I've not been an AR-15 guy, but this past Winter I decided I wanted to own one before the politicians took them away from us. The problem was that everyone else wanted an AR too, and they became as rare as hen's teeth, and as costly as gold.
Since I couldn't find an actual AR, for a reasonable price, I decided to assemble one from components bought on auction sites. In this video I'll show you the result, built on a New Frontier polymer lower and a Palmetto State Armory upper.
I installed a Timney Trigger, and a Colt safety lever into the lower. I put on a set of Diamond Head flip up sights and a four power scope and took it to the range for a little plinking.
