So I've been threatening to post pics of my "scrap" AR, upon completion. Well, After receiving my ejection port rod and springs yesterday, it was off to the garage and finished shortly! I've basically been buying Clearance, Used and "Economical" parts here and there for the last several months. I know I wanted a less expensive "truck gun" for camping, hiking, etc., just to throw in the back seat and not worry about cases, shooting in muddy conditions, scratching my finish or breaking/tweaking anything on the rails. I guess Durability was my #1 trait, followed by ease of use and reliability. The layout came from handling my Bushmaster Dissipator, A2 upper, but it's set up for night time use and was a gift from my Dad (bought during the election scare $$$), so that was a no go. But, I liked the hassle free set up and transport, I knew I wanted a milled carry handle. I almost nabbed an Armalite A1 upper (trade-in), but the owner of the shop stepped in on the sale and kept it for himself. But he did contribute quite a bit. I bought some lights, slings and other accessories one day and he let me root through their parts that were pulled off of trade ins and replaced. (Note the $Free$ below) Anyways, I imagine folks wouldn't mind a break down, so here it is. All parts were bought separately, even if from the same place, as sales popped up. Seems like I might have listed this before, but here it is with the pics. Lower: Surplus Arms and Ammo lower $60 Surplus LPK $50 A2 Stock $FREE$ Upper: A2 upper (used) w/ FA and sights $60 Surplus Arms BCG $85 Yankee hill CH (used) $10 Del-Ton Dissipator Barrel $150 Armalite (used) rifle quad rail $35 A2 flash hider $Free$ Front Sight $Free$ Ejection Port Cover $Free$ Ejection port cover rod & springs $6 Total: $456 Took a lot of patience, but it was worth it and the gun is solid as hell! Its got some weight to it, so I'll probably end up with a "Sharks tooth" flash hider or another type of "glass breaking" one. Here's the pics.
