Now I could just do overtime for the next two months, and buy a top of the line Bushmaster.

Or, I can enjoy life a little, do this a piece at a time, and show the process throughout the thread. I can make mistakes, and the readers can either learn or lend expertise.

My build, and my soul, are on display.

It will take awhile, but you'll see this beast built from the bones up.

This box of ammo is $12 that could have gone to something else. It is a symbol, a beginning.

Enjoy the ride.
Quit poetic, but means nothing until we see some pics

Do tell.
I'm soliciting intel now, and I invite everyone's 2cents.

All that is certain at this point is that it will be 5.56, and I'll explain that to those who don't know.

If I make an error, I beg EVERYONE to jump in and point it out.

As I said, money is tight, if someone catches a costly booboo before I make it, then post haste.

But you have the first pic, of the first component.

Trust me, this will be updated everytime I acquire as much as a spring.

I'll be critiquing every company I deal with, and every component.

The point of this thread is to be of use to those considering a similar endeavor, but maybe are afraid to ask the questions.

And I'll be hitting you up for your expertise.

I'll assume there were things you would do differently on build one that you figured out by build seven, I need to learn those things.

I am very inexperienced with AR's but these look like quality.

Out of The AR's i have shot i think 2 used these, both were rental guns, but never had any Fail to feeds or jamming issues

Cammenga Easy Mags. There are NONE better outside of Tripps, which are well beyond the budget of this build. I can loan you a couple to get you a feel of both a good mag and a great mag.
