Default New rifle.

I've made up my mind. This is the rifle I will be purchasing this year. I have an agreement with the wife. Ok not an agreement but a somewhat quasi understanding that I go to school, I get 2 new guns. One per year at least. Reason being is I give up all me free time during the week, make extra money going to school and I need something for a reward.

I would build one as that is what I am in the extended process of doing! You can smuggle in the parts above and beyond the projected budget if you need to.

The lower build takes 1 hour tops.....don't know about the upper though as that is my next step. I would think 1 hour at the most as well. Any procurement through whatever means is a VICTORY!
