    This thread will be a year in the making, and I'll be updating as it unfolds.

    But to get started, here I go....

    So to start building and AR, you bought ammo, which you cant use until you have a fully assembled AR.

    You sir lack logic :p

    Ah, the young. :rolleyes:

    How silly and purpose lacking they live their lives. They do not understand the inner workings of a brain the size of TWMIM's.

    The man has a goal and needs a reminder of it Young Padwan. Perhaps you just subscribe, sit back and enjoy the show. :cool:

    I would think an unfinished ar sitting on his work bench would be a good reminder, but i will trust your wisdom and merely observe for the time.

    I too will be watching this thread with great anticipation. What do you have in mind for caliber, brands, optics etc.

    Do tell.

    I now have a box of ammo that I have no use for.

    Money is tight for me.

    If I don't do the build, I wasted money.

    This project is one of those things that I keep meaning to do, and something else always pops up.

    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.;)

    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.:cool:

    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. ;)
