You must remember that this rifle is made to be taken care of my PVT in the Army. If you have never been in the military let me tell you PVT are the DUMBEST forms of life on this planet. I know I was one once. I was a unit armor in the Army for a while and I can tell you building is easier than knockin up your girl.....

I went the oh hell buy it route. But I do plan on acquiring parts over the next year or two for a build for my son.

the rifle I purchased is not exactly what I want but it is close enough for me to work with right now.

Nike it!

I did it the other way; bought gun, then I decided to build one.

If I had built one first, I would NEVER have bought a complete gun!

I have both the AR and the AK and would rather work on the AR any day over the euro-trash!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
