Thanks for the breakdown my wife wants one but I'm not trying to spend slot because she will lose interest sooner than later

Its a win win for you if she looses interest.. I could only hope that my wife looses interest, so that I get her AR also...

Yup. Help her build a quality AR. She loses interest, you inherit a reliable, high quality back up. She maintains interest, your wife has a reliable, high quality firearm of her own.

I get what your saying but I usually have one tricked out Best of what have you and that's all I use so another one of equal or almost as good as mine is a waste for me.

Oh I won't be losing interest. In fact I'm so interested now, I'm pretty sure I need another one. Like yesterday.

I balked at the cost of my husband's AR, but then I started building my own, and the expense ceased to matter anymore. I just kept finding more and more accessories and parts I just "had to have", and I ended up spending about $230 more than he did on his build. Go figure, lol.

I think you need a bigger gun now, Shiny. How bout a nice 20" Kreiger with free floated rails, Geissele SDE with a bipod and an Elcan Digital Hunter.

GOGOGO!
