My next question is, I don't know anything about building guns, so how easy is it really? I mean is its just buying parts and putting them together mostly, or is there a lot more too it then that? For someone like me is it something I can do but just following directions?
i'm glad that this thread has inspired you
yeah for me i only spent a grand in total and ended up with a great quality firearm (spent about 700 just to get the standard basic AR-15)
i took it too the gun show to buy some accessories and you can't believe how many people commented on how great the rifle was
and yes you can build it as you go i too don't have money just lying around
i spent most the summer and all of the fall to build it
and honestly you need very little experience to build something like this
like for me...this is only the second firearm i've owned/built
i just recently got into firearms about 6 months ago so i was very new to the whole firearm thing so i was afraid about tackling something like this
but honestly with a good guide (which i can email to you if you like) and good helpful people (like the guys here at firearmstalk) you can do it yourself!
but you also have to remember that you'll need a few tools
so what do you think?
