle on his first try out of the gate, he did the whole thing for under $700.

Very cool.

Very nice work, junho! Not only did you score a good rifle for not a lot of money, but you gained the knowledge of how to assemble it. That counts for a lot!

Agreed. That's what I have exactly -- a Bushnell holosight cowitnessing my iron sights.

Junho,

Here's another link for you, and possibly an answer to your red dot....

http://www.del-ton.com/SPOT_Scope_p/op1011.htm

Yes, I know...it's an Aimpoint CLONE. But from the reviews I've read on it, it is one of the better ones out there. And the price is right.
