. Not only this but lets look at this there is a projectile moving at 3240 feet per second away from you and behind it is a ball of exploding expanding gases oh by the way its a foot from your face. Do you really want to cut it cheap and skimp on quality parts? How much is your life worth? Is it worth saving a couple hundred bucks?
Totally agree. I built my AR for around $800 and that's with some parts that I wanted and spent a little more on parts that you can go cheaper on like the butt stock, handguard, and sights, the parts that are okay to go cheaper on. You can find a s&w M&p 15 sport for $600. Where they have gone cheaper on the barrel(melonite vs chrome lined), no forward assist, no dust cover and a cheaper trigger. But it is still a reliable rifle that has been proven by many AR abusers.
So for that kit your looking at $450 shipped, I think. Then $80 to $100 for a lower reciever. That's $550. For $50 more you can find a M&p 15 sport. I'd go with name brand and warranty for $50 over that $550 skeptically kit any day.
