I was curious as to if I got a good deal @ $880 for everything.

Thanks,
James

Not a bad deal. It isn't exactly an M4 style. It looks like an Israeli clone. CAR stock, A1 upper receiver, M4 barrel and handguards, and innertube sections on grip, etc. several people built these up as parts guns. It's not a bad configuration as long as you want to keep things simple and don't want to run optics or overload it with crap. I like them as a KISS platform.

880$ In this market is a good deal... Please they are standard ar mags not high cap mags.. Ar 15 were intended to have 30rds in the mag

Welcome!

Some people at gunshows today will pay that much for your loaded magazines!

So you got an almost free AR !

Enjoy!

The lower is from Stag Arms. Not sure about the upper, but the gun seems to be a build.
Were the market stable right now I'd say you paid a bit too much, but given current times its not a bad price.

Looks like a nice piece of hardware, like someone intended to use her like a girl you picked up off of some corner!

Double your money on gunbroker.com. maybe triple!

What is this "high capacity" you talk of.

what he said! standard mags are 30-rounds. don't buy into the media hype. you have standard, as designed magazines. a high-capacity magazine for that would be a 40-round mag, or a 100-round drum.

30 is the standard.


and as others have said...in this market where ARs are like white buffaloes, you did pretty good. 3 months ago...maybe a bit on the high side.


I just sold a polymer lower (with a non-collapsible stock swapped onto it) and a 20" bushmaster upper to my buddy for $600. A2 style receiver with the carry handle and iron sights.
