    ...is the influence it sometimes exerts over my wallet.

    Been shopping around for a complete patrol type setup for a bit now. I was gonna order a Noveske Basic MOE, but they're not filling orders until they land some more barrel blanks. So...I just put 50% down on this 6lb Daniel Defense M4v3 middy.

    How is this a bad thing?

    I mean, yeah, it put a dent in your wallet. So do women, and you don't get a sweet AR when that happens.

    Excellent choice, sweeper! I'll warn you though, a few of us here who got a V3 added a BCM twin within a year or so. It's gotta be this site, not our fault, right... :p

    WTF? I'm already in the process of building a 14.5" BCM/MOE middy on my Noveske chainsaw lower. I guess you can add my name to that list.

    I'm in the process of adding 3 AR's in the coming weeks. The DD, the Nov/BCM build, and waiting on a backordered 8lb RRA Operator for range fodder. The RRA will wear a scope. Between the other two, one will be iron sights, one a nice red dot (EoTech 512 maybe) with flip-up BUIS.

    Very nice. I disagree with the influence this place has on your wallet. I've been here since 2010 and this place STILL hasn't put enough money in my wallet to buy something like that. :mad:

    That's why so many of us build our own, $100 here and $200 there, buy the parts as you can afford them. The biggest expense is a complete upper but even that you can separate somewhat or save up for a few months. If you buy a stripped lower you will finish the AR, that's a guarantee!

    Very nice SUR you got there.. This place has infected more people with BRD than you can count :eek: I had just purchased my first when I found this place then they said " hey build one anyone can do it " now they have multiplied to 7 and 1/2 and just waiting for an upper to complete my latest.

    Winds, trust me. I know very little about AR's, but I was able to put my lower together pretty easily. You also have a ton of experts on here that would be more than willing to help.

    If you so choose, you can buy in segments that are tantamount to snapping together a handful of Legos.

    Me being far from an expert, I don't see myself straying from mostly complete uppers...maybe I'll add my own handguard, BCG, charging handle...but that's about it. And that requires no more skill than the most basic field strip.

    WOC, I can guarantee installing the safety/selector into an AR is easier than on a Mark II Ruger! If you are good with your hands or can get a little help, building up a stripped lower is not terribly hard.

    Or you can get a complete lower and a complete upper and pin them together to finish the rifle. Lots of guys here do that and call it a build. I wouldn't argue with that if they put a lot of thought into what went in to each and bought the right parts.
