^ Sounds great junho. Look forward to seeing the new unit.

Just remember there are some AR haters out there that will tell you that you shouldn't have done this or that won't work.

I like to think that if you are happy with the unit, and you know how the damn thing works, inside and out, then it's your money and you can spend it however you want.

Best of luck with the new acquisitions....

Nice mods. Looks like you put together a well built AR.

yeah I kind like the quad rail look/cooling ability but that's me.... is the rail on that forearm close enough for a front grip?

there's no rail that goes all the way across the bottom so no front grip
i went with this one because i never really liked front grips

This is a great thread, its inspiring and makes me want to go out and try to build one myself. Nice thing is that I don't have a lot of money to do it with and I could probably buy a few parts at a time, and just build as I go couldn't I? 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?

I am all about it. Even my wife thinks the idea is great. I would love to get that guide from you. I have a buddy that will probably build one with me too so that makes it even better. The other thing thats kinda cool about building your own, is that it makes the gun more then just another gun. There is more behind it and even something that would be great to hand down to your kids or something in the future.
